Dear Tina:

Thank you for the wonderful care you showed Shea during the month he was boarded with you. To say I was weary of leaving him for such an extended period time would be a gross understatement. That said, seeing your cageless facility and the personal care and attention you devote to each of your "guests" quickly put me at ease.

I now refer to Shea's time with you as 'Summer Camp' and have already recommend your service to a girlfriend. Should I ever need to be gone for an extended period of time again, I would not hesitate to call you. Thank you so much for the wonderful care.

Your sincere friends,

Our doggie received lots of personal attention while we were visiting Chicago and was happy after spending a week in a cage-free setting, making friends with some other friendly dogs. She is a picky pill-taker, but Kathy was creative in finding ways to get her to take her seizure pills. The Paypal option was appreciated, and customer service was excellent on all fronts.

I found myself needing pet care during the Fourth of July holiday at the very last minute. I was convinced that there was no way I would be able to find someone with such short notice, let alone someone who I would feel comfortable with. I am pleased to say that I was wrong. Andersonville Pet Sitting came through in the clutch! I was SO fortunate to have someone like Tina caring for my cat, Cassidy, while I was away. She was fantastic! Not only did I immediately feel at ease when I met her, she went above and beyond what I would have expected from a pet sitter. Just before I left for vacation, I went to change the litter box. Only then did I realize that I had almost next to no kitty litter left. I was already running late, and had no time to run to the store and back. With one phone call to Tina she assured me that she would pick some up and fill up the box for me. This is a wonderful agency, and although I have only had the pleasure of working with Tina, I can only imagine that all of the staff are just as great. Although I donít go out of town very often, when I do I will never look anywhere else for pet care. I highly recommend these great animal lovers to anyone who loves their pets.

Tina is probably the next best find in Andersonville next to the Hop Leaf! We got a great vibe from her as soon as we met and more importantly, Rosie our Old English Sheepdog was right at home with her at our initial meeting. She was able to accommodate us on very short notice and went well out of her way to make sure we didn't have to worry about Rosie while we were gone. Not only is she is a great person, she is also great with animals. Thanks again Tina!

My wife and I recently moved to Chicago with our two cats, Brooklyn and George. The week after we moved into our apartment, we had to leave the state to attend a family reunion. You can imagine how apprehensive we were about leaving our pets in a brand new city!

Luckily, we were refered to Tina, who put us at ease immediately. She was wonderful with our kitties and created a warm and caring environment for them while we were away. When we came back, Brooklyn and George looked so comfortable and happy that we weren't sure they wanted to leave!

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found such a fantastic petsitter. Tina is terrific. She comes HIGHLY recommended.

I just wanted to give you a great big thanks on a job well done on watching my two ferrets. They're getting up in years and your special care and attention is not only appreciated by me and them, it is a godsend. Finding a responsible, trusting company to come to your home these days and managing the small details is work enough prior to a trip and I think I've found a long term solution in your company. We look forward to working with you in the future!

Thanks so much,

We were so glad that we found Tina to watch Samantha. We hated to take our dog to a kennel, and we know that Tina is wonderful with Sam. We will definitely use her again.

Being new to Chicago, both my cat and I were in need of a nurturing caring person to help before I left out of town for two weeks. I posted on a public board and got a reply back from Kristine and Kathy, two wonderful ladies who came to my rescue when I needed help with my Vivian. Vivian is 14 years old and has renal failure, is on a special diet and needs the attention.

I went with this service because they were so caring and friendly.

I felt like I was turning over my child to these wonderful folks because they kept in touch on how Vivian was doing. You wont be sorry going with this service. The personalised attention , the sincere caring and concern are what I look for in choosing my pet sitter. Thank you Kristina and Kathy, you are both wonderful and I will refer anyone to you who needs help with their pet.

Dear Tina,

Thank you so much for welcoming my cat, Nimbus, into your home! It really put me at ease when I saw where she would be staying and how knowledgeable you were about cat behavior. She must have felt right at home, because when I came to pick Nimbus up she was sitting on the couch watching TV!

Hey Kathy!

Thank you so, so much for taking such good care of Baxter! He didn't even seem like he missed me when we reunited! I was so anxious leaving him at some stranger's "boarding", and it was only something I was willing to do as a last resort...but now I feel that I can comfortably count on you not just as a last resort. As soon as we set foot inside your place I felt that i wasn't really dropping him off for boarding, but at a personal friend's house. He was relaxed right away, and so was I! I felt that you guys were so attentive to both me and Baxter's needs, and I appreciated your encouraging me to call as often as I like. I was camping without phone service, but by that time i was confident that Baxter was having a vacation of his own (and even cuddling with you guys on your bed!) and secure in the knowledge that he was being fed, watered, walked, and medicated. Thanks again from the both of us!
