Meet the Team
Not all pet sitters are created equal, nor are they all professional. In hiring a pet sitter, it is important to make sure you have chosen the right person to care for your beloved animal.
A professional pet sitter does more than feed your pet. A professional pet sitter will be sure your pet gets exercise, attention, and love on a daily basis. A professional pet sitter is also skilled in your pet’s health and can provide medical attention if necessary.
A professional pet sitter will collect your mail, change the lights, and make the place look lived in. A professional pet sitter will water your plants and put out the garbage can and make sure your home is the same when you return from vacation as when you left.
A professional pet sitter will do more than keep your pet and home safe, it will give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your time away. A professional pet sitter ensures you return home to a healthy and happy pet.
Our team provides quality service based on behavior, fitness, nutrition, and healthcare. We have the proven skills and dedication to keep your pet healthy and safe at home.
All of our Animal Care Specialists pass an Acutraq background check and are fully insured through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC.
Susan Foerster, Owner
While working at a veterinary hospital in Brevard County, Susan saw a strong need for professional pet sitters among the clinic clients. After researching the appropriate liability insurance and professional memberships, G&S Pet Services was formed in 2001.
Thanks to references from clients and local veterinarians, G&S Pet Services has built a reputation as a group of professional and caring pet sitters, with many pet owners booking six to eight months in advance. We have an excellent staff and are proud of the much needed services we provide.
