After having a fantastic experience in hiring a pet sitter for her own pets, Terry Richardson decided to open up a pet sitting and dog walking company in 2009. Terry knew she wanted the company to be extremely ‘client focused’; both for pets and their pet parents.
After researching ‘best practices’ in providing this service, Terry opened Little Friends Pet Sitting and Dog Walking for business in February 2010 and our first client came on board in March 2010.
Little Friends now services over 1000 clients in Charlotte and surrounding townships including Pineville, Huntersville, Gastonia, Belmont, Matthews, Fort Mill and Concord to name just a few.
We use over 70+ pet sitters who are chosen first of all for their love of pets, closely followed by the following characteristics: trust, maturity, and experience with pet care. Our pet sitters are bonded and insured and come with excellent references.
Our service offerings include but are not limited to pet sitting, dog walking, and pet taxi. We continue to review our service offerings to ensure we offer what works best for our clients.
Little Friends has always been focused on the pet community and implemented our Pawz for Giving program in 2014. Each month we select a rescue to support and offer a campaign designed specifically for that rescue’s needs. Whether a food drive, toy drive, or treat drive, we use our social media and other marketing venues to advertise the drive to our current clients and others.
At Little Friends, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service to our clients and their precious pets. Terry has combined her business experience with a love of animals to develop a business model that allows Little Friends Pet Sitting & Dog Walking to deliver top-notch service. We work hard to ensure that all of our team members are not only animal lovers, but service-oriented, trustworthy, reliable, and hardworking as well.
