A Few Words
the owner of Pooches and Purrs Pet Sitting. I have owned my own Pet Sitting business and have been a pet sitter for over 17 years.
As a successful professional pet sitter, I take pride in the quality of care I provide. I am highly dependable and show up on time and on schedule. The feedback from clients is that their pets feel happy and secure and in turn, the owners feel comfortable leaving their precious pets in my care.
I love all animals. Currently my husband and I have 3 dogs. We lost one of our pugs and our cat last year. I'd have a house full of animals, if I could, so that's one of the main reasons I love being a pet sitter. It allows me to be with animals all the time.
I appreciate your interest in my services and look forward to speaking with you soon. If you would like to schedule a pet sitting date with me, call me at
281-658-5262, so that we can arrange a time for me to come to your house and meet you and your pets.
We are licensed, bonded and our quality is underscored by
My pugs, Sushi and Sumo, my pitbull mix, Blondie
and my Golden Retriever mix, Sunny
Testimonials from some of my clients
|We LOVE "Pooches & Purrs Pet Sitting." After our first pet sitter retired we didn't know what we would do with our pets on our next vacation.
A Google search later and we found Sandy and haven't stressed about vacations since.
Sandy is both professional and compassionate. Our pets truly love her. When we come home they are happy and relaxed. This allows us to relax while we are away, knowing that the pets are being well cared for.
The little extras that Sandy provides (text updates, photos, mail checking, etc.) makes her an outstanding pet sitter. Due to her dependability, availability, and warmheartedness we have and will continue to recommend her as a pet sitter!

We first contacted Sandy Martin, of Pooches & Purrs, during the Summer of 2013, and have since called her for numerous pet sitting visits. It was obvious from the beginning that Sandy is not only doing a job she loves, but also that she approaches her business in a very professional manner. Sandy led me through our first meeting by asking all the pertinent questions regarding our pet's routines, likes and personalities. Sandy has a great way with animals. We have three cats with very different personalities ranging from a senior cat, a middle aged shy kitty, and a rambunctious youngster. Sandy has developed a relationship with one each of them, and even our shy kitty will now come out and visit with her when she comes over. When we are away, Sandy keeps up updated on our pet's activities through text messages and pictures. We love that! The peace of mind we get knowing that Sandy is providing our cats with TLC when we are away is so appreciated.
Along with taking great care of our cats, Sandy has always gone above and beyond the pet sitting duties by making sure the house is secure. She will bring in the newspapers, check for packages, water plants, and has even kept our outside patio plants watered during the heat of the summer. It has truly been a pleasure doing business with Sandy. She is dependable, quick to respond to calls and emails regarding scheduling and is very concerned with our expectations. We highly recommend Pooches & Purrs for anyone traveling or needing a little extra care for their pets.

We were extremely fortunate to have been given Sandy's name through 'a friend of a friend' scenario. We have a motley crew of animals and from the first 'Meet and Greet' she left an impression on all of them.... tails wagging and purrs!
Not only is she professional, but her love for animals genuinely shows! We use Sandy
regularly to care for our pets and our home while we travel. We take advantage of her "overnight" service. She is great about sending updates and doesn't hesitate to contact you with concerns.
Accommodating, conscientious and dependable are just a few words I use to describe her. When we leave we are not worried and when we return we are quite confident we won't walk into any issues!
I know EVERY pet owner appreciates what I am talking about! Our pets are our family! We trust her completely to take great care of them!
I have been using �Pooches & Purrs Pet Sitting�
service for several years. The owner, Sandy Martin, is
extremely detailed, consciousness and dependable. I
highly recommend her.
I have an elderly sweet dachshund and Sandy understands her needs. Sandy has had older
dogs of her own and knows how to administer medications
and be aware of senior dog ailments. I also have two Rex
bunnies. Sandy is gentle with them, feeds them and
regularly cleans their cage when I am gone. It is a
wonderful feeling when I leave my house that my beloved
pets will have good, professional care with Sandy.
Along with taking care of our pets, Sandy also gets our
mail, watches for deliveries at our front door, takes in
the newspapers, waters our plants, sets out trash cans
and empties the pool baskets. She will also turn lights
on and off and set my alarm system according to our
I love that my pets can stay in the comfort of their
home without going to a kennel, and having a dependable
pet sitter like Sandy Martin makes this possible at a
reasonable rate. Sandy is someone you can trust to be
there for your pets and I would recommend
Sandy to anyone as a pet sitter.

Sandy has petsitted for us several times the past year, for a few days up to a few weeks and she has rightfully earned our trust and loyalty. She is extremely professional and her love of animals shines through.
Recently, the week before we were to leave on a long trip, our cat developed a serious infection. We were really stressed about his care, what it would cost and felt guilty for leaving, but thanks to Sandy, we were able to leave as scheduled knowing our cat would be in excellent hands.
Without hesitation and with the confidence you'd expect of a pro, Sandy undertook his extra daily care, administered his medications, transported him to and from the vet and stayed in touch with us, even sending photos.
We know from experience that Sandy's fees are very reasonable for the high level of care she delivers. We're pretty sure our cat adores her, and we are grateful to be her human clients. Highly recommended.
We have finally found the PERFECT pet sitter and might need to kidnap her when we move. Sandy loves our dogs as we do, is professional, honest & loving. My dogs are excited when she comes for a sleepover. She not only cares for them, but for our home. I couldn't ask for more.

Love, Love, Love, Sandy! Very reliable and trustworthy and she cares for our pets just as we do! We are very lucky to have found her! All of our fur babies love her too!
Highest possible recommendation for Sandy Martin as a reliable and caring pet sitter. Our dogs love her and we know they are well cared for when we're out of town.
I always hire Sandy Martin of "Pooches and Purrs Pet Sitting" to take care of our dogs and cats when we go out of town. I do not worry about the pets because I know that Sandy treats all pets as she would want others to treat her pets. She even sends photos and videos daily to show that her customers' pets are doing fine. She keeps careful records of all you need done and checks through the list on each and every visit. She comes by our house 4 times a day since we have a dog and no doggie door. She is willing to stay at a home overnight if a pet owner prefers that.
Sandy has a calm voice that my nervous dog responds well to. One of my cats follows her around the house like a puppy.
Sandy Martin is an excellent caretaker for your pets. She has a true passion for animals. Sandy has been taking care of my cats for several years now. It is so reassuring to be able to leave your fur babies at home where they are happy, while you are traveling or need some extra help. Sandy has sent me videos and pictures of my kitties while I am gone. I highly recommend her!
