“Mark takes care of my dogs when ever I am out of town he is always great with them sends plenty of pics and he cleans up makes sure they get thier daily exercise and gives my Epileptic dog his medication”
“I booked Amy a couple of months in advance of the trip I was taking. She was very patient and helpful when it came to figuring out the logistics of the booking. I chose Amy because of her bio in how she states routine is important to our animals. As a caregiver for cats herself, she was very agile in learning the methodology I used for my own cat and followed instructions very well. Of course she also made sure to show love in her own way with my little guy and mix it up with him so he wouldn’t be bored. Each time I would check in for a couple minutes through my security system while Amy was there, she was always respectful, caring, and inquisitive as to how to interact with Kyo the best. She also took care to respect the space she was in and treat my home as a well mannered guest would and arrived a couple of minutes early for each drop in. I would absolutely book her again and I’m very thankful for the time she spent with my fur ball.”
“Deanna is fantastic! She’s friendly, conscientious, and committed to taking care of every pet. She goes above and beyond.”
“Liz is the best dog sitter I have ever had. She is incredibly loving and attentive to my dog, and she always goes above and beyond to make sure he is happy and well-cared for. Liz is my neighbor, and I asked her to watch my dog while I was on vacation. She asked me all sorts of questions about my dog's personality, routine, and any special needs he had. She sent me daily updates with photos and videos of my dog, and she always responded to my texts and calls promptly. When I returned home from my vacation, my dog was happy and healthy. I would certainly recommend Liz as a dog walker or sitter, as she is great with animals and and very responsible.”
“Rebecca was amazing with our 3 dogs and 1 cat while we were away. She sent great updates and photos every time which made us feel at ease about being away from our babies on vacation. Highly recommend her. We will definitely rely on her again.”
About: I have had dogs all my life. Primarily, I grew up with bigger dogs but I love smaller dogs just as much. I currently have a cat at home and know how to keep little kitties entertained. I am currently free during the week I will dedicate time to take care of your furry friends. I am also free on the weekends before 7pm I have a huge field right next to my apartment complex. Your furry friends and and I can spend some time out there or go to the park!
“Very helpful. Went above and beyond for me and my pupper dog, Elwood.”
“Courtney is an amazing caregiver - as evidenced by her nursing career as well as her love for animals. She can provide the basics and medication distribution. But her care also goes above and beyond in small ways, like checking to make sure the pavement isn't too hot during walks. 10/10 recommend her services for your loved one because she'll treat your pets like her own family.”
“Whitney is one of the most reliable and compassionate pet sitters I have ever known. She truly shows my dog Molly so much love when she watches her. It has been wonderful to find someone that I can trust so completely to care and love on my pets.”
“This is my first time to use Rover. I was very impressed with Katie. She had told me in advance what she would do and followed through with her promises. I received pictures and text communication about the pets. I found in the pictures that the animals learn to love her pretty quickly. After the first day, I became relaxed enough to enjoy my time away. I can’t wait to use Katie again for my next trip away. I definitely recommend her.”
“Gen was great! The boys really liked her and she took great care of them. She was very communicative which we appreciated and took great pictures of the kitties. She posted wonderful cards also! Thank you Gen!”
“Clare did a great job providing a drop-in visit for my dog. She was great with communication and showing him lots of love and attention. I would definitely recommend her services and hope to use her again soon!”
About: I have grown up and around pets my entire life, and have had two pets of my own! I have a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever currently. He is a 3 year old fabulous and sweet boy and we are obsessed with him! He does struggle with reactivity, which makes me versed in caring for dogs with anxiety and knowing when and how to avoid certain triggers to keep pets feeling safe and respected. I had a cat named Lemon for 8 years. She passed away from cancer at the age of 8, but I simply adored her and because of her have a lot of experience in caring for cats, and cats with illnesses. We had cats, dogs, lizards, birds, snakes, and bunnies growing up, so I definitely understand that animals = family. I have experience caring for senior pets and puppies/kittens. I have experience with animals with chronic illnesses and animals that require medications. Our family Lab (Stella) and Weimaraner (CJ) lived into old age (13-14 years old) and required medications and fair amount of assistance toward the ends of their long and beautiful lives. I am open to whatever your pets may need, but also am forward and honest in that I understand my limitations. I would never put them in an unsafe situation or one that I did not feel I was the best person to manage! I currently work full-time in healthcare, but typically have time on evenings and weekends to help care for pets on rover. I love walks and cuddles! I have a fully fenced in yard, and understand the importance of keeping our fur babies safe and contained. I am familiar with many different harness and leash styles and am able to crate in your home if needed!
“Frances took excellent care of my cat Louis XIV when I had to go out of town for a family emergency for a few days. I chose her because I knew she had years of experience taking care of cats and because Louis has feline leukemia and needed extra love and care. I had never left Louis with a sitter before, but Frances was wonderful, patient, understood all of Louis’ needs, and I will certainly hire her again the next time I am unable to stay with him. I do really recommend Frances for your cats, and best of luck to you Frances with your pet sitting career —Maryanne”
About: I've taken care of pets since as long as I can remember. I grew up with always having a dog and cat, which I helped take care of, as well as being asked to watch and take care of family and neighbors pets as well. I enjoy going on walks as well as just cuddling and playing with animals. I'm currently in school, where I have flexibility in my schedule throughout the week with a lot of it being online, so it will be easy for me to pop in and out of places, as well as time to walk and take care of your pets as well. I currently have no pets with me up at school, as I live with my friend, but am more than willing to help you out in any way I can with taking care of your pet, whether that be by playing, walking, taking in & out, or whatever help you need to make your days easier!
“Me & my fur babies LOVE Fayth…She is very responsible, She give my dogs Great care..Don’t know what I would do without her..A life saver.. Glad I found this agency..”
“Stephanie was so great to work with! She came to our house and checked in on Gus while we were out of town for the weekend. She made sure he had food and water, played with him in the yard and took him on walks. She sent pics and nice texts with every visit, which my kids especially enjoyed. She is very quick to respond to messages. Will definitely use her again!”
About: I understand that for many people their fur babies are their babies. I myself have been a cat mom since I was 10 years old when I adopted two farm kittens who lived a long spoiled life and 100% owned my me. Since my first cats Rocky and Ginger, I have owned a beta fish, who lived many years and survived multiple moves; a goldfish who just had his one year birthday this month, another cat, Dora, that was rehomed to me after her former owner's son was allergic. Dora was my sweet heart, I miss her everyday. She passed while I was pregnant with my daughter and it was devastating. I also have fostered and help find forever homes for animals. My current fur baby, Mr. Fluffy Butt, chose me when my daughter was 1. I came home from work in July 2021 and I found a little black fluffy kitten meowing furiously by our recycle can and he quickly stole our hearts. He is currently 2, my hooman toddler 3, and I swear the two of them are in cahoots to cause as much mischief as possible. I started pet sitting for others when I was a teenager. This was anything from going over to a neighbor or friends house to feed a cat, clean liter box, and spend some time with it, to letting a dog out when a friend was tied up or even staying the night and sleeping in a clients home with the dogs and cats laying on or near me. I am a cat lady at heart, but I love dogs too, especially big dogs. I think snakes are cool and am comfortable taking care of them as well. I can care for dogs, cats, fish, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits/bunnies, guinea pigs, snacks, lizards, turtles, birds, and ferrets. Some animals I am open to bringing to my home, others I am not. Please ask and I will do my best to accommodate. I have the ability to keep my cat separate from your animal if needed. I have given dogs and cats medicine in shot and pill form. I understand need to make sure medicine and fluids are given at a specific time and will not accept caring for your pet unless I am 100% sure I can be there at the time they need their meds and that I can properly give them the medication. I don't mind dogs jumping on me, and will gladly play fetch or tug of war with them. I will not provide any toy, food, bone without your knowledge and consent. I know some bones and toys are dangerous to certain types of doggies and kitties. If I'm over at your house and your not going to be home for awhile, I will even water your plants and collect your mail. I'm currently working part-time in healthcare with no specifically set hours. I am a Registered Dietitian with a private practice, and I consult for a local acute care facility as well as health and wellness events. As a result, my schedule is not set in stone, it's driven by my clients needs and frequency of patient consults. This is a benefit to you because I can schedule your preferred date and time and then schedule when I visit my acute care facility and office around that. I work from home at times as well, and if your alright with me working in your home too, I can often bring my work with me. I could round out my income with taking on more hours in healthcare, but I would much rather be taking care of your fur babies! I will care for pets exactly to the letter of how you want them cared for. If you want the TV on, lights on, and thermostat set at a specific temperature for your dog while they are home alone, I will triple check it's like that before I leave and immediately upon arrival. I will look for any safety concerns every visit, and contact you immediately if an emergency arises. You will be provided with multiple ways to get ahold of me so as to put your mind at ease. My cats have always been indoor cats but I have cared for outdoor cats and indoor/outdoor cats as well. My cat has all of his claws, so I am use to getting scratched at times. I understand kitties scratch and bite and that 99% of the time that is the humans fault not theirs. My animals always have fresh water available and are given a combination of dry and wet food with occasional treats. Fish tanks are cleaned regularly. My kitty has pretty much every version of scratch posts but naturally prefers my couch and carpet. I am comfortable trimming cats nails. I do not have experience clipping dog nails. I am willing to learn this any other unique care need for your animal. I do brush my cats teeth, and keep him up to date with shots and anti-flea / tick medicine. I believe in spaying and neutering animals and all of mine have been so. My animals are also all chipped to make sure if they do get lost I can find them as soon as possible. When I was in college, I left a Halloween celebration I had looked forward to for weeks, to drive two hours home to start an immediate search for my big orange kitty that my parents told me was missing and had been unsuccessful finding themselves. I knocked on doors and requested permission to search yards until I found him about five houses away. In the event, your animal does get out, I will not hesitate to notify you immediately as well as start searching immediately. Knock on wood, I have never had an animal escape under my care. I will of course call your veterinarian in the event of an emergency or specific care needs for your animal. Finally, I absolutely will get up any time of night or day to take your animal to the 24/7 emergency vet for immediate emergency care if needed. I understand from first hand experience the urgency of moving an animal as fast as possible to expert medical care.
“Paige really cares for animals, she's done a lot of research for every pet she's ever had to ensure that they will be happy and healthy. She has a dog that she sends me pictures of all the time and he always looks so happy.”
About: I’ve had my dog Chewbacca, a small Maltese/Shi Tzu, for 5 years and he’s the light of my life. I’ve had my son Atlas for a little over a year now; he’s the grey tiger stripe d tabby in the pictures. The cat distribution system has also blessed our house with a 4 year old female longhair foster named Chloe who is very comfortable here and always will be but might still need her human.. I’m have my own consulting business and have ample spare time to dedicate to caring for your fur babies. I have a very flexible routine so please feel free to make last minute requests but please also be understanding if I am unable to respond right away. I will strive to provide a stress free and safe environment and enrichment for your family. I have a bodycam and can record and send a video of all interactions for verifiable trust. If clients are interested I can also mount a point of view camera to your pets collar or harness for a special day in the life video of your pals.
