As a pet owner, it can be a stressful to leave your fur-baby with just anyone. I am so thankful to have found Mindy who went above and beyond by cleaning the cat litter and food bowels, taking out the trash, and getting the mail. She quickly put my mind at ease with text updates throughout my vacation on how my cat was doing and although it seems trivial, being sent pictures of my cat cuddling up to her affirmed my decision in hiring Mindy. She is clearly an animal lover and is genuinely compassionate about the well-being of your pet. I highly recommend Mindy as your pet sitter - will definitely be using her services in the future! Thank you again Mindy - Dorian was in great hands.

Lisa was great! She was flexible and and fairly priced to work with me and my pet's needs for my weekend away! I came home to happy animals with everything just as I left it! Lisa gave each of my animals (a dog and cat) individual attention and I can tell my dog is worn out from a weekend of playing and getting spoiled rotten. Thank you Lisa for taking such great care of my "children!"

Candy has pet sit for us several times. We have several labrador retrievers and we are very particular about their care as they are members of our family. Stoneman Animal & Pet Services take exceptional care of our dogs and gives us piece of mind when we travel!

We were very pleased with How thoughtful Connie was with our pets. She kept our 3 cats over a long 4 day weekend. We received a text on the first day letting us know how things were going and again a few days later. The extra services she offered like getting the mail and paper were nice to have. Connie is thoughtful, caring and we trusted her with our cats which says alot. We would highly recommend her as a pet sitter. The Bryant's March 2015

My house was crazy when she was pet sitting for me because I had painters in the house. She did a good job, even had to track down a lost kitty. He was freaked out because of the painters and was hiding behind the sofa! All the kitties are glad I am home and things are back to normal. I will hire her again. Thanks Sherry

About

Midlothian Pet Pals provides dog walking and pet sitting services for dogs, cats, all sized birds, fish tanks, rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters. In addition, we offer bathing services. We also provide mail collection and trash to curb service while a client is out of town. Our reason for pet sitting is simple; we love animals and wish to provide pet owners, like you, an affordable alternative to boarding and allow your precious pets to stay in the comfort of their own home while you are away from home. We are dedicated to the safety, well-being, comfort and happiness of pets. As pet owners, we are all that the animal has. They depend on us to take care of them. That's what we do. As pet lovers, Kimberly and Charles love knowing that the pets are safe, happy and loved. Kimberly has a special bond with animals, often having a shy, otherwise introverted dog or cat come right up to her, much to the amazement of the owner! Animals know who other animal lovers are. They can sense who's honest and who is genuinely comfortable with them. We have met so many wonderfully unique people, and we view them as extended family as well as the animals we care for. Watching a puppy, kitten or baby parrot grow up right in front of you is something magical and wonderful.

There's very few pet sitting services in my area. I've used Sherri twice now for pet sitting. She seems very nice and always arrives as scheduled. She also brought in my mail and watered the plants while she was there. Overall very happy with the service.

The sitting job has not started yet. Therefore this rating is based solely on my initial contact. I asked if I could go out to their house and see where Georgia will be staying. I took Georgia along as well. Sese welcomed me and took me into the kitchen and showed me the quite open space where Georgia, their own dog and any other guests would be free to play. It included the kitchen, a dining area and a large glassed in porch that opens onto a fenced back yard. Georgia immediately went exploring and got on well with their small dog and another dog who was there as a guest. The other two dogs appeared to totally at ease sith Sesi. Sese told me they would send us photos of Georgia while we are away. I feel comfortable that Jimmy and Sese will take good care of Georgia. I'll be able to write more after we return from our trip.

About

I have owned animals all my life and am a big animal rights advocate. I have loved horses since I could walk and dogs since I started breathing, as well as ferrets, prairie dogs, rabbits and birds. I have one dog and 26 exotic parrots at home now. My birds aren't pets but beloved family members and treated as such. I am the coordinator for Phoenix Landing and have been so for the past five years, so most of my sitting is with avian but will care for any pet as if it were my own. I can even let your family member speak to you over Skype for a small fee. I will also bird sit in my home, but you must show very recent vet papers. I am an Avian certified specialist, and I have my pet emergency first aid card from Red Cross. I'm also a certified First Aid Through Noah's Wish Foundation. I also do Avian behavior training and modification. Are you having problems with an aggressive parrot? Are there things that you wish your parrot would do like return to the cage, not be so cage protective, come out of the cage, etc? Maybe I can help for a small fee! I provide my services in Central VA. I also do photography. I can take photographs of you and your pet. I can also do weddings, sports games, or anything that you so desire. I can turn your photos into books, scrapbooks, key chains or other special memorabilia. I can also do panoramas of most anything. Realtors wouldn't you like to upgrade your ads to panos to attract those clients? I am not an expert with this or Photoshop but you will not be charged those crazy prices either. Please check my website out, and contact me.

About

Hi There! My name is Angie and I have just started Pet Sitting on a professional level. I work in a professional office during the day. So why pet sitting? Because of my passion for animals! I have a Yorkie and three cats that I never vacation or take over night stays because I simply cannot "board or kennel" them. They are my family and I want them to be able to be comfortable in their own home. That is my mission to provide reliable and stress free services to you and your pets! It will be like you never left! I am honest, reliable & trustworthy. I do have references if you would like to call them. I will pet sit all ages of dogs and cats (open to all other animals). I work & live in Glen Allen, so I will cover most of the Richmond area (Short Pump, Glen Allen, Richmond, Henrico and Goochland). I do pet sitting in your home only. (For special situation, I am willing to discuss. The price may be a little different depending on our agreement.) I can also administer medication if needed. I'd love to speak to you and set up a time to meet. As long as you are within a 20 mile radius of Glen Allen, my fees at $15/day. Anything outside that area will be negotiable. Thank you for taking the time to consider my services!

About

Hello, my name is Melinda. I love animals, they are my passion. I have been a pet sitter for over 12 years, providing care for 4 legged children in Richmond, Mechanicsville, Ashland and some parts of the southside area. I water plants, bring in mail, and I like to rotate the lights so it looks like someone is home, unless clients have timers for their lights. I walk the dogs, play with the cats, clean litter boxes, and medicate them if needed. If you need to get in touch with me please contact me at my0escape3 at aol com as I can't respond to requests thru this website.

About

WE are Midlothian's premier pet sitting and dog walking company. Our excellence does not come from what we say, but from what we do for your pet and for you while you are away. We do understand that all pets are not the same. Your small shitzu doesn't need to play fetch for hours for them to be tired, and your Australian Sheppard can't be completely exercised with just a short walk. That's why we customize the services that we offer to meet the needs of your pets. Any company can say how excellent their services are, but we would rather show you. But don't take our word for it, please call us and we'll provide you with a list of our satisfied customers who'd love to tell how great our service was for them. Unlike most pet sitting companies, we also offer a couple of care options for small animals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish. We are knowledgeable in running and maintaining a proper nitrogen cycle in your aquarium and how to get the proper temperature balance from your gecko's heat lamp. Leave all of it to us to take care for their specific needs. We will be happy to meet with you and help you find an amazing care option for your animal.

About

When you’re out of town, I will visit your animals, and walk, feed, water and play with them. I will also check and make sure the house is fine and nothing has happened. I can also do any daily house chore that is needed. I can also stay with your pets over night if they need constant watching or just need someone to sleep with. Even if you don’t have animals, I would be more than happy to just keep your house safe. I charge $20 per daily 30-minute visit and $50 dollars per night.
