Introducing my incredible, professional and pet loving Contractors!

Meet Dave! Dave has been in the business with me for 10 years! Dave does overnights and daily visits. He also cares for diabetic animals.

Dave also has a Sulcata Turtle!

Myself: I am a transporter for "On the road again" (OTRA) and "Take me home transporters" when I am not working with my own clients. I have a 9 year old rescue baby. I also have two rescue groups that I care for their rescue animals while they are away. I can sometimes have 15 dogs to care for at one time! It’s a fun zoo around here with Sue's Pet Friends and never a dull moment! I also have a client who makes beds for the rescue groups around the Valley! We collect linens of all kinds, all year round along with bowls, leashes, food etc.

Sue’s Pet Friends provides personalized care for your dog or cat in his own environment where he feels safe. Dogs are territorial pack animals. He understands his boundaries and position in the pack at home. He may feel insecure, unsafe, and uncertain of his position when he is not at home. Uncertainty results in physical and emotional stress for your dog. Sue’s Pet Friends will ensure your dog's normal routine is maintained. He or she will be able to go potty whenever they need to. He or she will be fed his normal diet plus any special treats as instructed. 

Sue and friends
Your dog or cat will have human contact which is extremely important for these social animals. He or she will continue his normal playtime routines as well as scheduled walks. "Playing ball" is very important for some active dogs. 

One couldn’t expect that type of attention or commitment from a boarding facility; however, your Pet Sitter could easily toss a disc or throw a ball around the yard. Another key benefit to your dog is Sue’s Pet Friends can administer medications for your sick, elderly, or injured dog while you are away. We can also tend to your dog or cat in the event of an emergency and ensure he receives the attention of your veterinarian. 

We may provide services such as turning on lights in the house in the evening, bringing in the mail and newspapers as well as watering houseplants. In other words, they can actually double as house-sitters too! If you add up the potential pitfalls of boarding your dog in a kennel and the benefits of contracting the services of Sue’s Pet Friends, you will quickly realize why the demand for Pet Sitters is growing and why Sue’s Pet Friends may be the best choice for you.

I'm pretty social!

Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
