About Our Pet Sitters
Our clients trust us for the care for their furry family members. We are a team of professional pet sitters, who are bonded and insured through Pet Sitters Associates. We take pride in getting to know your pets. The goal is to keep your pet's schedule as close to their normal routine as possible. We know it's already stressful for them to be without their family. Keeping them in their home helps reduce their stress level. As the years go by your pet really gets to know their sitter. We enjoy coming back into homes and seeing the animals remember us and greet us happily. We get to understand their language, what they want when they stand in the middle of the room barking or that the long, high pitch meow means the food bowl is only 3/4 full.
Our knowledge of pet care gives us the ability to care for any species of pet from rodents and pocket pets to companion animals and even horses and farm animals. We have the ability to medicate your pet and even give injections such as insulin and fluid therapy. We're also available for emergency sitting jobs as long as our schedules permit.
