"I do just as much research when choosing a vet, groomer, pet sitter, etc for my pets, as I would do for myself when choosing a doctor, hair stylist, etc. Not only am I putting my pets care in the hands of someone else, I am also trusting them with my house keys and having access to my belongings. I did my research and decided upon Pink Paws Pet Care and Ms. Mae. When Mae arrived during our initial meeting, I immediately felt comfortable with her and knew she would provide excellent care for my babies. Mae was extremely professional, asked tons of questions regarding my pets eating habits, play habits, etc. Asked who their veterinarian was, asked if there were any medications to be given etc. Needless to say, at the end of our initial meeting, I was more than impressed by Mae’s professionalism and her thoroughness in regards to the questions she asked. I was more than comfortable with leaving my babies in her care. While I was on vacation and Mae was caring for my babies, I received a very thorough email every day detailing the events that occurred during her visit, along with pictures of my babies. I have three kitties with very different personalities and behaviors. The things Mae would write to me in her report could only be written by someone who played and interacted with my babies. At the end of the day, I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing my babies were receiving excellent care and were well taken care of by Mae. I highly recommend Pink Paw Pet Care and Mae and will certainly be calling Mae again. Not only did Mae provide great care to my pets, she also took care of my trash on pick up day, put my dirty dishes in the dishwasher, dusted my tv stand, and swept around my kitties litter box and feeding area. I cannot express in words how impressed I was with the service Mae provided. She went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. It was clear to me that Mae truly enjoys and loves what she does."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.
