"I have gone on multiple trips and needed someone to swing by to check on my cat, Luna. Southside Sitter took excellent care of Luna; making sure she had plenty of food and water, scooping dirty litter, and giving her plenty of TLC! I will definitely be using their services again in the future!"-One of our satisfied clients

A quick note about our pet sitting services:

All of the Pet Sitting Services provided by Southside Sitter LLC are conducted in the client's home.  We believe this provides the most stress-free care to the pets we are serving, since they do not need to be transported and are in familiar surroundings while their owners are away.  At this time, we are unable to sit pets in our home because we have pets of our own, and due to insurance guidelines.  Thank you so much for your understanding on this!

Quick Visit

A quick 20 minute visit with your pet.  Perfect for that midday potty break and a refresh of food and water.

30 Minute Visit

A 30 minute visit includes a potty break, refreshing food and water, along with some play time.  This visit could also include a small household task.

Overnight Visit
