 I am here to serve you by planning a CUSTOM plan of ATTENTIVE AND PAMPERED care for your pets while you are away. I want you to be rest assured that your home and pets are safe , secure and happy!

I am a Proud Portland Native that spent my early childhood in inner SE Portland and moved to North Portland to be the 4th generation to live in my grandmother's house in the University Park Neighborhood. I was the 3rd generation in my family to proudly attend Roosevelt High school before heading off to Eugene to become a Duck at UofO (I graduated in 1989) and there I first began house sitting and petsitting to earn extra money for school. Later when I returned to Portland in my early 20's I continued to house sit and pet sit for older friends who were traveling and one summer spent only 11 days in my apartment! I did this for several years. SO when it came time now in my life to earn money after difficulty finding a Social Services job, I decided after owning and operating Touchstone Coffee House from 1999-2007 I could embark on another personal business and opened GOTCHA COVERED Home & Pet Sitting Services By Becky Bilyeu! ***I currently am unemployed (other than Gotcha Covered services) as I find such great joy being with animals and the income is always helpful and supports me to pay my bills.

I grew up as the oldest of 4 girls and I have had at least one dog sometimes more, my entire life. I currently live with my sister and niece and they have two little dogs and one BIG cat! 

I am a photographer and love to photograph animals and take lots of pictures of the animals in my care. I also am a mixed media collage artist and a novice knitter.

I will be moving back to Portland 7/1/24 to live in the University Park/St, John's  neighborhood, However I will be looking for a low cost studio or one bedroom apartment to rent orI am also open to the possibility of renting a large room(s) to lay my head and do my art when I am not Petsitting.  Other than the animals in my life the other stars are my two nieces Grace age 25 and Harper age 15. Life is good as an Auntie!!

I love to walk, spend time at the ocean, do mixed media collage and make cards and other arts and crafts and travel when ever I get the opportunity. The highlight of my life was a solo trip I took to Bali in 2017.  It was Incredible. There I spent time with Elephants and it was life changing.I also spent the last year living on the Hilo side of the big Island where I also did petsitting.

I love all animals and find it a privilege and an honor to do the work I do. Thanks again for inviting me into your home and entrusting me to care for your animals and your home while you are away. I will treat them as my own. I look forward to hearing from you. 503-781-2779 Please call today to book your next petsitting or dog walking appointment!

* Why Me??? *

I am one woman owned and operated business. I have over 28 years experience caring for animals in the comfort of their homes. I am very happy to provide references.

What sets me apart is a natural gift to work with skittish animals and those dogs that are normally afraid to go towards people, if I sit quietly, they just on their own seem to approach me and often let me pet them, much to the amazement of their owners. I Love all sizes of dogs from Tea Cup's to Great Danes! I recently lost a Goldendoodle, Sophie  after 14 1/2 years, she was a Humane Society Rescue dog from a hoarding breeder, that left her with some OCD Quirketies, but she was as sweet as they come.  I really get my emotional needs met by being with the animals entrusted into my care. It is also good to note that a dear retired friend and a life long animal lover, is available to back me up if I am called away on a cat check in job, held up in traffic or if there is an Emergency. I also have a couple outstanding pet sitters with years of experience that I refer to for services and consulting when I am not available for booking. I do my very best to make sure your needs are covered if I am not available for a booking. GOTCHA COVERED!
