Got pets? Are you going on a trip? Are you working long hours? Do you need someone to walk your dog(s)? If you answered "Yes" to "Got pets?" and any other question, give serious consideration to calling a Pet Sitter. Most Pet Sitters can and will take care of your pet(s) in any of these circumstances.
What is a pet sitter? Pet Sitters, sometimes spelled petsitters, are most often people that love animals so much that they want to work with pets as a business.
Many local Pet Sitters go to the pets' house. This way your furry, feathered or reptilian family members can stay in the comfort of their home. All cats, rabbits, birds and most dogs love to be in a familiar area. If your dog(s) has separation anxiety or likes being around other dogs, then choose a kennel, a dog "day care" or a "pet spa."
Now you might wonder how and/or where to find a pet sitter. One place to look is under Pet Sitting and Exercising in the Yellow Pages. Another idea is calling local pet supply stores and asking if they know of any Pet Sitters. The third choice is to read this article and the next four or more because each will profile Evansville, Indiana area pet sitters. First, here is one of at least three pet sitters in Owensboro and Daviess County, KY.
Love Your Pet
Sharon Emby Tiahrt, owner/operator
Sharon goes to client’s home and visits the pet(s) twice a day. She charges about $50 for one to fifteen pets. If the job requires a lot more work, she may charge more. However, she will work with you if you can't afford the $50.
Sharon is not a member of any pet sitting organization [they all charge high fees], but she is a member of ASPCA, PETA, and the Humane Society to which she often donates money.
