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 65 pet sitters available to service North East Florida. Scroll down to see an image, the sitter’s name and location of some of our sitters.
Please note that we assign pet sitters based on service area (clients are assigned the sitter who lives nearest to them).

Kelly M. in Jacksonville
I originate from Central Florida but have called Jacksonville home for the last twenty-one years. I graduated from UNF with a degree in Education and taught for four years. My husband and I decided I would stay home and homeschool our children. Which, I have graciously done for the last 12 years. They are 12, 9, and 4 and keep me busy! Pets have always been a part of my life. But over the last 15 years that love has blossomed. We have fostered many animals that seem to find their way to us! This past year we had the opportunity to raise 5 orphaned squirrels that we have since released. We still see them in our backyard daily! Besides the squirrels, we have a house full of blessings of all varieties. Working with DDCN has been a blessing and has given me the opportunity to serve other families.

Elizabeth N. in Jacksonville
Taking care of all varieties of animals isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am. I live in the Jacksonville area and have been working for Dog Days and Cat Naps Pet Sitters, and servicing Jacksonville and the surrounding areas for the last four years.
Before Dog Days, I was raised with dogs and have a dog and cat of my own. Now I want to care for your fur, feathered, fish and scaled babies, as I do my own. I have a repeat clientele, because looking after your babies is who I am.
I make repeat house calls, medicate pets, stay overnight as needed, water your plants, pick up the mail, secure your home and keep your furbabies happy.

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!

I am the owner of 2 dogs, 5 cats, and 1 bird.
Jessica J. in St. Johns
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.
