When Katherine MacRae’s cat passed away in July, she was deeply missing having a pet in her life but wasn’t ready to take on a new one for adoption. To fulfill her longing to be with furry friends, she decided to start Loving Pet Care in December. Since then, she has been able to get her animal fix by providing pet sitting and dog walking services for other animal lovers in town.
“There are lots of people who want their animals looked after properly,” said MacRae. “All animals just need love and attention.”
With multiple local clients, MacRae walks dogs weekly and is thoroughly enjoying the fitness and health benefits that her business offers for the pets and herself. She prides herself in helping people with busy work schedules know that their pets are getting the attention they need, and loves the excitement that the pets exhibit when she picks them up.
Pet owners who need peace of mind when they travel can also consult with MacRae as she offers home visit services for not only dogs but cats, rabbits, fish and more. She is confident working with shy cats and energetic dogs and develops a close bond with all animals she supervises. She will also send photos of the daily activities to the pet owners to reassure them that their fur babies are in good hands.
MacRae’s schedule is flexible and she is available for new clients. She is able to work on holidays, weekends and on short notice for last-minute travellers.
“The best part is that they are always happy to see you,” said MacRae. “I have fallen in love with every single one of them.”
