A little bit about us…

Madeline’s Paws and Claws Pet Sitting has been a premier pet sitting and dog walking service in Philadelphia since 2003.  Our clients are located in Rhawnhurst, Fox Chase, Bustleton, Port Richmond, Bridesburg, Tacony, Mayfair, Holmesburg, Pennypack, Morrell Park, Parkwood and other sections of Northeast Philly.  We also serve Elkins Park, Rockledge, Wyncote, Jenkintown and Huntingdon Valley.  Whether you’re looking for daily dog walks, weekends, vacations or just occasional walks for your dogs, or care for cats, small animals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles (sorry, no snakes), my staff and I are ready for your pets in the comfort of their own home.  All of my pet sitters are bonded and insured.

Each family has a distinct way of caring for their pets so each family receives customized care.  Pet parents – we love your instructions!  We are trained to give medications.  Plus, in order to keep your home looking occupied, we’ll bring in your mail, water your plants and any other small details that may need attention when you are away.  At the end of each visit there will be a detailed log describing what was done during the visit and, if desired, texts and photos will be sent to the pet parents.

We are members of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters and Pet Sitters International.

Madeline has been taking care of my pets for over 13 years. She IS a member of the family and the person I trust most.  As someone who travels a lot, knowing she is with my pets has completely removed any burden of stress I might have felt about being away from home. When I return it is clear that my four-legged family has been exquisitely cared for by the way I am greeted and the condition of my home. My pets are happy, healthy and calm.

Our boys (2 rat terriers and 1 Chihuahua mix) look forward to Madeline’s, Kim’s or Annette’s visits. We can’t thank you enough for what do. Our boys are our life and we know that they are in good hands when they are with you guys.

I can’t recommend Paws & Claws Sitters highly enough!

Madeline and her team have cared for my dogs for more than 7 years. They take loving and compassionate care of my elderly dogs, delighting in the joy the dogs still have for life. They cared for my chronically ill large lab, Max, to the point where we were together at the vet’s office when that time came.

We have had Madeline’s Paws & Claws Pet Sitting, as our pet sitter since 2010 when we had 2 parrots.  It was not easy to find someone who we felt comfortable about leaving in our home and caring for Ziggy and Sunny.  We have found them extremely reliable, trustworthy and professional.  You can tell at the first interview that they care and take an interest in your pets. We have since added a cat to our family.
