The ultimate peace of mind
Happy Animals Equals Happy Humans
Over-Night Farm Sitting At Your Home
Booking vacations and traveling can be challenging when you own a farm. However, with the Zookeeper’s Companion, you don’t have to worry about your barnyard pets either! Serving small farm animals (rabbits, chickens, goats, and pigs) to large farm animals (horses, donkeys, and cows), and even exotic animals! Most farm owners would agree that placing their in-home pets in a kennel or boarding facility isn’t the ideal solution when they’re away. At The Zookeeper’s Companion, we know you care deeply for your pets and want only the best for them, and our sitters have experience taking care of all farm animals on top of your other in-home pets! Our overnight farm-sitting service is the ultimate peace of mind and convenience.
It’s hard finding trusted and reliable pet sitters while you’re away. But our pet sitters are licensed and bonded, and your pet’s safety is our #1 priority. That’s why we are certified in pet first aid and CPR. Megan is also knowledgeable and trained in equine first aid.
