Monica watched our two cats while we were on vacation. She did an amazing job and we would definitely use her again. She provided updates and pictures each day.

Jenevieve is a literal angel. She was just supposed to do a drop-in to see Deku and let him out. My A/C went out the night before the scheduled visit and it’s was 100 degrees outside. Jenevieve took him to her home to watch him for the day while I was at work. If it wasn’t for her, Deku would definitely not be okay! She saved the day and saved me from so much stress during my first day at my new job! A literal lifesaver!

Troy has been nothing but amazing, not only with our dog but with everything he does! Our pup is a bit people selective and moose was comfortable in no time due to Troy being patient and knowledgeable about how to handle a more reactive dog. My husband and I would 100% recommend him to take care of your furry friend too! He is always on time and makes sure he leaves the house cleaner then when he got there!

Lisa, was great with my three cats. I have a almost 15 yr old male cat that has been very skittish all his life. Most pet sitters have never even gotten him out to eat his can food but Lisa not only got him out to eat but also got his medicine on his ears that he has to have twice a day every day for hypothyroidism. Knowing that he was taken care while my husband and I were out of town attending our daughters wedding was a hugh blessing. Thanks again Lisa.

I have never met someone who cares so much about animals, especially dogs! Unfortunately his dog passed away about 2 weeks ago now and this is most definitely the right gig for Jaden. Someone who has been close to this man and his dog I have never seen anything like it…. Trust me your beloved pet with be in great hands. A man who cares truly so much that I can personally guarantee he will act like it is very own best friend.

Our cats are still warming up to the idea of people and tend to hide (even from us on some days), but Nichole did her best to win them over anyway. It gave me great peace of mind to know the person checking on them was so attentive, even if the cats themselves weren't enthusiastic about a new friend. Thanks so much!

We’ve used Sidney for drop-in visits multiple times and she is always reliable, which we really appreciate. We return home from a long day away to find our dog content and comfortable because he’s had a break. We will use her again!

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!
