We've been using Sharon Lee/Pet Concierge Tampa Bay for several years and have always had a great experience. She has covered pet sitting for both short trips and long trips. Sharon is always accommodating to our travel schedule and genuinely cares about our pets. I have recommended Sharon and her service to friends and co-workers and will continue to do so!Jun 24, 2015
I work all day and hated the thought of my rescue pups being cooped up in the house for so long. I interviewed a few people and knew immediately Sharon is the best. My dogs are are always excited for their walks and trips to the park. You will absolutely love Tampa Bay Pet Concierge!Jun 22, 2015
We have a zoo that consists of three dogs, a McCaw (bird), cat and a Guinea pig. Sharon and her team were able to accommodate all of them so we were relieved and worry free during our travels. She rocks and highly recommend her and her team.Jun 22, 2015

I have used Pet Concierge many times over the past few years. They stay in my home and allow my animals to sleep with them so they can maintain their routines. I have received pics and videos to assure me everyone is doing well. I would highly recommend this company and Sharon Lee.Oct 3, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing can be complicated, especially if there is a focus on offering individualized pet care. There are many things to consider when quoting fees. Depending upon the services requested, multiple pets can be very time consuming so that has to be taken into consideration. Holidays, length of visit requested, travel time, last minute requests, very early morning or very late night visits are normally priced at a higher rate. Shorter "welfare check" visits are customary priced at a lower rate. The number of consecutive and / or total visits can have an effect on pricing also. If over night care services are needed, the fee could be effected by the sitter's arrival and departure time at the client's home, along with the number of daytime visits requested, in addition to the over night stays. It all comes down to time....How much time is required to do the job, correctly and professionally, in order for the pets and their parents to be happy when all is said and done!!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes, I am a member of NAPPS - National Association of Professional Pet Sitters and they offer members seminars, research, and all types of continuing education to keep Pet Care Providers up to date so we can provide the best pet care available.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been an animal lover all of my life. When I became a Social Worker, I worked with abused children as a Therapist. The use of animals proved very helpful to both the kids and me, as it provided a casual, non-threatening atmosphere for kids to share. Later, I decided that animals were not only my passion but I wanted to work with them full time. Thus, here I am!!! I love it!
