Welcome To Jan's Web Site 
January 2017...Jans Critter Sitters is still unable to accept NEW clients, or do any dog walking, due to family health issues.  (I may be able to do an occassional job if I am in Bellingham, so please email me if you are in need.  I also know someone who can fill in).  I anticipate being back in Bellingham early Spring and will update on this site as things change.  Or you can always email me at  for updates.   Thank you for your understanding.   Jan

Jan's Critter Sitters  has been an established, Licensed Pet Sitting Business in Bellingham
Washington, since the early 1990's
Whether you are looking for a one-time-visit to your home, or multiple, daily visits for an extended
time, you can be assured that your pets will be cared for as if they were my own.
I have worked for a local Veterinary Hospital since 1985.  This added experience can be helpful in 
recognizing issues with your pets before there are complications.
I provide professional, safe and loving care for your pets, in your home, within the Bellingham City
Limits.  If you are looking for an actual boarding facility, please refer to page three of my website
(local resources page) for information and links to places you can kennel your pets.
A freeinitial consultation is offered to meet you, become acquainted with your pets and their 
needs, go over paperwork and collect a set of keys.
GIFT CERTIFICATES are available for that "difficult to buy for" friend or family member with pets.
Why an "IN HOME" Pet Sitter ?
Many pets, (especially cats) have a difficult time adjusting to a kennel or boarding facility and experience
less stress in their own environment.  In addition to the pet's needs, having someone who can collect mail
and newspapers, gather packages left outside, alter lights and window treatments, plant watering, or
a walk-through of your home each day, provides added security for potential home intrusions.
Please call or email me with questions about SERVICES or FEES and I will reply as soon as possible.
Some of the services offered by Jan:
    Care of domestic animals including: dogs, cats, birds, fish, pocket pets and certain exotics, (I am unable to
feed live critters to a snake, sorry).  I do not really have the experience necessary to care for farm animals,
but as suggested above, please refer to my web site (local resources page) for information and links to Pet
Sitters who could provide that service.
    Care given each visit includes: giving meals/treats, refreshing water bowls, light brushing, cleaning
litter pans or picking up yard waste.  And a whole lot of hugs, of course.
The following services are in addition to the basic visit above and would be charged for appropriately.
     Delivery of pet foods and/or medications.
     Assistance with medicating your pet.
     Transporting to an appointment.                
     Lawn/garden watering. (a few indoor plants would be taken care of at no additional charge). 
If you have an additional request, please ask!
