Hi, I am Sarah! I live in the St.Louis area and am a Pet-Sitter for St.Louis County Residents. The pets I will care for are your ever so common cats & dogs, but also, farm animals and exotics.
If you are here then you either found me online, I gave you one of my cards, or a friend referred you. And ANY of those reasons are awesome. I am super excited you would like to work with me.
You probably want to get to know me first, since I will be caring for your little babies when you can't be home, and go over all of the services I can offer you.
Please download these two forms so you can have them ready for our meet-up or you can have them ready when I come for the first visit.
I am a 35 year old, mother to one adorable toddler (Emily) and a sweet ten year old Beagle (Zoey). All my life I have been an animal lover and have experience with just about every type. Dogs and cats have always lived with me, but at this time, all I have is Zoey. Had a few neighbors growing up that had little farms, so I have up close and personal experience with farm animals.
Additional experience with animals:
As I got older I wanted a little mini farm of my own and have had:
SO, I am open to caring for whichever pet you may have. As a pet owner I know how nice it is to be able to have someone you trust to care of your babies while you take time for yourself or have to be at work, so I hope I can be that person for you!
***Caring for plants is something you can add to the list- I will water, adjust lighting, trim, etc.
I cannot do overnights, but I can do up to a few visits a day, depending on your pet, and am willing to do more than just cats and dogs. Below is a list of my fees for my services, and also a form to print out with questions about your pet to bring along for your meetup.
If you are wondering what a meet-up is, it is a chance for us to meet face to face and make sure that you and I both are comfortable working with each other.
Special Need Pets:
If you have a pet with special and particular needs, I have to be sure I am comfortable doing what I need to (for example, I am pretty scared of spiders, but would totally consider taking care of your tarantula while you are away on vacation. Would just need to see exactly what they needed to be sure I am comfortable with that:).
- cats: $15 per visit (bring in mail, clean litter box, food/water, play, petting:)
- dogs: $20 per visit (bring in mail, with a walk, but will check food/water, clean up accidents, play, and snuggles:) $25 per visit(with a RUN, check food/water, clean up mess and or accidents, and snuggles.)
- Farm animals– price will depend on amount of animals and duties involved. No species excluded! Free meetup, so we can discuss all details (including my estimate) then.
- Exotics– price will depend on number of creatures plus duties involved. No species excluded! Free meetup, so we can discuss all details (including my estimate) then.
Days I am available all day are Sundays through Thursdays; Friday and Saturday are still an option but are more limited with my schedule. Contact me with questions. Thanks!
