Having a pet is wonderful, but for busy people with lots of time commitments, trying to make sure their animal companions have all their needs met can be stressful.
That’s where Sara Krassin comes in.
Her new Monroe-based business, All Your Fuzzy Friends Pet Care, a mobile pet care service, is tailor-made for people who love their pets but sometimes need a little help with their care.
Can’t get home to let your dog out for a potty break? Sara can schedule regular visits to keep your pet comfortable while you are at work.
Does your cat need to get to the vet and you just don’t know where you’ll find the time?
Sara will take care of it. She can pick up a key from you, run your pet to the vet and back home, and can even arrange to stop by your place to give your pet medicine on schedule.
Is your dog getting shaggy with cooler weather coming on, but you haven’t even found time to get in for a cut yourself? Sara can get your fuzzy friend to the groomer of your choice.
And if your dog needs its ears cleaned and nails clipped, Sara can drop over and take care of that weekly task, too.
And she can even look after horses and cows.
“I once took care of a whole farm,” said Sara, who has been caring for other people’s pets for about five years.
Sara offers very affordable rates.
A 15-minute visit to a large animal is $20, with longer visits costing less per minute; half an hour costs $25.
Smaller animals start at $15 for 15 minutes, and half an hour is $20.
Taking the dog for a walk starts at $15 for $15 minutes, but a full hour is only $25.
A simple potty break is $10, and pet taxi services are $20 per hour for local trips, and longer distance trips can be negotiated.
Add a nail trim for only $8 and an ear cleaning, which keeps ears free of infection, for $5.
All Your Fuzzy Friends can also make it possible for pet owners to take vacations and leave their pets at home, knowing they are in good hands.
And Sara charges for her time when pet sitting, so multiple animals don’t cost extra.
“If you have six cats, it’s the same as one cat,” said Sara, who grew up around pets, as her mother, Janis Krassin, has owned Happy Dog Groom Shop for about 25 years.
Sara will travel as far as Gold Bar, Duvall, Woodinville or Snohomish, and can usually get to your pet within a couple of hours if something comes up and you need someone to look after your animal.
Having regular visits during the day can make a huge difference in the life of a pet who belongs to a busy person.
“Animals not visited get anxiety,” said Krassin. “I can be there to make sure they are okay, that they have food and water and they get potty breaks and have comfort.”
Sara also will donate part of her profits to pet rescue operations, because all animals deserve to be as happy as yours.
