Meet & Greet

FREE - Exotic Pet Pals will never charge potential clients for a Meet and Greet. This is a free consultation meeting for us to meet, to discuss your needs, fill out & sign client forms, and for the sitter to obtain house keys. During COVID-19, we do request that all people present at a Meet & Greet wear masks. Let us know too if you'd like to initially meet via Zoom where a lot of the Meet & Greet can be taken care of, leaving only a short in-person visit to meet the pets and obtain a house key. 

Pet Sitting

*Pet Sitting Prices are based on time, not per pet. If you have a lot of pets, or a special circumstance that will take us more than 30 minutes per visit to complete, then please be sure to discuss this with Sharon during scheduling.

Our pet sitting services is for all species of pets.

During our visit, we take care of all your pets' needs, including cleaning up any pet messes, so be sure to show us where the most common cleaning supplies can be found during the Meet & Greet. We will also check your mail, bring in newspapers and packages from your porch, water plants, and change lighting or blinds(only upon request). We will place your outdoor trash & recycle cans at your curb the night before collection, and return them after, upon request.

When you hire a professional pet sitter, your home is being cared for as well. Please be sure to lock all exterior doors and windows before you travel, and notify us if anyone else has been granted access to your home.
