Larry Ulfig

Highly Recommended

We just got home with our two dogs after using The Pet’s Home and we can definitely see that our dogs were well taken care of. Laura Mae sent us text message updates and photos giving us the pleasure of seeing our dogs while we were on vacation. The Pet’s Home concept is unsurpassed and the level of care the very best. We no longer have to worry about traveling and the care of our dogs, we definitely will be back and we are recommending The Pet’s Home to all our dog owning friends.

Pamela J

We recently restarted using Laura mae again after a year or so of using another service. It’s one of the best decisions we have made for our dog! Laura has been very accommodating with our schedules for walks, play dates and most recently our dog’s overnight visit. Both Jessica and Laura mae have treated him as part of the family at his overnight visit, which has put our family at ease. Our regular walker, Vanessa, has been outstanding with our dog. When he refused to go for his walk, Vanessa came back to our house to try again and he decided to go for his walk. She has done this twice for us! CaVanessa informs us of his day and provides pictures as well. I highly recommended the Pet’s home.


Thank You, Sally

My son was getting married in CA and I did not want to once again, gather friends to take care of my cat, Sam. After looking at various Pet’s sitting sites, I chose The Pet’s Home. Sally came out to meet us, see our home and what Sam’s needs would be. So. I went to CA for a week and Sally took care of Sam. She was terrific! Sam was well taken care of and Sally daily sent me a text with a picture of Sam to let me know all was well with him. Sam took to Sally very well, which is the reassurance you always want.

Melissa Arroyo

Great Experience!! We used the Pets’ home in Sept 2016. We were gone 5 days. It was so nice to know that our 2 dogs were being cared for in the comfort of their own home. It was also reassuring to know they were being cared for by someone who cares about Pet’s. Sally was so wonderful from the time we met her to the day we arrived home. She kept us updated with pics, she walked them every day, she played with them, and gave them love. Not having to worry about our dogs made our trip relaxing and enjoyable! Thanks Sally! We would definitely use the Pets’ home again in the future.

Patti Winkel

Laura Mae was so helpful in short notice!

Art And Angie

We just found The Pet’s Home recently when we were looking to getaway for the weekend. Laura Mae instilled a lot of confidence from the first time we spoke, and her team mate Lisa did a wonderful job. We had a really bad experience with a different sitter in the past, but thanks to these wonderful ladies we can trust our Pet’s are in safe hands when we want to take off again. We loved getting texts with pictures to put our minds at ease about our loved ones at home. We’ll be customers for a long time!


My puggle Reilly Lynn has “play days” 3x per week with The Pet’s Home and

ten minutes before Laura comes to pick her up Reilly starts crying and spinning at the door in anticipation. Laura is by far Mama 11 and Reilly loves her so much. Personally, I love her too. She loves the animals she cares for and runs a prompt, and very professional business. We couldn’t ask for better care for Reilly when we are not home. Major thumbs up to the Pet’s Home. The Duckett Family.


When I first contacted The Pet’s Home, in addition to my own two cats, I had a mother cat and her five newborn kittens that I was providing foster care for. I was leaving to go out of town for several days and was nervous about how well my cats, especially the kittens would do with me gone. From the fist time I met LauraMae during the meet and greet visit, I knew right away that The Pet’s Home was the right petting sitting service for me. LauraMae was so easy to talk to, and her deep love for animals and her passion for her work was very obvious. During the time that I was away, LauraMae sent me daily updates on how the cats were doing along with pictures. There are no words to describe how those daily texts put my mind at ease while I was away… When I returned home I discovered that everything, right down to the finest detail was done exactly to my specifications. The cats were happy and even the mama cat and her kittens were doing very well. It was as if I had never left! I recommend The Pet’s Home to everyone I know who has a Pet’s. To me, nothing is more valuable than having complete peace of mind when I’m away from my cats.

Mark And Kitty Congdon

Laura Mae’s business “The Pet’s Home” says it all. Our two cats not only receive the care they need, but they also get the benefit of staying home where everything is familiar. This is much more preferable than hauling them to the kennel in their carriers where they get stressed by all the loud noises, unfamiliar surroundings, and foreign smells of other animals. We also do not have to drop them off and pick them up during typical “office hours”. We appreciate being able to depend on The Pet’s Home.

Kelley Pickering

We met LauraMae almost four years ago, the proud – and both commuting – parents of a 5-month-old labrador. We needed someone to stop by our house five days a week, several times a day, and let our little Bella out, play with her, and give her the attention we weren’t around during the day to give.She made sure Bella had plenty of playing time – often taking her on “field trips” to see other dogs in the neighborhood Laura took care of. It was obvious how much care and attention Bella got – we got home from work after long days to find an exhausted labrador, happy to nap after hours of running and playing. Laura also helped us with training. We know that Bella is in the best possible hands in her care, and it’s clear that Laura genuinely loves the animals she sits for.

Nora And Paul Lombardo

LauraMae is punctual, responsible and trust-worthy. She provides Pet’s owners in our neighboring communities the piece of mind to know our Pet’s are loved and well-cared for during our absences from home.She is a positive presence in our dogs’ daily life and actually our family’s as well. I would highly recommend that if you are in need of a Pet’s sitting service, The Pet’s Home is un-doubtfully your only option.

Leah Rife

LauraMae is a kind and caring individual who puts others before herself. Laura Mae practices those same outstanding characteristics with the quality and care she gives her clients Pet’s. We would never consider calling anyone else to take care of our dog Brandy when we are out of town.

Laura Harriman

Laura Mae is wonderful! She has been Pet’s sitting for our two Old English Sheepdogs for years. Whether it’s a quick weekend away or an extended vacation, we can leave with the piece of mind that they are being well cared for. Laura Mae has gone above and beyond on more than one occasion. Laura Mae and her employees always put the needs of our dogs first!
