Compassion for animals, equality for humans, and sustainability for the environment.

We are a small, community focused pet service in Logan Square and Avondale dedicated to providing the best possible care for your animals when you need it most.

Together we have 20 years of experience in dog walking and cat care, as well as volunteering and fundraising for various animal rescues. We are licensed, insured, and bonded, and are members of Pet Sitters International! All breeds welcome.

“This year, PSI received submissions from members across the United States and Canada who have worked tirelessly to promote adoptions and improve the lives of adoptable pets in their communities,” said PSI President Patti J. Moran. “Selecting only one member to receive the 2017 award was a difficult task, but PSI was impressed with La Roche’s efforts to promote pet adoptions through both her volunteer work and her pet-sitting business practices.”
