Los Angeles pet lovers.
Read What Some of Our Advertisers Have To Say:
In November, 2002 when Lucky Dog Pet Sitting was only a glimmer, we heard about The Pet Press and thought that it would be a great place to start. We didn’t know how to begin really… we just knew that if you don’t advertise, how is anyone going to know you exist. The first person I spoke with was Jacqui. She was a ton of help. She gave me all the information I needed to get started, not to mention she had a great disposition and wonderful personality. When it came time to speak to you regarding what the ad would look like, I was a bit ignorant and didn’t really know how to proceed. You helped me without making me feel like a complete moron. You mentioned that it may take about 3 months to get a response from the ad. I was patient knowing these things take time. Well, I am happy to say, we got a response within the first month of advertising! We knew we were on our way. Little did we know that it was going to propel our business into the living thing it has become only a short year and a half later. Since then, we are booked daily and have bookings all the way into next year!
About 90 percent of our client base has heard about us from The Pet Press and the rest are referrals from that 90 percent. We are currently advertising in other known publications, but in my experience they have not benefited us as much as The Pet Press has. I also wanted to mention that our ads have paid for themselves time and time again, so we feel it is worth every penny to advertise with you. It is our opinion that if you are a pet sitter and need to advertise, do it with The Pet Press.
Here are some of the things we have been able to accomplish since advertising with you:
- Monthly donations to CAPS (Companion Animal Welfare Society)
- Maintain long lasting relationships with people and pets
- Enhance our quality of life
- Grow, thus being able to give work to others
I want to again say thank you so much for The Pet Press and for giving us all the opportunity to succeed where we may not have had the chance to otherwise. I hope for further success and that we continue working together to help each other make success happen.

P.S. I've received several calls, from Thousand Hills to Pasadena about Melissa's story. Everyone loved it. Thanks!
Thank you also for mentioning the importance of the unification of the entire Los Angeles community of those involved in animal welfare and rescue. The ultimate power of so many working together would be the victory over all we are fighting for and against. But, the battle against egos is a mighty one knowing it has destroyed more than it has ever created.
Pet Press is like Topsy - it just keeps on growing and growing.
