A great place for your pets to play while you're away!

Your beloved dogs will have fun in our indoor and outdoor kennels with 30-foot runs. Your cats will enjoy lounging in the sunshine and scratching on their own posts.

For your peace of mind, we have designated areas for each type of large, small, and active pet. While your pet is with us, take advantage of comprehensive services from our certified dog groomer or experienced veterinarian.

Read What Our Clients Say

    We tried for over a year to heal the cut on Kodi’s foot. Nothing worked until we saw Dr. Venard, and he recommended acupuncture. It took 4 appointments in 4 weeks, and Kodi’s foot was completely healed. It was amazing! I would recommend this treatment for your pet.

    - Jennifer Faison

    We have boarded our 2 labs at Critter Sitters for the past 8 summers and have been extremely pleased with the care and attention they have received. Jamee and her staff do an excellent job making sure that your pets are well taken care of. We appreciate the job Jody does in the grooming of our labs. My wife and I are really appreciative of the care that our labs receive at Critter Sitters.
