​Please see my handy list of resources below for pet owners. We understand the need to be responsible and so want to make sure you know where to go for your pet needs. While I can offer you services from pet sitting in Chicago to dog walkers in Chicago, I can't offer veterinarian services or adoption services but see below if you are interested in any of these. I have also listed some fun places to take your furry friend. I know that it's important to be well informed so I hope my Chicago pet care resources are helpful!
