All Inclusive Care for your Family and Household
We view each and every single one of our clients as a member of our VPS family. It is our pleasure to go above and beyond the call of duty whenever needed. While our employees are on the clock, they are never alone! There are always two or more office staff on standby to monitor and assist pet sitters with questions they may have while in the field or offer in person assistance in the event of an emergency. Since pets can be unpredictable, each pet sitter is uniformly trained according to our care standard, allowing them assist or step in for one another when ‘timid dog’ or ‘scaredy cat’ delays occur. Of course, for more sensitive pups or kitts we offer more exclusive care options.
Meet The Owner
Hi! I’m Shira, the owner of Valley Pet Sitting. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved animals. In fact, since I didn’t have any dogs of my own at the time, I would go door to door around my Woodland Hills neighborhood, offering dog walks. Growing up in the Valley, I would take care of homes, dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, fish, horses, and animals of all kinds; earning myself the privilege of owning a childhood dog, Bobi. I graduated in 2002 from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s in Marketing and accepted a corporate desk job where I worked for 10 years. In 2010, I decided to risk it all and start my own Pet Sitting business. I’ve always loved to help people, and I thought what better way than to care for people’s homes and animals while they were on vacation? I started small, with only 5 clients and myself as the sole pet sitter.
As the demand increased and business picked up, I hired some team members to help, screening and training them carefully to be as thoughtful, loving, and committed to their clients as I am. Now, I can proudly say that my dreams for Valley Pet Sitting have come true! Covering a service area spanning from Newbury Park to Burbank and all cities in between, we continue to help people and animals with their care needs all around! Currently I have 55 gallon freshwater tropical fish tank, two cats Dante and Hunter, and my sweet poodle Mamba. I will never forget where we came from, and this vision has carried forth in my business practice: to treat every client as though they are our only client!! We look forward to working with you, loving your animals as though they are our own, and showing you what makes us special.
Meet The Management Team
Sharon is our Office Administrator here at Valley Pet Sitting! Before working for us, she came from a background of her family’s retail business and worked at various other companies as an operations manager. She has loved all animals since having her own first dog Shilgy, and it grew from there where she took care of both cats and dogs for various friends and relatives. Several years ago, she discovered her passion for aquatic life; becoming an expert in fish care having had over 4 freshwater fish tanks and learning about breeding, feeding, and their maintenance needed. Sharon helps oversee the day-to-day tasks making sure our Office/Sitters have the proper information needed to take the best care of our clients.
Abby is a great addition to the VPS Office Team! She has vast knowledge of rats, guinea pigs, bunnies, fish, lizards, snakes, dogs, and cats whether she has cared for them for others or owned them herself.
Abby has loved animals since the moment she was born, enjoyed reading books about them, and she even tried to convince her mom to let her get a donkey (she never got one, but a girl can dream!). Abby lived in Arizona most of her life where she got to learn and observe lots of different wildlife around her before she moved to Los Angeles. She currently has a cat named Zoey, a bearded dragon named Lil Liz X, a chihuahua named Dandi, and enjoys caring for all types of animals whenever needed. Abby has rescued all of her animals and has also fostered many others! She hopes to someday be a foster for senior animals and make sure they get the love and care they deserve in their final stages of life!
