Services

In (Your) Home Overnight Pet Care

This is an “all inclusive” service. It allows your pets to have around the clock care. Your dogs can have as many potty breaks and walks as they like, at any time. Your cats can be exercised, or pampered--or both! Your pets maintain the level of care they are accustomed to having. They won’t have to change their schedule. This service includes medical care such as subcutaneous IV fluid injections, insulin shots, and dispensing oral and topical medications. Your mail and packages are promptly collected and brought inside your home. I keep your indoor and outdoor plants alive and thriving. It ensures your home’s safety by having me in it overnight. I have experience working with home alarm systems. I am happy to help with any other concerns that need to be addressed while you are out of town. $100* for 24 hours.

What Pet Owners Say

"Great pet sitter"

I feel so lucky to have found Elizabeth! I have 3 senior pets (an 18 yr old chihuahua and two cats- one is 13, the other is 17). They’re on various medications and eat a raw food diet. I jokingly say that they’re “high maintenance”, but Elizabeth wasn’t fazed at all by having to follow their daily rituals. She was eager to learn their routine and keep them healthy! She asked questions and took notes. I immediately knew she took their care very seriously. I’ve now hired her multiple times. My animals adore her! She is always so gentle with them and clearly loves her work. She is kind, professional, communicative, and as a bonus, sends pictures and videos of my furry family via text while I’m away. I know longer have to wonder if my animals are ok while I’m out of town…with Elizabeth, I KNOW they are.

"Special diets"

"Both of my dogs need special diets, which require mixing together multiple components to make a meal. They take medications, with different medications needed mornings and evenings. I trust Elizabeth completely to get this right because her attention to detail is impeccable."

"Punctuality"

“Elizabeth has always had excellent punctuality. She has never missed work without significant advanced notice. Elizabeth is extremely trustworthy, personable, and an excellent communicator,”

Jeff P.

"Challenging dog"

"I have a very challenging dog. My rescue dog has trust issues and can be a handful. Elizabeth was able to come in and win him over! Together they took long walks, rides in the car and overnight home stays — they did it all!"

"Above and beyond"

Everything Elizabeth does is intentional and thoughtful-she is a true professional. We felt completely at ease with her in our home with our dog, which was such a gift. She is an excellent communicator, gave our pup lots of loving attention, and our house was spotless when we arrived home. I wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth and would hire her again!

"Aging pets"

"My family is thrilled to have someone so kind and caring to take care of our Zonky, Elly and MewMew. As they age, knowing they are in such capable hands allows us to have peace of mind when we travel."

Evan Elizabeth Armstrong, Certified Pet Care Specialist

About Me

My name is Elizabeth Armstrong and I am a Certified Pet Care Specialist. My goal is to understand all of your pet’s individual needs. Your pets will know they can trust me to love and protect them. 

Growing up in Lexington, Kentucky, I was entrusted with taking care of my family’s pets at age five. I moved to Chicago for college, where I worked for a dog walking company. After graduating from DePaul University, I moved back to Lexington and opened my own pet care business. In 2011, I relocated to Portland, Oregon to expand my business. 

 

While in Portland, I was able to shadow a vet technician. I learned how to administer subcutaneous IV fluids. This experience gave me a general knowledge of the medical care that pets receive at their veterinarian’s office. I earned my Red Cross Cat and Dog First Aid certification in 2013. I am dedicated to ongoing pet education through in person classes, webinars and seminars. In 2018,  i moved back to Lexington and became an active member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS). In 2022, I earned my NAPPS certification, through course work, as a Pet Care Specialist. This certification includes classes on bird studies, cat studies, dog studies, exotics, rabbits, Red Cross  First Aid and business.

 

I believe in giving back to the community. Throughout my career, I have pledged monthly and yearly donations to the ASPCA, the Woodford Humane Society and the Lexington Humane Society. I spearhead donation drives once a year to local pet shelters. 

 

I am vaccinated against Covid-19 and the flu. I remain up to date with both of these vaccinations.

Complimentary 30-minute consultation for new clients.
