The Springs Apartments team believes that our residents deserve to enjoy the unconditional love of a pet. Sharing your apartment home with a precious dog or cat provides you with priceless joy and companionship.
While you would probably love to have your pet with you at all times, obligations and commitments sometimes require you to be away from them for one or more days. Choosing a responsible and attentive pet sitter is a major consideration.
Here are a few sources in the San Antonio area that offer professional, qualified pet sitting services.
1. Throw Me A Bone
Staff members at Throw Me A Bone undergo a rigorous selection process, including a background check, before they are approved. They will make arrangements to stay overnight if your pet has anxiety or health issues. Even when you're home, they will shop for supplies or take your pet to appointments.
2. Cathy's Critter Care
The owner of Cathy's Critter Care is a former employee of the San Antonio Zoo and holds a degree in biology. Her experience enabled her to write a book about starting a home-based pet sitting service. She also operates Bluebonnet Bunk'n Biscuit, a luxury full-service boarding facility.
3. Snuggle Foot Dog Walks & Pet Care
Snuggle Foot Dog Walks & Pet Care is part of the only nationwide network whose franchise owners are all certified in pet CPR and first aid. In addition to cats and dogs, they provide services for a variety of other pets including parrots, rabbits and reptiles.
4. Bed & Biscuit Pet Care
Pet sitters at Bed & Biscuit Pet Care all have extensive personal and professional experience in caring for animals. They have worked as wildlife caretakers and veterinary assistants as well as fostering shelter pets.
5. Four Paws Pet Sitting
Four Paws Pet Sitting understands that your pet is a family member, but can't always be cared for by another family member. Their goal is to provide the same loving attention that you would give.
All services offer a meet-and-greet where you and your pet can get to know the potential sitter, giving you peace of mind that your pet is in good hands while you’re away. You can also contact the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (856-439-0324) or Pet Sitters International (336-983-9222) for more professionally certified pet sitters in your area.
