Joyce did a great job taking care of our two kitties when my husband and I were on vacation. She sent us pictures whenever she visited and played with the kitties. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a professional and caring cat sitter.

Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.

Marina is the absolute best!!! We have 2 cats, one of which has diabetes. Marina came to our house twice a day for over 2 weeks while we were in Europe. She administered insulin. fed the cats, and cleaned the litter box ever time she visited. We have had many cat sitters in the past and it was obvious as soon as you meet Marina that she has such a calming presence and really understands and loves animals.

I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!

Holly and Piva are wonderful pet sitters. Our dogs had a great time with them while we were away and even our cat, who generally goes AWOL when we do, ended up thinking they were pretty special people.

Peggy (and Loving Paws) is a compassionate, caring animal professional. She has helped my pit bull mix, Barney, to be more calm and well behaved just by walking him. The services she offers are everything you could possibly want from a pet sitter and specialist. She is always on time. I am looking forward to continue using her services as she is honest and dependable.

Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto

Pam took excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!

I am so happy to have found Uncle Joe. In fact he is currently looking after my cats while I am away! I am usually very uncomfortable having anyone in my house, especially when I'm gone, but I feel none of that with Joe. He sends me a photo and quick update each time he visits which really sets my mind at ease. He also offers to bring in mail, water plants, and other extras which is really nice. His prices are very reasonable and he even offers a price break if you buy a "package" of visits, which is great for frequent travelers or a long trip. He was incredibly thorough during our first meeting, getting a ton of info and background. He is a natural, a true animal lover, and really knows his stuff--he's made for this line of work. I have never been so happy with another cat sitter and I have used quite a few. Do yourself a favor, give Uncle Joe's Pet Care a try!

We've had Gina house-sit and stay with our precious Shih Tzus for years. She is absolutely dedicated to loving and caring for animals. She is experienced in giving medications, when necessary and our girls love her. I never worry about a thing when we travel. We've been gone as long as two weeks, and Gina is professional in every way. I highly recommend Gina for pet-sitting, dog walking, or any job related to your precious pets.

Adam was amazing with our dog Ella, both when he house sat for us and when he walks her from time to time. When Adam comes to the door Ella immediately is over the moon excited and knows exactly where to go and sit after she is done saying hello.... yes you got it, next to his car so she can go for a ride and a hike. Adam also surprised me when I got home by having the sheets from the bed he slept in while he was house sitting all washed, folded and sitting on the end of the bed. What a delight not to need to clean up after a house sitter. I give Adam "4 Paws Up"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

  • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
  • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
    • 45-minute visit: $28.
    • 60-minute visit: $32.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
    • 12 hours: $100.
    • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.
