Day Care and Overnight Stays at Camp Mare Cares
Overnight Stays at Your Home
Whether you are working, fishing, playing, or just gone from home longer than your pet should be alone, let me tend to their needs. Visits are approximately 30 minutes depending on your pet's needs, and include: walks, potty breaks/scooping, exercise, play and all the TLC you would give them yourself, fresh food & water, litter box, cage & accident cleaning, fetching mail, packages & newspaper, taking out/bringing in trash & recycle bins, adjust lights as needed, and inside plant watering. Notes, emails and/or texts are also provided daily. 










 Mare Cares Pet Services takes great care to provide pets and owners with 
high quality services personalized for their unique needs.

House Watching & Errands
Don't have a pet but are still uncomfortable about leaving your home empty while you are away? You could give your key to the kid next door and he'll take in your mail and paper. But will he also double-check doors and windows, notice if something's not quite right? Take out your trash and recycle bins and remember to bring them back in? Water plants and turn lights on and off? Wouldn't you rather have an insured professional looking after your home? We know what it takes to oversee a house. We take care of yours as if it were our own. Hire the services of a professional - someone who will keep an eye out and bring much needed peace of mind while you're away.
