Pet Sitting Rates

Pet Sitting in Kansas City

You have a life that, hopefully, involves time away from the grind of your job. Or, perhaps your grinding job takes you on business trips, far away from your pet. Either way (but, seriously, sorry about the latter), you want to do better for your pet than dropping them off at your local kennel before you head out of town.

Scheduling a pet sitter to care for your pet is a great option to ensure that your little furry, scaly or feathery friend is comfortable in their own environment while you’re away.

We offer pet care visits that last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour (and longer if you’d prefer). We provide plenty of quality time with your critters and as many updates as you’d like.

Rate* Length of Visit Description
$15 15 minutes A quick visit for shy cats • reptiles • Rodents • Short potty breaks for dogs.
$20 30 minutes The perfect length of visit for moderately social cats • Cats who require medication • Midday potty breaks/short walks for dogs • Birds • Rodents and other small animals.
$30 45 minutes Great for highly social cats • More involved small animal care • Care and activity for senior dogs • Midday potty break and walk for active and/or young dogs • Homes with multiple social pets.
$40 1 hour The perfect option for active and/or young dogs • Homes with multiple social pets.

*$15 additional charge for each 15 minute increment after the first hour.

Households with Multiple Pets

We do not charge an additional fee for the care of multiple pets. During your consultation, we will discuss how involved the collective care is for your lovely menagerie. Together, we’ll decide on the length and frequency of pet sitting visits.

Cats (and most other small animals)

If you’re going on vacation, we recommend you schedule at least one visit per day. During your consultation, we will discuss how long that visit should be.

Feral Cats

Do you take care of feral cats in your neighborhood? We can continue their feeding schedules while you are out of town. If you take care of intact stray cats, please check out Spay and Neuter Kansas City’s website for their Trap-Neuter-Release program. And if you’d need it, we would be happy to help you through that very important process.


Pet sitting for your pup involves 3-4 pop-ins a day. During your consultation, we will discuss your dog’s routine and schedule. We’ll then work with you to develop the best pet sitting plan for your situation.


The rates are discounted as follows for steady, weekly visits (ideal for puppies, pets who require midday medication or older dogs with bladder control issues):

  • 3 or more visits per week: 10% off total.
