“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anyone with a pet can relate to this quote – our dogs, cats, horses, reptiles and birds are an important part of our lives and are usually considered family. Jennifer Schneider, owner of Anytime Pet Sitters, understands how strongly people feel about their pets; that’s why she is available to provide the highest quality care for them while you’re on vacation, when you have a long day at the office and can’t make it home until late, or any other time.
Anytime Pet Sitters is a full-time pet sitting and home care service company that is bonded and insured for your protection and peace of mind. Jennifer is committed to treating your pets like members of the family. “As a pet owner, I understand how hard it is to leave your companions behind and know that is why you want the absolute best for them while you are away,” she says. “I care for all types of pets – dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, horses, farm animals, exotics, pocket pets, fish, reptiles, birds and special-needs pets.”
Jennifer grew up in a family of animal lovers. “Pets of all shapes and sizes have been around me all my life. My family has owned almost every kind of pet imaginable, large or small, and I spent many days of my childhood inside our family-owned pet store. Animals have, and always will, hold a special place in my heart.” Jennifer spent eight years as a certified veterinary assistant and veterinary technician before launching her business in 2009.
The benefits of leaving pets at home while you’re away are numerous. They are happier and experience less stress, diet and exercise routines are uninterrupted, and a pet’s exposure to illness is minimized. When Jennifer visits your home to care for your pet, she will always include play time and plenty of love and attention, feeding according to your schedule, putting out fresh water, scooping cat litter and picking up in the yard, cleaning accidents or messes, and administering medications. In addition, she offers dog walking, pet taxi services, and home care services such as mail and newspaper pickup, taking trash to the curb, and watering plants.
As a client of Anytime Pet Sitters, you can relax knowing that your animal companions and your home are being well cared for in your absence. One special service that clients love is that they can check in on their pets every day. “Our website has a members-only area where I post stories and pictures each day about your pets, how they’re doing and what we did, and any interesting or funny things that may have happened,” says Jennifer. “As long as clients have Internet access, they can check on their pets daily from wherever they are. Everyone really enjoys this – it’s comforting to know and see for yourself that your pets are happy.”
Enlisting Jennifer’s help eliminates scheduling drop-off and pick-up times to and from the kennel, and you don’t have to impose on a friend, neighbor or relative. “I make it as convenient as possible and can customize services to your needs. Whether going on vacation or planning a late dinner, my clients can give me a quick call or text any time.”
