Excellent service! Highly recommend! In Dec. 2021 our pets (2 cats, 1 small dog) were cared for. Three times per day for 5 days Mary Jo came into our home and checked on all pets. She then took a picture of each fur baby then sent us the picture with a brief, yet descriptive of how all we’re doing.:) She even walked our dog 3 times/ day. Pic’s of that were included so we know our doggie was truly getting walked. Her price can’t be beat for all she does ($68/day). She is insured which is also a trusted bonus! We would certainly use her service again!!

Everything was perfect. The cats were happy and everything was done as I asked. I would only use this service in the future.
Description of Work
This was the first time that I used this service. I needed someone to bring in newspapers and mail, and to take care of my three cats while I was on vacation. I met Debbie about a week before I was to leave and I was immediately impressed with her. Her personality is welcoming and you can tell that she knows and loves animals. While I was away, Debbie kept me up-to-date about the cats. The cost was $16 per visit

Everything was so great! It made our vacation much more enjoyable knowing our older, persnickety pets were being well cared for.

Provider came to our home every other day to feed, water, and clean sandboxes and give one cat medication. Provider spent time giving love and attention to our animals, and cleaned up after our EXTREMELY MESSY kitties!

It's immediately obvious that Mary Jo and her team are true pet lovers. In fact, I'm always surprised that my cats go to her immediately; usually they need time to warm up to a person. I asked Mary Jo to spend the same amount of time with my cats as she would walking and caring for a dog, so in addition to feeding and medicating them and scooping the litter, she gives them some love and attention while she's here. I very much appreciate the notes she leaves me, telling me how things went and sometimes an anecdote about something cute one the cats did! I'm so grateful that I never have to worry about" my girls" when I'm out of town, and I definitely recommend this company.

Mary Jo has been our Pet Sitter for the past two years. When we first moved here, I was very concerned about who I would let into our home, and care for our kids in fur coats. Mary Jo came by for an initial visit and then also had references to call. She is very dependable, professional and reliable. We have 3 senior cats, and I trust Mary Jo to take care of them. She has had to administered medications to two of our cats, which she great care to do correctly! She also makes the house looked lived in, by bringing the mail and newspaper in. I highly recommend Dependable Pet Sitter.
Description of Work
Mary Jo comes to our house twice a day (at our request) when we are gone. She feeds the cats, refills their water bowls, scoops the litter, plays with the cats, gives medication, feeds the fish, brings the mail and newspaper in and even watches for packages and brings them in. She is willing to water house plants. Mary Jo has kept a key to our house (she ask if you want to do this) and all I have to do is give her a call, and I know she will be here when we are not!
