As we begin each year, I always take time to reflect upon the year that has passed and wonder what the New Year will bring. 2022 is no different. Many of us have experienced changes, have had challenges, have made sacrifices, and are still trying to figure out and adapt to whatever ‘new level of norm’ is evolving, as we continue to navigate through a pandemic that seems to never truly end. 

A few brief updates as we begin the year – our little business continues to be blessed and we are truly grateful; so many businesses have been or will be impacted negatively. We are still in business, and for some, this is no longer the case. How lucky are we to have begun our 10th year of serving our clients and community? A few of our Associates have moved on to other life adventures, some planned and some not planned. That, in conjunction with the challenges we have experienced in hiring new Associates, have put the squeeze on our availability to our valued clients, but we believe that this too shall pass and we will continue to focus upon our exceptional service levels for each and every client, their pets, and property and do the very best we can with the resources we have.

If you or someone you know has an interest in part-time professional pet care work, please let us know! We are continuing to recruit and hire for Pet Care Associates and a Client Care Manager. Working with pets is so rewarding and enjoyable! This, combined with a flexible work schedule, makes working for Odds & Ends, LLC perfect for someone that is in college, is retired, or is simply wanting to hang out with pets, make and build some wonderful relationships with clients, and make a little extra money. It’s so easy to apply and be considered; just go to our website, under the Join The Crew section, or, click on this link:

Next, considering inflation and the ever fluctuating prices of some commodities and basic goods, along with business requirements such as insurance, we may need to adjust our pricing during the second quarter of this year. Our prices continue to remain competitive but in order to continue as your professional pet care provider and cover the required overhead (licensing, certifications, insurance, training, labor, and other costs), we must periodically evaluate and adjust as needed. We certainly appreciate your continued support of our little business and your trust in us as your pet care provider of choice!

Finally, if you are not already doing so, please do follow us on Facebook and Instagram. A lot of helpful, educational, practical and sometimes just plain funny information is posted regularly; your support of our social media platforms is so important and so appreciated! 

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us should you have feedback, suggestions for improvement, or any questions! 

Making Life Easier – this is our mission and this is our passion; thank you to everyone for their support and encouragement!
Happy New Year 2022!!
