Pet Sitting Is Our Specialty!

Founded in 1990 in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, We’re There Pet Care (WTPC) was one of the first established dog walking and cat sitting businesses in the city.  In 2002, the business was purchased by new owners and moved its headquarters to Family Pet Animal Hospital in Lincoln Park.  We continue to provide the highest quality services in the city.  Being a small company, we can give your pets the personalized service and attention they deserve.  Our company has an experienced, dedicated and friendly staff.  Over time, we have built lasting relationships between our employees and our clients.

  • Pets remain in their familiar, secure environment.
  • They are less likely to be exposed to illness.
  • Each pet will receive personal and loving attention.

professional pet sitting software

Pet Sitter Plus is a trusted and essential tool for our business. They have state-of-the-art software that allows us to schedule daily visits for you and your furry friends. As a client, you also have access to the software and can schedule or make changes to services online. We love this software because it provides seamless communication from the sitter to the client with summaries and a photo of their adventures emailed directly to the client after each visit.

"When you can't be there, We're There."

If you’re worried about leaving your pet home alone during the work day or for longer trips when you are out of town, you can count on us to treat your pet to the TLC they deserve! Our clients can work and travel guilt free because their pets are getting the best possible care. Your pets will receive nothing but the best; they will be relaxed, comfortable, and safe. You’ll have happy, healthy pets when you return!

If your pet needs additional medical help, even transportation to an appointment, we can help with that too!
