The next time you head out of town and need someone to take care of your pets — and check in on you home — turn to Rover. It's easy to find a loving Wood River pet sitter on Rover who'll give your pet one-on-one attention while you're away, and take care of your home. Search from hundreds of trusted pet sitters in Wood River, IL, read sitter profiles, and reach out to sitters who seem like a good fit for you and your pet(s). We know it can be tough to leave your pet, which is why we encourage every pet parent and sitter to have a Meet & Greet before booking the stay. Then, when you're ready, book and pay for your house and pet sitter all through Rover — it's easy, safe, and cashless. You'll have the peace of mind knowing that your sitter has free premium insurance, a team of safety experts available 24/7, and will send you cute photo updates throughout the stay.
