My husband, George and I, started this business after needing pet care for our Akita, Sheila, and two cats, Ching and Scooter, due to an out of town family emergency requiring us to leave town quickly. Our pets are like are family and they usually travel with us. Due to the extreme nature of this situation, we were unable to take them with us. It was the middle of spring break and all the kennels in town were full. Luckily, we found a pet sitter who made special trips to our home on short notice to take care of our babies. From that moment on, we knew this business was for us. We love all pets...BIG and small...dogs, cats, reptiles, fish, whatever it may be. Pet Lovers Pet Sitters was created to fill that need for everyone who loves their pets and wants the best care possible for them when their owners are unable to do it themselves.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all our clients whether it be two legged or four legged.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best care possible.
We specialize in the areas of Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze to Holley By The Sea. Further distances will require additional costs due to cost of fuel.
Please call to make an appointment for initial client consultation. At this meeting, you will meet with my husband, George or myself to discuss your pet care needs, the service contract and emergency vet form. Please have emergency contact names and phone numbers as well as vaccination records available. A rabies certificate is required. Please be sure let us know if there are any health concerns for your pets. At this time, please have 2 keys available for us (one for the office and one for the sitter.)
Please be advised that we do not sit for vicious pets. If your pet is vicious upon arrival or becomes vicious during your absence, you will be notified and other arrangements will have to be made.
The approximate rate for the particular services that you will require will be quoted over the phone. The rate varies between $15 (a 30 minutes visit which includes a 15 minute leashed walk or run in your neighborhood, feeding, watering, litter box scooping and basic home care) to $20 (a 30 minute walk or run plus feeding, watering, litter box scooping, and basic home care) per visit. Or if you prefer, for $15 per visit we will provide a 30 minutes visit with playtime in your home or yard, feeding, water, litter box scooping and basic home care. $10 per visit for pet turnouts which are available during the middle of the day. This is simply letting your pet out to do his or her business and placing them back in your home. This service is great for puppies or clients who expect to work long hours. The rate will be finalized during the initial consultation and will be based on the number of pets you have and the amount of work that will be required, additional charges may be applicable.
On holidays (Easter, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas) we will make a.m. and p.m. visits only in order to spend time with our family.
