Palm Desert has a new pet care service. Kathleen Huffman, owner and general manager, opened Fetch! Pet Care of Palm Desert on Feb. 1.
After being in the corporate world and traveling for 20 years, Huffman knew how difficult it was to always find a sitter for her precious pets. Inspired by her two Shih Tzu dogs, Huffman considered starting professional pet-sitting and dog-walking services.
A franchise company headquartered in Berkeley was founded in 2002 by Paul Mann. When Mann grew weary of searching for the right pet sitter, his solution was to start his own pet-sitting and -walking enterprise and use that as the business model for home-based franchises. So, this was a natural fit for Huffman to start Fetch! Pet Care of Palm Desert.
