"There truly aren't enough stars to rate Cara and Healing Hands Animal Care. I was referred to Cara because my dear kitty Bailey was approaching the end of her life, and I chose to allow her to transition naturally and I needed guidance and support. Cara couldn't have been more loving, gentle, knowledgeable, sensitive, and intuitive. She stayed with Bailey when I had to leave the house and provided frequent check-ins and updates (with photos), which gave me peace of mind while I had to teach. She offered me guidance and advice and everything she suggested was spot on. And she helped me to give my little girl the most loving, peaceful and perfect transition. I am so grateful to Cara and I would recommend her to anyone. She truly is gifted."

"Thank you Cara and Frank for your wonderful care of my animal family. Cara and Frank are loving, caring people with great animal energy. Extra special cheers for their expertise with my horses and my very old special needs dog. I was able to go away for a weekend and have fun with no worries. Cara also sent me pictures of my happy animals! Cara & Frank love what they do and it shows!!"

"Cara is an amazing person who delivers tremendously loving support during the difficult process of losing a beloved pet. Without her help during my dog's transition, I would have completely cracked. She responded immediately to my phone call for help, providing sane and gentle guidance. Arriving at our house within a very short time, her presence transported us into a space of total peace. She guided the final steps of my dog's dying process with such deep knowing and absolute assurance that all was well. I will always be grateful that she was there to share the experience with us. With Cara's loving, compassionate support, I was able to say farewell to our beloved dog without drowning in sorrow. The final moments with Chance were the best they could be because Cara was there with us. She is a gem.

"Cara and Frank are exactly the people you want caring for your pets. A great mix of professionalism, compassion, and attention to detail. They are just as concerned with our pets emotional needs as well as physical. Couldn't ask for more!"

What a gift it was to have Cara by my side as my kitty girl came to the end of her life. She helped me and my beloved furry companion through the final days and prepared a beautiful, moving ritual after the veterinarian left my house. Cara is so supportive, caring, sensitive, intuitive, insightful. I cannot say enough. Thank you Cara and Frank!

"When my dog, Katie, was diagnosed with cancer I began looking for someone who could help us make the best life possible for her as she coped with this disease. Cara DeLaRosa was that person. Since she and Frank have started their business I have used their services for dog sitting & walking, grooming and helping me cope with changes in Katie's condition. Their ability to connect with animals makes them an invaluable asset. Katie and I highly recommend Cara & Frank for the care of your pet."

"Cara and Frank are wonderful people and will take excellent care of your pets while you're away. They go well above and beyond the call to ensure your pets feel loved and taken care of. They spent extra time with my cats because they were a bit shy at first. It was so great not having to worry while I was out of the country. I highly recommend them!"
— Darin K., Rohnert Park, CA
“I always find it difficult to leave my animal family members in someone else's care, particularly my dog with anxiety difficulties. When a recent family trip had everyone out of the house, I felt that by leaving them with Cara and Frank I was leaving them in good hands. From the moment they walk through the door, you can see their quiet dedication to and affinity with the animals. From the dogs to the goats, they took the time to greet each animal and be sure they understood their individual needs and personalities.
In terms of practicalities, it was a straightforward pleasure to communicate and plan with them. I especially loved getting and adorable picture text while I was away, showing my dogs happy and relaxed at home!”
