About US

Welcome to Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting!

Hi!  My name is Julie Haas and I am the top dog here at Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting.  I started my pet sitting business over 19 years ago because of the deep love and devotion I have for animals.  I wanted a job that I would absolutely love doing and I have found that in caring for pets.  What could be better then spending your day with animals?  Nothing even comes close!  I would love the opportunity to become part of your family and get to know you.

We know you have many choices when it comes to hiring someone to take care of your pets.  What sets us apart is the high standard of care we provide all of our most precious customers, your pets!  We will care for your pets with their health and safety in mind at all times.  In fact, your complete satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!  Tell us what is important to you and we will strive to achieve your wishes.  

We look forward to working with you in giving your pets the best care possible!  Thank you for considering Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting!  Let us know how we can help!




"It's wonderful to return from a trip to find our cat Lucky happy & healthy, the plants thriving and the mail neatly stacked and sorted.  Julie's dependable, caring service is the greatest!" MaryAnne C

"I have used the services of Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting for several years, and find Julie's expertise and nurturing of animals outstanding!  I trust her with "my child", Cassie, my 2 year old Yorkshire terrier, and have found her to be the best in overnight stays.  She is our very own "Dog Whisperer".  Marily R.

Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting is the best!  Julie came by to meet us and our cats and when she left, we knew we had met our new pet sitter.  We didn't even interview other services.  Julie's manner was professional and most importantly, caring and compassionate.  You could tell right away how much she loves animals!  Entrusting the care of our pets to someone else is difficult, but we knew immediately that our cats, Nemo and Lucy, would be well cared for when we are away.  We have used Julie's services on many occasions over the years.  When we return from an absence, we look forward to reading her comments on how our cats were while we were gone.  During our most recent vacation, she took pictures of them enjoying their day.  Most amazing, she even had a picture of our shy an elusive cat, Nemo.  "We highly recommend Julie and Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting to anyone who wants peace of mind, while they are away, knowing that their pets will be well loved and cared for." Diane M.

"I highly recommend Julie to anyone who cares about their pets.  She is 100% reliable and goes beyond that.  She plays with our cats, sends text messages with pictures on how they are doing each visit and has even given them a peacock feather which they loved!  It gives us great peace of mind when we leave town knowing that Julie is looking after our precious kitties."  Mary M.

"Home Sweet Home Pet Sitting has become an important part of our family.  Owner Julie Haas is one of the most professional, dependable and caring pet sitters that we have ever seen.  Julie cares for our pets with all the love and attention that she would give to her own animals.  We have had several geriatric pets with health issues and frandly, there is no one else we would trust.  She is extremely attentive to detail and is always able to warn us when their mobility is declining, their energy lagging, or when they've had a particularly bouncy day.  Working two jobs while caring for an elderly and much loved dog is a challenge, and we couldn't do it without Julie.  Julie is a treasure and we cherish her services and friendship."  Martin & Sara D.
