“Josie was a great sitter and very knowledgeable about cat care. She is considerate, communicative, and punctual; exactly what we want in a pet sitter.”
“Hunter was communicative, considerate and receptive of my senior pets needs. He went above and beyond to leave my home better than he found it. Thank you Hunter!”
“Elizabeth watched our cat Chachi and she did an amazing job! He’s typically very shy but Elizabeth was so gentle and patient that he immediately warmed up to her. Having Elizabeth watch him gave us a really big sense of relief and made us feel safe leaving him knowing he was in such good hands. I can tell she really cared for him and enjoyed his company. I hope to always use Elizabeth when we’re out of town.”
“Alexandria was amazing with our cats. They were very well taken care of and she was great at communicating during our trip.”
“LUPE IS AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things here. Lupe was so responsive, thoughtful—amazing catographer and sent pics during each visit. I never felt worried about Randy while Lupe was watching him. She even took out my garbage and brought in my mail! I will definitely contact Lupe again for another drop-in.”
“Chau is such the animal whisper. Somehow animals gravitate to her, probably because she understands their boundaries and has a kind soul. I’ve been fortunate to watcher her raise her one year old pup. Her dog is so well behaved and confident, which speaks to the training Chau did with her. Chau is thoughtful and patient. Your fur baby will be in really good hands.”

“Janette was amazing, 10/10 recommend her! She accepted my last minute booking on a very busy weekend, communicating quickly and kindly to coordinate the drop-in. She did an amazing job of communicating before, during, & after the drop-in even when I wasn't able to promptly answer her. Janette even went above & beyond - going out on a limb to greet my very scared cats with treats!”
“Maria was such a great sitter! Thank you so much for being patient with our sassy and needy baby! I will definitely be calling on Maria when Honey needs the extra care!”
About: Hi! Here to help with your fur baby. I have been around dogs my whole life. I have taken care of my siblings dogs while they go on vacation for 2-3 weeks at a time . I have experience with my dog whom experiences allergies. I have experience with my dog and being a picky eater and his backward sneezing. I have weekends free. I am available during lunch hour Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Wednesday and Thursday only evenings. Weekends I am available at any time. I feel more comfortable watching dogs in my own home if necessary. Feel free to reach out and we can reach and agreement about caring for pets overnight.
About: I really enjoy getting to know the dogs, cuddling, and playing with them. I am okay with cleaning up after dogs, because I have been walking my own dogs for years. I have fostered and owned dogs and cats of all sizes, so no size is too big or small. If there is a yard, I would love to play with the dogs the entire time that I am watching them, if not I am willing to walk them to a park to let them get their exercise, and have time to socialize. I am open to working with schedules, and if possible, doing last minute bookings. Communication is key with me, so as long as we are both on the same page, I am here for your dog! I am working full time, but I am always free to walk dogs before work, after work, or on the weekends. I am also more than happy to watch cats while you are on vacation. I currently have 2 dogs and 2 cats, so you can decide if you would prefer the dog to socialize, or for me to do a stay at your home! I have an extra crate if crating is necessary, but I usually leave dogs out so they can roam explore and let me know when they would like to play. Even if I am busy, I will always make sure to pause and give your furr baby a play break. I honestly believe, dogs know what they need, and extra cuddles never hurt. With that, I always try to keep an eye out for cues about the bathroom, water, or food, and also give them lots of love.
“Nariah was great! Took great care of my jazmine and even brought in a perishable package that was delivered and put it away for me. I mistakenly put the wrong address on my reservation and Nariah was understanding and still was able to help me out for the weekend. Will definitely use her again.”
“Shit is an animal whisperer and is the person who brought my furry baby to me, rescuing her as a stray and eventually finding her a home with me. Shit is detailed, attentive, loving, and trustworthy. Highly recommend!”
“Liz is the best! She cared for my active, attention loving Australian Shepard. She provided him with plenty of playtime and lots of cuddles. She also kept us updated everyday while we were on a 10 day trip. When I picked him up, I could tell he felt right at home with Liz! We will definitely be using Liz again in the future and highly recommend her to others!”
About: I love animals - I own a bearded dragon, 1 snake, 2 finches, 1 parrot canary, turtle, fish, and my best friend which also happens to be a dog. I work online and I wake up at 8:30 am and walk the dogs at 9am everyday and again in the afternoons. I am free the whole day. I have a fenced yard and a friendly dog to keep your dog occupied. I play with your furry companion if your furry companion likes to play.
About: Hi! I’m Jacky, I’m 23, and I’m working as a healthcare medical assistant during my Med school gap years (just trying to get by honestly). I recently graduated from UIUC as an MCB major!! 🤩 I absolutely LOVE animals. I have 4 pets at home: 1 cat and 3 dogs. My cat likes to mind her own business and will probably hide from your pets, but my dogs will have a blast having a third friend in the room :) I have experience with dog and cat-sitting, not just through Rover, for a little over 5 years! I’m super friendly and active, so your pet will be in great hands! I’ve been wanting to exercise more often, so your pet is going to end up taking ME on walks lol. Or if your pets a cuddler, even better. I’d also love a study buddy! I work full time Mon-Fri and can do drop in visits before and after work. I am usually done at work by 1pm and the rest is work from home. If pet is staying at my place, the walks will be before and after work and before bed (that’s usually every pets schedule). I have a big fenced backyard and two floors in my apartment, so plenty of space for play and sleep! Thank you for reading this far! Hope to see you soon <3 I’m currently working full time Mon-Fri and have time before and after work, as well as on weekends. Send me a message and we can work something out! Pets at my place will have a ton of fun and never feel lonely! If your pet has specific requirements, I can easily accommodate to them to ensure their well being. Pets will always be babies to me, and I’ll treat and care for them the same! Again, my pretty kitty will stay away haha and if needed, I can take extra precaution to separate if it’s an issue.
“Maribel was my favorite Rover sitter we’ve ever used! She was incredibly communicative (sending the cutest photos and updates each visit), responsible, and Toulouse clearly loved her. We came home to a very happy cat!”
“Ivan is good with animals not just dogs but all animals, he has 2 dogs and a parrot that love him alot. He is very patient with animals and likes to interact with them.”
