Testimonials

"Thank you SO much for looking after Jackie. Our Safe Hands Sitter must have worked magic on her because when we came upstairs, we were expecting her to be in her usual "safe" zone -- the closet. But I walked in the bedroom and she was on the chair, relaxed, completely unfazed by our arrival. She purred almost instantly when I petted her and it's wonderful to see Jackie that comfortable. We agreed that you must have a great connection with Jackie and probably with all furry people. :) As we said when you were here, it's enough that she is fed and in great hands while we're away. It's an absolute bonus that she's so blase when we get home. It just says to us how good she feels, and nothing could make us happier when we're away from her. Thank you. You guys are simply the best! We don't know what we'd do without Safe Hands." Ingrid T.


"Safe Hands, your service is superb! In the past when I went away Sabrina stayed at home with my husband and threw up almost every day and in general seemed unhappy. When I would return she would "meow" frantically. This time she calmly met me at the door as if I had returned home from a short trip to the supermarket...and she looks great! Thank you for changing her box, caring for my plants, and disposing of an overripe tomato and milk as it became outdated. Who could ask for more?" Jeanette S.


"Loved it, Loved it, Loved it! Thanks for the excellent service." Matt M.


"It's always such a pleasure to come home and see Breezy so happy, as well as receiving our Safe Hands Sitter's lovely notes. I have fallen in love with the name BB. Right now she's happy...she's fed...and I can see as I look out the window, that she is scavenging the compost pile. What a funny girl she is! Thanks for your help as always and I appreciate you greatly....and so does BB." Carolyn P.


"Safe Hands, I want to thank you personally for your excellent and quality service. Our cats definitely were more relaxed and seemed as if we had not even been away. Usually one of them urinates on our bed to show her displeasure and this time that did not happen at all. I think you run the most caring and professional service I have ever encountered and I will be referring you to friends, co-workers and family. We travel several times a year and I can't tell you how much more enjoyable our trip was knowing our kitties were being cared for by someone who understands that they are more than "just animals" to us. They are our family. With thanks." Tara W.


"One of the most reassuring practices Safe Hands employs is the quality of reporting - the detail in the report shows time spent getting to know each of my cats; noting each one's little quirk, how much they ate, litter box attention etc. I have not always been certain other sitters really spent time - Safe Hands clearly does! THANK YOU!" Helen M.


"We got back late last night to the delight of our kitties who saw us as walking can openers available for an extra meal....they look great and are happy cats who look like they didn't miss us a bit. Thank you for the letter detailing happenings around the house and thank you for taking such great care of everything. We'll be calling on Safe Hands again for your wonderful service and recommending you to friends and clients whenever we can." Carol S.


"Our neighbors tell us that they can almost tell the time by Safe Hands Dog Walker's visits. Cleo adores her dog walker, and goes tail wagging to greet her (if she's not in mid-nap when the walker arrives). We have only great things to say about Safe Hands', and all of the staff that we have had contact with or who has helped out with walks when our regular walker is on vacation. I recommend your service to friends and colleagues whenever the opportunity arises." Denise T.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter is absolutely great! I am so impressed with the office's ability to always get back to me promptly. We are very grateful to have found Safe Hands." Elizabeth R.


"We are very impressed and happy with the quality of service that Safe Hands provides. This was the first time we had left for a weekend getaway and were concerned about leaving Ares all by herself. However, when we returned, we found a very happy and playful cat. We know that this attitude is due to the loving and attentive care that Safe Hands gave to our baby while we were gone. Knowing Ares was being well cared for and played with allowed me to enjoy my weekend too! We will never leave home without our Safe Hands Sitter! Thanks!" Corina R.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter was great with my cats. She was professional and was wonderful in providing updates, creating a report & attending to her tasks. I am very pleased to recommend Safe Hands to others and to use the service again!" Patrick P.


"Callie was soooo happy to see us! She ran right out of the bedroom and started purring. She seemed great. Not as scared or confused as in the past when we left her with someone else. Thank you so much for our Safe Hands Sitter's care and support. I am really attached to my little Callie and am so happy to have found Safe Hands who takes such good care of her!" Erika S.


"Very professional service. I didn't believe it was possible that my cats could be any more spoiled but your service proved me wrong! Very happy with the result." Tchell D.


"Thanks for taking such great care of Bear while we were away. We loved reading the letter from our Safe Hands Sitter and hearing about your adventures with Bear in the neighborhood. Bear was in great spirits when we returned. We look forward to working with Safe Hands again in the future". Ron S.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter did a nice job on Scooter & Sammie. Their coat seemed very soft and full. They did not feel abandoned during my vacation. The report and general confidence in honesty of staff was excellent. So far I would rate Safe Hands #1!" Sherie R.


"The other pet sitters we have used were very good, but they simply do not compare to Safe Hands and their Sitter. We especially appreciate how tidy our apartment was when we returned! Penelope and Tinkerbell were so relaxed when we got back. We could tell they'd had excellent care and attention. The Sitter's updates were detailed and funny. We could tell she was giving the girls really individualized and loving attention and this gave us total peace of mind. Thank you!" Amanda W.


"I felt I was in very professional hands with your service. You thought of everything including back up plans and Stormy really seemed to like our Safe Hands Sitter." Emily S.


"I got back just fine tonight and the cats look like they are in great shape - happy and not nervous at all. Betsy came out right away, which she has never done before when I've been traveling. I'm very glad to hear she felt comfortable enough with our Safe Hands Sitter to come out while you were here. Thanks so much for looking after them so well! " Erica P.


"Thank you - we are so glad to have found you and will recommend you to others about your pet care services. When we met with our Safe Hands Sitter, we felt very comfortable and trusted her with our house and our precious pets!" Carol S.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter did a great job! Gracie and Angel even seemed disappointed when I walked through the door that I wasn't their sitter! Her emails really took a weight off my mind since I was so far away. From her descriptions of my cats' behavior I could tell she was really spending quality time with them and really getting to know them. She's a hard act to follow now that I am back home!" Laurelin R.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter was fantastic with our dog, Friday. I liked working with the whole Safe Hands team. Friday, our dog, was the happiest I have ever seen her upon our return!" Jena R.


"We returned 30 minutes ago and found Neko greeting us at the door and happy to see us. Her purring assured us that she was well cared for and everything was normal as if we had never left. Thank you for taking such good care of her. We are most pleased with the care you provided. Neko is already sitting on my desk as I write this email to you. She thanks you too!" Jun M.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter did an amazing job taking care of Luna and Stella. They were pretty "eh" about seeing me when I got back - which is great! I could tell they weren't attention starved and our sitter did a great job caring for them. I will definitely use Safe Hands services again in the future." Rachel T.


"You guys are awesome all the way! It is a great relief to have found a professional establishment I can trust to call when I will go out of town. It is great for Nala and it gives me a lot more freedom." Heather J.


"We just got back, and Corky seem very happy and well cared for....thank you so much for the note and everything. We were so pleased with everything, and plan on contacting you again very, very soon to schedule another day so we can ski again. We've been slow in finding someone to help us "get away", and I'm so glad we finally did something and found you. Safe Hands did a superb job and we are all very happy." Owen F.


"Safe Hands, Thank you very much for all that you've done for Max and Gracie while I was on vacation. This was the first time I've left them and I'm delighted that they were happy, healthy and well taken care of when I returned. I couldn't be happier with the care you've given them and really appreciate the email updates along the way. It is an absolute pleasure to work with your staff because they are so qualified, professional and dedicated. I think that Gracie and Max will consider having you care for them at Christmas time as that would be the best present they could receive!" Melissa S.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter's attitude and written reports showed that she cared for animals in general and that she took my kitties temperament and needs into consideration. She tailored her interaction with my kitties accordingly and they really enjoyed their playtime and brushing sessions!" Marlys W.


"Thank you for your very sweet and informative emails, but especially thank you for taking such good care of our boys! They are indeed WONDERFULLY HAPPY, and I can't tell what a complete relief it was to vacation and not be worried about them and feel like a Bad Mom. Thank you so much. And thank you for taking care of the fish as well, and the mail and garbage - SafeHands provides such a wonderful, comforting service." Janet O.


"The critters are always so settled when I come home, glad to see me, but not anxious. It makes me feel so much comfortable when traveling to know they are being so well cared for and with such love." Pat H.


"Our Safe Hands Sitter was awesome from start to finish. She has a wonderful love for cats." Megumi T.


"I'm home -- got in last night as expected. I stretched out on the couch with my laptop to send Safe Hands an email last night, and Stevie promptly settled in on my chest so that I couldn't write. He fell asleep, as you reported he'd done to you :) This morning, I resumed my position to send you this email, and Smudge came in and jumped on my chest. He started purring as if he were going to bed down and cudle and thwart my email efforts, but as usual, he got antsy (pun intended) and took off to scratch at the kitchen cupboard. So here I am, safe and sound, and deeply in love with my boys. Thank you, Safe Hands, for doing such a wonderful job. You folks are a real blessing; I continue to be supremely impressed by your thoroughness and considerateness. And I love your letters and reports." Mary H.


"Thanks for the update. I didn't realized how much I used to worry about them when I traveled until now when I'm having the pleasure of reading your emails. I feel like I'm there! And I can tell by the way they are playing with you and following you around that this has been good for them as well. I have a lot to live up to when I get back! " Laurelin R.


"I could tell that China seemed much more secure and less needy when we returned from a trip. We also appreciate the long detailed notes the Sitter left for us on our return. We will use your service again and again. Thanks!" Rebekah H.


"Freddy used to "act out" before by pooping on my bed or some other unwanted location when I had someone else cared for him. He did not do that this time so he must have had a splendid time with our Safe Hands Sitter! " Robin D.


"Safe Hands Pet Care is fantastic! They come and walk my pug Pious every day. They always leave a note about their visit. Most importantly, they love my dog. He is always happy and relaxed when I come home." Andrea F.


"I really liked having email contact with our Safe Hands Sitter to discuss the loose ends. Also, the initial meeting was very important to me. I knew when I saw my sitter with Girlcat, and heard about his genuine love for animals, that she was in very good hands. Of course I thought about her while I was away, but I didn't worry about her. Thank You, Safe Hands, for helping make it a great holiday weekend. And thanks for keeping Girlcat company. She was much less stressed out than she normally is when we go away. Much Appreciation!" Amy L. & Girlcat

"I am home after a wonderful trip. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be able to go away and know that the kids are well cared for." Malcolm H.


"Thank-you so much for your help! Marvin and Ziggy definitely seemed happier than usual when I returned -- and Marvin did not pee on the bed which he ALWAYS does when I leave them with other people (or within 15 minutes of my walking in the door! ;^) I really appreciate your help, you went "above & beyond the call of duty' and, most importantly, the boys were well taken care of." Michael P.

"Nala was very contented when I got home. Still with a ball in her mouth wanting to play.

I will definitely use your services in the future." Heather J.

"Our Safe Hands Walker has taken a great approach with Cali - giving her a great work-out in the short time she has her. Neighbors are also mentioning how responsible she is in approaching other dogs, etc. I love her! And so does Cali! I can tell by the fact that they run up the street with the leash in Cali's mouth - and also by the way Cali smiles for me at night." Anne M.
