“Always great to know your pets are cared for! It’s a great peace of mind. Robert always lets us know how the cats are doing and gives them lots of love!”
“Jenevieve totally saved our vacation! I had originally hired another Rover sitter to drop in on our dog while we were on vacation. The other sitter didn't show up for 2 visits. Luckily I was able to book super last minute with Jenevieve and she is awesome! She was always there on time to take care of my dog. He is 15 and takes heart meds, so it's important that he gets them twice a day. She seemed to really care for my dog and sent pictures every visit. I was totally impressed with her attention to his care. If you are looking for a great sitter, look no further!”
“Ash was amazing with our pets while we were gone on vacation for a week! She took excellent care of our old fur babies and gave sufficient updates/photos. She was also very accommodating when one of our dogs needed medications while we were gone and didn’t know until last minute! We will definitely have Ash watch our pets again in the future! Thank you!!”
“Vivian took exceptional care of our fur babies while we were gone for a long vacation! She took the time to bond and play with our cats and sent us detailed updates with pictures. We had great peace of mind knowing they were in her care! She was super accommodating as well and even watered our flowers and filled plant humidifiers daily! Definitely recommend her services!”
“Kent is awesome! Would highly recommend! He walks my dog Monday-Thursday every week. Kind, trustworthy, reliable, and very good with my dog!”
“Yolanda is the sweetest! Our dog & cat both love her! She goes the extra mile for sure, and we really appreciate her! Thank you Yolanda!?❤️”

“Caitlin and Jonathan did a great job taking care of Wriggles. Hopefully they will be able to help us out in the future.”
“Karla was wonderful! She left great feedback each day coupled with photos of both our cats. She also went above and beyond and did extra things that we asked about (eg, heat/ac) and swept the main living area to clean up litter and cat hair. Would recommend Karla in a heartbeat!”
“Has always had and taken the best care of pets of her own and taken care of friends and families, i would trust her 110% with my pets!”
“Was so great squeezing us in last minute, went right over and let the dogs out. They had a blast with her, and she even messaged to get a towel to wipe their paws since it was wet out! Thank you!!!”
About: •••Please THOROUGHLY read my profile- and the specifics about the service you are requesting- before booking, thank you!••• Allow me and your beloved pet/s to keep each other company! No pets of my own to interfere with yours, and no toxic plants in my collection when boarding in my home. I've cat and dog sat for numerous friends and family members over the years, & have been around many different kinds of animals since birth. I have compassion for animals and pets and will spoil yours as if he or she is my own! I have experience feeding, watering, walking, playing, and have also cared for animals requiring special diets, special care, medications including injections, and more. I've worked with dogs in training classes as well, so if you are currently training your pet I will continue with your training in your absence. When you have to be away from your pet, I'm your person! °°°Due to time & travel spent on Meet and Greets, gas expenses, the risk of the MnG not leading to a booking, failed MnGs, etcetera--- initial, in-person MnGs will be recognized as a service rendered and require a non- refundable compensation of $20, paid at the time of the MnG. This is reserved solely for NEW clients that wish to see me in person/in their home and is unnecessary for repeat clients and remote MnGs (such as cats and other small animals...). I ABSOLUTELY require an in-person MnG for any and all DOGS)!°°° °°Further compensation for special needs pets/quirks/risks/medication administration/etc. may be assessed. This depends on the extra attention and cares needed and subsequently provided by me, and will be modified/reflected in the final price after discussing with you!°° °My posted rates do not include fees automatically taken out by Rover© for each service (a WHOPPING 20%!- I am happy to share what you pay in total versus what I actually receive). ⬆️⬆️⬆️Therefore, reviews &/or tips for services & stays that you are pleased with are HIGHLY encouraged and appreciated!° I am currently available to care for your pet/s mornings, evenings, nights, overnights, weekends, and/or holidays. If you are within 20-25 minutes from my workplace, I will also be able to break him/her/them midday on my lunch break! I look forward to caring for your loved ones!!! Although I live in a loft, I DO have access to a small, fenced-in dog park area wherein your pet can safely run and stretch his/her legs (when I am "active" for boarding services in my home, that is!...).

“Jessica did a great job with our dogs! They love to give kisses and play ball and she accommodated that well. Will definitely be using Jessica again!”
“Priscilla loves dogs and happy helped us raise our litter of Great Pyrenees/Red Bone Coon Hound puppies. She was helpful in setting up our puppy area and keeping it clean. She came and helped me keep the puppies and Mom on their feeding schedule and did all our other chores as well. She lives her own animals and is very positive person.”
“Kiara did an amazing job with our kitties while we were away for a few days. She was an excellent communicator, kind and very easy to work with, and our cats took to her immediately (even our suspicious younger one!). We have an older cat with some medical needs and Kiara put our minds fully at ease with her extensive experience fostering and caring for numerous animals. I would highly recommend her!”
“Kim is a very kind and attentive pet caregiver. She loves all animals and will go above and beyond for any animal. Any pet would be lucky to have her.”
“If I could leave 10 Stars for Jessica, I would! We have two cats that are 6 1/2 years old. Up until a few weeks ago, they were healthy cats. Unfortunately one of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes 3 weeks before we left on our 11 day trip. We had to begin injecting insulin twice a day. Less than a week before we were leaving; tests showed that her blood sugar had not dropped and we would need to double the insulin dosage twice a day, BUT this required her eating a minimum amount of food before receiving the injections. Jessica handled the situation like a pro! Our cats have always been "nibblers throughout the day" on dry food that was available to them. We had to change the food that the diabetic cat was eating and give the other cat the old food. We left Jessica with a very complicated feeding & injection situation that we didn't have time to perfect before we left. We left her with new prescription food we had gotten from the vet the day before we left so we had no idea if she would eat or handle it well. Jessica would sometimes be at the house for over 45 min coaxing the diabetic cat with different mixtures of food so she could give her the injection. She cleaned the litter box twice a day, give them fresh water, and love each time she was here. She even shared details that she read on the internet about a diabetic cat and shared that information with me. She sometimes had to try 3 or 4 different food combinations to get her to eat before the injection. She also had to make tough judgement decisions on how much insulin to give her if she wasn't eating well. Whew - very stressful and we sure wish she wouldn't of have to handle that, but she always made the right decision when I read her notes. Jessica's communication was so detailed and through for each visit. She would tell us what she would eat or if she vomited or send us funny pictures to ease our worries. I looked forward to her updates twice a day. Our minds were eased and we were able to relax during our time away to know that we left our pets in very responsible, compassionate hands! Jessica went above and beyond in her responsibility to us and Rover. I highly recommend Jessica for the care of pets.”
“Aurora did a great job! She was timely and sent us pictures during her visit!”
