Hello & Welcome! I am so excited to have you visiting our website! We are a group of professional pet sitters that LOVE what we do!


A little bit about me; I moved from a small town in Connecticut to Cave Creek, Arizona with my family in 1999. I was too young to choose where we moved but beyond grateful to land in Cave Creek! I have been a grateful "Creeker" for the past 20 years! My whole life I have had a love and respect for all animals! They have always been a part of my life.  I can remember pet sitting for our neighbor who had a litter of kittens when I was 10 years old (Best job EVER!). Fast forward to today I have been able to turn my years of experience into an incredible company! 


I started Paws & Claws Pet Sitting Services, LLC with the goal to help care for other animals just as I have my own. I would like to make it easier for you to leave your beloved pets home during your travels. Knowing your pets will be cared for with full love and attention by one of our experienced heart centered pet sitters will put your mind at ease while you're away while keeping your pets comfortable at home. I stand by our team of professional pet sitters and everything our company has to offer! We look forward to caring for your pets! 


Each of our sitters has been hand selected by me and is held to a higher standard of pet care. You can rest easy knowing all of our pet sitters and dog walkers have been background screened and are insured, bonded + Pet CPR/First Aid certified. 


Take good care,

Michelle Sabia

I can’t imagine a life without animals. From my youth, I deeply connected and gained interest in an animal’s experience moving through their daily life, whether wild or domesticated. Embracing animals as sentient beings, I passionately advocate optimizing their quality of life in the wild, shelters, sanctuaries and home environments. 


I am excited to work with the exceptional Paws and Claws Pet Sitting Team promoting enhanced, enriched and optimum animal welfare when their human companion is away. Providing peace of mind for the human and for their loved animal companion is my bliss. 


I previously worked as an inaugural member of the esteemed Feline Behavior Team at Arizona Humane Society (AHS). I proposed, piloted and subsequently executed the position of Rounds Specialist at AHS ensuring each animal in the shelter had their environmental, medical, behavioral and enrichment needs met attaining to the highest Standards of Care, as documented in the American Shelter Veterinarians Book of Guidelines. 

I currently volunteer at Home Fur Good shelter in Phoenix, AZ in the capacity of Feline Welfare, Behavior and Enrichment Specialist and maintain my certification for Level 1 Animal Reiki Practitioner. My approach to animal wellbeing encompasses a holistic modality. 


Animals are captive to the energy that is provided to them by humans. I experience grace bringing sunshine to their day showering them with love, light, enrichment and the experience that “all is well”.


Compassionately,

Allison Summerday

I grew up in Minnesota out in the country, surrounded by animals.  We lived on four acres and had horses, cats, dogs, fish, sheep and even a pig.  My mom raised dogs so we had around 50 dogs at all times to care for, feed and love on.  I spent all of my spare time outside playing with the animals.  Our family moved to Arizona in 1975 and I eventually moved to Creek Creek.  I've been lucky enough to be a Creeker for the past 25 years.  I remember riding horses from Rattle Snake Ranch on Dynamite through the washes and desert long before Tatum Boulevard existed.


I have raised my family here and now enjoy watching my grand-kids grow up in Cave Creek.  Throughout my life I've helped dogs deliver puppies, cats deliver kittens and I even delivered a goat, saving both the mom and baby goats life! I live close to our wonderful Cave Creek Museum and enjoy all Cave Creek has to offer through its rich history.


We currently have two wonderful dogs that keep us laughing and add so much love to our home.  I enjoy spending time with pets and giving them the added time and attention they deserve because they give back so much more.  Working with Michelle and the Paws and Claws Pet Sitting Team is an honor and a pleasure because the entire team provides such quality care for your pets.  This gives you the peace of mind that your furry family members are in good hands while you're away.


Thank you,

Linda
