  ​​​ About My Furry Family

 I Will Treat Your Furry Family Like My Own!      ​Providing Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Services

​​​​​​​​​​​​​I started this business because I love animals, and I want to spend my work day doing something I love. I have been an animal lover and a responsible pet owner of cats and dogs my whole life, and own a small parrot myself. I volunteer regularly for Animalovers and Northeastern Avian Rescue in East Greenbush, helping to find new forever homes for homeless cats and helping care for homeless parrots and birds. 

I spent twenty years working in health care, and ten of those years visiting sick and elderly people in their homes all around the region to give them education. (I have a Masters degree from NYU in Clinical Nutrition). My clients' pets were very often drawn to me. I can't say how many times I've been told, "Wow-she never goes to anyone but us!" about a pet who has come to sit near me or in my lap. The pets can tell that I love them!

I know that taking care of your pet family and being trusted with the keys to your home is a huge responsibility. It's a privilege that I take very seriously. And as part of the excellent customer service provided by My Furry Family, I will treat both your home and your pets as well as I treat my own.
​​​​​​My Furry Family Pet Sitters offers dog walking and pet sitting in northern Columbia County, East Greenbush, and Rensselaer, NY.​ Pet sitting services can sometimes be offered outside of this area, depending on my availability and client needs. Additional charges will apply for for visits outside these areas to cover increased travel time and expenses.

While you are away, small tasks to make your home look lived are included, such as bringing in mail, moving trash cans, watering plants, or adjusting blinds and lights. If you need a service not listed, just ask and I will try to accommodate you. 

Pets will be fed, given fresh water, played with, talked to and walked, as per your instructions. Litter boxes will be scooped, bird cages re-papered, and that trash removed. Medications can be provided too, if needed. And of course, your pets will get lots of snuggles and love! I will even leave a note or send you a daily text with a pic of your pet, if you like. 

All pets need to be non-aggressive toward people. Dogs must be able to walk without excessive pulling on a leash. Pets should be rabies vaccinated.
