18 020FSPS is fantastic! Melissa and team are confidential, reliable, and you can tell they love animals.  I have full confidence my dog is well taken care of by FSPS, and she loves her dog walker!

“I guess most folks would say our animals are high maintenance.  They include a 14-yr old Shepherd mix w/cancer, a retired Dutch Shepherd who is not a fan of other dogs, a German Shepherd w/food allergies, a young, rambunctious Lab, a cat who is in constant competition w/the great outdoors to defend her food, and a bunch of chickens who refuse to use their egg laying boxes for easier gathering.  But when we leave town for any length of time, I have 100% confidence that FSPS provides the same level of customized care with all the love and TLC we could wish for.  I know FSPS does not cut corners when it comes to our animal’s individual needs (e.g. meds, feeding instructions, exercise regimens). Their regular communication via text and pictures is just an added bonus.  Look no further: FSPS is the premier in-home Pet Sitting service in Columbia.”

“FSPS has been an absolute lifesaver for our family! We never would have been able to care for our Great Dane, Otis, how we felt he deserved without FSPS.  We are busy with varying schedules and FSPS is always so accommodating and professional.  Otis LOVES Melissa and it means the world to us to have someone we can trust to help us care for him.  FSPS gives us such peace of mind knowing he is being cared for during the day.  We couldn’t be happier with FSPS and would recommend them to absolutely anyone.”

“FSPS and Melissa are the best!  I have 2 dogs and 2 cats and they all get crazy excited when Melissa “visits” them.  She stays at our home when we are out of town so that everyone is comfortable.  I trust Melissa and FSPS 100% and am so grateful to have found such a reliable and compassionate company.  I can tell Melissa loves them as much as we do.”

“Dependable & Trustworthy: Two words that describe FSPS.  Melissa always confirms and leaves care notes after visits to our home.  I like the fact that FSPS adds newspaper and mail pick-up with their services.  My dog, Camry, just adores her.

I went to Europe for 2 weeks. I was afraid to leave my babies with a stranger. I have a young cat that hides from everyone who comes over and doesn’t come out until they leave.  Melissa came over to meet my pets and not only did the young cat stay out while she was here, he walked over to her, sniffed her hand, then licked her.  I knew at that moment that Melissa was going to be a great Pet Sitter and my babies would be well taken care of.

My sister just moved back to Columbia and she now uses Melissa too. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone who wants to enjoy their trips or vacations without worrying about their babies at home.
