The Close To Home Difference

Our Purpose: Close to Home Pet Services brings customers and our team together to provide pets with unique individual care from a team of honest, kind, reliable, good people. Although we are a pet care company we believe our purpose is to empower all including our team, clients and pets.

Core Values: We are an LGBTQAI owned and operated company. We base our decisions on ‘if it’s right’ not if it’s easy. We may make mistakes but we will always be honest. We respect all folks and require respect in return. When hiring we vetted our team members, run recurring background checks and seek out character and train skills. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Vision: To provide professional and compassionate care for pets and their owners. To allow pet owners to feel confident and at ease when they leave their homes and pet family members in our care. This allows the client to be present in their day, whether it is at the office or on vacation. We help pets feel like they are on vacation and allow the humans to be as well.

Mission: To connect good people with good people while caring for the animals and supporting everyone in a healthy manner.

Goals: To encourage life/work balance for our entire team while empowering them to be the best version of themselves every day. While at work remain present with the animals providing specialized care and support to the animals and their families.

Customers and Community: We work with good, kind, honest, and all-around awesome people. If this sounds like you, please consider being a Close to Home client. You will fit right in.
