WELCOME! PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE OFFER AND ANSWERS TO MANY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
Vicki's Pet & House Sitting is proud to be celebrating TWELVE YEARS in business! Our family-friendly, Christian based business brings to you mobile pet sitting, and tons of love and care to your pets in your absence.
We customize the care that you need - every family has different needs - so we come and meet with you several times (free!!!) and truly get to get to know you and your pets and your expectations. During this time you will also fill out paperwork and show us your home and where your pet's supplies are. This is referred to as a "Meet & Greet(s)".
Q: What exact services do you provide?
A: We will give your pets fresh water, food (when instructed to), and let your pet out for the bathroom( or clean litter pans) and play time. We will text you and provides pictures upon request during each visit.
Q: What type of pet sitting do you offer / how does it work?
A: We are a mobile pet sitter, we come to you! Your pet(s) stay in the comfort of their own home. The amount of times a pet sitter is needed depends on the need of each family and their pets. Some people hire us just for mid-day potty breaks to let their dog out while they work, and some people hire us just to cover a few visits for a weekend away, and others book us to go on vacation and need three or more visits per day. It truly is based on each family's needs.
Q: What types of pets do you care for?
A: I have personally owned and cared for almost everything you can imagine. I care for domestic pets, and exotics, farm animals, livestock and horses. (exceptions are snakes/scorpions - I will be glad to check them / water them for you - I generally don't take on "pets" that consider ME prey!). From goldfish to horses and most every pet in between!
Q: Will you house sit for me if I don't have pets?
A: YES!!!!! You do not need to have pets for me to watch your home.
Q: In addition to caring for the pets/home, do you offer other services?
A: YES!!! Included in pet/house sitting, we bring in your mail/newspaper, bring in/take out your trash (as needed), and we will bring in any packages that may arrive in the mail.
Q: What is your holiday fee / policy?
A: We do NOT charge extra for holidays!!! We never have! Holidays are NOT a time to gouge someone - it's a time to be spent with family!
And, it is first come, first served - always book with me in advance for holidays - it's one of the busiest times of the year!!!!
Q: What do you charge for an emergency visit? Or, what about a last minute booking?
A: We DO NOT charge extra for emergencies, or last minute surprises! They ARE subject to my availability, but I work closely with all my clients to try to ensure we can cover you and are flexible on times.
Q: Wait......you're telling me you don't charge extra for holidays, unplanned emergencies, or last minute bookings? AND you don't charge for Meet & Greets, ever?
A: Correct :) I was raised old school, and I try to never "nickel and dime" my clients.
Q: Wow. If you don't charge for any of that, then your pricing must be crazy expensive?!!!
A: Not at all !!! Most visits range from $25 - $30, with most average pricing at $26 - $28 per visit, depending on your location, and the amount of pets you need caring for.
Q: What type of payments do you accept?
A: Glad you asked!!! We accept cash, check, PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express and we also accept Venmo.
