Dear Care 4 Paws LLC,

June 16, 2010:  Monique's Review of: Care 4 Paws LLC

Fantastic Service was prompt and thorough with a report card at the end of the time period! (thankfully my cat got an A :)  Pricing was very reasonable and I felt that the care went above and beyond. My cat still plays with the stuff mouse left behind!

Dear Rani and Rose:

Thanks so much for caring for Stanley while we were away. The last thing we need while on vacation is to worry about our beloved cat. Knowing that he was in good hands relieved us of any worries. Your professionalism is exceeded only by your care for your clientele! We very much appreciate all you did for Stanley and will not hesitate to call on you again.

We have – and will continue to – recommend your services to anyone in need of pet services.

Jackie h.'s Review of: Care 4 Paws LLC

June 17, 2010

I cannot say enough good things! I could not be happier with the experiences I have had withRani from Care 4 Paws LLC. My three dogs have been cared for by Rani and I cannot say enough positive things about her and her company. She is responsible, reliable and loving. My dogs adore her and felt very content being in her care. She put my mind at ease just as soon as I met her for thefirst time and I felt immediately comfortable leaving my loved ones for her to care for while we are away. I have never left my dogs with anyone in the past 10 years that we have had them until I met Rani.

A match made in heaven,thank you!

Rani is the best!   Her gentle care for your pet is over and above what over pet sitters offer.

Dear Rani,

I am so happy I found Care4Paws. Leaving our 4 dogs while we go on vacation is always stressful for us. We find ourselves worrying so much that we never have a good time. This was our first experience with you and we were thrilled with the careful attention you paid to our dogs. From the moment we met you, we were at ease knowing that our dogs would be taken care of and we had nothing to worry about. You took the time to learn each of their personalities and took special care of their fears especially during thunderstorms. Our newest dog Millie is afraid of most people and usually hides from everyone but she fell in love with you and Rosemarie in a matter of hours. We were amazed at her progress when we returned. We loved receiving the progress report at the end of the week and also appreciated your text messages keeping us up to date. Our house was well taken care of and it was good to come home to happy dogs. We will definitely be calling you again and have already referred you to our friends. Thank you again from both of us and special thanks from the dog kids, Jake, Mud, Bailey and Millie.

Thanks Rani,  I appreciate you. I think one of the most important things for me is that you are flexible and able to adapt to last minute scheduling changes. My schedule is completely NUTS most of the time and always changing, so I appreciate your adaptability and willingness to accommodate =) I don’t have to worry because I know that she is taken care of. I appreciate the notes about her bathroom schedule so I know what to expect on my walk with her when I get home at the end of the day.

Thanks and have a nice weekend!

Hi, I made it home. Thanks for making today work, I really appreciate it. I am so happy that I found you both, as it is great knowing the dogs have someone they like looking after them and that they are in the comfort of their own home. We will see (at least the boys will) you soon for Memorial Day
Fri thru Tues, as previously planned..
Thanks again,

My name is Lauri.  I just wanted to let you know how wonderful Rani is...  I have 3 small dogs who are all now older, but still act like pups... She comes and walks my one dog about 4 times a week and looks after the other two by letting them out and giving treats. She has been a wonderful addition to my family and has been helping out for many years now. My son is now 3 and she has been helping in all needed situations,such as his birth, weekend get a ways, holidays, vacations....you name it.... I highly recommend and trust her with everything!

Hard to find someone like her...she is extremely reliable too.

Best of luck,

I enjoyed your service and appreciated your willingness to come on short notice at times.I appreciated your suggestions on training Teddy while he was a small pup. Most importantly, both Paul and I appreciate the care that you gave him. We would refer your service.
Best Regards,

My name is Heidi and I am very happy to write a reference for Rani Portalise and the staff of Care 4 Paws.Rani and Rosie have taken care of my two cats for one year. Rani is very compassionate, loving, attentive, and confident in her approach to caring for our cats.We have a kitten who is 8 months old and I consider Rani to be his second "Mommy."  In addition to caring for our cats I also love the fact that Care 4 Paws makes a security check of our house, brings in the mail, turns on the lights, raises or lowers the window shades and many extra touches that help to keep our house looking lived in while we are away. I use Care 4 Paws a lot and I am always happy with the consistent and reliable service. I have used Care 4 Paws to help socialize our baby kitten as well as providing care and feeding of our cats on an extended basis. I'm sure you will be very happy with Rani and her staff.


Dear Rani,

We wanted to express our thanks to Care 4 Paws, which true to its name, lets us enjoy our vacations and trips with complete peace of mind. Rosie cares for our two dogs like they were her own and on our recent trip to Canada, frequently checked our garage and driveway during a tropical storm to make sure that water was not coming in. We had told her it could be a problem and she didn’t want us to come home to water in the basement. She often goes above and beyond for our dogs and we appreciate it! Our neighbors have even commented on how much quality time she spends with them. We will continue to have faith and trust in Care 4 Paws for future dog sitting. Thanks so much,

Maureen M

Thank you so much. I am so thankful to have found you. I’m glad to know Ralph and Alice are in good hands!  Your process of leaving notes is awesome – I think that’s a good detail that a lot of people who care for animals don’t do.

Best,  James

Re: care 4 sushi

Thanks so much Rani!!.. thanks for taking such great care of sushi I really appreciate it.. catnip

I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for the use of Care4paws to take care of your pets. I have a wide assortment of pets to include a large macaw, 4 cats, 2 dogs & tropical fish. In addition to this, my oldest cat is diabetic & on insulin daily. I have known & utilized Rani as my pet sitter for the past 4+ years. I am always amazed that my babies are all well adjusted on my return from being away. This is testament in & of itself as to the quality of care that she provides.

Sincerely, Evie J  Lake Hiawatha

AWESOME!!! You both are great. The boys really love you and we know they are in good hands

We have been using Rani & Ro for 2 years and have always been very happy with the level of service and care they provide. When Cody (our German Shepherd who recently passed away) was still with us, they gave us a a special bowl that helped to insure that he didn't eat too quickly and bloat. We just came back from a 10-day trip and found our other German Shepherd Jake received extra special attention because he no longer had his companion Cody. Rani & Ro are very compassionate and in tune with Jake's needs. We couldn't feel better leaving Jake with them - they care for him as we would, and give him better grades too - he got an A+ on his report card!  I give Rani and Rosie an A++ too!! Thanks Rani & Ro for taking the concern out of leaving our beloved pet at home!

Please feel free to have any future client contact us for a reference.

Dear Care 4 Paws LLC,

Elise L.'s Review (Dylan's mom) I am so thrilled regarding the service from Rani the owner of Care 4 Paws. I can have peace of mind while I am out that my dog will be walked promptly and given play time. I have also called on the same day to arrange for a walk for my dog and Rani has been able to accommodate me.

She's the best!

Jennifer S.'s Review of: Care 4 Paws LLC

Meow Meow's Mommy,  I can always count on Care For Paws LLC, and that gives me peace of mind when I need to travel. They love my cat and always leave a report card on his behavior and eating habits; which is extremely helpful. I can also count on them to give him lots of love.

Rani and Rose truly care for and about all your paws.

Dear Care 4 Paws LLC,

Dawn D.'s Review of: Care 4 Paws LLC

A wonderful pet sitting business Care 4 Paws LLC has cared for our cat ever since he was a kitten (2 yrs ago) and they are wonderful. They play with him, feed him, and leave plenty of information as to how he was while we were gone. If I ever have questions while we are gone, I can call and get a prompt answer, and they will call with any questions or problems. Rose and Rani are a great team. No complaints, just lots of compliments. I will continue to call them when I need them.

May 2010 Rani, 

Thanks for caring for my critters! You are a much appreciated Sitter!Thank you for taking such good care of our boys while we were out getting hitched…The care and concern given to our precious pets allowed us to enjoy our honeymoon vacation without having to do any worrying. Our boys got love and attention and playtime, which no doubt helped them adjust to having recently lost their brother.

I highly recommend Care 4 Paws LLC!

Love Bridget, Tommy, Krystal Toby and Alfie
