Why hire Almeida's Pet Care 

Serving Morgan Hill, Gilroy, San Martin and Coyote Valley in South Bay - Silicon Valley

Almeida's Pet Care does much more than provide a pet with food and water while their guardian is away from home.

 As a Professional Pet Sitter, I spend quality time with your Pets, giving them exercise and know how to tell if they need veterinary attention. In addition, I  offer additional services, such as taking in mail and newspapers and watering plants.

But just because someone calls herself/himself a pet sitter doesn't mean he / she is qualified to do the job

A pet sitter—a professional, qualified individual paid to care for your pet—offers both you and your pet many benefits.

What do your Pets get from Almeida's Pet Care:

  • the environment they know best.
  • their regular diet and routine.
  • relief from traveling and staying in an unfamiliar place with other animals (such as a boarding kennel).
  • attention while you're away.

What do you get from Almeida's Pet Care:

  • happier friends and neighbors, who aren't burdened with caring for your pet.
  • the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by a professional.
  • someone to bring in your newspaper and mail so potential burglars don't know you're away.
  • someone who will come to your home so you don't have to drive your pet to a boarding kennel.
  • other services, such as plant watering, driving pets for grooming, vet, etc.

What should you look for?

It's important to learn all you can about a prospective pet sitters' qualifications and services. Before selecting a pet sitter, find out the following:

  • Can the pet sitter provide written proof that she has commercial liability insurance (to cover accidents and negligence)?
  • What training has the pet sitter completed?
  • Will the pet sitter record notes about your pet—such as his likes, dislikes, fears, habits, medical conditions, medications, and routines?
  • Is the pet sitter associated with a veterinarian who can provide emergency services?
  • What will happen if the pet sitter experiences car trouble or becomes ill? Does she have a backup?
  • Will the pet sitter provide related services such as dog walking and  playing time?
  • Will the pet sitter provide a written service contract spelling out services and fees?
  • If the pet sitter provides live-in services, what are the specific times she agrees to be with your pet? Is this detailed in the contract?
  • How does your pet sitter make sure that you have returned home?
  • Will the pet sitter provide you with the phone numbers of other clients who have agreed to serve as references?

Almeida's Pet Care has both the procedures as well the expertise that fulfill every single requirement listed above, such as Insurance, Licensed, Legal-Detailed Contract, Daily Report, Emergency Contacts, First Aid Pet Certified, Referrals, etc.

How can Pet Owners help the Pet Sitter and the Pets?

Of course, even the most trustworthy, experienced pet sitter will have trouble if you haven't also kept your end of the bargain. Here are your responsibilities:

  • Make reservations early, especially during holidays.
  • Ensure your pets are well socialized and allow strangers to handle them.
  • Affix current identification tags to your pet's collar.
  • Maintain current vaccinations for your pet.
  • Leave clear instructions detailing specific pet-care responsibilities and emergency contact information, including how to reach you and your veterinarian
  • Leave pet food and supplies in one place.
  • Buy extra pet supplies in case you're away longer than planned.
