Since 1991 Very Important Pets has been a full service pet and home care company. We serve the North Raleigh, West Raleigh, Brier Creek, Durham, Chapel Hill/Carrboro, Hillsborough, Cary, Apex, and Holly Springs areas.
In 1993 we became founding members of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. Since that time we have established ourselves as the premiere pet sitting service in the Triangle. We have accomplished this by increasing the size of our company from two people to a staff of dozens of sitters.
Forging concrete relationships with local veterinarians has enabled us to better understand the needs of our clients and their pets. These experiences have assisted us in expanding the company into one that our clients trust and depend upon.
Also, in recent years we have worked with local non-profit organizations to increase animal awareness.
How does VIP Pet Sitting Work?
When you call our office, our office manager will assign a bonded and insured petsitter to your pet(s). The sitter will then call to arrange a consultation visit to your home before you leave. This interview enables the sitter to get acquainted with you and your pets, and for you to get acquainted with your sitter. During this time you will complete a Pet Profile, which contains detailed information such as:
- Instructions regarding your pet(s) care including: feeding schedule, medications, and exercise routines.
- Any special needs for your home regarding mail, plants, and home security.
- The name and number of your veterinarian.
- A number where you can be reached in the event of an emergency.
To provide a service that increases the quality of life of animals and people by positioning ourselves as the premiere pet sitting service.
Integrity and professionalism (i.e. timeless, availability, and responsibility) will achieve the confidence and security that our clients demand. This will foster the opportunity for our clients to promote the success and benefits of our service.
Our staff's cohesion and teamwork, along with their individual entrepreneurial spirit will allow Very Important Pets to set the standard that guides the industry.
