Perfect for potty breaks, scheduled visits to feed pets, or for administering any topical or oral pet medications at designated intervals. Pets will get fresh water each visit in addition to focused attention, lots of affection and some playtime and/or a little exercise during these visits.

These visits also include a litter box cleanup for any kitties along mail-and-package pickups, rotating lights on or off, opening and/or closing the blinds or drapes and watering any plants as needed.

Please note: Due to liability concerns and each pet's well-being, TENDmyPet does NOT offer every other day service for any pet. TENDmyPet needs to visit a pet at least once every twenty-four hours to ascertain their water and food supply (as some pets like to tip over their water bowls, to ensure pet safety and to immediately address any potentially urgent veterinary care.

Extend-a-visit hourly fees are also only available with a booked overnight stay

After three pets, add $2 extra per cat and/or $3 extra per dog

Please note - if return is later than 1 pm on final day's stay, that night's fee applies. For example overnight care for weekend with a morning Saturday departure with a late Sunday return home, the total bill is 2 x $60 = $120

In-home overnight stays also include feeding pets at their scheduled mealtimes and preparing meals (with broth, meat, veggies, etc.) as per each pet's habits, routines and their owner's specifications. Only an owner's selection of treats are given out, if these are allowed. We are happy to water any plants, bring in mail and packages, scoop and/or change the litter box, cleanup pet waste (small yards) and place any garbage or recycling containers curbside for pickup. We will return trash and recycling containers to their proper storage location. At least once per day, we are happy to update pet parents with a text message on how their pet(s) are doing. Lots of affection and one-on-one attention for each pet is happily part of how we spend time with pets.
