Trusting your home and pets to someone outside of your family is a very serious matter, and we take your business to heart.  We want you to know that we will treat your family like our family, and we appreciate the opportunity to become part of your pack.

Here are some commonly asked questions and answers, but please feel free to call or message us anytime.


Are you insured and bonded?

We were insured and bonded for the past five years.  As of January 1, 2022 we are no longer offering this service as its just Shannon providing service very part time, and the expense is not justified.  We can offer many references on our home and pet care as needed.

How far do you travel?

As far as your budget allows!  Our standard rates are for our clients approximately 20 minutes from downtown Wausau.  For outlying areas such as Mosinee and Merrill, it’s an additional $5.00 per stop, or $10.00 per day.  We have traveled as far as Antigo and Stevens Point.  For these areas there is an additional charge, please send an email to pawsaupetsitters@gmail.com for details.

Is the cost per animal, or per household.

Per household!  Care visits are $10.00 locally for approximately 20 minutes.  If the care exceeds that time, additional costs may apply.


Can our animals stay at your home overnight?

Your caged animals are welcome to stay with us, however we would prefer to stay at your home if others need overnight care.  \\


Can you watch our animals on holidays?

Yes!  And we don’t charge an additional rate.

Are you hiring?

We’re not adding to the team at this time, but a resume of interest citing previous animal experience can always be sent to pawsaupetsitters@gmail.com for future consideration.

Should a position become available, eligible candidates must be at least 18 years old, have a clean background check, a reliable vehicle, be able to accommodate the physical demands of the position, have unlimited data on a smart phone and, most importantly, love all pets.  Thank you for your interest!
