Moment To Pawz Pet Service is dedicated to my loving Great Aunt the first Animal Whisperer.
My Love for animals was sparked by my family, the main influencer that helped me channel my love for animals and healing abilities to care for them was my Great Aunt. She cared for a lot of animals, mostly strays that she would find homeless or abandoned near her building.
She also rescued many from the shelters that were destined to be destroyed, participated in the trap/neuter program and I would help her. The Tree House and Humane Society of Chicago now named The Anti- Cruelty Society was her home away from home. These cats and dogs lived happily in her large enclosed back porch. She owned a two-flat building on the south side of Chicago. Visiting my Aunt was fun because I knew there would be a new cat or dog living there.
A typical day at her house when we would stay over: 4 am wake up consisting of mopping, scooping up poop from the cat's section, sweeping, laying down fresh newspapers. The cats would deliver some cat licks, rubbing up against us, occasional love nips and lots of purring.
For the dogs, the same cleaning applied to them and I provided daily exercise. I also took care of my Grandmother's dog, played with the strays in my neighborhood and even bringing a few home.
Fast forward to adulthood I became the "cat lady" first. I took in strays, cleaned them up picking off my share of ticks, and fleas. I cared for sick cats and nursed them back to health. I aided in many animal births including from my old cat name Mami. She had three of the cutest kittens. I was a proud grandma. When they were older I found them all forever homes.
As any good pet parent knows that peace, love and joy animals can provide for our well being. The true unconditional compassion that animals honestly show you. Their loyalty is paramount, they just know how you are feeling and will do whatever they can to brighten up your day. Animals are essential to life.
I started this business to be an extra helping hand in day to day living for pet parents. Situations in life happen beyond our control at times and it isn't always easy to manage either. I also read/hear so many stories of abused, abandoned, and neglected animals. My space is a home away from home, where each pet can relax, socialize and simply just be themselves. I want pet owners to feel good, to know they have someone when they need a break, vacation, work, moved and tragedy.
One name that I am called the most is the "Animal Whisperer"-a title some of my clients call me today. I am also called Pet Nanny, Mama Desla and Auntie Desla to your little ones. Whatever the name these animals they are in good hands and they have the ultimate loving pack leader.
Looking forward to meeting you and your little one soon! For those of you that are apart of the pack enjoy the service. Love, Desla
