Polly is an exceptional human being in every way. In her company dogs, cats and other creatures great and small are happier, more comfortable and better cared for than you might do for your own beloved pet.

You couldn’t do better.

Polly loves animals and she has a beautiful connection with them. She is attentive and very professional and send us pictures and updates every few hours.
