About Me:

I started my business in 1997 primarily because of my love of animals. I credit my mom for instilling in me a strong work ethic and passion towards the animals I care for. Before my mom's passing, she would accompany me on my jobs and crawl around on the floor playing with the pets or helping out by washing bowls and cleaning litter boxes. I have cared for the health and well being of my own animals for over 30 years. During that time, I have gained experience in treating illnesses and injuries as well as detecting various problems that arise from time to time. Pampered Pets Home Care is solely owned by me, Darlene Ehlers. Currently, I provide 100% of the visits but do enlist the help of other sitters in case of emergencies. I feel it is imperative to have professional care for your pets in your absence.
