Not to mention she is as sweet as can be!"

"Carrie took care of my crazy household of
animals in December 2015. We have a lot of
exotic animals in our house: 2 sugar gliders,
2 snakes, a blue and gold mcaw, a sulcata
tortoise and a chinchilla. Not only did Carrie
do an excellent job caring for the animals, she also added a personal touch and sent us pictures and updates while we were away, which really set our minds at ease. Her care, dedication, compassion, and professionalism was second to none. I would highly highly recommend her to anyone!"

Safe Haven Advocate Pet Care is my go to pet service! Frequently, I ask Carrie
to come to my house and let my puppy out when I know I will be gone for a long period of time; I would recommend her to anyone! Carrie has years of medical experience with animals and caring for them, so I always know my pet's best interest is her number one priority."

"Carrie really took the time to get to know our pets and learn about their needs and personalities. Not only does she come to your home for a meet and greet with you and your pet free of charge to make sure that it is a great fit, but she sends over a "Pet Profile Questionnaire" and Routine Schedule for clients to fill out. She is so thorough when it comes to your pets health. She was so organized, detail oriented and professional... Not to mention how great she was with our pets Buddy and Miley! And that is just the tip of the iceberg! It really put our minds at ease while we were away..."

"I have had several pet sitters throughout the years, and I can safely say that Carrie has provided the best quality pet service for Wyatt - hands down!
Carrie is very consciences about being available to her clients. Regardless of the day/time, Carrie has made an extra effort to be available if Wyatt is in need of a sitter, or if I am away on business and he needs long-term care. Because of this, I am never concerned about contacting Carrie during an 'emergency.' Wyatt is always happy to see Carrie, and he looks forward to her daily visits. As an older dog, his level of enthusiasm is noticeably greater when she visits; she is like one of the family. I have no reservations about calling Carrie to stay with Wyatt. Her experience as a pet technician and certification in CPR only add to the professionalism and confidence level that Carrie brings to our home.
She is outstanding!"

"I have 3 special needs Doxies and was looking for
a qualified dogsitter to come to my house and care
for mybabies.  Someone recommended that I go to
Pet Sitters International.  That is where I found
Carrie's website, Safe Haven Advocate Pet Care & Photography. I loved that it lists that she is Insured, Bonded and especially for my needs, trained in pet
first aid and CPR. 
All three of my dogs have health issues since they are older dogs. I met with Carrie and saw how great she is with my dogs. I consistantly get a text and pictures from Carrie while she is at my house caring for them. It is a great feeling to know that I can trust my dogs and my home to Carrie. 
So thankful I found her!"

My husband and I contacted Carrie because we needed someone to help us out, the day of our wedding. She was very flexible and was able to meet with us for a quick meet and greet as we ran around preparing for the wedding. She also helped us out while we went on our honeymoon. ` We were able to enjoy our time away even more, knowing that our fur babies were in good hands. I loved that she sent us updates of how things were going, she even sent us pictures! How great is that?! Great service and a pro photographer, couldn't ask for anything more! Thank you for everything Carrie!!"

"We were referred to Carrie by a friend of ours and we couldn't be more pleased!! I would definitely recommend Carrie. She is so passionate about animals and treats them as her own. Oden and Sierra absolutely love her!

"Our pup is very fearful of having her nails dremmeled in the company of other dogs. We have witnessed many times in some of the larger chain pet stores how Ginny's dewclaws have been missed, placing her at risk of the nail quik growing out and of her breaking her dewclaws. Carrie is very careful in making sure she dremmels each nail to its proper level without ever hurting our baby! She's also managed to reduce the quik growth of the nail significantly, all within our own home. It's a comfortable environment for our fearful pooch. Carrie is very professional in both her communication and her demeanor. She provides genuine, heartfelt, and trustworthy care for the animals that she treats."

"Carrie is the biggest lover of animals I think I have ever come in
contact with. This is her full time, 24/7 life. She is such a
beautiful person inside and out. She puts so much time
and effort into what she does."

"I work with Carrie at Emergency Veterinary Services so I can say, with confidence, that she is extremely passionate about providing the highest quality of animal care. She routinely goes above and beyond for clients and their pets :)

I remember when she first adopted Ruby-she researched everything she possibly could on how to treat a long bone fracture! She left no stone unturned for that little pup and I really believe it saved her leg from being amputated. I am so happy that Carrie is pursuing home pet care because I know she will really enjoy it and do a phenomenal job!"

"I have known Carrie for many years. Also, she cared for our kitty cats at The Carol Stream Animal Hospital. Carrie is a trustworthy, loyal and caring person. Her love and devotion to animals is truly remarkable. 

If you are in need of a sitter for your beloved pet, Carrie will give you the best care and give you one less thing to worry about when you are away!"

"I couldn't be more pleased with the service Carrie offered! She really helps us when we are in a bind. Numberous times, I have been stuck at work and I have called on Carrie, and she is more than willing to go to my house to let our dog out and spend some quality time with him. Just recently, we decided to leave for the weekend with no one to take care of our Otto, and being hesitant to put him in a kennel, we relied on Safe Haven Advocate Pet Care. It was a reassuring feeling knowing our Otto was going to be so well taken care of and an
even better feeling knowing he would be at his own home! 
Thank you Carrie, for everything!!"
