Laszlo dropped in on my elderly cat for an extended period of time and was so wonderful with him! Made being away from my cat much easier. Plus, he even watered my plants while I was gone!

Mercedes is wonderful with Winnie! She keeps me up to date on their visits and makes sure there’s fresh water in the bowl so I don’t have to worry about it when I get home. She also makes sure all Winnie’s toys are picked up after they’re done playing. It’s these little things that make such a difference and I love knowing Winnie is well taken care of when I’m at work. Thanks, again!!

10/10, would recommend Katie! She did a few drop-in visits and cared for our 2 dogs and 3 cats during an overnight trip away. The animals were all smiles when we returned!

Ana did several drop in visits to check in on on my kitten while I was away for a week and a half. She was professional and caring. I felt peace of mind knowing that my cat's well-being was in Ana's capable hands. Great communication and also cleaned up any messes that my cat left behind. Would def hire her again!!

About: I have had dogs and cats all my life. I have lots of experience taking care of them, including feeding, walking and above all love. I am currently working part time. I am switching between the Carbondale and Cape Girardeau area. I have lots of free time to deliver pet care to a wide area. I'm flexible and understand that pet owners have specific needs for their animals, and I will cater towards that. For dog walking specifically, I know safe places for walks to ensure your pets safety. Additionally I have a pet seat belt in my car if needed, I am well prepared.

Stephanie was wonderful! She was quick to respond and communicated great. Winnie had a great time with her, she definitely went above and beyond! She also made sure all of Winnie’s toys were put in the toy basket before she left. We will definitely have Stephanie come play again sometime! Thanks for a great visit!

Trust Brandi implicitly with our yellow lab; she’s been walking him daily since he was little and we didn’t hesitate to leave her to dog sit at our house when we were out of town.

About: Growing up on a farm, I have always had a passion for taking care of various kinds of animals, but particularly cats and dogs. I have 10+ years of experience dog and cat sitting for others and I thoroughly enjoy meeting new furry friends! I just graduated law school and I’m currently home full-time while studying to take the bar exam. I have lots of time to cuddle and play with your pet(s) throughout the day! My apartment complex has a small dog park and lots of paths for walking dogs. I walk my dog 2 miles each day because we love to be outside (rain or shine)! Pets can be easily crated if needed but is certainly not a requirement.

Rachael is one of the most caring and conscientious people when it comes to looking after and interacting with animals. Throughout the last 10+ years of knowing Rachael, I have seen the dedication she puts into making sure the pets around her are well-taken care of and well-loved. This is apparent whether it is one of her own pets, the pet of a friend, or one of the several dogs that she has fostered. I have trusted her to look after my cats on numerous occasions and I know I never have to worry that they are looked after and attended to.

I'm so happy Esther is choosing to do this! She loves animals and I remember volunteering with her at the humane shelter a while ago, and the staff would always light up when she walked in. It's because she is so good with the dogs! She's also watched my dog a few times at her house, and he always loves it! I would highly recommend her!
