I am so excited to introduce you to Sally Jensen! She is a long-time Polk City resident who has turned her love of animals into a full-time business! I give you my full endorsement, if you are looking for someone to watch your dog, cat, bird, or other small pet you will not be disappointed with Sally Jensen. Don’t forget to ask about the new customer $5 coupon!
VISITS: When you contract Sally to watch your furry friends she will check on your pets 2-3 times a day (your choice) and will spoil your pets with whatever you say they like best. Walk around the block? You bet! Throw a tennis ball endlessly? Sally will do it with joy! Brush your cat until they purr? Absolutely. Sally wants to love on your loved ones in the ways your pets love the best. Each visit is 30-minutes long and costs $15. All pet sitting occurs in your own home, no boarding.
Location, location, location! Sally does want to focus her business on Polk City but will travel throughout the metro, so if you know someone who is looking, please pass her information along!
BOOK NOW! She is already booking spots for the 2015 holidays so look at your calendar and give her a call to get things going. Sally offers a FREE in-person consultation to get to know you, your pets, and the best way to serve your family.
Check her out on Facebook for more information and CALL TODAY to set up an appointment.

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 there will be an election held in the North Polk School District to elect 2 candidates to the North Polk School Board. One of the candidates, Tim Krehbiel is an incumbent and the other two, David Potter and Joe Heintz would be new to the board upon election.
Last week I posted a series of questions for each of the candidates via email and each person was easy to reach, happy to answer and timely in their responses.
I usually post articles directly into the email to make things easier for readers but I hope you will forgive me this one time as the content of the Q & A is quite long and longer emails tend to turn up more often in Spam/Junk folders.
Please note: Polk City Square is neutral on all elections and provides this information as a service to the community to aid in the election process.
