What TPS Clients have to Say

Testimonials for The Pet Sitter, LLC are also available on Angie's List.

I first met Jan when she joined the New Mexico Bird Club (NMBC) in 1997. I have always found her to be professional and dedicated in all of her endeavors be that handfeeding baby cockatiels or managing portions of the NMBC show and marts. On occasion she has taken care of my parrots and dogs. I was happy, the birds were happy, and the dogs were spoiled.
- Janet G

We appreciated the peace of mind. Jan cared for our two dogs while we were on a two-week vacation. One of our dogs was older and required extra care. Jan didn’t just care for our dogs, she gave them as much (maybe more) love and attention as we give them. What a relief to find someone responsible, reliable, and caring to take care of the other half of our family.
