PAWesome service

Kathy from Critter Caretakers is now our go to while we're on vacation. She took the extra time to get to know our rescue pup and was patient while she adjusted, she also loves on our needy cat and always sends pictures and updates while we're away which is SO reassuring because you know your fur babies are being well taken care of. Great alternative to boarding, the animals get to stay home and the cost is reasonable!

by Nancy on Critter Caretakers

I have nothing but positive experiences with Critter Caretakers during the past 3 years. Their professionalism, concern and organization is unmatched. I am grateful for their communication during pet visits and their complete description of services rendered. They provide comfort and security, which helps tremendously when I have to leave my babies.
I can't say enough about Tony and his service, exceeding all expectations. Thank you so much!

Excellent and Loving Care

We found Tony and Critter Caretakers recently, and Tony watched our Mr. Buddy for the first time over the long holiday weekend. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Tony and Critter Caretakers! He took the time to update us daily with text and pictures (which is great when you are away and missing your baby), everything was spotless when we came home (food bowl, toys cleaned up). Our Mr. Buddy has some special needs and Tony attended to his needs lovingly. Tony and Mr. Buddy became fast friends. Mr. Buddy even let Tony give him belly rubs! I would use Critter Caretakers again in a heartbeat, and plan on doing so in the future. You can tell Tony is an animal lover as well, which put me at ease while being so far away. Thank you!

Ladies were amazing!

I just wanted you to know how absolutely excited we are over the care your team gave Barkley and Sophie while we were in LA. As you know, this is the first time we have used you for extended care versus our weekly daily visits. The ladies were so amazing with all the care and attention they gave. The pups were so relaxed, not one bit of stress. They look good and smell good. This is without a doubt the best care we have ever had. I now feel so relaxed over leaving for our longer extended trip and knowing they will be in great hands.

Thank you so much; you’re the best!

Best Cat Sitter Service

Critter Caretakers is a great pet sitting service. Since day one they have made me feel very comfortable leaving my pets in their hands even for an extended time. I am very particular about the needs of my cats and they are more than willing to go above and beyond. Nicole is amazing and I highly recommend her to anyone with cats. I truly feel she has a special place in her heart for cats and proves it through the compassionate care she shows my animals. Nicole spends time not only replenishing food/water but also providing my cats with social interaction. Finding a service like this is a rarity, where you can 100% depend on them to care for your pet as their own.

Thank you!

Thank you from Sophie

During the recent holidays I planned a lengthy trip to visit my children & grands. Critter Caretakers was the answer for caring for my little, cute, almost blind cat that had just gotten used to our new home. Kathy, in particular, was so kind & caring. She fed, brushed, played with, cleaned up her litter daily. She sent texts & photos. When I got back, Sophie wasn’t sure why I didn’t sound or smell like Kathy. After five days, Sophie is fine with me again. Thank you for the great care.

5 stars unequivocally

I can't begin to tell you how pleased we are with Critter Caretakers services. Nicole was an ideal sitter for our wary, elderly cat. Knowing that all bases were covered and we could rely on you was a great relief and made our trip much more enjoyable. We unequivocally give you 5 stars!!!

Critter caretakers review

Critter Caretakers is a fabulous pet sitting service. Very reliable and they have taken such good care of my kitties. Dawn is very organized and responsive and Yvonne is so loving she worked wonders with my nervous cat. I highly recommend this service. Mary P

Critter Caretakers is AWESOME!

Critter Caretakers will always be my pet sitters forever! Dawn always goes above and beyond in taking care of my kitties. We come home with calm and not grumpy cats like we never left. I have a detailed report when I get home and I get daily photos of them. My scaredy, shy cat always comes out for Dawn. And she is the ONLY person that was able to get close to my shy kitty. She's so good with animals. And they can sense that she is an animal-lover and bonds with her.

Cat, Dog, Chickens & Aquaponics Too!

'Thank you so very much' and 'Job well done' hardly express our joy at finding CritterCaretakers!

With a cat, dog, chickens and an aquaponic system with fish tanks, we needed to find a competent, experienced and reliable pet service. From our initial phone chat with Dawn to our detailed consultation with Yvonne, we knew we had found the right crew!

Our caretaker Yvonne won over our rescue dog, our older escape artist cat and left all our critters well cared for and the house ship-shape. And daily updates, photos and log kept us humans happy too!

We are delighted to have met these caring professionals and highly recommend their service.

Critter Caretakers is the BEST

Crystal and Randi were unbelievable! Spike is only 4 1/2 pounds, terribly spoiled and very wary of strangers. They won him over and he even talked each one of them into letting him sleep with them! They sent updates, pictures and kept a detailed log for us. Spike had a medical emergency which was dealt with, with extreme competence. I never give testimonials however Critter Caretakers is the absolute best and I felt I had to.

Service above and beyond

Nikki and Dawn went above and beyond caring for my 2 cats while out of town for a week. Their notes were extensive and detailed; and it was satisfying to receive daily e-mail pictures of my oldest boy. Even when the cats were sleeping and hiding, Nikki and Dawn spent time in the house to make sure everything was fine. I felt comforted that the prescription diet was being prepared properly on a daily basis. Even though I did not request it, they tended to the litter box and emptied the kitchen trash. I would trust and recommend this service to any of my friends.

6 cats and 1 dog sitter

Very pleased with Nikki. She took suggestions well, followed thru, and left a documents report. She also sent photos. I hope she can do business with us again. She was excellent. I'm very pleased myself and my husband, but mostly my furry family was safe and taken care of. They are my loves.

Unbelievably great service!!

We recently took a short vacation and found Critter Caretakers so our dog could stay at home. Ashley was Casey's main sitter. She was wonderful with him. He was so excited to see her every day. Casey just loves to be cuddled and loved and he definitely got that attention from Ashley. Mandi also visited him one day and he loved seeing her too! Casey just loves to be loved and he definitely got that attention from Critter Caretakers. I'm so happy I found these wonderful people that care so much about my baby!

They Are The Best!

We recently took an extended vacation and needed to find a reliable pet service. From the moment I spoke with Dawn, I knew that her organization is professional and loves animals. We had two amazing sitters who alternated the care of our sweet kitty. They were professional, loving, attentive, reliable and truly enjoyed their time with our kitty and she loved them back. We had no worries about our home either and they also took care of mail, lights, trash and recycling. Each day we had a text and photo of our baby and when a need came up, our sitter let us know and got our permission to take our girl to the vet. I cannot say enough about the wonderful and caring attitude of this company. Our girl was in reliable and loving hands, and we would not hesitate to recommend Dawn and her caregivers to anyone needing pet care. They are a blessing!

I can relax on vacation!

Dawn was amazing with Frodo, Sammy and Lucy. I loved getting texts everyday of my cats and the cute captions she included. They were well cared for and I did not have any worries at all. I highly recommend Critter Caretakers and will continue with their services for all my pet sitter needs. Thanks a million!

Staying Home

Dogs stayed home with Randi as director. Dogs are in good health and stayed in their usual environment lowering their stress to zero. Communications were great on a daily base. Randi did a great job. 🙂

by Barbara Byrum on Critter Caretakers

Our dog Haley just loves Randy - that is all she talks about. When is Randy coming when is Randy coming I can't wait for my next walk. You guys are awesome thank you so much for taking care of our dog and loving her the way we do.

I hit the jackpot the day I discovered Critter Caretakers Pet Sitting! Several times during the past year I have used CCPS, owned by Dawn Dubelbeis, whenever I took weekend getaways or extended vacations. My aging cocker spaniels hold a special place in my heart, so I am quite particular regarding their care. Dawn provides an outstanding service, giving beloved pets their food, medications, and plenty of TLC. She is attuned to the needs of animals and goes the extra mile to minimize the stress animals (and their owners) feel during absences. Dawn will often send a text message and/or photo so you can stay in touch with your furry friends. This, in addition to a detailed anecdotal record of her visits, mail pickup, houseplant watering, and dog waste removal, provides an outstanding level of service. I am 100% confident when I entrust the care of my pets and my home to Critter Caretakers Pet Sitting and give this service 5 stars!!! Angela, Gilbert

This was our first time using Dawn with Critter Caretakers and boy were we impressed! We have 4 cats & 3 dogs plus a stray that we feed – she took such good care of all of them. From the first meeting I could see she was very professional and really loved her job. She sent us text & pictures daily plus left a nicely detailed diary of their daily antics too! I really feel lucky to have found Dawn as I have used a few other companies in the past and none can stand up to her expertise! It’s such a good feeling to be able to go on a vacation knowing I don’t have to worry about our fur kids. I will be using her for all our travels in the future. Thanks Dawn you are #1 in my book! Linda, Mesa

Dawn with Critter Caretakers is wonderful! Not only is she an organized, professional, she truly cares for the animals as if they were her own. You can rest assured she will take care of your extended family while you are away and be provided daily updates via text or email. We have used her twice and will continue using the service going forward. Peace of mind is what we were looking for, and Critter Caretakers certainly delivers! I would gladly recommend  her services to any of my clients! Zenja, Gilbert

Over the last two years Dawn has lovingly cared for our two large Labrador Retrievers during overnight stays. During this time we have been very happy with the time, love, and attention Dawn has provided to our dogs. We have also been very pleased with the responsibility given to our house and with her willingness to maintain our usual home responsibilities while we are out of town.    Dawn’s love and connection to animals is quite special. She is very responsible and her caring for animals comes directly from her heart. Throughout the times Dawn has stayed at our house, our dogs have been on different medications and supplements, or had other concerns for which Dawn was very diligent. She takes the time to connect with the animals and make sure they are loved, not just cared for, while their owners are away.  Whenever Dawn stays at our house we feel confident that both our dogs and home are safe, secure, and thoughtfully well cared for. Faryl, Gilbert

This company is top notch and really provides a great service. Dawn, the owner is professional and organized. She also has such a great connection with our dogs that I think they look forward to when she comes to dog sit them. I have used other pet sitting services in the valley, but none of them compared to the quality of service and professionalism that this one provided. I highly recommend that you give them a call…you won’t be disappointed! Mike, Gilbert

Critter Caretakers is simply amazing.  In a world where customer service typically takes a backseat to expedience, I have found Critter Caretakers to be one of the best service providers I have used in a lifetime!  She is professional, prompt and courteous, yes.  But what makes her exceptional is her attention to details, her communication and her “above and beyond” approach to everything she has done for me. If you are in need of someone to care for your “Critters” while you are away, if you choose anyone other than Critter Caretakers, you will have missed an opportunity to experience the best company for that task you could find anywhere.  I highly recommend you call Dawn at Critter Caretakers! Don, Mesa
