Are you and your pets prepared to handle an emergency?

With all of the devastation happening from the fires in California to the flooding in Louisiana, it is a sad reminder that an emergency plan is a necessity.

Even for myself, I had a gas leak inside of my home and had to immediately remove my pets from inside of our home while we waited for the utility company to respond.

If you are not ready, here is a checklist to help you get started:

Another easy idea we found on www.backyardchickens.com was to freeze corn in a muffin pan.

These are creative ideas that have probably inspired many people to create their own unique recipes.  Do you have any special treats that your pets love?  We would love to hear them!

Are you an emergency first responder? You need to read this!

Pet Sitting for PetWatch 916Last night I received a phone call from a panicked firefighter who is also pet parent of a dog.  He received an emergency call to come into work immediately, and he needed someone to take care of his dog while he was away for work for the next few days.

Are you an emergency first responder and have found yourself in a similar situation before?

Let PetWatch 916 help remove the stress of finding a boarding facility or a friend to check on your pets!

By using our pet sitting service you will not need to impose upon busy friends, family or neighbors, especially at a moment’s notice.

You will not need to worry about scheduling pick up and drop off times at a boarding facility since we come to you.  There is no travel trauma, and minimal possible exposure to illness from other animals.

Your pets will be able to stay in familiar surroundings, and maintain their regular diet and exercise routines.

We practice high standards for cleanliness, and will leave your home clean and organized so you won’t even know we were there.

You will arrive home with your pets happily greeting you at the door.

PetWatch 916 is happy to send you updates via phone calls, text messages or e-mails.  We can also post photos of your happy pets on our Facebook page or our website Blog.

Need another reason to call?  We provide an extra layer of security by providing the look of your home being occupied and not vacant.  We will pick up newspapers, mail, rotate interior lights, turn your porch light on at night, and roll your trash cans out on trash days.  Having your dogs at home also deters would-be thieves!
