During each 15 minute “shy kitty” visit, we will spend time feeding kitty, refreshing water, scooping litter, and providing treats. Your mail will be collected, lights and blinds adjusted, and newspaper brought in. We will make every effort to see your kitty(s) prior to leaving.
During each 30 minute visit, we will spend a full 30 minutes with your pet(s), feeding them, refreshing their water, scooping litter, walking, exercising them, cleaning up, brushing and/or playing with your “fur kids”. Time commences upon arrival to your home.
During each 45 minute visit, we will spend a full 45 minutes with your pet(s), feeding them, refreshing their water, scooping litter, walking, exercising them, cleaning up, brushing and/or playing with your “fur kids”. This is the perfect option for more than two pets or for pets requiring additional care.
During each hour-long visit, we will spend a full 60 minutes with your pet(s), feeding them, refreshing their water, scooping litter, walking, running, cleaning up, brushing and/or playing with them. This is also a good time for medication administration, as it allows time to carefully monitor for any adverse reactions. One-hour visits are suggested when there are four or more pet(s).
We will stay with your pet(s) overnight for a full 12 hours. Sample overnight times are (7 pm-7 am) or (8 pm-8 am). These times may be flexible, depending upon our schedule and your schedule. This is the perfect option for older pets, those pets requiring frequent medication or care, pets who suffer from separation anxiety, and your new puppy or kitten! During overnight stays, the pet(s) receive a walk upon arrival, potty break before bedtime and another walk prior to departure (more walks and/or potty breaks are provided during our stay as needed).
If the pet’s family will be away during this time, we would highly recommend another one-hour visit during the day, to ensure they are not waiting more than 6 hours for a potty break or feeding. Our policy is to provide potty breaks at least every 6-8 hours.
We stay in your home, continuously, with your pet(s). This rate applies to us "living" in your home
and staying with your pet(s) while you are away and includes all services. Your home will be left
clean. All used sheets, towels and linens will be washed and bed made.
*On vacation, business trip or longer.
If your pet(s) has a scheduled vet visit, day care stay or a grooming appointment, that you just can't make, we will gladly pick them up and safely transport them to and/or from the appointment(s). A trip fee will be charged each way. If the pet needs to be left, and picked back up, it is considered an additional trip. If you wish for us to remain with your pet during their appointment, there will be an additional fee for every hour we remain. This may be discussed prior to being booked.
No time to stop at the pet store, but out of food, litter, and other items? Not a problem for us!!! Simply text, call or e-mail the list of items you need, and we will happily go shopping for you. We will deliver the items to your home or work. We are also available to provide this service during our stay or before a visit. Trip charge plus the cost of items purchased.
Going out of town and worried about your home/property? If you have a trip planned with your pet but would like someone to check on your home (to give it a lived-in look). We can turn designated lamps / lights on and off, adjust blinds, water plants, collect mail and newspapers, take out the trash, adjust A/C for your arrival home, etc. Locked out of your home? We will come to save the day!
Extra pets - more than two? Pets visiting for the holidays? We do not charge according to the number of pets on our visits. Our rates are based on time needed to properly care for your pets. Homes with 3 dogs, may require a minimum of a 45-minute visit; homes with 4 dogs will require a one-hour visit, dependent on their need ( going on walks versus fenced in yard potty breaks). If your home is blessed with more than 4 dogs, and your dogs do not require walks, or you have other questions regarding your situation, kindly call us and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
