Call Back Hours
We generally return calls Monday – Friday 9am-12pm.
We receive many phone calls per day, It is best to leave a message.
We will return it as soon as possible.
Why do we only return calls during the above time?
We know your time is precious. We are caring for many pets morning, noon and night and want to give those pets our 100% undivided attention. So, when we set aside time to call you, we want to give YOU our 100% undivided attention. YOU and your pets are VERY important to us.
Over 3 decades of being in the pet care business, we have found that most people call us first thing in the morning. Only 1-2 calls a week will come in the afternoon. So, it is very cost effective for us to do all of our calling during the above times.
We are generally extremely busy in the afternoon, may be out in the field and cannot return calls. However, we will always return your phone call during our call back times.
We do check our online scheduler and emails for EMERGENCIES several times a day.
If you Are a registered client and have an emergency, please make sure to book your reservation online AND leave a voice message, you can back it up with and email as well. That way you will be covered, just in case and your phone call will prompt us to go online and approve and confirm your emergency reservation. All reservations must be entered online in your profile and confirmations will be sent out via email.
We can not always help you with boarding in an emergency (due to space) but in most cases if you are a registered pet sitting client it is possible. This is why we always state to register with BOTH companies just in case.
