How Little Paws Got Started….  

I had just moved to North Carolina from Germany and I didn’t know the area at all.   I was getting ready to take a trip but taking my dogs and cat were totally out of the question.  One of my dogs would rather jump out the car window than to sit quietly, so I ended up boarding them.  

The result was that they all came back home with separation anxiety (and kennel cough). Who’s to blame them, in their minds they probably thought they’d never see me again after that experience!  

The next time a trip came up, I vigorously searched the phone book for an alternative to boarding.  I found a pet sitting company and decided to try it out. When I returned home from this trip, my furry babies were very content and healthy!  And, the added bonus of knowing that my home was also looked after, sold me on pet sitting versus boarding.  

I was so impressed with my pet sitting experience,  that when I moved to Colorado Springs in 1996,  I decided to go into the pet sitting business myself so I could offer this wonderful service to pet owners like me!

 Animals have always been my passion. I’m the kind of person who’ll stop and pull over while driving because there’s a stray dog on the side of the road. I have volunteered for All-Breed Rescue as well as 9-Lives Rescue. My house is like Noah’s Ark….three dogs, five cats, a bunny, dozens of happy fish and a bare-eyed cockatoo. Birds and squirrels also know where to find me when they’re ready for some good food.  I  always go the extra mile to make sure all animals are taken care of.  

That is also my philosophy with Little Paws. My lovely Pet Sitters go through a screening process that includes checking previous employers and running a police report before I hire them. It is extremely important to me that the ladies who work for me have some pets of their own and that they represent Little Paws in a positive, dependable and caring way. Just the way I do. With this in mind, please know that your Pet Sitter, whether it is myself or another Little Paws Pet Sitter, has only your best interest in mind: To love, care for and pamper your pet the same way you would, if you were at home.
