Rave Reviews



“We have used While Away for nine years to look after our cat, Scottie and our house while we vacationed in the Caribbean. The person who fed our cat was someone who loved animals and was reliable about the once-a-day visits. We never worried about Scottie or our house while we were away.” SB

“Since using While-Away (for several years now) I have never worried about my home or my pets while on vacation or even just being away for a couple days. I can always trust the service provided will be reliable and extremely pet friendly. The update note William is kind enough to leave us on his last visit is always appreciated.
I would highly recommend While Away to my family and friends for their home and pet care when they are away.” HZ

“I have been using While-Away for several years now. I find them friendly, courteous, thorough and extremely helpful. Any additional issues besides house visits are dealt with promptly and efficiently. Quick communication either by phone or email has prevented the small issues from becoming larger more expensive ones. I will continue to use While-Away as my business of choice and would recommend them highly to any potential future customers.” CK

“We chose While Away initially from a web search and after our first service delivery, we were very pleased and have continued to use their services for the last several years. We really appreciate the attention our While Away representative provides and the fact that she remembers our requirements each time we call her. We also appreciate how responsive While Away has been when we’ve had urgent issues to deal with when we were on vacation. There’s a deep trust that While Away has built with us over the years that makes us very happy to keep working with them and to recommend them to our friends and family.” JB

“When I leave town, I leave very confidently knowing that my pets and my house will be well taken care of. It is such a relief having someone who I trust to take care of things. And, the staff at While Away has gone beyond the “call of duty” numerous times for us. My Golden Retriever was quite elderly and they gave her much tender care in giving her medications and “loving on her.” When she got to the point that it was too hard for her to go for long walks, they would take her outside and gently play with her.
While Away gives me such peace of mind when I have to travel.” PS

“I have been very pleased with the cat sitting service that has been provided by While-Away for me over the years. My sitter is really good with my cats and they have a lot of fun with her. She is also very conscientious about taking care of the mail and my home as well. I would recommend While-Away to anyone else that needs a pet sitting service. Thank you.” JS

“While Away has provided exceptional care for our home and our pets, a dog and 3 guinea pigs, on many occasions. The house/pet sitters are very responsible and they go above and beyond to care for the home and animals. We have returned to find our flower beds weeded, the guinea pig cages cleaned, the house vacuumed and dusted. All of these were done simply because a mature, self-motivated, member of the While Away team wanted to keep busy while staying at our home. We would recommend While Away to anyone who is looking for a house/pet sitter.” MT

“We have been a client of While Away since 2001 and would recommend this service to anyone who has a pet(s). Our cats are happier in their own environment and love the people who take care of them while we are on vacation. The owners of the company are superb. Our vacation plans are always accommodated even if the owner has to come by and look in on the cats. This service also covers our insurance requirements to have someone look in on the place while we are on vacation. While Away also offered the service of snow removal and cutting our grass (for a fee of course). We cannot say enough about their service and accountability. We have never been let down!” KM

“Oh, you all are a ten! My two cats, though lonely when I’m on vacation, do not have the stress of traveling to the kennel (or even getting into their car carriers and having to live with other cats. They actually seem more bonded when I return, having planned various ways to “get back” at me. And rather than the stress of picking them up at the kennel, forcing them into the carriers again, and a 30 minute drive, I come in the door and have them jump on me and we have a joyous reunion. That really means a lot to me. Also, knowing that someone is checking my home is reassuring too. They are in good hands with your company. Your fees, though higher than a kennel for the two, are comparable because I don’t have them checked every day (every other day depending on the length of trip, with the odd two-days-in-a-row just to keep them happy).“ SM
