Est. 1983. 10% Discount Offered for First Time Clients!

IT USED TO BE that when pet owners went on vacation or took business trips, they were forced to utilize the services of a boarding kennel, a friend or neighbor, or the local vet's office. Enter PET-TENDERS®--- a proven, cost-effective alternative to all of the above. PET-TENDERS®, one of the first pet-sitting services in the U.S., was founded in July 1983 by Cheryl Dagostaro to provide discriminating pet owners with peace of mind. The company has been featured on TV (The Travel Channel), radio and written about in national/international newspapers, books and magazines. Clients can depend on PET-TENDERS® for feeding, dog walking, brushing, litter box/yard/cage cleaning, administering medication as directed, and above all…SPOILING…all in the comfort of your OWN home! Four to ten days before a trip, the pet-sitter meets with the client to complete a comprehensive questionnaire and to provide recommendation letters from satisfied PET-TENDERS® clients.
