Welcome to the Fairfax Pet Care Newsletter!

Hi Friends,
I hope everyone has been staying warm and safe this winter!

We had a whirlwind end of 2017, and 2018 has started with a bang!  Last year marked FPC's best year ever, and we are hoping for an even better year in 2018.

This March we'll celebrate our 6th year in business, and we are so very grateful to all of you for the opportunity to do what we love.  We started with just one employee (me!), and zero clients to call our own.  Today, we average around 15 employees, and we perform over 120 walks/visits a day!  Growing a small business is quite a challenge, and it requires 24/7 attention to make sure everything goes smoothly.  We could never do it without amazing clients like you, and we can't thank you enough for helping us thrive.

We are also quite proud of our wonderful employees, and we plan to continue to grow our team in 2018.  We are currently hiring, so if you know anyone looking for a great job caring for pets, please send them our way!  As a reminder, if you have a favorite walker or sitter, please give them a "shout out" in a 5 star review on Yelp.  They'll get a $25 gift card from us, plus the reward of knowing they're doing a great job!  

Also in 2018, we will begin offering a new plan for group apartment discounts.  While the numbers aren't currently finalized, the basic idea will be that the more residents we have in a single apartment building, the cheaper the price per walk will be for those clients!  We'll of course keep you updated and notify you once the final offer is in place, but it is never too early for you to start spreading the word to your neighbors.

It has been a bit since our last newsletter, so we want to be sure to recognize the winner from our 2017 pet photo contest.  Our winner was Luna (see pic below), and she received a free week of walks for her amazing photo!  Thank you so much to all of our incredible entries.  We look forward to another contest in 2018, and congratulations, Luna!

We also held our 5th Annual Pet Food drive in 2017, which was a HUGE success.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated, and we look forward to bringing in even more awesome goodies for animals in need in 2018!  Here's a shot of all the great stuff we collected last time from our amazing clients:

As a reminder in these cold months, Fairfax Pet Care follows the federal government for snow days.  In addition, a reminder that we do not perform daily package walks on federal holidays.

Also, while it seems a bit far off, please note that we typically are very packed with pet sitting in the month of March (mostly due to spring break).  If you know of any pet sits you will require during the month, please let us know as soon as possible for the best chance at availability.

Now, more than ever, we would really appreciate your support, referrals, and kind reviews to help us continue to do what we love - caring for our furry family!  Please remember to "Like" us on Facebook, and if you appreciate our services, please leave us a 5 star review online (Yelp or Google are best!).  In our news section below, you'll find some great links to leave reviews.  Thank you in advance, and thank you again for all of your support along the way!
Have a paw-tastic day!
