Pet Sitting Rates
Pet Sitting Rates
Prices subject to change
A FREE in-home consultation is conducted for all new clients prior to the start of service. This consult allows us to become familiar with you and your pet(s) as well as set up your customized services.
Any additional visits after the consultation are subject to the normal stop-by fee.
Shannon’s Pet-Sitting will collect a key to the client’s home during the initial consultation. A key is requested in addition to keyless entry methods in case the power goes out or the batteries should fail. It is suggested that the client allow us to retain the key safely in our possession in a secured lock box for future pet sitting needs.
If it is requested the key be returned to Client, it can left inside the locked secured home when we leave the premises (after a scheduled sit) or it will be sent certified mail. Since we do not have a store front, for the privacy & security of our own homes we do not allow pet owners to come to us to pick up or drop off keys.
ALL KEY PICK UP VISITS $15.00
ALL KEYS RETURNED CERTIFIED MAIL $10
We are happy to hold on to or make copies of keys to avoid future charges. All keys are kept in a secured lock box.
