Work for Sit-A-Pet!

Pet sitting can be a fun and rewarding job. In addition to being passionate about animals, you must be well organized and detail oriented. Some of our 4 legged clients have medical needs and although veterinary experience is not required, you must be willing to learn how to administer medications. Pet sitting requires a lot of commitment and dedication, but you’ll be rewarded with the unconditional love you experience with each pet you get to know. Many of our clients travel over Thanksgiving and Christmas, so dedicating a few hours over each of these holidays is imperative. Pet sitting is great supplemental income for a retiree or it also works nicely around a 9-5 job. Click the button below to fill out the application.


Where has the time gone?

Hard to believe that it was 35 years ago that Debra Hollander decided that pet owners in the DC metropolitan area should have an alternative to boarding their pets or relying on friends/neighbors when they traveled … and thus Sit-A-Pet was born, giving them peace of mind that their pet and home were in good hands while they were away.

In the summer of 2015 the staff got together to celebrate those 35 years and the wonderful pet sitters who have made it possible.

We look forward to serving you and your furry family members for another 35+ years!!


IT’S A THREE-PEAT!!!!!!! Sit-A-Pet was voted the BEST PET SERVICE in DC in The City Paper’s Readers Poll for the third year in a row. Debra Hollander and Jeff Hallman attended the “Best of DC” celebratory bash.
