About Me


My name is Nancy Patterson.  I have been caring for pets for over 30 years.  Several years ago I rescued a dog that changed my life.  I should say, he rescued me.  He certainly chose me.  

I walked in and had no intention of taking home another dog. I already had two. He would not leave my side. He made sure I noticed him.  That was only the beginning. 

When I brought him home. I knew it would be an uphill battle. That was an understatement.  He had been abused and was very reactive. Even though he was small, he was fearful and tough.  I had to walk him around my house on a leash because he would go after my other two dogs. I knew he had to learn to trust me,  I slept on the floor with him and held him every night, even though he resisted. He scratched me and did everything to push me away.  I never gave up on him.

One day instead of scratching me, he rested his head on my lap. I cried. I knew that I was making progress. He raised his head and licked my tears.  From that moment on, he started prancing around with confidence. He is now the loving and playful dog he was intended to be. 

He opened my eyes. What I thought was happiness, didn't compare to how I felt at that moment.  I knew helping him learn to love and trust enabled him to feel and enjoy life. I always loved taking care of animals. I knew from that moment on, it was time for me to follow my passion.  I have never looked back.

"That Special Person"

"Nancy has been a lifesaver..she takes wonderful care of my dogs and cats when I need to work my double shifts. From the first moment she stepped into my home I knew she loved her job and all animals. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank You Nancy for all you do!"

“We have looked for that special person to care for our fur kids for years. It was always one thing or another but in the end none of them worked out. Finding Nancy was a Godsend, we have two dogs, both are full of energy and love but one is very shy and reserved around strangers. You can see through the timeline photos that Nancy has taken the time to become her trusted friend and she now actually comes out of our bedroom when Nancy arrives. In earning her trust, Nancy has earned ours. We trust her implicitly but more importantly our dogs trust her. We always get updates and she has never been a no-show. Thank you for being here for us and for our fur kids.”

"Absolutely Amazing"

“Nancy has been absolutely amazing since we moved to the Middletown area and we are lucky to have her taking care of our dog. Our dog Dale loves when Nancy comes and we can tell he's had a nice long walk at the end of the day. Nancy cares so much about all of her clients, is excellent with communication and has just been incredible all around. Thanks Nancy for taking such great care of our boy!”
