New Pet Care and Personal Assistance Services Announced in the College Area

San Diego (September 7, 2016) – Just in time for back to school season, Petfriender, a professional dog walking, pet sitting, and personal assistance service announces their official launch to San Diego’s College Area neighborhoods of El Cerrito, Talmadge and Rolando.  The Petfriender team launched a soft opening in April and now provides expert pet care as licensed, bonded, and fully insured professionals to over 50 local dogs and cats.

“In-home animal care is beneficial for both pets and their owners,” says Petfriender founder, Ms. Jolie Gischer.  “Animals thrive with routine, and when their family is away from home, pets cope so much better within their own environment, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds, smells, and daily activity.  They enjoy having a friendly and familiar face pop in during the day to dote on them with the love and affection they’re missing, now that summer is over and their kids and families are back to school.”  As a resident of the tight-knit College Area which has recently experienced some increased criminal activity, Ms. Gischer also understands the importance of community eyes and ears.  “…it’s ever important that our homes have an “active” look while we’re away on vacation or at work, and also, that we all remain vigilant while we’re out on walks to keep an eye out for our community so our neighbors remain safe.”

Petfriender provides a variety of services for dogs, cats and other small animals including private dog walks, loving pet care visits, in-home overnight pet sitting and day care, as well as pet taxi service.  Ms. Gischer adds, “Not only do we care for an owner’s pet as if they are one of our own, but Petfriender is unique in that we extend personal assistance services beyond just pets.  Clients trust us with their furry family members and their homes, so it’s only logical that we also help them handle the tasks that drain time and energy away from their lives.”

Some of the home management services offered by Petfriender include personal shopping and errand runs, home organization, on-site availability for home deliveries and repairs, and even administrative help for the busy professional, such as booking business travel and expense reporting.  “We want to free our clients of the constantly lingering items pestering their lives.  When Petfriender clients can come home EASY without a long to-do list waiting, and they actually have more free time and the ability to focus more on the things that enrich their lives, that’s when we’re satisfied in knowing that we’ve accomplished our goal – Happy Pets, Happy Humans, Happy Homes,” says Ms. Gischer.
