Avian Pet Sitting

Happy Pets cares for all types of pets, including Avian.  We have many years experience in taking care of birds.  I can’t imagine taking my Blue and Gold Macaw to a boarding facility.  The exposure to any bird disease’s are hard to treat or to even diagnose, never mind the cost.  If you would rather your feathered friend stay home while you are away for a business trip or vacation Happy Pets will gladly provide the loving individualized care, you give your bird or parrot yourself, in your own home in the environment your feathered friend is accustomed to.  There will be no upset or stress feathered friend to be worried about while you are away.



We provide fresh food and water. Including the cutting up of fresh vegetables and fruits daily, refilling their foraging toys.  Cleaning of the papers in the cage or litter on the bottom.  Misting water daily or changing their bath water.  Birds such as a Cockatiel, Conure or Macaw need daily human interaction, they have feelings too.  They get lonely just as any other pet does.  They may not want a new human to touch them or play with them but we will talk to your feathered friend to give them company.    

While we take care of your feather friend, included is the care of your home to make it looked lived in.  Bring in the mail and newspaper daily, alternate lights, close and open the blinds/curtains. Take the trash receptacle to the curb for pick-up, water house plants.  

Happy Pets likes to leave on a television or radio to also keep your feathered friend company. 

If you have any questions or concerns or a special request, call Cathy at 520-227-3034.  We cater and care for your pets as we do our own.

Rats as Pets

  Yes, I said Rats. They make awesome pets and are clean.   Most Rats do not bite, compared to a hamster or gerbil, in the past I have had pet rats and mostly just one rat at a time. I used to keep the rat in a 10 Gal aquarium which I find out is wrong. The rat would just lie in the Aquarium all day and looked depressed. Times have changed for the better for the rat. I started reading and doing research. Rats are sociable. Always have at least two Rats together, same sex of course or you will have many more unless they are neutered. Rats like to run and play with each other and their toys. Homemade toys are the best and are cheap.   Housing:   First let me talk about housing for the Rats. Please don’t keep them in an aquarium. The air does not circulate in them to well and the ammonia builds up quickly from their urine and will cause the rats to have upper respiratory infections. Rats are clean; they clean themselves daily like a cat. They also can be litter box trained.

Cancer in Dogs

It has been awhile since I have posted anything.  There has been a reason why.  We have gone through some great sadness and loss lately. My favorite Best girl, Peepot was diagnosed with Lympho Sarcoma, which is cancer in the Lymph nodes. The Doctor said she may last 2 months. She was able to last 3 months. After ending her suffering we took out Champion Retriever to the Doctor as he was lame on his front right leg for no reason for a couple days. Roux underwent many tests, blood work, several x-rays etc. We sent out blood work test for Valley Fever as that can cause lameness and bone tumors. He had a big very hard swelling on his right front leg's knuckle/knee area that came up suddenly, almost overnight.  The Doctor suspected Bone Cancer, yes, Osteosarcoma, the worst thing that could happen to our fast running always on the go, born to retrieve Champion that loves his work and won't stop Chocolate Labrador.  This photo shows the size of the hard growth on Roux's ri

The Summer Heat and our Pets

            On this past Saturday after calling the Sheriff, I thought I would remind us of the summer heat and what is can and will do our pets. I have seen it first hand and it is not a easy thing to witness or our 4 footed kids, fur babies, extended family.     I was driving down the street and I saw a black dog tied to a post in the center of a yard. The line was tangled and the dog could barely move 6-12 inches. There was no shade for the dog or water. The dog was panting very stressed. I could not go in their yard myself so I called the Sheriff as it was in the county to take care of the situation of the dog being overheated and if left it could possibly die of heatstroke.  We as pet lover's, guardian's of all pet's must not turn the other way. It is a matter of life and death for this animal in a situation like this. Don't turn your back on them, please. We all need to watch out for their safety.   I will not hesitate.    Below are some ch
