Meet Our Sitters
We are proud to have a team of caring and responsible pet sitters who absolutely LOVE pets. All of us have pets of our own, and many of us have professional veterinary experience and/or years of experience caring for friends’ and family’s beloved pets. Most of our team has been certified in American Red Cross pet first aid.
We have over 60 pet sitters up and down the East Coast of Florida. Scroll down to see an image, the sitter’s name and location.
Please note that we assign pet sitters based on service area (clients are assigned the sitter who lives nearest to them).
Megan M. in Jacksonville
My name is Megan & a bigger animal lover you will not find! I moved to Jacksonville from Orlando 2 years ago to be closer to my grandkids. I love animals of all kinds and grew up having a variety of pets. I have always wanted to work with animals so after retiring from the transportation industry, I decided it was time to do what I love. DogDays & CatNaps has given me that opportunity & are a great team to work with. When caring for your pets, I go above and beyond peoples expectations! I currently have 1 dog & 4 cats which are all rescues.

Georgeanne S. in Jacksonville
My name is Georgeanne! I have been working as a pet sitter for about 2 years. I began in this business back in Michigan which is my home state. I love the extra time I get to spend with the animals in the this job. I do dog walking, pet sitting(daily visits), and overnight sitting. My full time job is as a personal trainer so the flexibility of that job allows me to work at Dog Days and Cat Naps which is awesome! I would love for the opportunity to care for your pet and keep them happy while you are away!

Olivia H. in Ponte Vedra
Hi, my name is Olivia. I have never lived in a home without a dog or cat in the past 36 years :) I love animals! I have a 4 year old lab/golden retriever mix named "Rhapsody" and a cat, "Lucy". What I love about our pets is that they remind us to slow down & take peaceful moments. And most of all, they remind us to laugh and not take life so seriously!
Mary Kay in Jacksonville
Upon retiring from 39 years as an elementary school teacher I wanted to stay active. I am already involved in doing music with my husband at community and church events. However, I wanted to do something else that would be giving and positive. I've always had at least one pet, usually more, since I was nine years old. I really wanted to work with animals, any kind! At the time, the Zoo didn't have openings for non-biology majors but then I found Dog Days and Cat Naps! I was very impressed with their professionalism, integrity and caring attitude. Now, that I work for them I am so glad to be a part of their team and love what I do!
Donna H. in St. Johns
I live off of the 210 corridor in St John's County. I am a new addition to Dog Days & Cat Naps (2014) and I am so happy to be a member of their team!
Adam H. in St. Augustine
My family always owned dogs while I was growing up. I’m very comfortable around dogs and cats. I really enjoy being around animals. I love to exercise and people are always telling me I have a special connection with their pets. Very often people have expressed surprise that their pets like me so much as they usually don’t like strangers. I am currently a student working on my degree.
Novella M. in St Augustine
Hello I'm Novella and I love animals! I l care for all animals as if they were my own! I ensure every animal is cared and loved while their owner is away!
Jessica J. in Riverside
I am an animal lover! Dogs and cats (along with some hamsters and fish) have always been a part of my life. Presently I have 2 dogs and 3 cats, plus I feed a wide variety of feral cats on my front porch. I love all of their unique personalities and the companionship they provide. Pet-sitting provides me with the opportunity to give others what I know is appreciated during their time away: food (of course!), love and attention.

Lauren H. in Gainesville
Hello everyone, I'm Lauren, mommy to two children and three furry, cat babies! I got my first cat from the Gainesville Humane Society over 4 years ago; the other 2 I rescued as one-day-old kittens from my backyard, nursed them, and raised them to be my spoiled little shadows that they are today. I have been pet sitting with Dog Days since March 2014. I have a love and respect for all animals, and, if I have the pleasure of taking care of your own furry babies, I will always treat them like they were my own!
