    Jo Buckley has been taking care of my cat when I go out of town for over 5 years now. My cat loves Jo and is so much happier staying at home and being cared for by someone he knows. And knowing that I have someone I trust to pick up the mail and keep an eye on things while I'm away puts me at ease. I would highly recommend Jo and Critter Sitters to anyone in the area needing pet care.

    Their "Other Mother"
    edejaegher (1 review)
    11/08/2016

    I've owned pets my entire life, so of course I've needed sitters often. Our vet recommended Critter Sitters when we needed to hire a company since none of our friends or family were free to pet sit. We first used Critter Sitters a couple of years ago, and have ever since! We absolutely love our amazing sitter. Shannon is so incredibly sweet. She is patient with our pets (one is a bit shy but has come to love her), she was able to administer insulin shots to an elderly pet who needed insulin shots, and she's always takes her time with our loves. It's very safe to say that Shannon is our pet's "other mother." She loves them woke her own and has always gone above and beyond what I'd expect of her. She is incredibly amazing, and I'm proud to trust our animals to her care. I've referred all of my friends to Critter Sitters and of those who have hired them, they've all been happy! This company and its employees are THE BEST!!

    Taco loves his Critter Sitter!

    I recently found myself an empty nester and in a place where I needed to find someone to take care of my fur baby while at work. I found Critter Sitters online, called them, and had an interview that very day with Shannon. This lovely person, with whom my dog (and cat) now love and look forward to seeing while I am away, was hired that night and was able to start the next day. I have been extremely pleased with the flexibility of being able to change my schedule if needed and also last minute coverage when I'm held over at work. Shannon is professional, loves my dog, and I love the little notes left to report on their time together. I have been using her services since June and have nothing but great things to say. I don't know what I would do without Shannon to take my Taco out!

    We love Shannon, and more importantly so does Midnight. Since Shannon has been our sitter, Midnight is a different cat when we get home. In the past he acted as if he was starved for attention when we got home. Since Shannon has been his sitter he is calm and just seeks his normal level of attention.

    We've been using Patti from Critter Sitters for some time now. Our two dogs love her and get so excited when she shows up. I cannot recommend Patti McKenna and Critter Sitters more. Very trustworthy as well and so helpful even in an emergency.

    I couldn't imagine our life without Patti M. To take care of our girls while we are at work. Patti is so caring and I am pretty sure our dogs feel like they are a part of her family.

    Billie was all that I hoped for and more! She took excellent care of my babies, even going out of her way to look for the one that hides from everyone. You can tell that she is a true pet lover by the way she plays and talks to them and brings them treats and toys to draw them out. She is professional, courteous, and prompt. I would recommend her to anyone looking for sitter for a day or a month.

    Best Pet Sitter Ever

    Ms. Billie McDowell has come to our home twice in the last 6 months to watch over and feed our Elder Cat Jumping Jack Flash. We give her the absolutely highest recommendation as a pet sitter. Billie is really organized. She did a pre-sitting visit, was very thorough on finding out what Jack's idiosynchracies are, and as an Elder family member whose health can go up and down due to being FIV positive, he does need some extra observation. She learned about his habits and patterns, where his medicines were, what kind of food he liked, and where he liked his water dishes. She made sure she had emergency instructions. Billie took thorough notes of her interactions with Jack, and she sent us wonderful photos and videos of her interactions with him. This was very comforting for us, as we could judge for ourselves that Jack was comfortable and happy in Billie's care. So, when we had a family emergency and didn't now which end was up, Billie stepped into the breach and took care of our Jack again. She was quite flexible about our communications, since we were with a dying parent, and went above and beyond the call of duty to fit visiting Jack into her schedule. No one who has ever pet sat for us was as professional, thorough, and compassionate as Billie. She's a real star, in our opinion, and we have no hesitation about recommending her as a pet sitter. She is a true "animal whisperer." We are happy to make this recommendation for Billie.

    When I discovered that all my local relatives AND a trusted kennel were unavailable to care for my pets during a planned vacation, I was forced to look for a pet sitting alternative. I found Critter Sitters and now have a new FIRST CHOICE for pet sitting when I'm out of town! Carol promptly put me in touch with Billie in Douglas County. Billie was very professional and quickly put me at ease about entrusting her with my 2 dogs, 3 cats, and my home. She visited with my pets twice per day while we were gone and texted me with daily updates. When I arrived home, my pets were happy to see me, but didn't seem at all traumatized by my absence. Critter Sitters was definitely more economical than kenneling, AND my pets remained in the comfort of their own home. I had no feelings of guilt about leaving them in "jail" and I didn't have to worry about drop off and pick up times at a kennel. Total win! Critter Sitters, and Billie, were a golden find!

    She showed up when she said she would. She was very nice and showed genuine concern for my dog. I'm deducting a star on the rating because my security cameras showed that she smoked in my house. It doesn't bother me a great deal, but I must say that I was surprised that she would make the decision to do that. I didn't explicitly tell her not to smoke, although I do not smoke in the house myself, but I feel like it's a no-brainer to not smoke in someone's house even if they haven't told you not to do so. All that aside, I would still recommend this service and just tell them not to smoke inside next time. The cost was more than reasonable and they were reliable. Well worth the peace of mind.

    We had Kelley Stillman from Critter Sitter in Newnan come every morning to take care of our dog Bella while we were on vacation and she did an excellent job. She gave us daily updates on Bella including pictures and took extra time to let her back inside in the afternoons even though that was not even included in her job. It was the first time Bella ate her food every day while we were gone, and we felt at ease knowing that an expert was looking after Bella. She made sure she never stayed too long out in the heat and treated Bella as she was one of her own pets. We would recommend Kelley Stillman from Critter Sitters in Newnan to anyone who will be away and is looking for a responsible pet sitter.

    We have 2 cats, and the oldest is diabetic. Billie has experience giving insulin, and does a great job with our cats. She is very conscientious about spacing out her visits to keep the meals/insulin on a regular schedule. She always leaves a note letting us know what time she was there. We like and trust her, and will be using her in the future.
