Pet Sitters

While there are many options for caring for your pet while you’re away, pet sitting is the best option. Your pet stays in familiar surroundings and can keep their routine. Compared to boarding, the experience is more personal.

For cats, who don’t always handle change well, it’s a perfect fit. Whether you want me to keep them company all day or stop by to give them some TLC, they’ll feel confident.

House-sitting can deter theft and ensure your home is cared for while you’re away.

I’m passionate about animals–I want to make your pal as happy and comfortable as possible. I want the best for your pet, even if that isn’t me. That’s why I always meet with you and your pet (free of charge) before agreeing to sit for you–to make sure your pal likes me!
 
I’m insured, licensed, and trained in pet first aid and CPR. Looking for someone with real special needs pet experience? Your search is over.
 
I meet your pet where they are. In most cases, I work with special needs pets at little to no extra cost. I know pet care often isn’t always puppy cuddle time. I’m prepared to help with not only the fun parts of caring for your pets but the nitty-gritty, too.
 
As for our relationship, I make sure to keep you connected. I send at least one update per day with tons of photos so you always know what we’re up to. I’m always available for questions and I’m always happy to take pet videos when you’re missing your pal.
 
Your satisfaction is very important to me, which is why I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Not satisfied? Let me know for a full refund.
 
I’m here for all your pet’s needs. Whether your pal needs cuddles and pets or someone to clean up accidents and sit with them through separation anxiety–I’m here for them.

I’m open to any pet, and prepared to do research beforehand to prepare! I have experience with dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, reptiles, and birds.

I do! Depending on the intensity of your pet’s condition, I’m happy to work with them. As always, I’ll schedule a free meet and greet with you to ensure it’s a good fit.
 
I’m experienced administering medications, and with special needs and senior pets.

I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee for all services. Unhappy with your service? Give me a call for a refund!
 
I’ll do my best to prevent issues in the future, and you’re always welcome to come back, even if you’ve asked for a refund. If our service isn’t up to par, you shouldn’t pay.
I’ll discuss this in detail with you at our meet and greet, as it varies between pets. I’ll need information about your pet’s routine, medical issues, vet, and an emergency contact.
 
I will also need a key or code to enter your home.

Please contact me as soon as you’re aware you’ll need pet sitting to ensure availability. But, if you’re in need of short-notice pet sitting feel free to contact me as I may be able to accommodate you.

Please ensure that there is enough food, cat litter, and treats to last the visit. If you’re running low and don’t have time to buy more, please leave cash so I can buy supplies.
 
If your cat requires medication, ensure there is enough of it. For medications that need measuring, please have tools available with the amount noted.
 
I appreciate cleaning supplies in case of any accidents.

I prefer to schedule one visit per day. But, in some situations, I’m willing to do up to two visits per day, so don’t hesitate to reach out.

I will collect a key during our meet and greet. When I leave, I will either hide the key on your property, put it in a lock box or, I can visit to drop the key off for a fee.

Yes, though an extra fee applies because of the demand.

Payment

You may view my rates and fees on my services page. If you have any questions or would like an estimate feel free to contact me!

I require full payment before the date of the service. I can accept major credit cards, PayPal, Venmo, as well as cash and check. I use Time to Pet to manage billing.

For holiday bookings, I require a 50% upfront deposit due to the demand.

Full refund is granted if you cancel by noon one week before the service.

50% refunded if you cancel after noon one week before the service.

No exceptions.

Emergencies

In case of a pet emergency, I will make every effort to contact you or your emergency contact immediately. In the case that I can’t reach either, I will use my best judgment or seek the advice of a vet when possible. I will take your pet to a vet or provide other recommended care.
 
You can rest easy knowing I’m certified in pet first aid and CPR should anything happen.
 
I’m happy to follow an emergency protocol if you leave one for me.
 
If I need to take your pet to the vet, I will record the visit and stay in contact with you at all times.

Yes! I’m insured through Pet Sitters Associates and licensed in the state of Washington.

Unfortunately, sometimes there are emergencies outside of our control. In inclement weather or in a natural disaster, I will make every effort to reach your pet. I will attempt to evacuate them, care for them and/or ensure they are okay as appropriate. However, I can make no guarantees about their care in such an emergency.
