Fido’s Friend: Perham woman goes barking up a new tree

Email News Alerts

Perham area pet owners now have a reliable person to call to watch over their four-legged friends while they’re away.

Long-time animal lover Sheila Jacobson has started a new pet-sitting business, Fido’s Friend. For a reasonable fee, the Perham woman will stop in to a client’s home to visit with, feed, walk, and play with the dogs, cats or other animals on site.


This way the pets are cared for on their own turf, without being taken out of their usual routine.
