Pet Services

As most pet owners, you consider your pets FAMILY! This is why you are looking for a pet sitter rather than sending them off to a kennel or leaving them alone for extended periods of time. You will have so much peace of mind leaving them with someone who will love them just as you love them.

Prior to the first service, I will conduct an initial consultation with you and your pets. This lets me get acquainted with you and your pets and ensures your comfort in having me take care of your precious fur babies. All pets must be healthy and up-to-date on all shots. All pets must be free of ticks and fleas. If you are leaving your pets overnight, you will come to my home with your pets to make sure they are fine with my two small breed animals and you are satisfied with the accommodations.

In home visits: Each visit is approximately a 1/2 hour to an hour.  We’re not one of those fly in/fly out services.  Services includes outside play time, feed and water as instructed, walks, brushing, medication, pick-up after pets, and lots of love.  We secure the home, open/close blinds or drapes, turn lights off/on, pick up mail and newspapers, and take the trash out.  You decide how many visits a day and when. 

Don't like leaving your pets at the groomers all day waiting to be groomed, and then even longer until you get off work? We'll drop off your pets, pick them up, and deliver to you. If you can't get them till after work, we will take care of your pets until you arrive.

Overnight stays are great. I have two small breeds pets that will love to have company while you are away. Any length of time, up to three pets.

In-home daily visits: $22 per visit.
Per day care: $25 for 6-7 hours then $5/hour thereafter
Pet transportation to and from groomers/vets: $18 per round trip.
Wait Services: $18 per hour
Overnight stays: $35 per day and $6 for each additional pet.

In-home Wait Services & Relocating

Need help moving to SW Florida? We can take care of the details while you concentrate on your new job or family.

Here's how it usually goes:

"We'll send someone over tomorrow sometime between 8am and 1pm." Fantastic! Now you have to take part of the day off, use your personal time, or take a vacation day just to wait for the cable guy or the repair technician. Your time is much more valuable than just sitting and waiting.

Have us wait at your house instead and save your vacation for a
real vacation. We will wait for any deliveries and appointments with telephone, cable, repair and utility companies. We can handle any hotel and car rentals before your move and provide you with a list of service providers in the area (doctors, dentists, nails, hair salons, spas, car repair, etc) as well as the directions to get there. We are here for anything else you may need.

Senior Assistance

Sometimes we become caregivers by choice. Other times it shows up unexpectedly and finds us. Either way, having the support you need is key to maintaining your emotional and physical health. For many seniors, the ability to remain at home for as long as possible is a high priority. My service enables seniors to maximize their independence to cover specific areas of assistance. All of this begins with one very important item, conversation. We will visit via email, phone, Skype, or in your own home. Need to get to an appointment? We will pick you up, wait for you, and then bring you home. When necessary we will work with other organizations to get you the help you need.

Our concierge services provide transportation, errand, shopping, and sitting for senior family members, as well as companionship. We also provide organizational services, holiday planning and teaching seniors how to use computers, cell phones, internet, and tablets.
