Marianne just watched our two cats while we were away and she did an amazing job. When we returned the cats were soo happy it was like we were not even gone. It made our vacation that much better because we came home and did not have to deal with stressed animals and everything was neat and clean. It was quite a treat to come home to this. Marianne followed all of our instructions and went above and beyond of what we had asked her to do. Her services are worth every penny and more. Plus there was a nice little present waiting for us when we got home. I cannot wait till our next vacation because I know my cats are good hands and will be well taken care of. We would recommend A Helping Paw in a heartbeat to anyone!

Marianne took excellent care of our 2 dogs and 1 cat. Our animals are all older so we were worried about finding the perfect care for them as they can have special needs, but we found it with Marianne! She did everything she said, and more. Also, she emailed pictures and left DETAILED notes for us so we could see how our babies did. It gave us great peace of mind. Spanky can be a bit difficult if he wasn't left treats and we completely forgot, but she still handled him like a pro. Marianne will treat your babies like her own, there is no better service than that! Spany, Maile, Paka
Marianne followed directions, did not lose focus. Raisin and she became good friends. It was the first time Raisin was in the house with a total stranger. She is very protective of me. I am impressed by the quality of A Helping services. Raisin rarely lies on her back for her tummy to be scratched at first or second meeting. I HIGHLY recommend Marianne, A Helping Paw.
Wow! If you have had a less than perfect experience at a kennel, Marianne is the lady to call. She took such great care of my dogs, home and flowers. She even took pictures of my fur babies while I was gone. She is very professional and a real animal lover. I really loved the fact that she documents all walks, play time and feeding. I highly recommend her services. Your pets will love you for it!

I am so glad I found Marianne online. Due to the high cost of boarding I wasn't sure what I would do with my two cats over the Christmas holiday. Also, I knew they were less stressed being in their home. Marianne took great care of them, and it was a great comfort to know they were being loved. She also emailed me photos of Springs and Fidget, so that gave me even more comfort. When I returned from a long red eye flight, I came home to two happy cats. It was such a sweet thing to do, and really made my homecoming special. I would recommend Marianne to anyone with animals.
Cats: Sprigg and Fidget
Prince and Sierra, (2 German Shepherds) love ya (Marianne) and they are calm and happy. Thanks for walking them when I am at work. It relieves my mind greatly to know that they don't have to spend 9-10 hours in the condo.

I would Like to highly recommend Marianne (A Helping Paw). She has proven herself to be a dependable, trustworthy and loving friend to our pets. She will exceed any expectations you have. We tell you this as people whose pets are part of our family! Mahao, Marianne!

After my previous sitter retired I took my Doberman Haley to a couple of different boarding places. It always seemed to be a traumatic experience for him, and I got to where I hated to send him. The Humane Society website had A Helping Paw listed so I called and Marianne came out to meet us and Harley. They get along great. Now I feel so much better knowing that Harley is being well taken care of in his own home and that the house is being checked on. I highly recommend A Helping Paw. Thanks, Marianne!
Thanks for the great job pet sitting with Spirit, my black lab. Everything went as you said it would and I appreciate the way you document everything. There were no surprises. Spirit was happy and well when I got home. Loved reading the daily journal and his “normal” daily antic still kept up while we were gone.
