"Dear Pet Sitters: You have been taking care of me since I was a tiny pup. I was a little scared when my mom and dad would leave, but I always felt better when you came to take me out. My mom and dad like you because you always come when I'm lonely and take me for "walkies" and give me treats. I was a little sad when my mom told me that I wouldn't see Mark anymore; we were very good friends. But now Cindy takes me out and she's very nice to me; I like her a lot. Thanks for taking care of me! Love, Murphy"

"Thank you, Pet Sitters. Lynn is wonderful! We never worry while we are gone because we know our cats are getting the best care Lynn can provide. We would never consider switching."

C.H. [Schaumburg, IL]

"When we brought our Wheaten Terrier puppy home, my husband and I desperately needed a pet sitter who was trustworthy and reliable to care for our new "baby." We hired Pet Sitters of America and it has provided us with excellent dog walking service ever since. The dog walkers are well trained, kind and dependable and Sandy and Chuck (owners of PSA) are always willing to give advice when we experience terrier troubles."

"Our Wheaten is an important member of our family, and we wouldn't entrust his care to just any pet service. That's why we continue to choose Pet Sitters of America."

M.W. [Glencoe, IL]

Pet Sitters of America gives me peace of mind that my babies will be given the same attention and care that I provide for them myself. For someone who travels a lot, that assurance is priceless. Bonnie has been a consummate professional, even when my birds have been a little bad tempered. Bonnie handles them perfectly. Thanks!

T.J. [Lake Bluff, IL]

I truly do not know how many years I have used The Pet Sitters of America. Although I no longer call upon them on a regular basis, I always know they will take care of my little dogs whenever I have to leave them for more than five hours. I have watched the organization almost since it began and I have been extremely impressed with its dedication to professionalism. I now have two new longhaired Dachshunds -- Cosette (Cozy) and Coquette (Coco). When my sixteen-year-olds -- Mimosa and Mariko died, Sandy and her group grieved with me. Immediately we began to love and care for our new pups.

Cocoa is our 16-month old chocolate Labrador Retriever and if you know any labs then you know she is still very much an active puppy who loves people, exercise and chewing! Betsy has been walking her 5 days a week since Cocoa was just 3 months old. She rescues Cocoa from boredom and loneliness in the middle of the day. Betsy provides that extra attention and exercise she truly needs. We have seen the boisterous, warm welcome Betsy receives from Cocoa - it is true love! Betsy helps us all enjoy life with Cocoa to the fullest! Thank you Betsy for everything!

The S. Family [Deerfield, IL]

How nice to know that when I leave town my "babies" are cared for so well - all in the comfort of their home. Knowing that makes it much easier to leave town and actually not worry about them. Now the only problem you need to solve is how do I stop missing them? Thanks!

B.M. [Lake Forest, IL]

Thank you for your outstanding pet service. We enjoyed our son's wedding in San Diego all the more knowing Aspen was under good care. Bonnie went above expectations and I am ever so grateful. We look forward to our next trip, Bonnie and Pet Sitters of America. Again, thanks ever so much.

The H. Family [Mundelein, IL]

We are new residents in the neighborhood and while planning our vacation we worried about our 11-year old cat, Justin. We were looking for a reliable pet loving person who would take good care of him. Fortunately, we got a big help from The Pet Sitters of America. They sent us Laurie, a caring, dependable professional who loves our "little companions." She did a wonderful job! Coming back we found Justin in good shape and we are very grateful to all the people of PSA for their dedication, quality service and willingness to help. Thank you very much!

V.K. [Libertyville, IL]

We like Pet Sitters because they offer a complete and convenient service. Our cats Billy, Cali, Sabby and our cockatiel, Opus, get to stay in the comfort of their own home and have someone care for their needs while we are away from home. Aside from needing to be fed, our pets need lots of attention, play time, and in Billy's case, medication everyday. In addition, the little things such as picking up the mail and watering the plants, are such a big help. I also look forward to reading the notes left by our pet sitter, telling us of the happenings while we are gone. It's just nice to know that when we are away, a trustworthy pet lover comes to take care of them and does a great job.

Dear Pet Sitters: I am Bailey the ?-year Yorkie Poo. I can't reveal my age as I am female. I love Daddy and have him wrapped around my left paw (he's left-handed). It is so nice to get rid of him for a while, but don't tell him, because Laurie from Pet Sitters of America comes and we really have fun. When Daddy comes home I am glad to see him but I also know I won't see Laurie for awhile. I heard Daddy on the phone and I think Laurie is coming this weekend while he goes to a wedding (not his wedding... oh do I wish there was another woman in the house). Love, Bailey

E.J. M. [Gurnee, IL]

I would like to tell you how pleased I am with your service. We were gone almost 10 days in January and came home to two happy dogs, no accidents, all the mail was piled on my desk and even the caged rabbit was happy. Thank you for making travel easier, knowing that our pets are well cared for!

K.G. [Lake Forest, IL]

Pet Sitters of America is fantastic! Prior to PSA, we had two experiences with other pet sitting services. Our recent move to Lake Bluff required us to locate a new service. Based on past experience, we were skeptical regarding the return-on-investment we had received from our previous pet sitting providers, and questioned if we should continue with a service at our new home.

We are pleased to report that PSA has far exceeded our expectations! Our sitter, Heather, is outstanding! Our two-year-old Shih Tzu, Duke, took a liking to Heather immediately. Heather provided absolute peace of mind and relieves the 'working dog-parents' guilt-syndrome.

We couldn't be happier with the service we receive from PSA and Heather. Together with Duke, we give PSA 'two paws up!' Thanks for all you do.

Hi, my name is Scooter and I'm here to tell you that my cats and I love Pet Sitters! They take good care of our house and us when Mom & Dad are away! - Scooter

D.D. [Libertyville, IL]

Please understand, my seven-years-young Labrador Retriever, Chum, is the center of my world. I take him almost everywhere. On the rare occasion he must stay behind (even for a few hours), it is so reassuring to know that Heather, our very special sitter, will be spending time with Chum. I know he will be walked and loved while I am away. Heather relieves any anxiety I may have about leaving Chum at home alone. Heather is very professional, supremely reliable, and I know Chum is always happy to see her smiling face. Thank you so much, Heather and Pet Sitters!

S.G. [Lake Forest, IL]

Just a note to let you know how extremely pleased we are to have Violet as our Pet Sitter. She is a wonderful, warmhearted, extra special person to not only take care of our 'zoo' but to care for them with so much love and concern. Even our neighbors commented on the devotion she showed the barn cats. Thank you so much for employing such high quality, loving people!
