Pet Sitting

Purrfect Pet Sitting, LLC provides professional in-your home pet care that goes far beyond filling a bowl up with food. The goal is to provide genuine, dependable pet care from someone you can trust. After all, you are leaving behind two things that are very important to you, your pet(s) and your home.

We strive to develop relationships with the pets in our care.  By having the same person visit your pet each time we get to know your pets routine, their quirks and their personalities which makes it much easier to identify any potential problems should they arise.  Your pets will look forward to a visit from their friend, the pet sitter.  Many times we get feedback from clients saying they think their pets are disappointed when they come home because their visits with the pet sitter were so much fun!

Established on August 4, 2000, Purrfect Pet Sitting, LLC is distinguished as the first professional pet sitting service in Rensselaer County.
