Providing expert & loving care for your pets/home!

Happily Retired

Happily Retired

We are Sandra & Wanda, two vibrant, Canadian women who have a passion for animals and travel. We would be honoured to be given the opportunity to care for and pamper your pets in their safe and familiar surroundings and shower them with love and kindness as though they were our own. We consider the care of your pets and home to be an important responsibility which we will commit to fully and to make our priority. This assurance will give you peace of mind to enjoy your time away.

Why We Want To Pet/House Sit:

As a retired, active couple (non-smokers) in our mid-50's, we see pet and house sitting as an incredible opportunity. We absolutely love animals and pet and house sitting is a wonderful way to combine both our passions... our love for animals and to experience other parts of the world. What a joy it is to take care of a furry friend while being immersed in the area instead of passing through as a tourist only skimming the surface with no real connection.

Our Experience:

We are financially stable, level-headed and very responsible with clean driving records (should we need to drive your pets to the vet) and criminal checks. We are well-experienced and highly recommended pet and house sitters. We have 90+ references from happy pet owners, many who have asked us to return.

Our pets (sadly who are no longer with us) and the pets we have cared for had occasional illnesses and age related complications. We are accustomed to feeding liquid food through a feed tube and administering medication which we would be more than willing and capable to do for your pets. We know that each pet is unique and has specific needs and we will follow their routine and your instructions precisely. They will be protected, exercised, played with and loved.

We have been responsible homeowners for over 30 years. Our various house sits have included high-worth homes and rural properties which have given us a range of experience in dealing with unique issues that can arise.

We will be mindful and respectful of your neighbours and surroundings. Your home will be kept safe and your property maintained. We can collect your mail, forward messages and ensure all correspondence is communicated to you, all with the upmost privacy. We will send you frequent updates on your pets and home through telephone calls, emails and photos to give you the peace of mind that everything is going well.

We make a great team and have a solid relationship... we happily celebrated our 31st anniversary in 2020. We work well together or independently should the need arise. We are adept at working through and handling any situation calmly and with maturity. We are adaptable and can fit into any situation easily to keep the continuity in your pet's life.

We were recently featured in Canada's highest circulation newspaper, the Toronto Star, about our pet sitting experiences. Please contact us for a link to the article.

We look forward to hearing from you!

I am very grateful to both Wanda and Sandra for their attention to detail, care and mindfulness. I came home to a clean house but more importantly a very happy and balanced standard poodle. It was as if I had never left. This is the second time I have used this service. It is a great feeling knowing I can leave my beloved pet and my home in safekeeping.

Sandra and Wanda took wonderful care of our two cats.The communication before and during was great, with occasional updates and pictures of the cats. They were more than willing to go above and beyond what cleaning we needed to them to do when they left the house which we really appreciated and they followed all of our requests with respect to the house and the cats. It was seamless and we're so grateful to Sandra Laura for being such a great cat sitters and housesitters!
