Recently we were taking a trip and I looked into several Pet Care companies. Having read MANY of the excellent comments on A Buddy for Hire's website I contacted the owner, Gail Worthman, and arranged to meet with her. I instantly could tell that she would take perfect care of our 2 adored cats Cricket and Murphy and agreed to use her services on the spot.

Not only did Gail take care of our cats perfectly but she also took care of a problem that occured with our automatic cat liter box. She was amazing and contacted us about the problem with the liter box, which she remedied by purchasing a temporary liter pan and liter.

We have since used A Buddy for Hire's services again and had the same top notch experience as the first time. I would, without a hint of hesitation recommend A Buddy for Hire, even being a worry wort when it comes to our cats, I know that they are in good caring hands.

I was gone for four nights. The person dogsitting didn't know who I was the first time I called, so I was nervous the whole trip. The second (and only other) time I called the person didn't answer and didn't call back. I finally reached him three hours later. When I returned home, my dogs were fine, but there was more dirt in their water bowl than water, and they had been overfed. The worst part was the treatment I received when I told the owner about my displeasure. There wasn't any apology, only defensiveness. Then, I was treated as though it was my responsibility to get the second half of payment to her. I was told I would get my keys when, and only when, my check cleared if I mailed a check. Then, I was told I had to come to her home to get my keys and pay her. When I said I wanted her to come to me, since I was paying HER and I shouldn't have to do the work, she said, "that wasn't the arrangement". In the end, she had me use the second half of payment to change the locks.

Poor business practices abound here. I'm sure my dogs were reasonably well taken care of, but I wasn't and still am not happy about the services I received (even for half price) and would NEVER use or suggest this company to anyone.

We recently visited NYC and wanted to take in a ball game. As we were travelling with our pet Pomeranian and did not feel that it would be right to abandon her in a strange hotel room we contacted A Buddy for Hire and they were able to provide a very dog friendly gentleman who became an instant hit with our furry travelling companion. The service is second to none and we highly recommend their use.

Message from A Buddy For Hire

We strive to provide the most responsible, loving care possible and to precisely observe even the most complicated wishes of the owner. We collect mail and water plants and check on general home conditions. We call owners to reassure them that their pets are doing well.

It is most important to us that clients feel their pets are receiving the best treatment, and will thrive in their absence.
