 Gallery and Testimonials

My name is Chloe, I am white fluffy and a darn cute Bichon Frise - My mom is a downtown banker and while she loves me tremendously she has to work a lot of hours, she found Joan to give her a hand. Joan makes my tail wag, she scratches me just the way I like it, feed me treats and takes me for lots of walks, she talks to me, she knows when I need that extra bit of attention, or when I am feeling sad and missing my mom.

Joan gives me all my favorite things in a dog stocking at Christmas. I look forward to that each and every year. I don't really know anyone except my mom who loves me more than Joan, it's pretty cool to have a home at Pet Connections

I am thankful that I met Joan more than 3 years ago. At that time my beloved cat, Boodhy, was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant giving my cat 2 shots a day of insulin with a needle. This is not an easy task. My 17-year-old cat is not declawed and generally very antisocial. Since I have to go out of town a few times a year, I needed to find a loving, forgiving, responsible person willing to handle my antisocial cat and give her shots twice a day. I found that person in Joan. I am so grateful for that.

Pet Connections
is a pet service that does more than just walk your dog or feed them. Joan is someone who truly loves animals and treats all her clients as if they were her very own. She is caring, thoughtful, reliable, and also willing to take on a challenge. My Siberian Husky who came to us in need of strong guidance and care was the recipient of Joan's vast resources, her experience, and mostly her caring heart. Our dog just loves her.
