What makes us unique from other care providers?
TLC Pet Care Co. constantly strives to provide the best pet sitting possible so that you and your pet truly have the peace of mind you deserve when you are away. We guarantee reliable, quality, trustworthy service. We make every effort to make pet sitting as affordable as possible. We allow cancellations in most circumstances up to 24 hrs. prior to service with no penalty. We also offer a great deal of flexibility in regard to scheduling and services. TLC Pet Care Co. ensures that its sitters are dependable, trustworthy, qualified animal lovers.
In addition, we take additional steps to prove that we are professionals with a business reputation to protect and not a college kid or housewife “hobbyist” sitter that you would find on those advertised websites.
How is TLC different? we are:
We are insured for Care, Custody or Control (CCC) Coverage. This provides coverage for the client’s pets and personal property in your care, custody or control while in transport in a vehicle, pet taxi and other means. Veterinary expenses are also a part of the CCC Coverage and the pet sitter’s insurance policy pays for claims regardless of the negligence/fault for accident injuries pets.This coverage is also extended to employees and independent contractors that may be contracted by the pet sitting company.
Bonding insurance protects you from damage or acts of theft in your home. Again, this coverage is also extended to a company’s employees or independent contractors.

• Veterinarian recommended
TLC has been recommended by many area veterinarians. How do we know? When new clients call, they mention the veterinarian’s office that referred them. We are aware that an unhappy client will report their experience back to their vet’s office and the office may very well not refer us anymore. This has never happened to TLC since we go above and beyond to make sure that your pets are well taken care of and that you are happy with our services.
