Why Do Employees Matter?

Before hiring a staff member, applicants go through nationwide, state, and county background checks, multiple interviews, and a pre-employment assessment survey.

Our Employees:

  • Receive extensive education and training including certification in pet first aid before they enter your home.
  • Must adhere to our high level of care standards to keep your pets safe and secure.
  • Are important to the success of our company, and we value their loyalty.

When a company uses independent contractors, there is a minimal screening process, and the company is unable to supervise the contractor.  That independent contractor can then contract out to another contractor without notifying the company.  You would not know if the contractor had been trained or even if they have insurance and neither would the company you hired.

Utilizing employees allows us to maintain a consistent high quality of care for your pets.  All of our staff members are covered by workman’s compensation to make sure they are protected as well as you and your home.

Trust your pet to a hero you can count on.
