A Pet Nanny Plus originally began as Animal Transportation Services in November 1995 by Ellen Holmes. Primarily the only service offered was pet transportation to local veterinarians, groomers, kennel, etc., but eventually expanded into professional pet care. In May 2001, it amalgamated with A Pet Nanny to become A Pet Nanny Plus and was purchased by Lillian Miller in May 2005.
APNP participates in a variety of charity functions each year. The main one would be our APNP calendar. We have been producing it for 15 years now, all profits from the sales go to help a variety of charities. We also support the Pet Trust Fund at the OVC, the Alzheimer Society of Canada, Cuddly Cats Rescue and Sanctuary, K9 Crusaders Animal Rescue and many more.
APNP is a proud member of Pet Sitters International as well as the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce.
