Lori took excellent care of our two cats 🐈 and one has diabetes which requires a shot twice a day. And she takes great pictures. We will definitely request her for next year's vacation.

I requested Monica services for an upcoming trip on Thanksgiving weekend and needed drop in visits for my cat. From the start Monica had great communication and did a wonderful job keeping me updated throughout my trip. She made me and my pet’s first Rover experience an exceptional one and I will confidently schedule her services if needed in the future.

Jeremy was fantastic! He went above and beyond to take care of small housekeeping tasks for our kitties, and he captured photos of our babies having fun and playing despite their shy personalities. He was incredibly understanding and accommodating with communication while my husband and I were busy trying to plan our trip, and Jeremy is clearly a natural with animals and a kind, patient soul! We would hire him again in a heartbeat.

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.

Tanya was extremely attentive to our cats while we were gone and very attuned to their body language and (obviously) non-verbal communication. She was also great at communicating with us. Couldn’t recommend a better caretaker - would gladly hire her again!

We added an extra visit on the night we came home - the puppies were all taken care of so we could just settle in and relax with them after a late flight back. Christina did an amazing job the whole week!

Amazing job, my cat can be testy around new people and Chelsie handled it like a champ. Made sure Luna had food and fresh water daily along with clean litter. Sent daily updates giving the details on the visit. 10/10!

Ali did a wonderful job with drop-in sessions for my senior dog. He loved her visits and was always happy and tired afterwards. Ali’s communication is prompt and clear. A member of my household is immunocompromised so we take precautions around illness, and Ali was flexible and very respectful.

Troy was awesome with Asher!! Left very detailed feedback, and got him some much needed exercise during the day while I'm gone. Asher was very tired after, which is the goal! I have no complaints and would recommend to anyone looking to supplement some socialization and exercise for their pets.

Alison is amazing with our dogs. She offers a lot of different care options, and we did a meet and greet at her home to make sure our pups got along with hers. It went great, and our dogs get so excited when we take them over there now! Alison is great at communicating and even sends text and photo updates. Couldn’t recommend her enough!

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!
