We utilize pet sitting software, Time To Pet, which allows us to sends instant updates to you via email or App messenger at the end of each visit.

Clients have access to their our secure and encrypted client portal where they can view and update personal, home, and pet information so that we have up-to-date information. You can also request services, view open invoices, and much more!

Creature Connections was established in 2008 and has been thriving ever since!

 

On September 1st, 2022, I celebrate 14 years of owning Creature Connections! I'm not sure where the time has gone but what an adventure it has been!!!

I started out as a young 20 something, with no business background, a vet tech degree with a few years of practice under my belt, and a passion for providing excellent care and customer service to our clients.

I have learned and grown over the years. Formed amazing relationships with clients and pet sitters. And have lost sleep many nights questioning business decisions and doubting myself.

The last three years were by far the most challenging but have turned out to be the most rewarding.

Not many people were aware but I was ready to sell and move on a year after covid hit. Business was at a all time low, lost all pet sitters; which was completely understandable with how things were at the time, and I wanted a new adventure.

I tinkered with the idea of just shutting down and interviewed for a few other positions but nothing was panning out. I ended up putting the business up for sale and a few offers came in but something just wasn't sitting right in my gut. After the third offer, I pull it off the market and focused on diving into the company.

Then a year ago I got a call that changed everything.

I was offered to take over another established pet sitting business in the area and I went for it. I merged their clients and pet sitters into Creature Connections and ever since then I have pushed myself to try harder, improve, and change things to make the company what I have always thought it could be.

I am sincerely grateful to all our clients and absolutely amazing pet sitters. With out them none of this would be possible!!

I am also in debit to my husband for always supporting me and pushing me to step out of my comfort zone and take those chances. Also a shout out to all my family and friends who have cheered me on over the years.

Happy Anniversary to Creature Connections!!!

Keys

Front door keypads and garage codes are great but they have failed us in the past due to batteries going out or electrical outages. We prefer to have a lockbox stay at the house so keys stay on the property. They are a safe way for us to access your home and in the event of an emergency we will always be ready to step in quickly to help. You can use your own lockbox or purchase one from us for $18. 

  • Due to safety and liability concerns, we refrain from leaving keys under mats or in mailboxes. 

Misc.

  • In the event we need to run to the store for more supplies, such as food or litter, for your pets there is a $15 shopping fee for any purchases of necessary items, plus reimbursement of purchases.

  • For established clients who wish to meet with us before services are to start, we do charge a $10 fee for any meet and greets.

  • Rates are for services in regular service area. 104th North to Hwy 7,  Hwy 287 in Broomfield East to Quebec in Thornton.
