In Your Home Drop-In
Pet Sitting Service
Naperville Pet Sitting is temporarily closed for business as of July 29, 2020.
COVID-19 Information- Updated 7/20/20
No one else can be in the home while pet sitting services take place. So if someone else will be staying at your home while you are away, service can not be accepted. Exception is if that person will not be there during the scheduled time of service. New clients: An initial "no charge" meet and greet must take place 3 days before service is to begin. Humans must wear a mask and social distancing measures will be in place. Meet and greets will be limited to 15 minutes or less.
You may cancel without penalty during these times.
Cats, Birds, Fish, Rabbits, Rodents, Frogs, Lizards, and Turtles. Max of up to two visits per day.
(As of July 2020, not accepting any new dog vacation clients)
Please scroll for rates after reading this important information.
All animals MUST be non-aggressive or have never shown any aggression towards humans in the past! Can administer medication to tolerant pets only.
Naperville Pet Sitting is not a boarding/kennel facility. I make up to two visits to your home a day. No overnight care provided at this time.
New Clients Only: An initial "no charge" in person meet and greet must take place before caring for your pet(s). This must be done no later than 3 days before service is to begin. Will not provide service for last minute care without meeting the pet(s) first. Once established as a client, you will not need another meet and greet moving forward unless something has drastically changed and must be shown in person. Any other meet and greet needed beyond the initial one, will have a charge of $15.
Payment is due in full on or before the date service begins.
Entering your home: Please provide me with a key or keypad code. Consider leaving your key on file if you will be using services often. Key pick up/drop off will have a fee of $10 each time beyond the initial consultation. Also can arrange for key to be hidden on property.
Cancellation Policy: During Covid-19, you may cancel without penalty.
You may cancel service up to 48 hours before scheduled care is to begin, after this, a $25.00 penalty will be charged. No refunds will be given once service has already started for cancelling remainder of visits.
Holiday Fees: Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day. $15 per visit in addition to normal rate.
I will not job share with another pet sitting company you hire, your neighbor, family, or friends. When job sharing takes place it is difficult to know what care was done with your pets already. It also becomes a liability and insurance will not cover any incidents or accidents. During the pandemic, this is also a big safety and health risk. Thank you for your understanding!
Its highly recommended that you schedule at least 1 visit per day for Cat Care. Its true cats can be independent, but there are many factors why you should have someone check in on them daily. They can run out of food or water. If they become ill or hurt, they may have to suffer longer because no one was there for a while. If you choose not to do daily visits, Naperville Pet Sitting will not be held liable and you must sign an additional waiver.
Outdoor Cats: If your cat is an indoor/outdoor cat, I can not guarantee I can care for them properly. I will not be held liable for their health and safety. This is why I prefer while you are gone, that they remain inside during length of care. If you have an indoor/outdoor cat, they must be up to date on their vaccines.
Indoor Only Cats: Exposure to other animals and dangers is minimal if any, and no proof of vaccines is required.
For all pets I will be caring for, if they have any health issues please list those on the Health form that will be provided to you.
