Mission Statement


etropawlitan Petsitters started out with the desire to honor the mission of furbabies everywhere: to bring joy and love to every heart they touch. Animals love without limits or boundaries. Our staff reciprocates in kind. Each pet we care for is special to us. We understand the importance of finding someone you can entrust with caring for your four-legged family members when you are away.

Whether during your regular work schedule, fun, vacation or last-minute plans, you will have the peace of mind and knowledge that your beloved pet will be cared for by a trusted caregiver that has thorough training in your pet. We understand the decision that you are facing with the care of your pets.

Questions like…. Will they be consistent? What can I afford to do? Will there be Flexibility? Is the Scheduling easy? Will they do what they say they will do? Can I build a long-term relationship with this company so my pet looks forward to seeing a friendly face and is seen as extension of our family?

We take the worry out of pet care and offer you peace of mind.

Integrity: We want you to know that we go above and beyond to hire the absolute best and most trustworthy in the area. Our pet care professionals have extensive third-party (local, state, and federal) background checks.

With the high-level of training received (every member of our team who has successfully completed our training period and signed our Code of Conduct) can ensure you an exceptional level of continual care that fosters a long lasting relationship between you, your pet(s), and our team!
