have a strong belief that most people who seek high quality care for
their pets are honest and trustworthy. My experience so far has
confirmed this belief and thus allows more flexibility with time and
fees based on the honor system. A petsitter should
spend no less than 30 minutes with your pet while you are gone, not just
for taking care of basic needs but for giving a little extra love and
attention and to make them feel special when you can't be with them. "Short visits" at a discounted rate just isn't in
the best interest of your pet so I do not offer a quick "in and
out" service. My own conscience wouldn't allow it and in the
end I would be charging for a "short visit" while still
spending a full 30 minutes or more with your pet. So whether
it's the client or the petsitter who benefits by making more or paying
less, your pet will never be short changed. At least not while in

As with ferrets, birds fall into a
category of pets that require specialized care. They are also
susceptible to disease that can be spread by other birds and I have chosen
not to expose them to the risk and do not offer overnight care.
However, I DO love them very much, have large bird experience (African
Grey size) and would love to care for them in your home.
$25 overnight 1-2 cats
$35 overnight 3-4 cats
1 or 2 per client maximum* (See requirements)
$25-$35 (under 20 lbs)
$35-$50 (over 20 lbs)
I am committed to your dogs
well being as I am all animals in my care. However, because dogs
have a greater need for human companionship, I take great care not
to schedule more than one client at a time so that there is never any
competition for my time and attention. I am not a licensed kennel
and can provide overnight care for only a selective number of clients.
In what I consider to be a highly specialized field requiring a
special set of skills, ferret care takes on a life of its own.
This is one of my specialties and one I keep affordable. If you
want to know more about this service or make reservations, please go to Little
Dudes Ferret Camp or send me
pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, etc. Other acceptable pets

THE UNCOMFORTABLE ACCOUNTING
FEES These fees make me feel bad so please don't make me charge
them. Turning a love for animals into a business venture and
boundaries is not easy and it creates alot of guilt. These
type of fees are charged ONLY to reimburse for gas or other expenses
incurred on your behalf in good faith.
$15.00 Consultation/Key Pick-Up Fee. Fee WAIVED when you schedule a booking. Blame the rising cost of gas and other cost of living expenses for this one! Traveling around the city to meet with potential clients free of charge would quickly end my petsitting career.
$15.00 Key Drop-Off Fee (only if I have to make a separate trip for
that purpose or due to cancellation)
$10.00 Cancellation Fee. Last minute or if key has already been picked up. A key drop-off fee
may also apply.
$25.00 Returned Check Fee
10% Senior discount (65 and older)
10% Long term boarding discount (over 30 days)
10% for regular clients requiring ongoing scheduled daily or weekly
service (6 months or more)
Sliding scale for low income or others affected by the
economy. Please be honest and respectful so that I can continue
to provide this service to the community. ALL pets deserve good
care regardless of income level.
