"If I'm not going with you, who's going to love on me?"


It’s the question that every dog or cat asks when they see your suitcase or briefcase, and now they know the answer. Sarah Sits-N-Stays! For shameless canine loving care.

While you're away, your pet needs extra love, not just a caretaker. As responsible pet owners and lovers ourselves, our goal is to make sure your pet is walked, fed, groomed and cared for as if you were still at home. Play dates. Long walks. Cuddling together. We’ll discuss your pet's needs and desires, and you will get regular updates via text messaging about what we’re doing so you never have to worry. We can sit. We can stay. And you come home to a happy pet.


Hi, I'm Sarah. Owner and operator of Sarah Sits-N-Stays.

I've grown up with pets my whole life. As an animal lover myself I have modeled my business after the kind of love and care I give my own pets. As a company, we’ve cared for cats and canines from pups and kittens to sick and elderly dogs. We've even cared for the occasional rabbit, fish and bird. Regardless of the pet, you can be sure you'll receive the best care and love a human can give whether it be from me or my amazing staff:

I’m an animal nut. I grew up with dogs (and goats) as siblings, and worked as a Vet Assistant for almost two years.  During Katrina I volunteered for animal emergency relief, and I have a Bachelors of Science in biology from VCU. I have a passion for rescues and rescue work, a weak spot for pit bulls and the like, and I've never met a better friend than a dog.

Growing up surrounded by animals on a farm in Rockbridge County, I only ever dreamed of working with them as an adult.  My childhood consisted of raising Labs, Great Pyrenees, Border collies, and, on occasion, horses, goats, and sheep.  Later, I was the assistant shop manager at Dogma Grooming for 8 years.  Now I've been working with this company for several years, and I love my job and the animals in our care.

Animals are my passion. I have been pet sitting since I was 10 years old, and I absolutely adore all types of animals. I  am a graduate of University of Virginia with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology. But, I admit, I think I like animals more than people...
