There are many, many details to this work, and they all count. So we make sure every Critter Sitter is familiar with every page of our in‐depth handbook before they work directly for our clients!

Reliable, responsible and accommodating

Critter Sitter clients rave about how easy their Sitters make their lives. Because the Sitter knows the house and pets, last‐minute arrangements are usually no problem.

And Critter Sitters are determined! We’ve even waded through waist‐high floodwaters to care for a client’s pets. When we say we’ll be there, we’ll be there.
