Dallas’ Park Cities Pet Sitter Continues to Provide Pet Sitting Service Despite the City’s Virtual Shutdown Due to a Severe Ice and Snow Storm

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

The city of Dallas, Texas is virtually closed due to a severe cold front accompanied by freezing rain that arrived Thursday night. With the daily high temperatures not expected to go above freezing on Friday, and continued freezing rain in the forecast at least through Saturday, most area residents are bundled up indoors trying to wait out Mother Nature.

Many people attempting to travel in or out of Dallas are experiencing significant delays and trip cancellations due to the weather issues. The challenges that come from this type of extreme weather situation are the kind of emergency that Dallas-based Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. plans for every day of the year. Like the postman, Park Cities Pet Sitter must continue to service their clients despite the rain, sleet and snow, because there are pets that are relying on them solely for their food, water and bathroom breaks.

Park Cities Pet Sitter President, Joette White, says “We have clients that have both planned to be out of town right now, and those that are simply trying to return home, but can’t, due to the weather. Many are worried about their pets and their homes because they see how bad things look on television. It is times like this that the pet sitter’s job is even more crucial. When our sitters brave the elements to do each visit, they are also checking that our client’s homes have power, if there are downed tree limbs on their properties, and, of course, making sure the pets are fed and checked. The peace of mind we can provide our clients during times like this is invaluable to them.”

Park Cities Pet Sitter has set up their day-to-day business with multiple redundancies so that on days where electricity and cell phone service are down or are spotty, they can still provide the service their customers expect. Ms. White says, “We use a hosted voice mail system, email and cellular service to communicate with our sitters and clients all year round, so that if one of these key systems is down or is working sporadically, we can still communicate via the other channels. Likewise, we have electronic profiles of our clients and identical backup paper copies of them in case electricity is down and we need to have specific information about them or their pets. Likewise, our sitters have electronic access to their daily schedules, and are also directed to make paper copies of their schedules as well when we know inclement weather is coming and electricity could be compromised.”

Ms. White says that all of these system backups might appear tedious on a “normal” day, but are appreciated by both sitters and clients alike when Mother Nature impedes our regular ways of communication. “Park Cities Pet Sitter is a 365-day-a-year business caring for beloved family animals. Our sitters venture out into the roads and into bad weather on days when most people would choose to stay home, so we have to be sure we can communicate with each other and our clients despite the technology breakdowns that often occur with bad weather. Multiple backups in all important business areas are critical, because we have many people and their pets relying on us!”

Dallas’ weekend weather forecast currently calls for light, freezing drizzle through Saturday, with temperatures potentially increasing to above freezing on Sunday.

Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. has served the Dallas area 7 days a week, 365 days a year since 1992. Pet sitting, daily dog walks, pet taxis, overnight sitting, pet supply shopping, litter box cleaning and dog training are all services PCPSI offers. Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. is bonded and insured, and all sitters are employees--not independent contractors. A manager is on-call 24 hours a day to handle any emergencies.
