  Worry about your pet when you travel?

What if the pet sitter forgets to feed my iguana? What if my sister's car breaks down and she can't make it? What if the neighbor boy stays out late and doesn't get there in time to feed the baby birds?

Never have these questions again with a new web service,™ sends a reminder (coordinate schedules), do a checkIN (know when the pet sitter arrived) and a checkOUT (how long did they spend with your pets?) , and you will be notified that all is well. If the worse happens, no one arrives to care for your pet(s), your back-up plan will be activated. And you'll know about this too... Check it out at:

Use the promo code: NPX31XEP1A and Critter Camp will receive 5% of your total purchase. Your pet's safety and security is guaranteed AND Critter Camp's exotic pets receive a donation- what a great deal!
