Services & Fees

We can visit your pets as many times in a day as you need. Cats should be seen at least once every 24 hours – twice if you like/need. Dogs, of course, need a minimum of 2 visits per day if you are out of town.

Pet sitters at Home But Not Alone Pet Care are bonded and insured. Please don’t ask us to share pet care responsibility with anyone (neighbor, friend, family, etc.) as it becomes a liability issue.

To give your house the lived-in look while you’re gone, the following are always included with out-of-town trips:

  • Bring in mail, newspapers, packages
  • Water Houseplants
  • Adjust curtains, blinds, lights, tv, radio
  • Trash and recycling to curb on appropriate day
  • And any special requests you might have; for example, filling your wild bird feeders, watering outdoor plants within reason

We can provide text or email updates to put your mind at ease.

30-Minute Visits – $27.00
We’ll walk your dog(s), clean the litter box, feed and water your pets, clean crates, administer oral meds and insulin injections, brush their coats, and give lots of love and rubs.

30-Minute Dog Walks – $27.00
We walk only your dog(s) in your neighborhood only

Get-to-Know-You Visit – $27.00
(then this $27 is applied as a credit toward your first service)
We come to your home to meet you and your pets. Paperwork is completed telling us everything we need to know about your furry, feathered, and gilled kids. You provide 2 keys so we are able to enter your house. If you allow us to retain your keys for future services, you will not need to pick your keys after service nor deliver them before the next service. We don’t leave the keys inside your house after the last visit since you may be delayed and then we wouldn’t be able to get back inside.

Interview
If you would like to meet us in person before you make a decision to hire, that visit is at no cost.

Charged for time and gas if you don’t have enough kitty litter, food, meds, etc. for the duration of your trip and it is necessary for us to purchase more; if your pet needs to go to the vet while you are gone, etc.
