About Whiskers & Tails Pet Sitting

Personalized Pet Care in Northern New Jersey (Morris, Union, Somerset County)

Your pet's safety and comfort come first! My name is Joe. As the owner and operator of Whiskers & Tails Pet Sitting, I will personally provide one-on-one care for your pet. I have lifelong experience of caring for cats and dogs. I treat your pet as I would a member of my own furry family. In fact, over the years I've opted out of vacations with my own family in order to stay home and care for our pet family members.

In order to provide personalized, customized care for your pet, I mirror the routine and habits that they expect from you as closely as possible. So your pet's schedule can continue uninterrupted, even while you are away. They will feel as safe and secure as they do in your own care. You can rest assured that your pet is in safe hands whether you are traveling, away from home for any period of time or just need someone to check in on your pet.

You can reach me by phone at 908-656-1235 or email joe@whiskersandtails-nj.com for a free consultation.
