Who Is Ms. PAWS ?

Ms. Paws Pet Sitting Services , owned and managed by Holly Van Hest, a proud member of Pet Sitters International. MS. PAWS is different- we are not the typical nor average pet care provider. We are a small, boutique style dog walking and pet sitting service dedicated to the specific and individual needs of each pet under our care. Holly has been providing caring and loving professional pet care since 1992 and has a lifetime of personal experience with animals and critters of her own. These experiences have contributed to a life long devotion to all types creatures large and small. Hence, our motto: " No Creature Too Big or Too Small for Our Loving Care" .

How Can We Help You ?

We provide daily & weekly care in your home ( weekend, and vacation visits also available to our weekly dog walking customers) . This care includes daily dog walking, cat care and other services for all creatures including exotic birds, iguanas, ferrets and even sheep. All services are provided at your home.
Our services include spending a minimum of twenty to thirty minutes with your pet (to be determined at time of Registration) including exercising, playing, feeding, scooping, pampering and administering medications when necessary. We will spend extra time with your pet if required and any modifications to the fee structure will be determined during Registration.

Who Do We Hire ?

We are fully insured (Pet Sitters LLC ) and bonded (Travelerís and Pet Sitters LLC) covered by pet sitting policies created especially for this industry. Each pet sitter hired by Ms. Paws goes through an intensive interview process including a social security, criminal and credit background check as well as employment and personal reference checks. Sitters are well prepared in advance of visits and are sent out with detailed instructions based on the customerís contract agreement. Personal introductions are made to dogs in their own environment to establish a comfort level between the sitter and the dog. If deemed necessary, sitters will also meet with birds and cats and other pets requiring medication prior to the first visit.

Which Neighborhoods Do We Service ?

We are currently most active in Brighton, Brookline, Chestnut Hill, as well as selected areas of Allston, Boston, Jamaica Plain and Newton. We very proudly provide pet sitting services for The Four seasons Hotel, a Five Star hotel located in downtown Boston. In July 2000, we were selected by The Improper Bostonian as Metro-Bostonís Best Pet Walker service.

As a member of Pet Sitterís International, we are active with two professional pet sittersí e-mail list where, on a daily basis, we share ideas and information with other pet professionals which includes a network of over 2000 members in every pet care discipline. We also work closely with other pet services in the surrounding communities if we are unable to accommodate you at this time.
