How Pet Sitting Works:

When you call or email Pets Are People Too, and would like to book, I will schedule a time to meet with you before you leave on your trip to go over the details necessary to care for your pet.

During this meeting you and your pet(s) can become familiar and comfortable with me. I will fill out a service agreement and obtain all your pet’s feeding and care routines and pick up your key.

Each pet sitting visit is 30 minutes and includes:

  • Pet feeding / watering and treats
  • Love and affection
  • Play and exercise
  • Simple medication administration
  • Pet waste clean up
  • Clean up of spillage in litter box and eating areas
  • Bring in newspaper and mail
  • Plant Care
  • Home security check

One visit per day is $23, two visits per day are $40, three visits are $55.

Rates include the care of 1-3 pets. Additional pets are an extra charge depending upon the animal and its needs. Please contact us for details at margaret (at)

Rates may vary with the level of care needed for your pet(s).

The holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor day are an additional $5 per visit.

Key pickup or drop off after the first consultation (if necessary) is $15.

Dog Walking (As Available)

Walks are done with your dog alone and take your dog's needs into consideration. After each walk your dog is given fresh water and his waste is cleaned.

Walks are $15 for 30 minutes.

Rates may vary with the level of care needed for your pet(s).

Overnights (As Available)

Overnight visits are from 9:00 PM to 9:00 AM and include all the services of the 30-minute visit plus your pet gets overnight companionship and care. In addition, your pet receives a 30-minute midday visit the day before or after the night visit. The fee is $75 per night.

It is recommended that you book as early as possible especially for holidays, but at least two days advance notice is required. To book call 408-278-9744 or email us at margaret (at) .
