    Donations are needed for Metrowest pet pantry in Millis
    New statistics show that one in six American families are struggling to make ends meet and now rely on Food Banks as their only source of food. Sadly, these stats make no mention of how many pet family members are also affected by this economic down turn.
    Our mission is to keep pets and their families together through times of economic difficulties. We temporarily provide low/no cost food and supplies to pet owners in need, and encourage them to volunteer their time or skills to the pantry in order to help other owners in need.
    Critter Visits will pick up donations for them. Please arrange a pickup by sending an email to Please visit their website

    Spring Time!

    Category: News Letter

    What a crazy winter and a beautiful couple of weeks we are having. I do love the sunshine but boy do we need the water. Every day we get to spend with your Pets is a good day for us!

    TICK SEASON IS UPON US Because of the mild winter and early onset of spring the parasites could be bad this year. Check early and often for fleas and ticks. If your dog or cat is not not acting right, it wouldn't hurt to get a Lyme test or a full tick panel at your veterinarian to make sure they are disease free. Here is some info on Ticks to check out...

    Critter Visits turns 10!!!
    In 2002 I needed a change. I was training dogs full time and was searching for new ways to share my love and experience with animals. I decided to fall back on my enjoyment of the outdoors and walking dogs. We now have a wonderful team of people and are growing every year. I can not believe it has not been 10 years! Time flies when your having fun and living your dreams.
