“Laura is outstanding with all my pets I have 6 cats and a dog. They all love her and look forward to her kindness and care.   What I like best about her is her flexibility of scheduling since I have a hectic and unpredictable job it’s comforting to know that my pets are taken care of with kindness when I can’t be there and that Laura loves her job as much as I love my pets.  Thank you.  ”  ~Dr. Bonnie Gleason, MD – Division of Critical Care Department of Anesthesiology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute

Our goal at Laura’s Critter Care, LLC is to be your one stop source for all things pet related.  Even if you do not have pets, we can look after your home while you are away.  We know that no two clients needs are exactly the same.  Unlike many kennels, pet and house sitting companies, we don’t charge extra for medications, mileage, late night and early morning visits or multiple pets unless you have more than five.  Because of this, our services are often more cost effective for owners of multiple pets.  We will work with you to design a service package that suits the needs of you, your home and your pets.  The happiness and peace of mind of our clients is our #1 priority.
