Pet Sitting

…. Annie was also the “girl next door” whom neighbors and friends called upon to watch their animals.

There’s no place like home – you now can have peace of mind when you need to be away knowing your beloved family pets can be well cared for in their own environment, where they are most comfortable. Annie of All About Services will come to your home to provide high-quality, personal, customized care so your pets have daily companionship, sleep in their own bed, keep their regular feeding and exercise schedule, have playtime with their favorite toys and avoid the stress and anxiety of a boarding kennel. Your pet’s health, happiness and well-being are Annie’s priority, as is the security of your home.

Annie’s forte is primarily cats and dogs, though there have been the occasional fish, bunny, chicken, and bird. She prefers to leave the reptiles to the experts in that field. She has always loved animals. Her first was a stray kitten who showed up when Annie was 6…she and her sister begged to keep the kitty. It took 10 days, but their Father gave in and fed this beautiful little kitty. Little did he know, she’d been getting a daily feast already as they snuck food out to her daily! Rosie, lived a long and wonderful life of 18 years, being dressed up, going for rides in a baby pram, following Annie everywhere she went whether it was to school, or the park or to a friend’s to play.

How many visits do I need per day?

The following are recommendations by Veterinarians….

  • Dogs: 3 visits/day to allow elimination and avoid stress and to reduce creating UTI risk or other problems; If they have a doggy door that allows all-day/night access, 2 visits may be sufficient for older dogs; 3-4 visits per day are highly encouraged for puppies
  • Cats: 1-2 visits/day; my policy requires a minimum of 1 visit per day; minimum of 2 visits per day recommended for kittens

Are you licensed?

Yes, All About Services by Annie, is a licensed business, bonded, and insured which requires a background check and is renewed annually. This assures and protects you as well as Annie.

Why a service agreement?

To ensure I have all necessary information to care for your home and pets, permission to be in your home in your absence, and authority to contact others in your behalf in the event of emergencies. It also is an agreement that you have read and understand and agree with my terms and conditions, as a service provider.

How do I pay you?

Checks made to All About Services is the preferred form of payment. Cash is welcome also.

  • New Clients- Full anticipated payment at time of initial meet-n-greet
  • Established Clientele- 50% deposit is required at least 7 days prior to first visit
  • To avoid forfeiture of payment/refund in event of cancellation, 7 day notice or 30 day notice for holiday coverage is required.
  • Credit Card payment not available at this time.

What is your cancellation policy?

Though life happens and plans change, I rely and plan on your business as income once scheduled and will likely turn away other business due to my commitment to you. Because of this, a 7 day cancellation prior to my first scheduled visit is required to avoid forfeiting your deposit. 30 days required for the major holidays.
