Overnight Pet & House Sitting*

A popular service for clients with many pets or who are looking for extra home security.

If you have a nervous or anxious pet, our Overnight Pet and House Sitting service can provide you with the security of having someone in your home with your pets overnight.

You may have an elderly or ill pet or one that suffers from separation anxiety, having a pet sitter present overnight can help to put your pet as ease whilst you are away.

In addition to the overnight stay, we will visit once, twice or three times during the day for any length of time between 15 minutes to an hour to carry out all necessary pet and house duties. Longer visits can be carried out by request, subject to availability.

Duties include: feeding, dog walking, water, cuddles/playtime, change litter trays, clean pet areas/accidents, cleaning out of hutches/tanks, basic grooming, administering medication (if applicable).

We can also carry out any basic household duties you wish; bringing in the post, putting the bins and recycling out/in, watering plants, we can even get the bread and milk in for your return!

For your peace of mind, we can send you regular updates of your pet via SMS, email or on Facebook!


*Please note, not all Paw Pals branches offer these services. Please contact your local branch for more details.

What our Clients say!

Ally did a great job of looking after our cat, Kimi on 2 different occasions. Ally came to the house to meet us all before our trip and then sent us welcome text messages to reassure us that Kimi was ok while we were away. Kimi looked well cared for when we got home. She was much more content being at home than after her stay in a cattery. We have found the service to be friendly, reliable and professional. We will happily use Paw Pals again in future.
