Thankful. Appreciative. Honored. Grateful.

I use all of these words, and yet none come close to expressing how I feel about the love and respect I have received from my clients and their babies over the last 8 years.

It all started with one client and her family who changed my life forever! ๐Ÿฅฐ
They believed in me, trusted me, and let me be a part of their lives. Not just with their pets but truly as a friend and family member.

The relationship that grew with this family set the path and the bar for how I would run my animal care business. I would thank them publicly, but I respect privacy and won't tag them here.

My time running Animal Duties was mostly wonderful experiences.
Darling animals with beautiful souls, clients with gracious and generous hearts, exceptionally beautiful days spent out doors, and knowing I was able to be and do more than I ever thought I could!

Physically and mentally, this job changed me and has helped me grow into who I am today.

But also over those 8 years my body has taken its toll from this job. From a broken foot (30 days after opening), to broken teeth, torn ligaments, to spinal compressions and so much more.
So when I needed up in the ER again one day last month, I knew it was time to start reconsidering what I need to do as a career.

It is truly heartbreaking that I am moving on from such a tremendous job and all of my fabulous clients and their babies. My clients may not know it, but they made one woman's small dream come true, for just a short amount of time, but it was worth every second and I would do it all over again.โค

Service will end at 5pm today for the very last time.

I love you all, I will truly miss your babies, and I thank you for everything you've done for me and my business over the years.

Lots of love,
Krista Hawk
Owner of Animal Duties

Dear Animal Duties Family,

I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your continued support of my pet sitting business over the last seven and a half years.

It has been my pleasure and an honor to have served and cared for the wonderful pets of Lovettsville and their families.

My goals have been to provide loving, professional care for your pets. I hope that I have made them as happy as they have made me over the years.

However, life circumstances have led me to the difficult decision to close this chapter and close Animal Duties. I'll be ending all service on Friday August 25, 2023 after 5pm.

This is something that breaks my heart. ๐Ÿ’”

However, sometimes the universe and your body tell you that it's not time to "give up" but is time to evolve.

I love each and every one of you and your pets. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me, Animal Duties, and for my family.

Over the next few weeks, keys and any personal pet items will be returned to you. Please be patient as I do my best to reach all of you in a timely manner.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions concerning your accounts.

Eternal gratitude and much love,
Krista Hawk Mayorga

"The AirNow guidelines recommend keeping pets indoors as much as possible and avoiding strenuous exercise like running. If your pet needs to go outside to go to the bathroom, make it as quick as possible. That means you should skip your usual walk during unhealthy and hazardous air quality conditions, and bring outdoor pets inside."
