$69 for Three Hours of In-Home Pet Care ($155 Value)
Sporting 18 years’ experience and membership in the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians, Owner Shawn Amerlinck cares for pets when owners are away, or under the pressure of physical limitations or heavy schedules. During a three-hour in-home session, the registered technician coddles furry friends with services of the owner’s choosing, such as baths, nail trimmings, and ear cleanings. He can also handle feeding, playing and/or walking, and basic cleaning for litter boxes, yards, or doggie mansions, and he is qualified to administer or inject prescribed medications.
My Pet's Butler
Taking a pet to the kennel or veterinarian, be it for a quick grooming or a few days of boarding, can prove highly stressful for cats and dogs, as well as for their well-meaning owners. Seeing an opportunity to help both animals and their human parents, registered veterinary technician Shawn Amerlinck realized his dream of starting a pet-care company that offered in-home services. Amerlinck designed his services around the idea that a busy lifestyle or physical limitations should not prevent a person from experiencing the joys of pet ownership, nor should it limit them to owning only low-maintenance gold fish or pet sloths. Under his care, cats and dogs can experience true pampering with in-home grooming, litter cleaning or walking, prescription-medicine administration (including injections), and pet sitting, and he will even help owners who are away by taking care of household responsibilities such as bringing in the mail or singing lullabies to lonely lawn flamingos. Featured in The Windsor Star for his pet-centric approach, Amerlinck operates on the belief that animals should be "treated like part of the family."
