Celebrating National Pet Sitters Week
Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care encourages pet owners and pet lovers alike to celebrate the 20th annual Professional Pet Sitters Week, March 2-8, 2014. Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW) was introduced by Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 1995.
This international week of recognition seeks to educate pet owners about the advantages of using professional pet sitters, as well as to encourage the public to explore professional pet sitting as a viable and rewarding career opportunity.
This year, PSI member business Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care is commemorating Professional Pet Sitters Week by teaming with Happy Endings Animal Rescue Team (HEART).
· For every like on the Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care – Chesterfield Facebook site, Snaggle Foot will be donating a dollar to HEART up to $500. https://www.facebook.com/
· For every new client (pet sit or dog walk) that signs up with us that week we will be donating $5.00 to HEART.
· Snaggle Foot owner and pet sitters will be joining HEART with pet adoptions at PETCO in Chester so you can meet us there on March 8. Snaggle Foot will be raffling a prize and all donations will go to the benefit of the HEART animals.
Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care is committed to providing the best quality service to our pet-owning clients and is excited to celebrate this week that recognizes the pet-sitting industry on a global scale,” says Terri Harbut, Owner of Snaggle Foot-Chesterfield.
With pet ownership at a record high, the need for pet-care services is greater than ever before.
“Professional pet sitting has become an important service industry in the past 20 years. With the growth of the pet-sitting industry, pet owners do not have to rely on untrained or unwilling friends, family members or neighbors when travel or long work hours keep them from their pets,” says Patti Moran, president of PSI. “Many professional pet sitters put in long hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year, so they can provide personal in-home care for pets of all kinds.”
“These businesses owners and their staffs truly deserve recognition for the optimal pet care and tireless efforts they provide year-round,”
Snaggle Foot-Chesterfield has been a member of PSI since 2012and offers services to pet owners in Chester, Chesterfield, Colonial Height, Fort Lee and Prince George.
For pet owners, at-home pet sitting provides a unique alternative to boarding facilities or having to rely on family and neighbors care for their pets. Pet sitting goes beyond simply feeding and checking on pets. Professional pet-sitting services often include dog walking, care of special needs pets, pet transportation services and pooper-scooper services, in addition to basic pet care.
