…. Annie has always been the “girl next door” whom neighbors and friends called upon to watch their animals.
There’s no place like home – you now can have peace of mind when you need to be away knowing your beloved family pets can be well cared for in their own environment, where they are most comfortable. Annie of All About Services will come to your home to provide high quality, personal, customized care so your pets have daily companionship, sleep in their own bed, keep their regular feeding and exercise schedule, have playtime with their favorite toys and avoid the stress and anxiety of a boarding kennel. Your pet’s health, happiness and well-being are Annie’s priority, as is the security of your home.
Annie’s forte is primarily cats and dogs, though there have been the occasional fish, bunnies, chickens, birds, tortoises, salamanders, and hermit crabs. She prefers to leave the reptiles to the experts in that field. She has always loved animals. Her first was a stray kitten who showed up on the family doorstep when she was in 1st grade. It took 10 days of begging, but their Father gave in and fed this beautiful little kitty her first meal in days. Little did he know, Annie and her sister had been sneaking food out to the kitty, already named Rosie, to be sure she stuck around until their dad gave in. Rosie, lived a long and wonderful life of 18 years, being dressed up, going for rides in a baby pram, following Annie everywhere she went whether it was to school, the park or to a friend’s to play. There have been other dogs, “Animal” and “Tinkerbell” and cats since.

Annie is the first person we call when we travel. We trust her to care for our home and our cats, Koko and Moka, who she’s cared for frequently over the years, which usually require extended overnight stays. She’s known them since they were kittens and they absolutely love her. You won’t find a better Pet or House Sitter.
Annie took care of our two dogs while we were away for a week. Our dogs absolutely adored her. Annie played with them, walked them, gently and diligently wiped them down with a damp towel each time they came back in to help with their severe allergies, allowed them to sleep with her (even though they tend to be bed hogs) and made timely visits for potty breaks during the day. The house was immaculate upon our return. We highly recommend Annie as a pet and house sitter.
We had Annie from All About Services watch our kitten over the holidays. We were incredibly pleased with the care and attention our kitten was given. While scheduling services, Annie was very thorough. We knew she had covered everything. We also received frequent communication during our time away. We could not be happier with the care our kitten was given.
As a Pet Sitter, Annie fostered our dog in her home. Our pet was a high-energy rescue dog with numerous issues from being abused and does not trust many people, especially women, and she created an amazing bond.
Annie went with me to the animal hospital to provide support in a time of need when taking my parent’s dog, Maggie, to be put to sleep. Annie stayed with me through the end, providing the strength and compassion needed for this task, for which I’m grateful.
