We're so happy we found Tara on Rover.com. She and her family took excellent care of our bulldog, Belle, and so I have no reservations at all about asking Tara for her help again when we go away. It felt soooo much better leaving Belle with Tara in their quiet, comfortable home than it did leaving her in a kennel. Thanks Tara, and thanks Rover.com!

Tara and her family took amazing care of our Sasha for an entire week! We are new to the area and had to quickly find some quality care for her. Tara graciously offered a "meet & greet" so we could all get to know one another beforehand. Sasha's week with Tara's family was wonderful! She came home so happy and playful and clearly received lots of love and attention and walks during her stay:) Tara ...

Tara was wonderful! She and her family were a perfect fit for my high energy puppy. She was very understanding when Poppy had accidents in the house and charged a very reasonable price. She even agreed to sit Poppy longer than I originally had said. Thank you Tara!

UVA Grad, clean home, LOVE animals!

I am a UVA graduate, a Mother of two, who are also animal lovers like me, own a clean home in downtown Charlottesville in a lovely neighborhood, non-smoker, and have fostered many fur-babies for the SPCA over the years. Our family adores caring for animals and doing anything we can to keep them as happy and comfortable as possible. Whether it's cooking food for the fur babies, wiping or washing them to keep them fresh ...

What Tara would like to know about your dog

Please bring as many comforts of home for your fur-baby, including food and water bowls, beds and sleep-time things, blankets, stuffed toys, chew toys, leash, harness, sweaters (in cold weather) medications, etc.
