Animals have been my life love which is why I began this unique business and became an animal activist in speaking for the innocent and voiceless to strengthen animal cruelty laws in the state of Massachusetts.
I've worked with many rescue, senior and chronically ill animals. I have frequently been called an animal whisperer by many due to the unique spiritual connection, love and chemistry I share with with our animal friends.
Founded in January of 2003, we're constantly striving to be second to none in providing high quality, fresh organic dog treats and top notch pet care performed responsibly and trustworthy while you're away from home.
"Deanna *IS* a dog whisperer! She was fantastic with my newly adopted 2-year-old dog who we brought home only 6 weeks prior to our vacation. As background, we adopted our dog on June 30th and she has been extremely skittish from Day 1. She was abused as a puppy and, as a result, she is afraid of everyone and everything and progress has been extremely slow. We were supposed to bring our dog on our vacation but the house we had planned to rent fell through. We ended up in a pickle the week before our vacation because we needed to find someone to come to the house to take care of her. I was afraid that a kennel would be too traumatic for her. I originally contacted another highly rated dog sitting service on Angie's List before reaching out to Precious Pets. After meeting with my dog and initially telling me that he would dog sit (four visits per day), the owner of this other pet service decided my dog was too skittish to take on as a client. I was crushed because, while our dog is extremely nervous around people, she doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. I contacted Deanna at Precious Pets and had her come out for a consultation. When she arrived there was no doubt that Deanna knew what she was doing. Babby is definitely a *special* dog and Deanna couldn't have been better with her. Babby, who still hasn't warmed up to my children or husband, actually licked her hand. If you know our dog, you'd know this was a big deal. Deanna knows exactly how to deal with nervous dogs and every other type of dog, I'm sure. She was as warm and sweet as could be and agreed to watch her on our vacation. We were gone for four nights and everything went off without a hitch. Deanna sent almost daily videos, pictures and text messages to keep me updated on our dog and cats. She made me feel comfortable right away and was absolutely wonderful with our pets and completely trustworthy in our house. Deanna LOVES animals -- it is evident from the moment you meet her -- and the animals love her too! When we came home, I saw that Deanna had washed all the sheets and cleaned up. She took care of everything in our house. Most importantly, Babby was in good spirits. It was obvious Deanna had taken excellent care of Babby while we were gone. The last day of vacation, Deanna gave me a detailed overview of everything that had happened with our pets which was very nice and she's continued to check in about Babby which is wonderful. I can't recommend her highly enough and would use her in a heartbeat the next time we go away."
"Very good group! Care for animals was as good as I would have given to them. Five cats and 1 parrot to be visited every day. Two on a special diet and one needing medication. Blankets, rugs, etc. were changed frequently, floor was swept, litter pans were left immaculate. Bird who does not like strangers was comfortable with care giver. No worries at all in the three weeks away from home. Would HIGHLY recommend"Elizabeth H.
"Deanna is very nice, and we feel comfortable having her in our home. She typically keeps a log of her visits, which is very helpful. She also always checks in to ensure you got home okay. We also love that she is very responsive to email ."Christine C.
"It was great and very convenient. Her rates are really reasonable and she was great with our dog. I loved that my dog could stay in her own home while we were away. Deanna took care of her feedings, spent time playing with her, and additionally took in my mail and took out my trash. She even was able to fix an issue with one of my windows that had caused a problem with my alarm system while I was away (the window had slid down and needed to be pushed back up and relocked). We will definitely will be using her again."Christine S.
*I can't say enough good things about Precious Pets. It's so important to have someone keeping your fur babies when you're on vacation - you can really rest and recover. We're very satisfied customers and will be using her again!" Lauren A.
"Deanna was great! She stayed in regular contact during our entire vacation, including texting us pictures of the critters. When we arrived back, the house was tidy, the critters were well fed, and we were happy. We'll definitely be using Deanna again!" Christopher L.
