Dear Jackpot Clients,
I am writing today with the sad news that I have decided to close Jackpot Pet Sitting after over six years. Our final day of business will be June 30th. All appointments confirmed through June will be completed as planned. Unfortunately, we won't be honoring any appointments past June 30th. I hope that we are giving everyone sufficient notice. We can accept very limited additional appointments for existing clients through the end of May.
Covid has not been kind to our business. I am seeing appointments increase, but we are not currently able to staff for them and Covid has increased the biggest challenge in our industry of staffing quality employees. I am so grateful for our employees over the years. And I am so grateful to our clients over the years, both new and old. Please, know that this decision did not come lightly to me and I am communicating immediately upon this decision becoming finalized to make your transition as easy as possible. I am honored to have gotten to know the cats, dogs, and bunnies of your families! For those that I did not personally get to meet, I looked at every photo and every text and enjoyed.
I hope that in a few months, I may re-group with a more specialized business for special medical needs cats. At this point, that potential business plan is only just an idea. But, as many of you know, my passion is being able to support senior and chronically ill kitties at home, with their families.
I am trying to pull together a few resources for pet sitters that are taking on new clients. But, I don't have anything finalized yet and I didn't want to wait past today to send out this message. I encourage you to be proactive as I do think many people are anxious to return to travel as they receive their vaccinations.
Thank you so much! I will miss everyone!
