Overview

Can't take your small animal(s) with you on that trip, vacation, or to work where you spend long hours? Plan on leaving your pet(s) alone for 2 or more hours longer than you normally would? Are you sure something unusual or unexpected won't happen when you're away? Please let us help you!

Even though they are small, appear to be normally self sufficient, and live in a secure crate, cage, or tank, birds, small pawed animals, reptiles, and fish still require a great deal of daily care and attention - as much as a cat or dog. They are complex creatures that need to be checked on, provided loving and caring attention, given sufficient food and  water, and allowed to feel as though they were not abandoned. When taken good care of, their truly unique nature shines.

Why choose claws, paws & fins

HOUSING
We will ensures that the crate, cage, or tank in which small your animal(s) live(s) is intact, safe and that all its components are functioning as intended.

FEEDING & WATER
We will ensure that the water bottle and feeder are not empty, clogged or malfunctioning so that food and water are always available.

ROUTINE & HEALTH
Keeping a pet at homes helps reduce a change in environment, which alleviates exposure to excessive or prolonged stress that can lead to lowered resistance to illness.

SOCIALIZATION  & BEHAVIOUR
Keeping a pet at home reassures it that it has not been abandoned, which stops it from developing behaviour problems that could become destructive and anti-social.

HYGIENE & PHYSICAL HEALTH
On a daily basis or during each visit, we can clean crates, cages, and elimination accidents. We can brush and groom. We can also clean your fish tank when you specify.

MEDICAL CARE
We can administer medical treatment and know what to do during a medical emergency. We have strong bonds with local Veterinarians if an illness or injury is sustained that could put any small animal's health or life at risk.

  2. We'll respond by emailing a detailed Quote to a new client, or a Reservation confirmation to a returning client

  3. If you're a new client, you need to inform us that you accept our Quote. A returning client does not need to accept the Reservation confirmation.
