“HOME SWEET HOME” TRAVELLING: SHOULD YOUR PET STAY OR GO?

PLANNING A TRIP?

Pet owners planning to travel for business or pleasure have an important decision to make.  Should you take your companion animals along or leave them at home.  While we know how tempting it may be to take them along, you have to consider that some animals are not suited to travel due to temperament, illness, or physical impairment.

The most humane approach is to think of the animals needs first.  You may think that your dog won’t be able to tolerate separation from you and taking him is a good idea.  But if you are vacationing, will you have to leave him in a hotel room or strange kennel?  This will make your pet more anxious than ever, so finding a good, experienced pet sitter and leaving your pet in his own home would probably be a better choice!

 

*Thanks to the Humane Society for being such an outstanding resource for people and their pets!

HOME SWEET HOME PETSITTERS: PETS IN TODAY’S ECONOMY

 

Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters recognizes all to well how devastating these difficult financial times can be.  Many people are struggling just to put food on the table for their families.  You’ve always managed to give your pet the medical care she needs and deserves, but due to unexpected circumstances, you’re faced with vet expenses that are far beyond your ability to afford them.  We are seeing this all to often over the past few years.  We did some research and the good news is that financial aid is out there, and there are steps you can take to cover an emergency vet bill as well as companies in the pet industry that are willing to help.  Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters has been caring for Charlotte Area pets since 1999 and are strong supporters of many outstanding organizations dedicated to the well-being of pets.  We suggest that you check out the links below as they provide a wealth of information on this subject along with a comprehensive list of financial aid-related organizations.
