pet sitting

YK Sitter provides in-home care to your home and pets, plain and simple. This means our sitters travel to our client’s homes to care for their pets. You can customize how long you would like your pet sitter to visit with your pet(s). And don't worry - We will also bring in the mail when requested, take out the trash, rotate the lights, and open and close the curtains to give the home a lived-in look. While most of our clients are cat and dog owners, we also love to care for rabbits, birds, frogs, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, iguanas, and more!

Before beginning services with us, new clients are required to complete a complimentary initial consultation in your home, so that we're able to properly meet your pet(s), learn his/her routine, and get to know you a little bit better! More on that here.

"My experience with Cameron began in the fall of 2014 when she would pet sit my five, yes, FIVE, animals, while I was away working shift work for two weeks. They say animals know good people, and if that is true, then Cameron is good people. My four dogs and one cat loved her because she provided them the same kind of care as a real pet owner. This became evident very early on when after only a couple rotations she had to give me the heartbreaking news that one of my dogs passed away. If you’ve ever lost a pet, you know that it’s hard to accept and have a million questions – especially when it’s sudden and unexpected. The one question I didn’t need an answer to was if he was happy before he passed. He was loved by Cameron as much as he was our family. From personal experience, I can tell you how rare that is to find."

"My cat Billy Snertz, the handsome black & white cat in the photos, is happy and healthy after being cared for several times by YK sitter. He gets excited when he sees Cameron at the door now! I'd definitely recommend YKSitter to friends or family!"
