Cheri's Critter Sitter Services

About Us

My name is Cheri Pope and I am the proud owner of Cheri’s Critter Sitter Service. 

Our goal is to make being a pet parent easier. We hope to take the stress out of leaving your pets behind when you are at work or are on vacation. Our services are available 365 days a year and we always have back up care in case of emergencies or illnesses.

Cheri’s Critter Sitter is licensed and is a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. We strive to help pet owners provide the best home possible for their pets.  I've always supported various animal welfare organizations and in the past have helped several pet owners find new homes for their pets for various reasons - animals have always been a part of my life so "critter sitting" is not something I consider a "job" but rather more of an enjoyment.

Products and services

For all new customers, we will come to your home for a complimentary “Meet and Greet” to introduce ourselves to you and your pets.  We complete a service agreement at this time, recording the information necessary to care for your pet.  

 Payment is due in full at the time services are booked.  

Florida State Law requires pets to have current Rabies vaccinations.  Please ensure that all of your pets’ vaccinations are current before you ask us to provide pet sitting services for you.  We ask for written proof of vaccinations and reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who does not provide such proof.  This policy is strictly enforced for the protection and welfare of our pet sitters, our customers and their pets.
