Great Experience, 7/20/2014

I was worried about leaving my cat since he had just started getting insulin shots twice a day. My previous sitter was not comfortable giving him shots. I searched the internet and found Critter... Sitters. I was referred to Andera, which lived close by. She was wonderful. She even sent me text to let me know how my cat was doing. Now I can leave him and not worry knowing Andera will be there to care for him.

better than doggie daycare, 7/16/2014

Elisa at critter sitters was the best choice we could have made! She loves kozmo and took great care of him. She even assisted during emergencies! No daycare will care for your animal like she will.

Best pet sitter EVER!!

We have tried two different, more commercial and highly recommended, pet boarding facilities in the past, when our Bella was very young. We were exceptionally disappointed -- and then found Clare Anderson. Having Clare take care of Bella ensures peace of mind while we are away, and a fun, engaging time for Bella. She is excited when Clare comes to pick her up and comes home tired!! The interaction with other dogs and excellent care puts Clare's service as the ONLY service we would ever consider using. We have used Clare consistently for the past year or so and the service is reliable, consistent and we just LOVE HER (as does Bella)!!!!!!!!!

We have enjoyed working with Janet and the Critter Sitter team. Equally, we've found that Carol and the admin team work hard to ensure customer satisfaction and ease of service. We can see why Critter Sitters has won awards.

Alan Gordon is phenomenal

Alan was my pet sitter for over a year. He was absolutely wonderful with my dog, Buddy. Alan is extremely organized, efficient and was never late for scheduled visits. My dog had many health issues during the time Alan took care of Buddy, and Alan was so particular and diligent in following all the instructions for Buddy's care. Buddy was in wonderful hands with Alan. Some times I would be home when Alan arrived and Buddy would get so excited to see Alan. Alan has a very warm, caring demeanor and it comes across in his interaction with animals, too.

Flowery Branch area Critter Sitters

Glad we decided to try Critter Sitters. Our dogs get to stay in the comfort of their home instead of going to a kennel! We're happy and they are happy! Andrea does a great job taking care of our 2 canine kids!

Highly recommend

I have been using Ian Robbins with Critter Sitters for several years now and I can not say enough good things about him and the Critter Sitter service. It really gives me peace of mind that someone I trust is taking care of my fur child when I am away.

Critter Sitters' Clare Costello to the rescue!

Last Summer, one of my two cats became ill and now requires medicine twice a day. Traveling, or even taking a day trip weren't an option until we found Clare Costello. She has cared for our cats three times now and we are more amazed by her each time. First, she came over to learn the details of our home and to meet the cats. She is meticulous and thorough and truly loves animals. She spoils the kitties with toys and treats, so much so that they are often happier when we get home, than when we left them. Clare is responsive, reliable, and a total life saver. Most importantly, the peace of mind she provides is invaluable. Critter Sitters and Clare Costello are the best.

Only sitter we will ever use

When my wife and I are out of town Clare is the only sitter we will ever use. She has been our sitter for the last 2-3 years. We tried another sitter when we first moved to Atlanta that made sure Neko (our cat) got feed daily, but she always seemed a little skittish from her experience when we got home. Neko is always relaxed and in good spirits despite our absence whenever Clare cares for her. We often come home to find that Clare has not only made sure she was fed and had clean water and litter but she had also spent time playing with her and occasionally brought her a new cat toy. Clare is a pet person who will take amazing care of your pet while you’re away. There is no way I could say enough nice things about Clare. She has my absolute highest recommendation.

Pistol

My sitter Carol Barnes has been caring for Pistol for years right up until he recently passed away. Carol has given exceptional care over the years spending time playing with Pistol and helping to give him his medicine in more recent years. Carol also brings in the mail, keeps the bird feeders and baths full, as well as feeds the feral cats for me. Having health problems of my own, I never had to worry when I was away or unable to care for my little man. Carol came and took care of everything including buying his food and litter when I was unable to leave the house. I do not know what I would have done without Critter Sitter's Carol Barnes. She has become more than just our sitter. Carol has become a part of our family. I have just brought in two of the feral kittens from the yard with Carol's help I am hoping they will be my new companions. Thank you Carol!

Best in Town

I will never board my dogs anywhere again. Andrea will be our go to from now on! From the first time I met her, I could see her love for animals. My girls love her and I trust her. So glad I gave Critter Sitters a try.

Clare is amazing!

Clare Costello has been watching my 2 cats for just about a year. She has come on short notice, she has come multiple times a day when one of my cats needed medicine and most of all, she truly cares about my pets. While I hate leaving them, I know that she will take good care of them when I am gone. Many thanks, Clare!
