What does Tate’s Creek Pet Sitting do? 

I visit your home and care for your home and pets while you are away from the house. This includes feeding/ fresh water, cleaning bedding or litter, administering medication (including shots), dog walking/playing, and of course love and attention. I also take care of your house, doing things like picking up mail, putting out trash, watering potted plants, etc.  I will update you with texts, photos, and videos of your pets. With just a phone call, I can come to your house in an emergency to let your dogs out.  TCPS IS NOT A KENNEL. I DO NOT BOARD ANIMALS AT MY HOME. 

What kind of animals do you care for? I care for most small animals.  I’m especially experienced with cats.  Dogs of all sizes are welcome; however, large dogs must be leash trained (if I’m to walk them) and well behaved.  Guinea pigs, hamsters and other pocket pets, reptiles, birds, and fish are all welcome, and small farm animals like chickens, goats, rabbits, mini horses, and donkeys are fine too. No spiders.

How much does it cost? 

I charge by the visit.  The cost of your visit will be assessed according to your location. Clients who live more than ten minutes drive from my house pay a few dollars more per visit, because of the extra drive time involved.  See my “Rates” page for a list of all rates and the areas included.
