Our Pet Sitting Services

Whether work takes you out of town or keeps you at the office late.  Or, you finally have the opportunity to take that long-overdue vacation or even a simple weekend getaway, we are here to help.  We are happy to care for animals of all kinds and sizes, including reptiles, birds, farm animals, dogs, cats, and much more.

 

Caring for your pets in your Birmingham area or Huntsville area home is our primary mission.  With your help, we will identify what is required during each visit to ensure your furry, feathered or scaly family members are eating, exercising, and getting plenty of love while you are away.

 

Pet sits are time-based, and we offer an array of options to choose from.  We offer special discounts for clients who use us on a frequent, ongoing basis.  Contact us to see if you qualify!

 

If your pet requires special care, such as pill administration, injections, special physical provisions, or even reinforcement on current training activities, it’s included in the price.

 

Typical pet sits include potty break and clean-up, walk and/or playtime, feeding, water refreshment, relaxation, and plenty of affection!

Also included in our pet sitting prices are our standard home guardianship services, including:​​

  • mail collection

  • indoor and outdoor plant watering

  • light/blind/curtain rotation

  • security system management

  • temperature control
