I had been in the hospital for 16 days with a serious illness when an angel named Wendy Derhak came into our lives and gave us the perfect solution for my beloved dog, “Henry.” I was no longer able to care for Henry as he deserved. Wendy found a loving family that had lost their dog, they were so happy to have my dear Henry and I was eternally grateful for the help I received from Wendy and her wonderful mission- The Pet Cottage. – Barbara Hoy June 22, 2019

Within only a few days, my customer’s cat was placed in a great home – a member of a business professional group that Wendy, myself and the foster all belong to. The cat has settled in well and should have a happy home life moving forward.


I wasn’t sure I was ready for full responsibility as a pet owner, but Wendy encouraged me to become a foster. Last October she found the perfect match…. two sweet cats named Simba and Smokey. Wendy was with me every step of the way: making sure I had all the supplies I needed, helping with vet visits, encouraging me, teaching me and being there to watch ” the boys” when I have to travel. Thanks to the Pet Cottage my home is not lonely anymore.


We needed to find a foster home for a sweet dog. Wendy stepped in and found the perfect foster mom. It felt so good to find a group of such loving and caring people right here in our area to bring peace of mind to anybody who may have difficulties taking care of their pet.


Thank you to the amazing team at The Pet Cottage. Adopting our new family member has been the best experience—better than we could have ever imagined.


When my Gracie passed, I could not exist without a dog in my life. Wendy guided me with the process of getting new dogs, Sadie and Riley, both Morkies. Living in a condo had its challenges Wendy helped to train both dogs. My son moved in, and Wendy successfully found a foster home for his cats in a week. Wendy knows what she’s doing and cares about matching animals with their new pet-parents.
