Happy Birthday To Us! 98 In Dog Years!

It just boggles my mind that FOURTEEN years ago today Purrfect Pet Sitting was born!  This business has grown beyond my wildest imagination in the past fourteen years.  I have gone from a sole proprietor, doing everything by myself while still working a full time job, to having a staff of four fantastic pet sitters.

We’ve had the pleasure (most of the time) of pet sitting for thousands of pets over the years.  I’m proud to say that the very second client I ever signed up still uses our services to this day.  Our number one client would still be using us but her cat passed away and she never got another one.  We’ve had pet sits we’ve loved, we’ve had pet sits we’ve loathed (thankfully very few).  Either way, we did our very best and made the most of every situation.

As many of you already know Purrfect Pet Sitting was the very first professional pet sitting service in Rensselaer County.  It was an uphill battle to get the business off the ground.  So many people told me “no way” would this type of business ever fly.  Even fourteen years later I’m surprised when I hear someone say “I had NO idea a business like this existed”.

Thank YOU for being part of this journey.  Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do something we love.

As a thank you, please leave a blog comment and we will be selecting one lucky winner for a $25 pet sitting or dog walking credit.  Winner will be selected on Friday, August 8, 2014.

Here’s to another 14 years!

    Wendy – we have lived here for 16 years and it was a LONG 2 years before your business came into existence! I definitely agree – here’s to another 14 years! 🙂

    I want to say Happy Birthday and thank you! When my mommy and daddy are not here for me to jump on their heads at 5am to feed me, you come in (a little later than 5am) and provide me with my needed nourishment!

  7. Mary Lou Young says:

    Congratulations and best wishes for many more years of fantastic service. When we leave our Andy “baby” with you, we can relax knowing he is well taken care of. Thank you for good professional service.

  8. Mary and Vinny Sturn says:

    Congratulations!!! We remember well when you first told us about your new business, and now you celebrate 14 years. Such a comfort to us to leave our precious kitties in such caring and professional hands. When we returned from our last vacation, Amigo and Chico seemed disappointed not to see Maeghan coming in to see them, so that speaks for itself!! Always a treat to read the details of each days visits and certainly a funny incident or two is reported. Thanks so much for giving us peace of mind as we take a vacation. Wishing you many more successful years!!

Not only have you provided excellent care for our pets, you have provided us with advice, and have safeguarded our home and rescued our pet during a difficult family break-in. Thank you and Happy Birthday!

      I have been so pleased to have someone who we can trust come into our home and feed our star boarders! They are so happy when we come home, of course to see us, but well fed, cleaned and no stress. I also like the personal attention of watering my plants when it does not rain!
      Thanks, and congratulations!
