The Quality Care Your Pet Deserves

Need a responsible and caring person to look after your pets? You’re in the right place! I’ve always loved all animals, big and small. I founded Animal Companions in 2003 to share my love of animals with my clients and pet owners all over the Houston area. Put my experience to use and let me and my team take care of your precious pet.


It's Easy To Get Started!

Create your account online and tell us about your pet care and home care needs.

We will carefully match your needs with two pet sitters, one the Primary Caregiver and the other an Alternate in case of emergency.

Schedule a free Meet and Greet, where you get to know your pet sitters as they get to know your pet.
