Hi I’m Laura Stauffiger! I own and operate Laura’s Critter Care, LLC in Amherst, New York. Thank you for visiting my web site. I understand that your home and pets are your most valuable possessions. I am a dedicated animal lover, life-long pet owner and an experienced animal care provider. I started sitting for pets while in High School and College to make extra money.
I spent 20 years in the corporate world as a Regional Manager in the employment services industry. I oversaw sales and operations for up to 6 different locations, managing anywhere from 10-50 internal employees as well as upwards of 400-1,000 temporary employees at any given time. I decided to follow my dreams and work with animals. So I retired from the corporate world and started Laura’s Critter Care, LLC.
I care for all types of pets, not just dogs and cats. Some of my clients have included goats, birds, fish, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, other small animals, and poultry. No matter what type of pet you have, I can sit for you! . My husband and I also share our home with 3 cats and 3 dogs, and an African Grey Parrot. We have previously owned other breeds of birds, fish, rodants, a bermese snake and a boa snake. Most of our pets have been rescued.
I am a member of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce, Chamber of Commerce of the Tonawandas, petsitUSA and Pet Sitters International . PSI and petsitUSA provides valuable resources for the professional pet sitter, as well as continuing education opportunities. I am also college educated and have attended classes on dog training, pet care and animal health and I am PetSaver certified through PetTech. In August 2010 I was asked by WGRZ.com to be one of their Amherst Community , Clarence Community, North Buffalo Community and Williamsville Community Content Providers for the pet section.
I am bonded and insured through Business Insurers of the Carolina’s and I am vet recommended.
I have been the personal pet sitter and dog walker for clients such as Brandon Spikes, Linebacker of the Buffalo Bills, EJ Manuel, Quarterback of the Buffalo Bills, Adam Benigni, Sports Director/Anchor for @WGRZ (NBC) Buffalo, Kristy Mazurek, Host- 2 Sides at WGRZ – Channel 2 and Maria Genero, Meteorologist for Daybreak and is co-host of The Healthy Zone on Channel 2 @ WGRZ (NBC) Buffalo.
