Payment is always due at the time of service. I prefer being paid via Venmo (@Lucy-Huntzinger), but checks are fine and should be made out to Creatures of Habit Petsitting.

Please note: if you live in an area with limited street parking I require a guaranteed parking spot, usually in your driveway or in your designated space in the garage.

Email me at creaturesofhabitpetsitting@gmail.com to set up a consultation. Please include the dates you need, the type and number of pets you have and the city you live in.
