Steph's critter club is the purrfect place for your animals to play, stay or pass the time away!!
Hi, my name is Steph. I love animals and have been around them since the age of 5. A girl never likes to tell her age but let's just say I have at least 30 years experience with animals ;). This experience includes loving, caring for, disciplining and most importantly playing with animals. I have cared for dogs, fish, snakes, rats, turtles, guinea pigs, bearded dragons, ferrets and a bird.
In addition to caring for other people's animals, I have a critter family of my own. This includes 2 small dogs, 5 cats (one is a foster), 2 turtles, 5 rats, 2 foster bunnies and fish. Our two small girls (5lbs and 12lbs) get along well with everyone. Our cats get along well with other animals, including dogs, however if pets are at my house we want the least amount of stress possible so the cats will be free to do their own thing in their own section of the house.
Your pet’s safety is my first priority. I have recently completed a pet first aid course. I am currently looking into pet insurance services, in case of emergency.
If your pet is staying with me, I can offer transportation for emergencies. At times, this transportation would be via cab services if the family vehicle is not available. We have numerous vets within our community. Also, there is the Niagara Vet Emergency Clinic just 9.8kms away. They offer services 24 hours a day and on holidays.
I am able to offer services that are catered to your pet’s unique needs. In order to assist with this, I encourage a home visit prior to boarding and a meet and greet prior to walking or stop in services. If your pet is full of energy, I offer long walks, running or playing in a fenced backyard. If they are more of a couch potato we can go for a nice relaxing walk, snuggle on the couch, just relax or explore the critter room. This is an area just for pets that the turtles, rats and foster critters call home. It has been a greatly enjoyed by all the pets that have stayed here. As for sleeping arrangements, I can do what works best for your pet. This includes sleeping in our bed, their own kennel or bed or literally anywhere they want. If cats are boarding they will have full use of the kitty room. Our cats will move out into our bedroom.
I am comfortable providing care to all animals. I do request that larger dogs (above 30lbs) have some form of obedience training to make providing care easier for all involved. I am comfortable providing pets with any form of oral medications. I have not been trained for injections.
I have had many pawsome experiences with all kinds of animals. I find animals to be the best company and they make me happy in ways humans cannot. I find them to be inspirational in the way that they are non-judgmental and just so accepting. I would love to meet you and your furry friends very soon. I look forward to hearing from you and welcome all questions or concerns.
Have a pawsitivly great day!
