Pet Sitting & Home Care with Diane

“While You’re Away” – pet sitting and home care with Diane Areno

After leaving corporate America I decided to pursue work that brings me joy and great pleasure. I connect well to the pets I’ve cared for and love to treat them as if they were my own. With While You’re Away you no longer have to make the decision to board your dog(s), cat(s), or other of your dear animal companions when you are away from home.

I’ll stay overnight ($55.00 per night within 10 miles of area code 28805 , or $65.00 per night outside 10 miles of area code 28805)  I will do day and/or evening visits for $20.00 each visit for up to two pets ($10.00/visit for each additional animal over two). I consider a visit to be 30 – 45 minutes spent walking, playing with and relating to your pets as they are willing.

The pets I’m used to are, of course, dogs and cats, but if you have other critters that are out of the norm let me know and we’ll talk (nothing venomous or dangerous please).

I’m also ready to do housekeeping chores including taking out the trash, collecting your mail and paper or watering your plants and small garden spaces for no additional charge while I’m with your pets! For more time-consuming tasks, again, let’s talk.
