In Home or Hotel Pet Sitting


Don't leave your pet alone all day long! We can stop by to walk, play, and feed your cat, dog, or caged pet and make sure that he or she is having the best day possible. We offer both in-home and hotel pet-sitting services.

Hotel Pet Sitting:

While you are visiting the great city of New Orleans, we want to make sure that your cat or dog gets all of the food, water, and company that they crave and deserve!  For any pets that require a little extra time and care, a Petcetera staff member will come to your hotel and spend the time needed in order to reassure your pet. Sorry, only locations in the greater New Orleans area are applicable and hourly service rates will apply.

In-Home Pet Sitting:

We know that pets are creatures of habit. With Petcetera as your personal in-home sitter, your pet's environment and routine can remain unchanged. In your absence, our staff will do our best to make sure that their emotional and physical well-being is taken care of. Not only will having in-home pet sitting services help to to minimize stress for your furry friend, but you can also take comfort in the knowledge that your pet will be attended to by a professional and caring pet sitter.
