WHAT CONSTITUTES AN EMERGENCY

  • You need service to begin within 24 hours.
  • If you need to get a message to or in contact with me immediately. 
  • If you are locked out and need us to bring you a key (this service is only offered 8 a.m.-8 p.m., and is not guaranteed).


WHAT I WILL DO IN AN EMERGENCY

If I encounter a pet or home emergency while you are away:

  1. I will try to reach you at the contact information that you have provided.
  2. If I am unable to contact you, I will try to reach your emergency contact person on file.
  3. If we are unable to reach anyone, I will decide on the appropriate action to be taken to protect and care for your pet and home.
  4. If it is deemed a health emergency for your pet, I will contact your vet or an emergency clinic and transport your pet if needed.

(PLEASE NOTE: There may be extra charges related to anything additional needed.)


EVEN PET SITTERS HAVE EMERGENCIES

Should I become unavailable, due to illness or an emergency of my own while your service is in progress, my husband or my sister (who is a professional caretaker herself) will step in and complete your service. If you are delayed or unsure of your return date, you may contact me and I will continue to take care of your pet(s) and home until you return.
