Reliable Care When You're Not There

We provide high quality, reliable pet and livestock care for Lorain County. We will come to your home where your pets and livestock are most comfortable to care for them in their familiar environment. Our services include basic feeding & watering, walks & playtime, and cleanup. Typically we work in and around the cities of Vermilion, Amherst, Wakeman, and Oberlin.

I understand from personal experience the difficulty in finding someone to care for your livestock and pets when you want (or need!) to get away. I have 30+ years of experience caring for farm animals, both great and small, as well as domestic house pets! There isn't an animal I'm not willing to work with. I'm happy to pop over to your place to care for 1 cat or a barn full of horses, whatever you need.
