Meet the Sitters

Our pet sitters are lifetime animal lovers, have pets of their own, are active volunteers for and/or operate one or more animal rescues, as well as have a wealth of knowledge in pet ownership,training and nutrition. Furthermore, our pet sitters are experienced with dispensing basic medications to pets and are American Red Cross™ Pet First Aid\CPR certified.

  • Unlike many local and national pet sitting businesses, our pet sitters are not hired from “Help Wanted” ads. We only work with individuals that we know and trust.
  • We respect each of our pet sitters for the work they do in animal rescue and within their own animal rescue organizations. We personally invited each of them to join our service.
  • Our pet sitters are not hourly employees; rather co-owners of or independent contractors with ACPS - each with a vested interest in the quality of the service they provide.
  • Learn more about each of our pet sitters by visiting their individual bios below (more bios to come as we grow our service area).
