I have worked in home health care for years. I was once promoted from volunteer to assistant director of the North Texas Birds of Prey Center because the director got sick and I cared for the 25 birds and menagerie of animals and volunteers for the 3 months he was in the hospital. And more similar references.... I have had a vegetable garden for 15+ years and could help you with your plants and gardens as well a logistics in organic weed control and organic garden maintenance.

  • Peace of Mind Pet Care

    Hi, my name is Claire, and I love animals! I have been providing professional pet sitting services for over twelve years. I have a BA in Animal Biology from George Mason University and have completed internships at the Smithsonian Zoo and the National Aquarium, so I have a great deal of experience working with many kinds of exotic animals. I have cared for many different kinds of pets while their owners were out of town, including ducks, rabbits, lizards, snakes, fish, birds, rats, ferrets, frogs, and of course, cats and dogs. I have experience working with young kittens and puppies and administering medications when needed. I always strive to make pets feel as happy and as comfortable as possible while they are in my care and take the time to interact with them beyond just the basics. I can also take care of other household needs, including taking in the mail and newspapers, watering plants, taking out the trash, etc. I live in the Irvington/Sullivan's Gulch area, and I have my own car, so transportation is not a problem. I am happy to work with anyone within about three miles of me for pet visits at your house. I am also able to care for small caged animals (reptiles, amphibians, rodents, etc.) in my home while you are out of town. In this scenario, I'm willing to work with clients up to five miles from me and can do pickup and drop-off if needed. I have several excellent references and will gladly provide them upon request! I look forward to working with you and your furry, scaly, feathery or even slimy friends.

  • LovePaws

    I can do pretty much whatever. I do not have the qualifications to do training, other than the basic commands. I can house and dog sit for extended amounts of time. Just come by for a walk or run with your pups. I can water, feed and pet your cats. I can feed your fish and water your plants while I'm in your home. I can take your little guys to the park to play fetch, or just lay in the sun. I can provide baths and administration of medicine, if they have any. You name it, and I can probably do it. I am very negotiable with my rates. If you need a sitter, but you don't have the desired amount, I am willing to work with you. I will not turn away an animal for lack of sufficient funds. * Overnights for less then 4 days are $30 to $45 a night. The rates depend on the animal(s), behavior, and needed maintenance. * Overnights for more then 4 days are $25 to $40 a night. * Walking per visit is usually between 15 t o 60 minutes for $12 to $16 dollars. Like I said, I would be willing to work with people.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Kelly's Pet Sitting

(2 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Caring for pets is my passion. Not only am I able to spend my days with cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, and other pets, but I also get to help their parents. Many people have told me that they did not want to leave their pets in a kennel or impose on family or friends to watch their pet. Once they found my pet sitting service, they feel so relieved and now have the peace of mind knowing that their pets have a professional pet sitter caring for them.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

Years ago, we took our dog to a local kennel when we had to travel out of state. Our dog didn't do well there even though it was a reputable kennel. She was so stressed and wouldn't eat or play. I knew there had to be a better way, so I started to care for pets in their own homes where they are most comfortable. I have found that pets are less stressed when they are in familiar surroundings and stay on their normal routine.
