Sara has taught for Red Cross, for many years. Now she continues to do so, independently. Red Cross has changed the way they teach classes and have made it a difficult and more expensive process, for pet parents. Sara, being a special needs, fur-mom herself, felt that these changes were unfair and not in the best interest of the pet parents seeking education. In turn, she has branched off on her own to create classes with reasonable rates and schedule times, to fit the needs of pet parents seeking First Aid & CPR Classes.

Derby City Critter Sitters was great. Nervous leaving our cats alone with a stranger for the... first time but soon after meeting Brandon, we were relieved that he was great with our cats. Communication was great and we are going to definitely use him in the future soon again! Highly recommend!read more
I have been using Derby City Critter Sitters for years to care for my cats when I'm out of... town. It started with just 1 cat, and now I have 4, but the attention they get and the quality of care remains top notch. I especially love how communicative they are and the updates and pictures I get with each visit. I also appreciate how my sitter (last time it was Megan, and she was great!) has come out for a meet & greet with each new cat as my pack has grown. It gives me such peace of mind to know my buddies are being so well-cared for when I'm not there.read more
I have been using Derby City Critter Sitters for over 2 years as I travel for my job. Vivian... and her team take extra special care of my two older dogs. I choose the Triple Crown Service (30 minutes each visit) and my regular sitter Brandon comes to the house twice a day. He walks, feeds and loves on them each visit. I get an email with an update and photos every time he visits. Derby City Critter Sitters is always professional, and I trust them explicitly! Highly recommended!!read more
We were nervous to leave our senior dog behind while on vacation, but knew that she would be... the most comfortable at home in her own environment. Vivian and her team were so easy to work with, very professional and kept us updated on how our dog was doing each visit. We felt so relieved to know she was being well cared for and loved on! We would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future.read more

We were in Louisville for just under a week and needed 3 walks per day for our 13 year old... French Bulldog. Derby City was so professional right from the start. We met the whole team on a zoom call. They have all the right insurance, etc. Everyone treated our special furry baby like their own. She had so much fun and waited with excitement for them to come. I highly recommend using this service.read more
Amazing care for my pets and peace of mind for me!!
