About FC

Hello and thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit Franciscan Care on the web. On this site, you’ll be able to find out information about our services and what we love to do most here, which is take care of your trees and your pets.

On this page, we’ve included a little bit of background information about who we are and how we got started in this dual existence as a business.

Who we are

We are a company dedicated to providing residents of the Spokane, Washington area with high quality tree and pet care. For most of us here in Spokane, much of our life happens in the home. We’re interested in serving you with things that are most important to most people in domestic life – pets and property maintenance.

Our story

The beginning

Believe it or not, our story actually starts in Montana. Our company’s founder, Chris Robertson, rescued a cat that was stuck up in a tree. While this seems like a pretty insignificant event to influence the course of a person’s career, the rescue made a deep impression on Chris. As a fifth year senior in college and an avid lover of the outdoors and pets, dealing with a cat and a tree helped him realize that he could turn his passions into a life long career.

The takeoff

After this rescue, Chris immediately went to get a job working part time at an animal shelter. In order to make ends meet and keep himself afloat, he also started to do odd jobs with his uncle at a local tree service.

Time passed and Chris began to move up in both fields. However, he didn’t want to let either one go. As a result, he moved to Spokane with his partner and started Franciscan Care, a company which allowed him to have the best of both worlds.
