Common Questions

  • Where are you located, and am I in your service area?
    We're located in Big Lake, Minnesota, specifically Orrock Township. Our service area includes: Big Lake Monticello Orrock Township Zimmerman Princeton Elk River Becker Rogers St. Michael Albertville Otsego
  • How big is your business?
    We started as a small, two-person operation. But have since added additional pet professionals to help us keep up with ever-increasing demand. When you join the Oh, Fur Pet's Sake pack, you'll meet with one of our pet specialists to ensure we're all a good fit. That specialist will be assigned based on where you're located, the services you're interested in, and which team member has availability. The person you initially meet will be your primary sitter.
  • Do you provide pet care at your home?
    No. We don't provide care at our homes. We provide pet care at the pet's own home, where they are most secure and comfortable. Our overarching mission is to always adhere to the pet's routine. By changing as little as possible in your pet's environment, they stay happy and calm when you cannot be with them. View our services for a full list of how we can help you and your pets.
  • Do you have a cancellation policy?
    Yes, we have a flexible cancellation policy because we understand that life happens. General Services If you need to cancel or reschedule your service, please get in touch with us at least 24 hours before the scheduled start time. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the start time may be subject to a cancellation fee of up to 50% of the service cost. Holiday Services Services scheduled over a major holiday need to be canceled at least 72 hours in advance or may be subject to a cancellation fee of up to 50% of the service cost
  • Do you provide overnight pet sitting?
    Yes! While most pets do not require someone to sleep next to them all night, we understand the peace of mind it gives pet parents, especially for pets who have special needs. And we don't stop with "overnight" care. Our service is 24-hour care at one flat rate. We don't tack on charges for additional daytime care. Read more on our overnight services page.
  • Do you charge per pet?
    No. Our prices are the same no matter how many pets you have and regardless of their care needs. We know what it's like to have multiple pets and to be charged excessive fees for each. If we come to your home to care for one pet, we will happily care for them all without penalizing you for being an animal lover. However, if your care needs exceed your visit's allotted time, we may charge an additional fee. Generally, this can be identified in our initial meet and greet.
  • How much do our pet sitters earn?
    At Oh, Fur Pet’s Sake, we believe in giving our pet sitters more than just a pat on the back – we’re all about rewarding them with a larger slice of the pie. Unlike the average pet sitting business, our sitters take home a very substantial portion of your payment. Why? Because their commitment and expertise deserve more than just a scratch behind the ears. Ensuring our pet sitters receive a living wage isn’t just about keeping tails wagging – it’s about recognizing their invaluable role in your pets’ lives. Happy, well-compensated pet sitters are motivated to provide top-notch care, guaranteeing your fur babies get the attention and love they deserve. When pet sitters are adequately rewarded, they’re likelier to stick around, creating a consistent and reliable relationship for both pets and owners. Additionally, our team of professional pet sitters isn’t just your run-of-the-mill bunch. They’re seasoned caregivers with a wealth of experience under their collars. From panicky pups to finicky felines, they’ve seen it all and know how to make your pets feel like royalty in your absence. So, when you choose Oh, Fur Pet’s Sake, you’re not only pampering your pets – you’re investing in pet sitters who pour their hearts and souls into their work and are rewarded for it in a way that sets them apart from the pack.
