Hello and welcome to!

At PetsitterGirl I offer a range of solutions to help lessen that stress, thus allowing you and your pets to enjoy your time away as much as possible.

A Little Help From My Friends


Because I am a one person operation I am unfortunately not able to help
everyone that emails me for service but I’m happy to recommend some of my
terrific pet-loving colleagues who might be able to help you!




“Our Jack Russell hasn’t spent much time around other dogs, or even away from home, so we were a little nervous leaving him, but our worries were pointless! Laurie gave our dog as much attention as we do and he even seemed reluctant to leave after a week with her! She’s a treasure and a real find for picky pet owners and picky pets!”

Riz & Joan


“Laurie was referred to us by a friend and she has been our petsitter for several years now. We were so lucky to find her.

I always feel comfortable when we travel knowing that Laurie is watching over our cat and our home. Laurie is reliable and trustworthy and goes above and beyond.

I would highly recommend her services.”

My name is April, and I have been grooming for over 10 years. I love grooming both dogs and cats. I received my certification for Feline Master Groomer (CFMG) from the NCGI in 2015. Continuing education is very important to me, which is why I strive to constantly learn and improve my grooming skills and low stress pet handling by studying for certifications and attending seminars and trade shows annually. There is nothing more gratifying than being able to help a shy or nervous pet be more comfortable with being groomed.
