about Mt Shasta Petsitters
The Mt Shasta Petsitters provide excellent care for your home and animals so you can travel with peace of mind. Our team of caring, experienced professionals love animals, live locally, and will give your home and animal companions the attention they deserve. Whether you are going to be out of town for a day, a weekend, or longer, the Mt Shasta Petsitters are ready to help. Mt Shasta Petsitters serve Dunsmuir, Mt Shasta, McCloud, Lake Shastina, Weed, and other areas of Siskiyou County.
Our average visit to your home lasts 30-60 minutes, and includes bringing in your mail, checking on the condition of your residence (temperature, security, lights, faucets), watering plants, and most importantly, caring for your animal companions. Once we have fed, watered and given affection to your animals, and waste is removed, we text you a photo update.
Need someone to watch your home, pick up the mail, water the plants, and make sure the pipes don't freeze? We've got you covered with daily visits. A member of our team will pop by every day to make sure that your home is safe and secure, whether you have pets or not.
If you have easygoing pets such as fish, caged animals, or house cats, a member of our team visits daily for feeding, socializing, waste removal, and house tending. We will bring in your mail, make sure your place stays cozy and safe, and give your animal companions 30 minutes of loving attention.
+Walk or Extra Time
For dogs or other animals that require outdoor exercise or extra attention, in addition to a daily check-in, a member of our team can take your pet for 30-60 minutes of outdoor adventure, or can stay for a longer visit. Please provide leash, collar, and clean-up bags for walks.
Some pets require more care than others, due to age, health, or personality. If you need someone to stay overnight at your home with your animal companion, a member of our team will arrive late in the evening and depart in the morning after household tasks.
If your pet requires administration of medications orally or via injection, a member of our team can provide this service when we visit. We have experience mixing medications into foods, using pill pockets, swiftly administering medication directly into the mouth, injecting medications, and administering subcutaneous fluids to keep your pet comfortable and healthy.
