meals, exercise, playtime, litter box cleaning, administering
medication, walking dogs, poop-scooping, cat taxi, and
lots of petting. Happy Pets© also offers in- home

every visit, we document all services provided, and your
pet's status. An added bonus: you won't have to reciprocate
by watching "our" pets when we leave town!
