The staff I have had the pleasure to work with have been wonderful with my various dogs, always meeting my needs and taking extra care in difficult situations. Highly recommended for pet sitting and day walks. Love them.”

Your pet is in GREAT paws with Mary!
“My 18 year old cat and I moved across the country and a month later I had to go back for a week for work. I found Mary and Paw Approved and thank goodness every day. She is so thorough (a whole notebook report greeted me back home, she sent updates every day) and within 3 days my shy cat was letting Mary pet her. Your pet is in GREAT paws with Mary and I’m so grateful for her and P/A!”

Mary is Awesome!
“We use Paw Approved too – Mary is awesome – she stops by 1-2 times a day to care for/play with our kitties. She texts us pretty often with pictures and videos of our cats which gives us peace of mind”

You ladies are the BEST!
“We will never be able to express our gratitude to you and your wonderful staff for the care and attention given to our Molly. To know that Molly is safe, well taken care of and loved while we were away means the absolute world to us. You and your staff always have a place in our heart and home. You ladies are the BEST!”

Mary and the Paw Approved Ladies are the BEST!!
“They take such great care of Bentley (and me)! They have been with Bentley through two knee surgeries and assisted me when I didn’t know what to do!! Mary is always quick to respond to my requests for last minute visits. I can’t say enough good things about the Paw Approved Ladies!!! They will become a part of you and your pets life!”

Mary and the staff at Paw Approved are the best of all possible worlds.
“They are true pet lovers, caring people, dependable & trustworthy professionals. I have used Paw Approved for short weekends and multiple week vacations several times a year. Due to Girlie’s recent serious illness I was very worried about leaving town. I called Mary to discuss my concerns, and seek her advice. Mary developed a schedule accommodating my specific cat sit time requests. Mary and her staff called / texted me to share concerns, updates and reassure me during my time away from home. In addition to providing loving care to Girlie, and support to me, the staff check my home, water plants (inside and out), and bring in the mail. You will not find a better group of people to care for and love your pet – they are truly unsurpassed – I can’t say enough great things – they are wonderful.”

“My husband and I were scheduled to leave the country the day the snow was supposed to begin. We were so worried Mary wouldn’t be able to get back and forth to our pets for our scheduled overnight visits that we almost cancelled our trip. Mary assured us everything would be fine and it absolutely was. She ended up getting snowed in with our pets for 4 days! She even had to shovel mountains of snow just for our pup to go potty, she never complained once. She kept us updated with daily pics of our content pets. Our pets didn’t seem to miss us at all when we got home. I can’t say enough positive things about Mary herself and Paw Approved. I highly recommend their services. ”

Paw Approved Pet Services, LLC is AWESOME!
We left our dogs and cat in their care (at home) for a week and we returned home to a happy cat, happy dogs and a clean house. Anyone who needs pet sitting in the area, go here first!

Mary impressed me at our initial interview.
Her interview was thorough, including issues I do not think of, such as where the water shut off valve was located in case of a flood. She demonstrated an extensive knowledge of animals, and my boxer, Jake, loved her. I no longer worry about my dog with Mary and her pet providers looking after Jake and I also felt that my home was safer because they were there every day while I worked.
I was so impressed by the level service and care that my dog received.

Our family loves Paw Approved!
“Our family loves Paw Approved. We have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 3 large birds who adore Mary and her staff. When we are away from home, we know our pet family is safe, sound and happy. Mary and her ladies take care of them as we would and spoil them rotten. Mary entertains our birds by singing to them. One likes opera, another likes show tunes and the 3rd likes it all. When we return there are always detailed notes as to their day to day activities. We really have such a peace of mind when leaving. Not only is Mary and her staff “Paw Approved” but they are also “Family Approved”.

You’ll finally be able to enjoy yourself when you’re out of town.
“Paw Approved is the best pet-care service I can imagine. Mary Ferguson was so kind and professional during her first visit to our home that I knew our cats were in good hands. Paw Approved took excellent care of our special-needs 18-year-old cat and our playful young cat. During each visit, the Paw Approved sitter wrote about our cats and it made me happy to read the entries when I came home.
Despite the fact that we had been away for a whole week, the cats were both very calm. The sitters had played with the younger cat a lot, which made her much less anxious. Paw Approved left the house in wonderful order, too. It really made our vacation a true vacation knowing that our cats were having such a good time. We give Paw Approved the highest recommendation!”

Young pets are no problem when you work with us
“Mary Ferguson and her pet providers have been pet sitting for us for over three months. We recently welcomed a new puppy into our family and since that time we have been using Paw Approved to stop in during the week day to take our dog for a walk and play with her.
During this time, we have been extremely pleased with the service from Paw Approved. I have found Mary Ferguson to be exceptionally well informed when it comes to pet care and it is obvious she genuinely loves animals. We were one of Paw Approved’s first clients and I was very impressed with how thorough Mary was in getting her business formally running (from the brochures, web site, payment options, etc.).
Additionally, Mary and her staff has been able to help us out in a pinch when we required a last minute, unexpected visit. We are very pleased with her service and Mary and her pet providers are wonderful too! I have only good things to say about Paw Approved and would not hesitate to recommend Mary Ferguson’s service.”

Any special treatment your pet needs will be handled appropriately
“Sir Garth is my diabetic Maine Coon who has been my buddy for 12 of his 14 years. He is a relatively large feline by nature with a rather regal attitude whom I affectionately call Mr. G or G-man. Recently my regular pet sitter became pregnant and had to abandon the service that she been providing for Mr. G for about 10 years.
I consider myself very fortunate to have found Paw Approved Pet Services and its owner, Mary Ferguson. I spent weeks searching for someone with the training to administer twice-daily insulin and who was reliable and if I really was lucky; someone who would truly care about the G-man. I was blessed to discover, on the Pet Sitters International website, that the only pet service in my zip code that met all those criteria was Mary and her colleagues at Paw Approved. And the fees are identical to the ones I was paying before. Sir Garth and I were not disappointed; in fact we were blown away with Mary’s knowledge of animals, her attentiveness, and her attention to detail and her skills as a medical professional. Garth was as ecstatic as his regal attitude would allow – Mr. G offered his paw as his approval of his new friend.”

She has been so attentive and caring…
“Mary has lovingly watched my large Douge de Bordeaux Nala since she was 10 weeks old. She has been so attentive and caring and truly treated Nala as her very own pet. I can’t say enough about how impressed I have always been with her professionalism, quick response to my questions and her last minute availability. We recently had to put Nala down due to congestive heart failure but I promise when we are ready to get another dog there is no question as to who I will trust with her wellbeing.”

They are true professionals and I highly recommend Paw Approved Pet Services
“We recently hired Paw Approved Pet Services for our 8 day trip to Hawaii and I could not have been more pleased. Mary and Linda treated our 3 dogs and 1 cat like their own – giving them not only excellent care but lots of TLC. They texted me regularly with updates and photos so I did not worry about how they were doing. They also kept a detailed log of each visit. They are true professionals and I highly recommend Paw Approved Pet Services.
Thank you Mary and Linda for taking such great care of my furry babies!”

Thank you so much. You ladies are amazing.
“I would like to thank Paw Approved ( especially Chelsey and Mary) for the premier loving care they have provided to our kids in the last few months. It’s always spectacular, but thank you for not just being available, but for truly showing so much love and happiness when you see our pets. I know that Joe and I do not get to see you and Chelsey in action, but judging by the awesome notes and how happy Buddy, Gus and Lucy are, we just know how well cared for they are while we are away. Thank you so much. You ladies are amazing.”
