Kathy's Pet Sitting Service

Dog, cat, and pet sitting in Illinois Serving Homer Glen, & parts of Lemont, Lockport & Orland Park

There's No Place Like Home

If your pet could talk, they might tell you they don't like being locked up in a kennel and caged with other animals. They could end up with kennel cough, undue stress, anxiety, gastroenteritis, and just plain lonely and sad without you!

Hello! My name is Kathy Gibbons, and I have owned and operated Kathy's Pet Sitting Service since 2000. I'm honest, loyal and dependable, and have an excellent work ethic. I've had pets my whole life. I'm a huge dog/cat rescue person and, with the exception of the first few dogs I had in my childhood, the rest have all been rescues. I'm blessed to have found my passion, caring for other's pets.

Now you can go on vacation with peace of mind knowing that a dedicated pet lover is caring for your beloved pet(s) in their own home. I have 20 years of professional pet sitting experience, and have owned dogs and cats all my life. I currently have 4 cats and 3 dogs living with me. I'm happy to say that they all are rescues. If you'd like to try my service, I'd be happy to meet with you and your pet(s) for a complementary, brief Meet and Greet. I'm also licensed through the Village of Homer Glen and insured through State Farm Insurance. I completed a Pet First Aid and CPR class in 2016 and 2018.

You must let me know when you arrive home (call or text), no matter what the time. I really worry about your pets! I just ask that you keep me informed, so I know that your pet is back in your loving care.


Kathy did a great job with our three big ones (2 German sheps, 1 rott/shep) when we were gone for a week, A big thumbs up for her!  ~ Jim Harasek
