Rates & Services

Getting Started

Initially, when we talk on the phone, we will ask you a few simple questions to see if we can service your Asheville pet care needs (zip code, service dates, pet sitting requirements). Alternately, you may sign up with our service by going to the contact page on our web site and clicking on ‘Register.’

Our Procedure

  • Registration – Once we’ve determined that we’re a good fit, we have you fill out basic profile information on your pets and you in our online scheduling site. We provide you with a login to do that.
  • Policies and Procedures (Service Agreement) – Once you’ve registered, we will send you our Policies and Procedures. You can review Miss Jane’s Pet Sitting requirements and expectations, and and then sign and date this document. If you have any questions, we will answer them at the consultation.
  • Meet and Greet – After we review your profile information, we will then set up a time for your consultation, a required meeting which should be scheduled at least 4 days prior to  service. We feel it is crucial for your pet(s) to meet their sitter while you’re still at home. This allows for a smooth transition and less anxiety during the pet sit.  We’ll also discuss  in detail your pets’ behaviors, exercise habits, and daily routines. Feel free to make a list of questions for us. We want to customize our service to your needs!
  • Provide house keys
    Please make TWO copies of your house key for us: one for your sitter and a spare. We typically keep your keys on file; this makes it especially convenient if you make a last minute or emergency request for service or if you get locked out (it happens!)
  • Payment
    Full payment by credit card through our encrypted server is due on or prior to the initial pet sitting visit.

Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, Cat Pet Sitting or Bird Sitting

You tell us what your pet care needs are and we’ll make it happen!

To ensure overall well-being, which includes good behavior, sleep, weight and longevity, most dogs require 2-3 walks/visits a day. All cats require a minimum of 1 visit per day. We do not do every-other-day visits, since we feel that cats, like other pets, have safety and social issues that require supervision.

Services Include:

  • Feeding and replacing water
  • Exercise, morning and evening, and tons of playtime, belly rubs
  • Talking, coo-ing, singing, snorting, squawking, whistling, chirping, clucking… all the stuff you do!
  • Daily – if requested – to document all your pets’ activities:
