Pet Sitting Services
Shannon’s Pet Sitting is able to provide a variety of Pet Sitting Services customized to your pets needs. All of our pet care services are provided in the pet owners home. This reduces stress put on the pet by allowing them to remain in their own environment and maintain their daily routine.
Please keep in mind that we are NOT a daily dog walking or day trip service. We provide vacation & out of town care for pet owners who will be out of town for extended periods of time.
