Pet Sitting

Pet Sitting

Pet sitting services for your horse, cat, dog, bird, ferret, bunny, or other animal allow your pet the familiarity and security of home. Your pet will get the undivided, loving attention of one pet sitter to provide fresh food and water, medications, playtime, potty breaks, clean litter, and anything else needed while you’re gone. We are also able to provide diabetic shots.

Your sitter can visit as many times a day as your pet needs. These visits can be used for walks, dog park visits, trail hikes, overnight stays, or transport to your dog’s favorite daycare.

We also give your home a “lived in” look by rotating lights and blinds, watering plants, bringing in newspaper and/or mail, taking out the trash, and even snow removal to comply with local ordinances. Communication with you can be ongoing throughout the service via text message, email, daily diary, or whatever mode is most convenient and least disruptive to you.

There is no additional cost for up to 3 pets unless caring for them would take more time.  Please contact Sara with questions or to set up a free consultation.
