Introductory meetings and Key Pickup* – no cost to you

We Love Our Animals and What We Do!

We do more than Cats and Dogs…

Rabbits, chickens, fish, ferrets, guinea pigs, birds, lizards, turtles and frogs – ACT Pet Home Care is familiar with many different animals, and happy to learn about those we aren’t quite so familiar with.

At the free introduction meeting we will come and meet you and your pets. It is important that your pets are comfortable with us, as this will reduce any stress on your pet (or on you) while you are away. That is why we will never accept a new client without going through this process. 

*The first three key pick ups or drop offs each calendar year are free. After which this service is charged at $20 per key pick up / drop off.
