About

JoEllen350Working with pets was always the dream job for lifelong pet owner Jo Ellen Haniford. Her pets were dogs and cats, one of which had several special needs. She knew that this experience was not enough to make that dream a reality. So after working in many different fields, all involving world-class customer service, sales and marketing, Jo Ellen felt it was time to put her plan into action. Her plan included professional pet care training and management for a nationally recognized pet hotel group. She was pet safety trained and certified for pet care after completing a comprehensive program. During this time she managed a staff of 30 pet caretakers, and would at times look after as many as 150 pets at a time. It was a demanding and challenging job, but so very rewarding. Pet people are the best, and they demand the best for their pet families. After several years and thousands of hours of experience, it was time for Jo Ellen to create her niche. Paw Prints Pet Care officially became a reality in 2013. It is our desire to provide personalized pet care services to meet the needs of your beloved pets.

Our pet caregivers are bonded and insured, and will provide your pets with the love and attention they need while you are away. We can create a plan that works for your pet family. During our in person consultation* to meet you and your pet, we will answer any questions you may have, provide our pet care documents that you will fill out, and pick up a key. At this time, we will discuss rates for the services requested, and be sure that we each feel that Paw Prints Pet Care is the right fit for your pet family. Payment for services is due at the time the service begins. We reserve the right to deny service to aggressive or uncontrollable pets, since in these situations, we would not be able to care adequately for them when their family is away.
