Lori came to our Babe we are home to care for our two boys. She is a wonderful cat caregiver. I recommend her for pet sitting any time. She will send pictures and photos of your pets every day. That is so thoughtful of her.

They asked thorough questions about the pets and house. This service goes above and beyond pet sitting, with services like plant watering, trash, mail, lights, windows, music/tv for pets. It was great. Plus, I even got 2 texts and pictures per visit while we were on vacation. It's a bit expensive, but comparable when considering a boarding house or similar. Only a few dollars more for the pets to be in the comfort of their own home.

I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

We recently had the pleasure of engaging Amy to care for our two cats while we were out of town. We couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. She did all the feeding and maintenance activities we requested but went above and beyond when playing and caring for our two loved ones. She sent us great pictures and updates, it was reassuring and fun to receive the photos. Our cat Kato is a real recluse when it come to new people in the home… We were so surprised to see pictures of him out playing with Amy and our other cat D’jango. We highly recommend Amy’s pet sitting!

About

Hi, my name is Lindsay Honea. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University this last December 2013 with honors and a bachelor's in liberal studies (teaching arts) and decided to get into the business field! I am currently enrolled in Point Loma's graduate MBA (Masters in Business Administration) program. I am also a member and leader of the track team at PLNU and will move into a coaching position next year. I love house and pet sitting and a chance to get out of my little apartment. It reminds me more of being home when I am in a place that has been loved and cared for by a family. I also love animals, and they only add to this feeling of being home as I am from a ranch/farm in Arizona and was surrounded by them growing up. It offers me a mini vacation as well as a break from my apartment. I live and work in San Diego, so I am available when needed. I have also been a trusted nanny/babysitter for many families over the years and am wanting to transition to more house/pet sitting. I think that it says a lot that families have trusted me with their little ones! I am also very active and greatly enjoy taking dogs for runs/walks if asked to and have a lot of experience with many different kinds of animals. In general, I perform the jobs that are needed in house/pet sitting. I have great problem-solving skills, and I am very responsible and organized and will leave your place as neat if not more than it was when you left it with me. I can definitely be trusted to take care or your home and pets!

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.

    beloved cat is 20 years old. Is unsteady on feet and misses litter box sometimes. Very gentle cat who needs a quiet personality to pet comfort him while checking on him. Shy with strangers. Also I need you to call me if he is lethargic or unrsponsive, or if his time has come to say goodbye. Takes oral medication once per day via syringe (no needle), but has never scrached or bitten anyone.
