Lusby, MD- Over the next several weeks, thousands of Southern Marylanders will head out of town for the holidays, often times having to leave their furry family members behind.

If you’re looking for a quality, reliable, passionate pet care service, Paws on the Bay is just that. The small pet sitting, dog walking, pet boarding business was started nearly two years ago by Kelly Gerren.

Gerren has an unwavering love for animals. Her enthusiasm is evident the moment you meet her. Gerren cares for your pets as if they were her own.

Gerren’s experience spans years, including working at various animal shelters, zoos and wildlife centers. Caring for animals is her passion.

When she and her husband moved to Lusby, the idea for Paws on the Bay was born and Gerren never looked back. A fully licensed, bonded and insured pet care service, Gerren will make sure your animals will receive the love, care and attention they need while you’re away. “Most of our clients are people who work on base or who have shift work,” Gerren said. “We take your dogs for walks, play with them in the yard and give them lots of cuddles.”

In addition to her pet sitting service, Gerren offers daily dog walking for those of you who worry about your four-legged family members being cooped up during the day. If you’re heading out of town, Gerren can make sure your pets, and your home, are cared for. If you prefer, Gerren also offers boarding services at her own home. “This time of year is extremely busy with many people heading out of town,” Gerren noted.

Gerren also has experience with giving pets medicine, including injections and oral medications. She said she’s also available on short notice. “Sometimes our clients will get stuck in traffic on the bridge and they’re worried about their dog. They can call me and I would be happy to help out.”

Gerren said her clients notice a big change in their pet’s behavior when they hire her service. “Dogs can become destructive when they’re home alone. Our clients have said they no longer have messes in their house and it’s nice to come home to a clean house.”

Gerren understands your pets need someone who will care for them as if they are their own. “I’m always very easy to get a hold of. I will gladly give you updates and send you pictures.” Gerren even leaves notes and treats for her new clients. “I pride myself on taking care of your pets and being on time. I love them like they’re my own.”

Paws on the Bay serves both Southern Calvert and Southern St. Mary's County. You can visit Paws on the Bay’s website or Facebook page for more information and to contact Gerren.
