We are so happy our friend Joanna introduced us to Angela. We just went away for a short weekend trip but we loved knowing that our sweet, soft, hairy, brown baby would be well taken care of and be able to continue with his regular schedule. We really loved the updates after each visit about Mardi and the picture of him was great, too. We know we will be using Happy Paws again and again!
The Klaar Family
Angela took great care of our cats while we were away in January. They love her and I always come home to a neat house with happy cats. No one is better at bonding with our boys!
The Leahy Family
We are so grateful to Happy Paws for coming to our rescue last Christmas Eve when the pet sitter we were going to use called from the hospital to say she had fractured her spine and could not take care of our two goldens during the trip we were departing for that Friday. While this was horrific for her, it was devastinting news for us as we had no back up sitter and our dogs were not vaccinated for kennel cough meaning a kennel stay was not as option. Also we were past the cutoff to cancel our hotel reservastions. Our trip to meet our newborn grandson was in jeopardy.
We jumped online Xmas Eve and found Happy Paws. Crystal contacted us on Christmas to put our minds at ease that they could pet sit and made arrangements for Angela to come on Thursday to meet Elsa and Jack. Happy Paws not only saved our Christmas but also our vacation plans with their quick response. Knowing that Happy Pasws has an entire team of pet sitters to rely on should one sitter become ill or is injured is great peace of mind. We were totally impressed with HP's level of professionalism and thoroughness as well as their use of sofware to enhance ease of communication. This made it quick and simple for us to check in several times daily to make sure all was going well with our "kids" while we were away. We heartily recommend Happy Paws for any pet owner who is looking for top notch care and peace of mind. Our thanks to Angela and the entire crew!

Dear Happy Paws,
We would like to thank Happy Paws and especially Angela for taking care of our little zoo of five pets during our vacation. I had sent inquires to at least half a dozen Pet-Sitting Services and Angela was the only one to call back that very day. She was even ready to set up a meeting for the next day. When she came over she immediately said hello to our two cats and was even okay with being "attacked" by our overly-friendly dog (the dog went to his godparents for our vacation). Angela was very professional and though I had written out instructions she still took notes and made sure that everything was covered. I felt very comfortable leaving our keys with her. Angela even asked us if it would be okay to bring her daughter along to see our zoo (we have a rabbit, a ferret and a turtle in addition to our cats and dog) Of course I didn't mind and I found it very comforting to know that nobody would brought into our house without us knowing first.
Since our cell phones were useless in Spain, we e-mailed Happy Paws as soon as we could. Angela prompty returned a message with an update on our pets and with the news that our silly ferret gave her daughter a love bite! She assured us that both were okay. Angela left us detailed notes and phone messages, even looked under our bed to account for our shy cats! When we returned, our pets were all happy and all of hteir cages were very clean! There wasn't even an animal smell in the house, she had done such a thorough job! There was a message on our machine to call as soon as we got in to let her know that we were home to take care of the animals.
I would highly recommend Happy Paws to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The rates are reasonable, the serivce is excellent, and the peace of mind you feel knowing that your home and your animals are in good hands is priceless. we will definitely use Happy Paws again.

Dear Angela of Happy Paws,
I wanted to thank you and your team for the wonderful care you provided to "Big Momma" (my cat) while I was away. "Big Momma" seemed to bond with you and was very happy when I returned. Your daily notes were greatly appreciated as well. It is very refreshing to know I have a team I can depend on to take care of my "Big Momma" when needed.

The Lefebure Family....
Just wanted to confirm that we're home! The dogs seem terrific and not stressed out in the least. It's very nice to receive the daily notes from you and Jeremy. Please let him know how much we appreciate the time he gave and the care he provided.
I don't know how we lived without you and Happy Paws! A terrific service. Please let me know if I can ever provide and endorsement!
To be honest, I was so worried about leaving the dogs that I couldn't even get excited to go on our trip, but after seeing how well they did under your care I feel so relieved.
Hope you enjoy a great fall day! Tomorrow's weather should be perfect for halloween.
The Muncy Family...
Dear Happy Paws,
I wanted to take a moment to thank Happy Paws, especially Angela, for their excellent Sitting Services for my four cats, Chaka, Daisy, Fat Kitty and Bod Kitty. My husband and I scheduled an extended vacation and while researching boarding services were appalled to find that our cats would be caged for the entire 15 days we would be gone. Knowing this I would not subject my cats to that, we frantically searched for an alternative. I found Happy Paws Frederick on the web and placed a call that was returned promptly, with an appointment scheduled at my home within a couple of days.
Meeting Angela secured my decision to use Happy Paws as my pet sitter. She was very thorough with the initial interview, explaining that she would be by daily to feed, scoop the litter and play with them, requesting all pertinent veterinay information on my cats, as well as how they all behaved and interacted with others, photos of each one and several emergency contacts just in case there was a pproblem. As we were going to be out of the country and not sure if I would have any internet access, I asked my mother to touch base with Angela to make sure everything was going well . My mother was immediately impressed with her assuring me that I had made a great choice.. Returning home, I found four very happy cats and 15 days worth of notes on how everything went AND she had vacuumed up the kitty hair!
Please know that we will use Happy Paws again and will definitely refer anyone looking for a Pet Sitter to call Happy Paws. Please also feel free to use me as a reference as my cats, Daisy esspecially and myself would be happy to refer your services to any who inquire.
The Toms Family.....

The Glynn Family....
I wanted to let you know that I am currently being transferred by my employer to a new project ihn Wisconsin. As a result I will be moving and won't be calling you for Pet Sitting Services for quite a while. Before I go I wanted to let Reena Know that Tonka, Nutsy and myself really appreciated her help over the past months. I also wanted Reena to know that Nutsy kept getting sick and was in and out of the Hospital several times over the last month and we had to put him to sleep a week ago. His buddy Tonka and myself are very heartbroken. Nutsy was 16 years old and spent most of his life in places where he had the freedom to wander around and come and go as he pleased. He had a great life and we miss him.
Thanks again for everything,
The Brletic Family....
I've been meaning to send you an email for the longest time.
I recently moved to Baltimore, MD to be closer to work and wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great care you took of Leo. You were very good to him and I could always feel comfortable knowing that he would be in good hands when I was away.
Shoud you wish to use me as a a reference, I would be more than Happy to recommend you to any potential clients.
I wish you continued success with Happy Paws and the very best to you and you family!
Dear Happy Paws,
We would like to take this opportunity to make reference to "Happy Paws" Pet Sitting Sevice. We decided with our aged kitty we needed to interview and consider this service. Knowing our pet could avoid stress being in her own home was worth the effort. I had left a message and it was returned promptly within hours of the day I called. We scheduled and appointment with the owner and in the mean time I decided to research the business and call the references. I found the references had nothing but the best to say about the service, return calls, availability and peace of mind knowing they could rely on these folks when they had to travel. One reference told me her animals were not the easiest to take care of but she felt confident knowing they were cared for in her absence. Another reference told me she admired that her calls were returned promptly and the interviewer was usually the one who came to care for the animals. I was interested.
After meeting Angela from "Happy Paws",seeing her warmth with our pets and herorganization in her file keeping as to medical information, food and habits...we were impressed. She did not rush the interview, as we were worried with the warning of bad weather approaching that same evening. She took her time, she covered every issue, and made her notes and we could see she was organized and showd maturity and sincerity. Angela's professionalism in giving you good service and peace of mind for your home and pets were the first on her mind.
We would like to say when we returned home, our pet was lovingly cared for and my notes were in tact.Our home neat and my plants were watered. I knew we had left or home and our pets in tusted hans. Knowing the same person was in thouch with us nad checking our home and pets gave us peace of mind. This young lady has in her future a growing business with the top notch service she assuredly will give you.
Since this was our first time leaving our key, our pet with a new service, we kept in touch. Angela assured me I was not the first and she respected my emails and calls. If you're considering calling this service, please know you will sleep well knowing your key to your home and your loved ones are in good hands!
Respectfully, Local Frederick Family

Angela: (Happy Paws)
Just a short note to thank you for your services. My mind is so at ease now knowing that Lucy is well taken care of. I don't need to feel guilty for leaving her all day by herself. Elizabeth has been great. I enjoy reading her notes every night when I get home.
The Svejda Family.....
George and I would like to express our deepest gratitude to you, Samantha and Mike for taking such good care of Shadow. Shadow really liked Mike We know she really appreciated seeing his friendly face in the middle of a long day by herself. George and I felt much better knowing that Mike would keep her company-even if it were just for a few minutes.
Thank you... to you and Samantha for opening up your home and heart to Shadow when she needed a home when we were out of town. It always put us at ease knowing she had a home-away-from-home.
Take Care & Thank You Again,
George & Nikki Svejda
The Schaus Family.....
Angela, Mike and Reena,
Thank you so much for taking care of my four animals during my recent vacation. You all did a fabulous job of keeping everyone happy. For several years I had not used Happy Paws and because of a recent breakup with someone taking care of Mad Dog Murphy while on past vacations and then a trusted neighbor moving way, I immediately called Angela. Yes, you will definately sleep better knowing these expers are taking care of your animals. You are the best.
Love and Hugs from:
"Mad Dog Murphy", "Leaping Lucy Goosy", "Talley Ho Ho" and "Bad Buddy Boy"!
This vender provided a wonderful service for the agency in taking excellent care of "Xena" for two weeks. I would like to use them in the future. Your assistance in rendering payment as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated.
The Mariano Family....
To Happy Paws,
We adopted two Rotties separately last year and were quite nervous about having a stranger take care of them diring the day. I'm happy to say that both Otto and Bella took to Mike right away and it's been smooth sailing ever since.
When I leave for work in the morning all I have to say is "Mike is coming today" and they get super excited! They really look forwared to seeing their friend. Mike has been a real Godsend, not just for giving them a mid-day break but also for having the experience and leadership skills to handle a sometimes moody (and extra large) dog.
We love the daily progress reports and while we haven't needed your services lately we will be calling onyou again soon. So thrilled to read about the house sittting services you provide as well - we haven't been able to take a vacation since we adopted the babies. :-)
Our very best to Mike and the rest of the team for your true love of animals and for going above and beyond to put pet parents like us at ease.
Wet kisses from Otto & Bella and hugs from Billy & Desta

The Schroeder family......
My experience with Happy Paws has always been a good one and this time was no different. Thankis so much to Liz and Mike for taking good care of mey pets. I didn't know anything about Liz prior to this past week and really appreciated her personal notes and felt that she really developed a bond with my dogs and went above and beyond in taking care of everything. Thank you so much!
My name is Bryan Cox, I've used your service a few times. My company is moving me out of state. I'm very grateful for the care and attention you gave to my buddy Midnight while I was away on travel and I can only hope to find someone nearly as good where I'm going- I doubt I could find better!
