Happy Pets

Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot about little puppies.
- Gene Hill -

The mission at Little Characters Pet Sitting and Dog Walking is exceeding our Clients expectations when it comes to reliable and considerate in-home pet care services. We are available 365 days a year. Passion for petcare is the cornerstone of our business. By serving our Clients to our absolute best ability, our goal is for them to spread the good word by reviewing us on Yelp, Angie's List and Google Places.

Daily dog walking and pet sitting are our primary activities. We administer these services for all types of dogs. Size does not matter. We also provide pet sitting for other types of house pets notwithstanding cats, birds, hamsters, rabbits, fish, reptiles, ponds, etc .

Other services include house sitting (with or without pets), home security visitations and periodic winterization check-ups for the Philadelphian snowbirds, who travel south for the winter.

Employer Assistance

Did you know that your employer may be able to help you save money with your pet sitting/dog walking costs? When they do, you both win! They gain a happier and more content employee and you help defray the cost to care for your pet while your at work.

Ask your employer if they offer 'coop' pet sitting plans or can contribute to your petcare payments as a benefit. There are a variety of ways this can be accomplished. This is a direct write off for your employer too. Consult with Michael for ways to approach your employer about this subject.

'Be Kind to Animals'

'Driving? Please Slow Down and Be Prepared to Stop for Wildlife'

"Around the world and in our own back yards, animals of all kinds suffer at the expense of very selfish people. By these groups and individual's careless activities and wanton disregard, animals of every kind are hurt and tortured too frequently. Your help in the effort to alleviate this unseen suffering that legions of animals of this world experience trapped in cages, neglected, frozen, overheated, starved, thirsty, beaten, etcetera... even if you save just ONE animal, your effort will not be for naught. WE MUST BE THEIR VOICE and it is through our collective efforts and love that we can change how animals are treated the world over."
