Drop-in Pet Care

While you’re away, let us play … with your pets. We’ll feed them, scoop their poop, gather their mail (your mail, too!), and water the plants. This is a wonderful service for the working family; or multiple-visits-a-day for the pets that need extra care and the vacationing family. The great part is while you’re away your pets can stay in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. We will come to your home and take care of your specific pet care needs. Rate includes up to 2 pets, additional pet fee may apply.

Drop-in House Checks

While you’re away, let us take care of your house needs (pick up mail/newspaper, water plants, trash/recycle bins to curbside, etc…). No pets necessary for this service. Fee will vary according to service needed.

Potty Break / Dog Walking

Whether you’re too busy or just unable, we’ll take your dog for a walk once or twice a day or we can have a play date at your home (you decide how often). You don’t have to worry about a thing. We’ll come to your home, take your pets out, and get them back home safely. And, don’t worry, we walk your pets by themselves – there won’t be any other pets along for the stroll.

Auntie Lori is amazing! She took the best care of us while mom was traveling all over the world to do her job. She fed us well and made sure the litter boxes were always clean. We missed mom, but Auntie Lori took such good care of us, we were always happy and content after her visits. We love you, Auntie Lori!!

Lori was an answer to a prayer... I couldn't have done what I had to do these past few years without her help. Her excellent care of Tang and Nora always left me feeling confident my babies were in good hands, so I was able to focus on my work when I was gone, and I could always tell when I got home that the kitties were content and well cared for (even being gone nearly a month at one point).

Such a blessing! I cannot recommend Lori highly enough!

Mahalo for EVERYTHING, Lori!!!!

Kailua Pet Sitter has been such a lifesaver for our family. Lori has been providing drop-in services for our puppy for almost a year now. Lori is so dependable and treats our house and our pets like they're her own. Everyday Lori writes us a sweet note updating us on our puppy's progress.

Lori always exceeds our expectations, providing special touches to make coming home to our pets extra special (our dog loves her homemade dog biscuits). I can always count on Lori to be flexible, even when I call last minute. Our puppy is maturing into a lovable and obedient dog... I can't thank Lori and Kailua Pet Sitters enough. Thank you!
Kailua Pet Sitters has been a God send to me. My husband is deployed to the middle east for a year. I have a 16 year old Cockier Spaniel named Sasha, she is my little girl who is also in heart failure and has been for almost two years.

If it wasn't for Lori at Kailua Pet Sitters it would be impossible with my schedule for Sasha to get her meals, meds and potty breaks on time. I am worry-free when it comes to Sasha thanks to Lori and her loving care of my little girl.
Lori has taken care of my cat in my home about a dozen times over the past two years while I have traveled off-island.

She is very professional and dependable. I feel very fortunate to have someone that I trust with my pet and my home.

I am completely pleased with Lori's services and am eager to recommend Kailua Pet Sitters to others.
