Are you looking for professional pet care that gives you peace of mind?
Would you like to leave home for a few hours, a few days, or longer, and know that your precious pets are being loved and cared for (and maybe even spoiled a little!!)?
Pets are a very important part of our families and our lives. They bring joy, laughter, and loyalty without asking for anything in return. Let us take care of your Furry Friends while you are away on business or pleasure, whether for a few hours, few days, or longer! Our services include daytime and/or overnight pet sitting in your home, dog walking, litter box clean up, brushing, feeding, medication administration, and simply spending time with your beloved pets.
We don’t require the pets to be spayed/neutered after a certain age in order for us to interact with them.
We don’t require any extra vaccinations such as Bordetella and Influenza for us to interact with pets (although we are very careful that we don’t accidentally spread anything contagious if one of our clients’ pets is coughing, sneezing, or has a runny nose.
We care for pets with special needs such as foster pets or pets with one or more medications to take (without charging for each administration of each type of medication).
Since we go to the clients’ home, clients do not have to pay additional fees to drop off or pick up their pet during peak hours or have to wait until the vet or boarding facility is open.
There are no extra fees for puppy lattes, kitty snacks, and other special requests.
While there, we are also happy to check for mail and packages, water your plants or garden, rotate lighting, and roll out/roll back the trash can on trash days, leaving you with peace of mind knowing things are being properly taken care of at home! We care for a wide variety of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, alpacas, donkeys, burros, hamsters, ducks, chickens, birds, fish, and even frogs and look forward to caring for your pets!
“Making Life Easier” – this is our slogan and our mission; to work hard every single day in providing unmatched quality pet care through reliable, honest, and professional services for each and every client and each and every pet.

“Odds & Ends are the best pet sitting service I have ever used. They truly love animals and are trained in pet CPR. I wouldn’t trust my cats with anyone else. They send daily updates (with pictures) which are received via text and also available to view on a website. Professional pet sitting is the only way to go to offer you peace of mind and expertise when you have to leave your furry friends. Thank you Odds & Ends!” – Erin E.
“When I am planning a vacation, I check with Henry to make sure he is available to stay with my zoo first – having him as our overnight sitter is that important to me. He takes care of my home as if it were his own and keeps me well informed on how my crew is doing. Putting that trust in someone is a big deal, and I never hesitate leaving my home and fur-family in Henry’s hands. THANK YOU for being so fantastic!!!” – Marie S.
“There is no one I would rather have watching over me or one of my loved ones than Linda Crist! Spend 5 minutes with Linda and you will know exactly what I am talking about!” – Mike P.
“I had never used a pet sitter before using Odds & Ends, so I was a little worried and somewhat concerned about how our dog would react, but Linda was AMAZING with our dog, which made me feel a heck of a lot better! We will definitely use Odds & Ends again! Highly recommended!” – Chris H.
“Wonderful experience with good people. This was the first time I have used a service like this but the orientation to their process made me feel comfortable and they matched my expectations perfectly. I would not hesitate to use them again, as they are most accommodating and obviously put your animals first.” – Vicki W.
“When a family emergency came up, we were frantic to try and find someone to care for our 3 cats. Thankfully we were able to find Linda! She did a great job, and we were so happy to know that she had a great passion for animals. It was great to know that she was there for our cats while we were away. We will definitely call Linda whenever we need any of her services! Thank you so much!” – Cassie H.
“As a new mother I was very nervous to leave my sweet chow, Savannah, in anyone else’s care while I was away. However, Linda did such a great job watching her! She truly did go above and beyond to make sure that Savannah was taken care of and my house was welcoming for my return. Anytime that I have to leave for a night or a week I will be SURE to use Odds & Ends!” – Marie W.
“We first met Linda Crist a few years ago when she started her business; she has given excellent care to our cats in our home dozens of times. She is wonderful with pets and a pleasure to work with,.and we sleep well, when we are away, knowing that our pets and our home are in good hands. She is professional and we trust and appreciate her so very much.” – Carol and Ray Z.
“I had the best experience with this company and the group of staff. They were all amazing. I felt completely at easy with any type of service that I had to add because of my cats…they worked with me, sent me pictures, and kept me updated. I totally was kept in the loop while I was gone! I couldn’t ask for nicer, more organized group of people than this company! Definitely will use them again, no doubt about it!!!” – Regina B.
“We had to go away on business/pleasure recently and Linda came to the rescue. We have two schnoodles that are like our kids. It was so nice to be able to leave them at home and not have to board them. Linda is a very caring and compassionate lady and took terrific care of our “babies”. She left some puppy poppers for them too which they love!! I would highly recommend Linda and her services. Thanks again Linda!!” – Cherilyn D.
“My cats are doing Great and had Purrrrfect care. Happy to be a customer. It’s such a GREAT feeling knowing our babies can be SAFE at home and not stuck in a cage for boarding. Michele is Wonderful and a Blessing. Also Sophie was ecstatic and full of Joy when Kenny got home. I’ve never have heard a dog so excited and just about jumped into our arms to greet us. Y’all are our only way we can leave our pets and know they will be well taken care of.” – Christina T.
“They take amazing care of my kitty trio and my kitties adore them. In addition, they get my mail, set my trash out on trash day, clean out the litter boxes, give kitty meds, spoil them rotten, water my plants and turn my lights on and off.
