Home Alone Preferred Pet Care was established in 2003. The founder started this business as a way to help with medical expenses for an ailing husband.  Realizing that there was a need in our local community for quality in-home pet care, and with her tremendous love of animals, Betty set out with a business plan, and the rest is history! 

As Betty was finding the need for additional help with her growing business, my husband, Jim, and I joined
Home Alone Preferred Pet Care as pet sitters in 2005.  We worked together for several years with Betty as she continued to teach us more and more about the business. 

Wanting to spend more quality time with her husband after his recovery, and her desire to enjoy retirement, Betty decided to sell her business in 2008.  Jim and I purchased 
Home Alone Preferred Pet Care from Betty in January of 2008.  Our love of animals, (at the time, we had 1 dog and 3 cats, all adopted) and our previous experience with Home Alone Preferred Pet Care as pet sitters, made the purchase a perfect fit.

Home Alone Preferred Pet Care is fully insured and bonded through Pet Sitter Associates, LLC. 


We offer a personalized pet sitter service to accommodate your needs for in-home pet care and home security while you are away.  

Service begins with a "get-acquainted" interview in your home with the pet sitter that will be servicing your pet/pets.   This meet and greet session also includes picking up completed required paperwork, a key, and/or security code, if you have an alarm system.  Together we assess your special needs and develop an individualized home care program.

After the initial interview, our pet sitting services can begin. 

Why an In-Home Service Pet Sitting for your pet?  

  • Familiar Environment:  Your pet remains at home and receives the loving care they have become accustomed to.  


  • Less Risk to your Pet's Health:  Prevents those problems so often associated with kennels and relocating a pet, such as infections, change of diet, and needless to say, the small areas for them stay (even a 12' X 5' area isn't much when you consider all of the barking, strange smells. and lots of different care-givers your pet will have to deal with...not much fun!) 

  • Worry Free and Convenient:  There is no longer any need to transport your pet to a kennel or to impose on friends and family.  With Home Alone Preferred Pet Care pet sitting services, you can be sure that your pet(s) and home are in professional hands.
