Introduction: Hi, This is Sarah from All Creatures Great and Small PetCare. Petsitting and Housesitting are two of my specialties. I have over 20 years experience working with animals on a professional level. As a former zookeeper, I have worked with everything from tarantulas, alligators, and macaws to monkeys. I have petsat for dogs, cats, birds, and small animals, but also specialize in exotics. If you are in need of someone to take care of your "zoo", I'm your person. I also housesit for those extended trips away. I will maintain your indoor and outdoor property, whether that includes pets or not. If you are in need of further services such as animal education shows for special events or schools. I would love to be your animal ambassador.

Pet Sitting

Sarah (All Creatures Great and Small PetCare) is a caring, knowledgeable, person who took great care of our shy cat Tuffy! She went above and beyond even cleaning up a couple of our long-haired cat's hairballs. She made sure Tuffy was fed and watered and her litter box was clean. Sarah also brought in our mail and newspapers! We will ask Sarah again to look after Tuffy when we go away. Even though we could choose only three items on the question above, we would also add value and punctuality. She is a wonderful, friendly communicator and updated us on Tuffy frequently when we were away. We highly recommend Sarah for pet sitting! Thanks Sarah!!!

Thank you Donna and Lew for allowing me to watch Tuffy and being so kind. I would be happy to help out any time. Shy kitties need great care too. 😊

Sarah kept me updated about my pets every day. She answered my texts right away. She was very punctual on her visits and everything was perfect when I returned. My pets were well taken care of! Will definitely use her again when we travel.

Dog Walking

Sarah is amazing!!! My dog Flower is in love and so thankful to have someone take her out on walks💜 She is very caring and my pup always still tired by the time I get home from work. She has even gone above and beyond by cleaning up after my cats. I highly recommend her if your babies could use some daily exercise and playtime! Just try not to book her up too much, Flower still need her Sarah time too!🌺

Pet Sitting

Sarah was absolutely amazing. We left our 3 boy kitties for the first time and I felt extremely comfortable with her caring for them. She went out of her way to update me on each visit, even sending photos so I could see they were happy. As a bonus Sarah also discovered that my husband had left the pool hose on which saved us hundreds of dollars in water bills. I will definitely use All Creatures Great and Small over and over again. Fabulous kitty sitter!

Pet Sitting

Sarah took excellent care of our two cats. They are very particular when it comes to new people but the cats really felt comfortable with her right away. Sarah was very good on giving us updates on the cats while we were away.

Thank you Chris. I am happy to watch the kitties anytime. Can’t wait for the next visit.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is based on the average for the area and by length of visit and number of visits per day. Occasionally, I will run discounts for first time clients.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After communicating with the client via Thumbtack or text, I like to set up a meet and greet. At the meet and greet I meet the owner/owners and the pet needing services. I like to make sure the pet is comfortable with me as well as the owner who will be trusting me with the best care for their animals. At this time the owner can go over the tasks they would like me to do while they are away from home.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a biology degree from Calvin University in Grand Rapids, MI. While I was there, I tried to take as many classes as I could in relation to animals and animal behavior. While in school, I volunteered at a wildlife center where I was able to gain hands on experience taking care of injured and orphaned wildlife. After graduation, I decided that daily animal husbandry was what I was passionate about. Therefore, my first job was as a zookeeper and eventual bird and mammal curator at a local zoo. My experiences there gave me more understanding and knowledge of many varieties of animals, as well as learning various methods of training.
