Donna's Pet Sitting

Loving Your Pets Just Like My Own!


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

May 23rd - 26th

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.

Pet Photography 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. To check out my work please visit Donna Doherty Photography and for landscape pictures and digital art please visit Donna Doherty Landscapes & Digital Art.

I also have landscapes and digital art on Fine Art America. boston red sox art

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!

Cancellations

Please be aware of my cancellation policy. 72 hours notice must be given for all cancellations or you will be charged for the visit. This applies to all visits except for regularly scheduled daily visits which must give cancellation notice by 7:30 a.m.

Please remember to make your reservations early! I only accept a very limited number of sits to ensure that each pet gets the care they deserve and I often get booked up. If you are a new client I need time to do an initial consultation before starting service. Thank you!

ALL pet sitting requests made with less than 48 hours notice will be charged an additional $5 per visit.

My dog, Xena, learned how to open the front door on her own so then I had to teach her how to shut it. Click here to see her in action.
