For many pet owners, planning a vacation involves arranging care for their four-legged family members while they're away.

Since some people don't feel comfortable putting their dog or cat in a kennel, they prefer to keep them at home. Now, residents of North Tampa and New Tampa have a new option for in-home pet sitting.

Paws to Stalls Pet Sitting offers in-home care for dogs and cats, as well as daily dog walking.

"A lot of people treat their animals like family," said owner Cynthia Adams. "They really want them to be comfortable, and that's what we offer."

Another added feature of Paws to Stalls is their equestrian services, such as feeding, watering, and turn in and turn out.

"We're equipped to take care of horses," Adams said.

In addition to being animal lovers, Adams and her staff have extensive backgrounds in medical and animal care. They are certified in pet CPR and first-aid, and are able to administer injections.

Paws to Stalls can accommodate pets whether owners are traveling or just at work all day.

"We go by the animals' schedule, and try to keep them on their schedule so they'll be as comfortable as they can be without their owners there," Adams said.

Paws to Stalls provides service to the Carrollwood, Northdale, Lake Magdalene, Citrus Park, Lutz, and New Tampa areas. To schedule a free consultation, call (813) 382-8133, or visit
