Ann was wonderful with our dog and birds. She gave us daily updates and took care of our babies as they were hers. We felt at peace on our vacation since we received daily updates. We are so glad we found her!

I am currently pet sitting full time so I have a flexible schedule to meet your needs and can book on short notice in the case of emergencies. I respect and adhere to every owners desires in the care of their fur family to ensure their safety and happiness during my time with them.

Jon house sat our old almost 17 yr old dog!! He was so attentive and caring to our Buddy! I cannot say enough amazing things about Jon. If you are looking for someone to care for your special animal do not hesitate!! Book Jon!! He came over and stayed with our dog to make sure he was always OK. He would stay later just because he was concerned. He would walk him around and even our neighbors told us how caring he was to our dog. Thank you again Jon. If you are thinking, stop and book Jon. You will not be disappointed!! He also has vet tech experience, which really made us more comfortable too.

Sara stayed with our motley crew of critters while we went away for a long weekend. They’re somewhat high maintenance and I left feeling confident they’d be well cared for. Sara provided updates whenever asked and everyone was happy and healthy upon our return! Thanks Sara!

What a wonderful experience we had with Sheila for our two week trip to India. We had always had family take care of our animals, so it was a first for us to use a a live-in service. Sheila was proactive and timely with communications before, during and after our trip. She asked all the right questions- the ones that let you know she is thinking of the important details. She adapted to our animals specific needs, like our chihuahua that likes to sleep close at night. Sheila learned about goat care quickly and sent fun pictures of her time with them. Her photo and text updates were so nice and made me feel so at ease. She wasn’t afraid to ask questions, or bring up a concern that might help make her stay easier for the animals and herself. Sheila is the kind of person who will figure out, what needs to be figured out! We came back to a home that was cleaner than when we left, and our animals felt peaceful and happy. I would highly recommend Shelia!

We LOVED having Megan come watch our pup! She was always letting us know what was going on. Even sent us photos! My dog is highly anxious and took her a bit to warm up but by time she was done they were besties! We are so thankful for her and can’t wait to see her again soon!!

Karli is AMAZING with pet care and I would put my total trust in my cat's safety with her. It's funny - I think sometimes my cat likes her more than me...she's always so happy when Karli hangs out with her. She's a lover of all animals, and has experience with cats and dogs, but also farm animals (goats, horses, peacocks, llamas, chickens) due to her previous work experience working at a children's petting farm. That girl would put herself through anything to care for the animals around here. You're doing yourself a favor booking with her.

About: I am experienced in caring for many types of pets, including dogs, cats, some exotic pets, and most small animals! I have two cats myself and have always loved caring for animals. I’m going to school at NIU for Child Development. Although I am a full-time student, I am available daily before and after classes! I am available for drop in visits, house sitting, and possible boarding depending on the situation. I’m excited to hear from you :) I am available to watch animals in your home, and occasionally in my home. I live in an apartment and therefore can only accept small animals for boarding.
