It has been my great pleasure to care for your fur babies over the years.  I have enjoyed the opportunity to provide high quality service, care and individualized attention to your furry loved ones. I have made the very difficult decision to close The Furry Godmother effective July 14, 2023; which will be the last day service will be offered.   302 Pets and For the Love of Dogs are two local services that appear to provide a comparable, high quality service. 

Please reach out if we are holding a key in the office.


With deepest appreciation for the opportunity to serve your pets,


Heather Deschambeau
