* Services ~ Prices ~ Cancellation Policy *
Hello 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 prefer to to do IN-YOUR-HOME CARE 24/7 rather than drop in visits as I believe this gives the pets more company as I am typically home the majority of the time I am doing a job (I try not to be gone longer than 4 hours at a time if I am working with another client) and it keeps the animals normal routine intact.***( In addition, you get more of me and my time for your money. Drop in visits are available in inner NE/SE for $20-$25 per visit depending on location and needs at visit .
* I try to keep the house a little neater than when I got there and I always bring my own food ( unless food or a food allowance is offered) and clean up after myself of course. I pick up mail, packages, newspapers and meet any service or repair people needing to come in. I water plants indoors and out if needed. I also like to leave a little token or surprise for family members when I leave or surprise you while you are away with a text photo of your pet to send you a little LOVE from home!
RATES: Typical for inner East side of Portland Metro area is $65 ( HIGH MAINTENANCE HOUSES: large yards with excessive watering, yard care, large poo clean up, Extra outdoor critter feeding filling of more than one bird feeder ,piles of dishes left in the kitchen sink and other extreme mess. I am happy to to keep your home neat and tidy and pick up after myself, however if I am left to stay in a messy house I can't help but clean it and I would like to be compensated for that work. PETS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS : meds, high energy behavior and need more walks, aggressive behavior, incontinence, puppy training, will cost $5-$10 additional per day to be determined this is because these behaviors require a lot more work on my part than a typical average pet sitting job.(sliding scale is available on an an individual as needed basis) for first two animals (cat or dog), each additional animal is $5 (or to be discussed). *Inner West Side or Vancouver or Outer East Gresham starts at $70 a day for two animals because this is out of my home area and with increasing traffic I spend a lot more time on the road in increasingly heavy traffic driving to and from any appointments I may have.
***(Meal allowance and Gratuity Tip are optional, not expected but ALWAYS GREATLY APPRECIATED!)***
***ALL HOLIDAYS ARE CHARGED AN ADDITIONAL $10.00 per day
