In 2007 I moved to Atlanta and began volunteering with a local cage-free, no-kill shelter. While there I joined the Medication Team and was trained by their vets and technicians to care for the sick and injured rescues they brought in by administering subcutaneous fluids, checking blood glucose levels, providing insulin injections, and learning a variety of techniques for handling difficult-to-pill cats and dogs.
The shelter’s adopters often asked what they should do with their new pets, some of which had chronic medical conditions, when they needed to travel. Since the shelter is unable to board pets due to space constraints and because they typically don’t do well in noisy boarding environments, I began providing pet sitting services for our adoptees in their new homes while their pet parents were absent.
I started PawPrints and became a professional pet sitter in 2008, and I can honestly say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. So rest easy and enjoy that vacation or focus on your business trip knowing that your pet is in the experienced hands of a trained professional. I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver the very best care for your very best friend.
Pet sitters should be insured, have a membership in a professional industry organization, have medical/emergency training, and support valuable causes. Check us out!

Holly is fantastic. She pet sits my two cats whenever I am out of town. Both of my cats have lymphoma. Holly gives them their medications. One cat is very difficult to medicate, but Holly can handle her. Holly texts me after each visit. She also brings in the mail and waters the plants, if needed. Before I hired her, she spent an hour with me at my house to meet the cats and to learn about their medications, etc. You can’t go wrong with Holly.
Holly is wonderful! Beyond basic care, I highly recommend her if you have pets who need medication. She is extremely knowledgeable about giving meds, even IV fluids, and takes care to understand the unique needs of each pet. One of my cats needed three different medications every day and Holly never once had a problem giving it to her. Holly is also very understanding of the particular details of a pet’s routine. My cats ate different types of food and in different locations throughout the house due to age and other issues so I was always very concerned about making sure they were each getting what they individually needed. But even with everything being so complicated, Holly takes the time to learn the routine and make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. Put simply, Holly is wonderful and I highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs!
Holly is responsive, professional, affordable, and critically, also clearly loves caring for animals. She completely removed any anxieties I had about traveling now that I have pets. Can’t imagine ever considering a kennel, or bothering friends and relatives again.
This should be a 10+ Star rating. Holly is the best! She cares for my two cats as if they were hers. One takes medicine and let’s Holly pill her. I can go away with confidence that my babies are well cared for. Thank you Holly!
Responsible, reliable, and affordable! I found PawPrints after going through several other sitters who just couldn’t meet my needs or were way too expensive. I have four cats and a dog, some with medications, and she handles everything like a champ without nickle and diming me for every little thing. I know I can count on her and can relax whenever I travel for business or for fun. It’s so nice to be able to get away and not have to worry. I’ve been using PawPrints for about three years now and wouldn’t change for anything!
Holly took care of my two large dogs and two cats in Dunwoody/Sandy Springs for 6 days, and when I came home everyone was happy and healthy. One dog requires medicine twice daily, which Holly handled perfectly. I could not have asked for a better experience – we will be using Holly’s services again!
Holly with PawPrints Pet Sitters is awesome!! Holly is very qualified and was very thorough to make sure she had all of the knowledge and information needed to take care of my cat, Goldie. It was such a help to know that Goldie was happy at home and taken care of while I was on vacation. Holly sent pictures and was great to update me. I highly recommend her to take care of your pets!
Holly is the best petsitter I’ve ever had! She always knows exactly what she can do to help me be relieved knowing that my pets are in great hands. She has even gone out of her way to help take care of my foster pets that are in the house when she comes. If I could have her come every day, it would make my life that much easier. She knows so much and is so kind that even my grumpier dog loves her. For real, you will not find a better petsitter. (Also, she is fantastic at accommodating my random trips that spark out of nowhere and it is so greatly appreciated that I can have someone so dependable when I’m stressed about quickly leaving town.)
