Pet Sitters

In-Home Pet Sitting

We've all had that sitter we absolutely adored. The sitter who caused us to shove our head behind the window curtain excited for their arrival, and who let us stay up way beyond our bed time dunking Oreos in a glass of milk. In-Home Pet Sitting is a great option with a sitter that meets those same criteria for your pet; especially if they experience separation anxiety or physical stress when placed in a kennel or boarding facility. Your pet will maintain their normal routine of being fed, given fresh water, exercised, administered medicine, and given play & cuddle time in the safety and comfort of their own home. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing their daily routine is not interrupted.  In-Home Care is available for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, turtles, and fish.
