About the Pet Sitter

Shirley Huntley has been a pet lover her entire life which includes owning dogs, cats, gerbils, a guinea pig, a parakeet, fish and quail hatched from eggs.  Her love of animals led to a pet sitting job working for Gil Fredricks, the original founder of Chores For You, in 1989.  After Gil retired, Shirley and her husband Kurt bought the business in 1996 and have owned and operated it since performing as many as 4,000 house calls in a single year.

IMG_2412__2_.jpg"Auntie Shirley", as she is known to many of her clients, both two and four legged, takes pride in providing the same care and compassion that your pets are used to from you.  She treats your pets as if they were her own.  Special requests and routines are not a problem for Shirley.  Past experiences have included cooking steamed rice and vegetables for "vegetarian cats", serving frozen zucchini to fish, deboning cooked rabbit for a dog whose owner said that it was all that it would eat, feeding live crickets to two bearded dragons and feeding a large tarantula.  

Shirley has lived, worked and been active in the Ahwatukee community since 1987 including volunteer work and booth sponsorship for the Foothills Festival of Lights, volunteer delivery of donated pet food for the Guadalupe Community Action Program (CAP), bulk food delivery for the Arizona Foodshare program and support of the Arizona Humane Society.    
Shirley and Chores For You have been featured in articles in the Arizona Republic (10/24/1997) and also the September 1997 edition of the Foothills Magazine.
