At Home Alone Pet Services we customize our services to meet your pet’s unique needs. Our commitment is to meet your animal’s every need and exceed your expectations. While we experience so much fun in working with our clients’ pets, we also treat your animals with love and deep respect as if they are our own. They become part of our family, so you can feel assured and worry-free that they are always being given exceptional care.
We invite you to do two things: Have you and your pet(s) meet us, and talk with our references so that you can ask specific questions about why we are different at Home Alone Pet Services. Our highest priorities are your pet’s safety, happiness, and absolute comfort, along with your peace of mind.
Trust and Responsibility is our mantra. Our clients have shared on numerous occasions that trust in their Caregiver is everything when it comes to their pets. Home Alone Pet Services has earned that right because of the pride we have in establishing deep levels of trust and accountability as that responsibility comes with dedication and an unrivaled sense of love and care for all animals. And we are not “fair-weathered” friends. We are there no matter what the weather or time of day!
Never Want Your Pet Home Alone?
Neither do WE! In fact, that’s why I started my business nearly a decade ago because many of our dear friends and neighbors were struggling with managing long hours at work and caring for their pets at home.
As a licensed Veterinary Technician, I already had a strong passion for caring for animals, and administering medications with confidence and ease. I also loved working with the people who called them their own.
So on one of the balmiest days in August, 2005, I founded Home Alone Pet Services with a very clear vision in mind: “To deliver the finest in-home pet care services within Frederick County, Maryland.”
Because my training and work experience has included caring for a broad array of animals, my “pet clients” include dogs, cats, avians, reptiles and rodents, as well as horses and others farm animals.
We Customize Our Services to Meet Your Pet’s Unique Needs
