We have re-opened for dog walking and cat sitting services. In an effort to keep employees, clients, and their pets safe, we have implemented strict covid-19 protocols.

Our staff is equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment, all-natural disinfectant spray, and safety instructions while in your home. The safety of our team, as well as your human and furry family, is our number one priority.

In addition, we offer virtual Meet & Greets and employ a safety manager who monitors team and client safety.

When you request pet care services, you will receive our New Client Info Packet which lists our covid-19 protocol, rates, and service agreement and liability policy.

You have many choices when it comes to picking a professional team that will care for your precious pets. I am grateful we are one of the companies you are considering for such an important responsibility. We have worked very hard to be the best choice for the communities we serve.

It Takes a Village exhibits excellent care and has consistently exceeded my expectations. Their attention to detail and experience has been a perfect match for my high energy Springer Spaniel pup and has helped me be at ease when I can’t be with him.

It Takes a Village has made it possible for us to take day trips without Archie getting lonely. They not only let Archie out for potty breaks but, more importantly to Archie, they provide lots of hugs and snuggles. Archie loves them and so do we!

They are great with our dog and care for him like he’s part of their family. When I work from home, it’s awesome to see how absolutely excited he is. I love getting picture emails of him happy after walks. The communication and service are top notch.
