Michael has been fantastic. I've now used him to pet sit for my cat on 2 week-long occasions. He never forgets, is flexible about finding a time to pick up keys, and is very careful about instructions (how much to feed, of what, when, taking the dirty litter out to the trash, etc.) Of particular note was how he went above, beyond, and to the moon for me on the first occasion. I was taking a cruise from Puerto Rico (which doesn't require a US passport but the other countries I was visiting did). I left my passport at home and was stuck in San Juan not able to board the cruise. I called Michael since he has access to my apt & passport, he dropped everything, went to my apartment, found my passport, and shopped around at a number of Fed Ex locations to try to overnight my passport to me. This was a Friday and it turns out that San Juan doesn't deliver packages on Sundays OR Saturdays so it was going to be faster to fly home and get the passport myself. After shopping around the city to try to get my passport to me and being available for my frantic calls, Michael went BACK to my apt to drop off my passport for when I came to pick it up. Though the FedEx-ing didn't work out, the lengths that Michael went to help me out were extraordinary and I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone who needs pet-sitting (or who MIGHT have a travel fiasco like I did). Thank you Michael!

I was dog-sitting for a friend for 11 days and Krystie was a life-saver. She came promptly every night for the "last" walk - was sweet and kind. The best was that she was extremely reliable. A great find! Highly recommend using her services.

Suki watched my two cats for about a week. She was great at communicating and letting me know that the cats were okay every day I was away. It was such a relief to not have to worry about my pets while on vacation. I'd highly recommend Suki for any pet-sitting needs. Thanks Suki!

Sing was very nice & gentle with my dogs. I would recommend her. She did both of my dogs. For the convenience and the fact that my dogs don't have to sit in a cage for many hours. I will happily have her come again.

Jenn was walking our dogs for a few years. Unfortunately, we had to move out of Manhattan just a few weeks ago. The dogs really loved her!!! Jenn's ability to communicate and control our dogs was amazing!!! No one else could have done it like Jenn. She was caring, trustworthy and made any efforts to meet our changed needs. We highly recommend Jenn/Flipz Pet Care to everyone.

We love Prima Donna Pet Services! We have two large rescue dogs and have the utmost trust in Prima Donna's Pet Service. We rely on them to care for our beloved pets whenever we go away or just need a night out. In addition to the service being extremely reliable, we always know that our fur kids are cared by professionals with excellent judment, kind hearts and a love for animals. It's the only pet sitting service I have ever used that I know with 100% confidence that my dog kids will be cared for as well as if I were home.

Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience

Ed has been invaluable to us and our new puppies. We work in Manhattan during the week, and simply can't make it back to NJ during the day, but Ed has been there every day we've needed him, making sure our puppies get the attention, water, exercise, etc. that they need, and he obviously cares about the puppies. He's also given us links to articles, advice, etc. on raising new puppies. I fully recommend Edz Pet Walking!

I was lucky enough to hear about Katy through a friend and have her watch my cats for a long weekend last month. I'd never have anyone else cat sit for me now as long as Katy's available! She's kind and caring and her love for animals is apparent. I love how she'd send me photos of my cats while I was away too! My cats were so calm and happy upon my return, which made me feel less guilty about leaving them. I highly recommend Katy Cat Care! She also has great experience taking care of animals in need of daily medications. Luckily, I don't have this problem, but it's nice to know in case of future needs.

Having never used a pet sitting service before, I was very concerned about my cats being taken care of during my vacation. I posted my pet sitting job on Thumbtack and Kira of Animal Allies Pet Service was the first qualified person to respond. Kira provided references that I could contact for referrals. The references said nothing but great things about Kira. Kira patiently answered my many questions via email and we set up a time for a meet-n-greet with the cats at my apartment. She arrived on time. We talked for awhile and then went over their care routine. I gave Kira my house keys and I left the next morning knowing that I had a great person taking care of my cats. While I was away, Kira took care of my cats, watered my plants, got my mail and provided me with a daily update on my cats including pics via her client portal. I felt comfortable leaving my cats with her just knowing her extensive animal care background and training. I highly recommend considering Kira if you need a pet sitter. I will use Kira's pet sitting services again when I travel. Great experience. Thank you for everything Kira.

We hired Amber for cat sitting services over Thanksgiving break. Amber was very professional and caring and we particularly loved that she sent many photos and updates throughout her visits for our two cats. She even took care of our neighbor’s cat as well! They were really well taken care of and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Tammy is unquestioningly a wonderful pet sitter. We have left our two elderly Nichols in her care for two weeks on occasion, and we returned to happy and healthy dogs. Tammy , in addition is a delightful person who is absolutely lovely to deal with. We sing the highest praises on her behalf.

December 2016 Julie W. Exotic Parrot sitting I was a little reluctant to leave our newly rescued Eclectus parrot for more than just a couple of days, for fear that he might start plucking his feathers again. I instantly liked Katie and knew that this wasn’t just another job for her, but rather her passion. She was not only great around the parrot, but my dog took to her as well. Katie went above and beyond caring for our parrot. She sent me a video of him playing in his water bowl and pictures every day. I absolutely wasn’t worried about him for a minute while we were away. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet.
