Laurel and Chanda were the caretakers for our two dogs while we were away for 3 weeks. When we arrived home we could tell that Roxy and Lady were well cared for and loved on. We highly recommend Creature Comforts. We plan to use them any time we have a doggy care need.

So glad to have Marcia Kay!

I second everything other reviewers have said. Marcia Kay has taken care of our dogs and cats for several years. I so appreciate her professionalism, with every detail taken care of. When Marcia Kay has not been able to take care of our animals personally, she has brought caregivers to meet the animals and to learn all the particulars of our animal routine. She has sent us pictures of the dogs going for a walk, and has even spent the night with our little Frankie so he didn't get too lonesome! He loves her!
Marcia is a true animal lover who has turned that love and commitment into a first class service provider business.

happy dogs

I have used Creature Comforts on numerous occasions. First of all, it is run like a business, very professional. I have complete confidence leaving my dogs in their care. I love how they send me photos of my dogs while they are out walking. I love reading the report cards for each dog when I return. The dogs never seem adversely affected by my absence. They always make extra efforts like cleaning up accidents or messes and they have come through for me in emergencies more than once. Peace of mind is critical when you're away from beloved pets. I highly recommend this service.

In-home care

Creature Comforts is a trusted pet-sitting service we have used several times. Service is above and beyond with the highest integrity. We even had notes from our pets when we returned from a trip. I recommend Creature Comforts to my friends who need these services.

Great service

Thank you and your crew for the terrific care you gave my pets! It was really nice to get updates over the weekend. Everything is just as it should be at my house. All my critters are well and happy.

Can't think of anything better

I have 2 horses on my property. I was worried I would NEVER be able to leave home or would have to bother friends (not horse people) who know nothing about these animals. That would make me nervous.The Creature Comforts Team is relaible, kind, and so helpful. I can go out of town without stressing my horses and spending a fortune by trailering them to short-term boarding facilities. I love that if they don't hear from me when I return, they reach out. The animals come first.I have yet to take a vacation without my dog but will DEFINITELY utilize Creature Comforts for her rather than a boarding facility.I love the extra touches like bringing in mail, watering plants, etc.

Consideration is amazing.

In February I was hospitalized. Not only did my pets get care in an emergency situation but Marcia Kay and Gina also brought my dogs into my room at Freeman! They took the time to call the hospital, approve of my pets visiting, then brought them to me. It was the best medicine ever; my pain level dropped in that moment and it never again rose up to the pre-doggie-visit level. I consider this beyond the call of duty and am so grateful for the whole visit. Who else would have thought of and done this? If you need someone who will go above and beyond the call of the job then you need Creature Comforts.

Amanda, we were happy to bring your doggies to the hospital room. We were so excited when the admins said it would be ok. The pups were so-o-o happy to see you! And Gina and I were so happy with the way you and the dogs were able to help each other. We are glad you are home now. Thank you for the gracious words!

Creature Comforts takes great care of my pets and my house when I go out of town. Dogs, cats, hens, and a rabbit are all well cared for and happy when I get home. I trust them completely and know they will contact me if there are any irregularities. My dogs LOVE them. Thanks!!

Great pet care

Marcia Kay and Rob are professionals! I have a difficult, aging, crabby doxie, but they listen and work hard to meet his needs. I don't think I would be able to travel without their care. I'm very grateful for their help and dedication!

Thank you very much! No matter how your doxie is, I really care about him. I strive to be sure he is comfortable, eats well, and gets treats and company. Hey, we are all "crabby" once in awhile, right? 🙂 Tender loving care goes a long way.

We have used creature comforts for about 5 years now.. We absolutely love Marcia Kay and staff. So comforting knowing while we are away she is there caring for our "babies". We had to call her once for an emergency situation and there was no hesitancy on her part to run right over and check on our "babies". she's amazing and I would highly recommend her.

We feel wonderful knowing you put your trust in our care of your pets. We know how much you love the furry babies, and they truly are so very good. Thanks for letting us care for them when you need help!

From Angie’s List:  “Marcia Kay takes care of our four cats in our own home when we go on vacation. She visits daily and feeds and waters them, scoops the boxes and brushes and pets them. She gives them medicine if they need it. She leaves a detailed report with the bill letting us know how they did. MKF is very professional. We trust her with a key to our house. She waters our plant if it needs it and if the cats knock something over she will clean it up and leave a note to inform us. We would highly recommend her. Our cats love her too!”


From Facebook page: “Our cats had a problem throwing up, and we thought we had tried everything. Marcia Kay figured out that we were over-feeding them and also experimented until she found just the right amount of feed to give. Now we have no more pukes! Marcia Kay is a genius!”


From LocalYahoo.com:   “Marcia Kay Foster has been taking care of our kitties while we are on vacation for many years. She does a great job. We feel much better having them stay at home rather than boarding them at the vet. It is more economical for us too as we have 5 cats at two locations. They are inside kitties only and if they stay at home, they are not exposed to any extra contagions. One of them is a very nervous kitty and does not travel in the car well. It is better for him to be able to stay with his Mom and siblings in his natural environment than be crated and brought where he would be scared by barking dogs and strange cats. Marcia leaves detailed notes about how the kitties interact with her and sometimes sends us a photo or two from her phone to let us see how they are doing. It makes leaving them for two weeks easier, knowing how they are well taken care of. We have also used Marcia Kay to take the cats to their annual vet visits when we are too busy to be able to do it. She picks them up and takes them to the vet and brings them home. We wouldn’t have anyone else. I can’t recommend her any more highly than this. Definitely a 5 star customer service provider.”

“Thanks for taking good care of our pets. I always know they are in good hands with you. You always take the extra time to ensure they get the right amount of food and if they need medicine.”
