Hi! I'm Sarah

For as long as I can remember, I've felt a connection to all animals; they are the purest creatures on this planet, and I find it absolutely amazing that we are able to walk alongside them throughout their lives.

 

With a Bachelor's in Women's Studies and a Master's in Nonprofit Management, I have worked in various professional IT roles throughout the years. I started pet sitting many years ago for friends and family as a side hobby and, in 2019, finally decided to make the leap, leaving my full time corporate position to pursue my passion for animal care. Over the past few years, I've been absolutely blessed with the most amazing clients, a wonderful, knowledgeable, dedicated team who my clients and I adore, and feel lucky every day to call this my job.

As a frequent traveler myself who has a beloved 19 year old kitty, Miss Pirate, I understand how important it is to know that your fur babies are receiving the same love as they would from you while you're away. Our team consists of a small but mighty group of dedicated, passionate, knowledgeable, certified pet care professionals who focus on safety, education, enrichment and professionalism, and who provide outstanding care while still having fun and giving plenty of cuddles to your beloved family members. So from dog walking to cat cuddles to medicine administration to litter box cleanup to plant watering to mail pickup, we're here to tackle all 'the things' so you can remain worry-free.

What Our Clients Are Saying

0I2A1197.jpg

'If I could give Sarah more than five stars I would! She's responsive, easy to communicate with, clearly loves animals and got to know our pets and their specific personalities, and sends great updates that give us piece of mind while we're away. We have a particularly tricky cat who hasn't gotten along with previous pet sitters, but Sarah is patient and excellent with animals and we all had a great experience! If Sarah and her team service your area, absolutely use them for pet sitting!' - Jessica Trivisonno, Cleveland, Ohio 2024
