The zookeepers and storytellers at Tiny Tails to You! travel from town to town to organize pop-up petting zoos four days a week, and lease out hands-on learning experiences for festivals, summer camps, and private parties. What beasts turn up at these parties is up to the customer, who might arrange for anything from an avalanche of fluffy bunnies and baby birds to an encampment of chinchillas, hedgehogs, leopard geckos, and tortoises. The staff's love for animals extends beyond informative show-and-tells—head zookeeper Ed Bradfield offers pet-sitting services for dogs, cats, exotic pets, and house-trained rocks, and the zookeepers are nearly always offering baby bunnies for adoption.
For more than 26 years, the licensed and insured cleaning crews from A-Best Water Damage Restoration have been cleansing carpets and upholstery after flood damage or everyday wear.

The company is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to schedule an appointment or call for help dealing with a water-damage emergency.

For more than 25 years, The Steam Team has dispatched crews to residential and commercial sites to clean up and make repairs. The company's insured technicians often begin by hauling out hot-water-extraction systems that use steam to remove embedded dirt. While they're at it, the techs can also clean upholstery and leather, refinish hardwood floors, and clear air ducts of dirt and crawling action heroes. The team even repairs damage caused by fire, wind, and hail. The Steam Team does all this using biodegradable, nontoxic products that are safe for humans and pets.
An offshoot of Blue Whale Moving Company, eco-friendly Humpback Junk Removal carts away clutter without filling up landfills. The company’s CEO was previously on the board of Goodwill, and the community spirit he demonstrated there is reflected in Humpback’s disposal procedure. Technicians crisscross Austin collecting truckloads of discarded items such as furniture, appliances, and yard waste before dropping off salvageable material at Goodwill and running loads through local recycling centers, saving the dump as an absolute last means of disposal. Thoughtfulness likewise infuses the crew's demeanor during house calls, as they take care to meticulously clean up any messes they make and do all their own carrying, cleaning, sorting, and dance choreography.
Fresh, dust-free aromas waft across spotless floors after visits from The Cleaner Way's trained technicians, who use natural Melaleuca products to sanitize bathrooms, detail baseboards, and remove buildup from blinds. The line of cleaning supplies eschews toxic substances—such as chlorine-based bleach, ammonia, and formaldehyde—in favor of noncaustic, nonstinky ingredients that are safe for children and pets. In addition to residential cleaning services, they also scour construction sites from ceiling to floor, removing that thin film of white dust and beer that accumulates during the stressful building process.
