Jonesville Animal Hospital

Newberry Animal Hospital

"I have known Chuck and his company Daytime Dogs and Friends for a number of years now. It is really awesome to see the owner of a small business care so much about the community and the service he provides. In this world of so much consolidation to create large corporate entities, it is refreshing to see a local business that can be trusted with such an important part of many families, their pets. Keep up the great work Chuck!!!"

Haile Plantation Animal Clinic

"I first met Chuck Siegel, owner of Daytime Dogs and Friends, many years ago when he attended a fundraiser for my non-profit, Haile's Angels Pet Rescue. I am certain that he chose to take care of pets as his life's work because he truly loves what he does.  He has tremendous compassion for animals and also for people. He is dependable without question and takes care of his client's pets as if they were his own. He is dedicated not only to caring for your pet but also to giving back to the community by helping rescue animals find their 'people' family. So give him a call so you can truly enjoy your vacation knowing that your pets are safe and happy!"

Paws on Parole

"People who have pets in their life are extra special. There is a certain love and compassion that a pet owner has for their pets and life. I make it one of my missions in life to surround myself with those types of people. One of those people is Chuck Siegel, Owner/Founder of Gainesville’s own Daytime Dogs and Friends. We met each other at one of my second homes, Earth Pets Natural Pet Market. Guy introduced us many years ago. Since then I have watched his business take shape and grow.  Chuck has a intense passion for what he does. When it comes to the animals, it takes tender loving care every minute of every day. Chuck and his staff pride themselves in this. Just another reason why I love Chuck Siegel. Chuck does not stop there. He loves to help promote and support animal welfare in our community. Paws on Parole is proud to have Chuck's business, Daytime Dog and Friends, as a sponsor for our Prison and Jail program."
