  • $10 REFERRAL DISCOUNT on the care of your pets, when you refer a customer to me. (Discount to be given after services are rendered and payment is received/cleared from referred customer.  One discount, per referred customer.)  Alternatively, I will gladly make a $10 donation in your honor, to a non-profit charity of your choice!
