Donna's Pet Sitting offers a great solution for your pet care needs when you go away on vacation or business.
Instead of bringing your pet to a kennel, you can now leave them in the comfort and security of your own home without worrying
about imposing on friends or neighbors.
I know your pets are as special to you as mine are to me and
I know how hard it is to have to leave them behind when you go
away. I can make this easier for you by providing lots of tender
loving care in your absence.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science from the University of Massachusetts and I took the American Red Cross Pet First Aid Course. I worked for many years as a vet tech before starting Donna's Pet Sitting in 2002. I have been a resident of Ashburnham since 1986.
Service Area - Donna's Pet Sitting covers Ashburnham and a little bit of Westminster and Ashby. Please check my service map to make sure I cover your area.
Request Service - New clients can use my request form to set up
an initial consult and current clients can use it to make reservations.
***Sorry but I am no longer taking any new dog clients. I am cutting back on the amount of petsitting I am doing and I will be taking more weekends and holidays off. I also have a photography business and more of my time will be involved with that.
Here are some dates I am not available in 2014 but there will be other dates too:
April 25th - 27th
May 17th - 18th

July 3rd - 6th
September 5th - 8th
September 19th - 21st
Lately I have had to miss a number of events with family and friends because I committed months in advance to certain dates and then I find out about things in my own life later and can't go. From now on I just don't want to commit so far in advance. You can let me know about dates you may need and I'll do my best to work my personal life around them but I really don't want to book out more than 6-8 weeks ahead. I know that makes it hard for people to plan things but while I love pets and love caring for them I'm getting burnt out and just need to back off a bit. I hope you will understand.
I always take a week off in the summer for a family vacation (second half of Juy or early August) and a midweek vacation usually in August for a women's golf trip to VT. I don't know when either of them are this summer yet so I can't confirm any more petsits until I know. Many weeks in the fall I am not available because I go to rugby games.
I am now offering pet photography. If I am sitting for your pets and you are interested in having their picture taken please just let me know. There is no extra charge.
I often take photos anyway and will send you a link to see any photos taken. If I am not currently sitting for your pet but you would like them photographed please contact me.

Donna's Pet Sitting is on Facebook and I will be posting current pet sitting photos there on occasion. If I've recently sat for your pet you might want to see if your pet is featured. Come check it out and see who I've been hanging out with!
