I am having a
"Welcome to Summer" Sale
through the end of July
First time talks with a pet, the Initial Consultation, are now 30% off! That's $60 instead of $90 for that first hour.
All other rates remain. (Hourly / follow-up / ongoing are $60/hr. Foster/Rescue rates are $55/hr.)
You need to purchase AND use the time within the sale period. With past Sales I've had, it was just buying the time, so plan ahead on this one!
This does not apply to Gift Certificates or buying someone some Consult time. This is designed especially for YOU to get for your own pet(s) and within a certain time frame. This is truly just a WELCOME for those Aunt Julie newbies ~ new additions to your household, and/or that pet you've skipped over and over, figuring you'd get around to them "sometime". Well, "sometime" is here for them now! Yay!
This does not affect any monies or credit "on account" from payments, earlier sales or discounts, etc. This is from this point forward and applies to your buying an Initial Consult for a new pet or a new-to-Aunt Julie pet and the service must be delivered within the sale time frame as well.
Sale ends midnight the last day of July. (Midnight Saturday the 31st of July 2010)
I FINALLY ACQUIRED THE PETCOMM.COM DOMAIN NAME! I'd been trying to get that for some years and whoever owned it before was holding onto it but not using it. They finally released it and I bought it and I own it for 10 years (on an ongoing basis - I'll renew as necessary), the current maximum on how long one can purchase a domain name for.
Why do you care?
"Dot com" is the most familiar domain name buzzword around. You can remember my site's "address" easier! for yourself and for referrals.
Based on the above, when you think of Aunt Julie but forget that my site is a "dot net", you might type in petcomm.com. Makes sense, right? In the past, you would not have gotten my site. Now you will!
Petcomm dot comm SOUNDS LIKE "comm" like Communicator. It also sounds cool to say just because it does..... pet comm dot comm. Whee!
Either/both addresses are the same site. That is, petcomm.net and petcomm.com are the same. One just points to the other.
Update your records and bookmarks or don't, it's no matter - you'll find my site either way! But do remember petcomm.com (as well as petcomm.net) in case it comes up.
Yes, I'll be adding this onto my business cards and so on, but what you have is still valid and remains so!
NOTE As of January 1, 2006, I no longer take on Lost/Missing Pets. For awhile I tried an experiment of just doing ONE Initial Consultation regarding the subject but after 4 different times (2 with existing clients and 2 with new clients who pleaded with me to try it), things turned out exactly the same (variations on a theme).
This applies to any existing clients or those just now coming onboard. Existing clients please contact me about this IF the need arises; I will need to go over some things with you.
I am (truly) sorry if this creates any upset.
This decision is made is a result of countless hours of doing this kind of communication. I have provided a page on Lost and Missing Pets on my site which you can read if you'd like. I actually highly recommend doing so. It may be of use to you as there are some ideas and tips. As a matter of fact, I received an email recently from someone I did not even know who read that page and had good success getting their pets back, just from applying one of the tips on the page. The page does also go into more detail about why I am no longer taking on new missing/lost pet clients so that if/when you find someone who will, you can have a better idea of how things might go, and, so that you can better understand my outlook on things.
The answer truly is....No, I won't do it.
If you are not already an Aunt Julie client, please do contact me for comm with your pet (living or passed over) for any other basis than finding or recovering a lost or missing pet.
Note to existing clients:
If your info has changed at all, please email me and bring me up-to-date. This includes new address, new tel number, new cell number, new work number, (AND if the old ones are still valid or not.) Also, any pet "news", definitely new or changed email addresses, and anything else like that. You'd be surprised at how many people forget to pass along some key detail which affects my being able to get ahold of them. Thank you!
For those of you who were going to write a Testimonial for my site and just never got around to it...now's a good time! I'm putting this note on this page as I assume you're here to acquire more Consult time with Aunt Julie so it was a good place to catch your eye with this note. NOTE I'm always looking for Testimonials on Multiple Pet households as people tend to forget what it was like "before"...and other people will benefit from this service but perhaps no idea what changes are possible!
I try to do all I can to accomodate and best service you and it really helps me and others to have Testimonials to read - YOUR story - but I can't write it as well as you can! I fit you in....can you fit me in?
Just email it to me like any other email and I'll take it from there. Thanks!
From an Aussie news article I read at the time:
"He boasted that all the money he earned was spent on wildlife and it appears to be true. He lived in a modest bungalow and spent millions buying up areas of wilderness for parks. His commitment to animals was absolute and recently he received a lot of flak for his perceived role in having crocodile hunting banned.
His empire poured money back into film productions, his Australia Zoo and property purchases. He had conservation projects in Fiji, Vanuatu and the US, and was continually buying tracts of land to reinstate endangered fauna. Estimates are of more than 24,300ha of conservation property in Australia.
He also had a dream to buy a Queensland island to restore a couple of endangered species, including Sumatran tigers.
"The Croc Hunter's about wildlife, conservation, saving wilderness areas, jumping on crocs, it's all about very positive things," he said. "And I firmly believe our success is not only helping wilderness and wildlife, it's helping humanity. The Croc Hunter's all about saving the world, it really is."
