Chicago Dog, Cat, and Pet Sitting


Not all trips let us take our furry friends along for the ride, and arranging alternate care for your pets can be stressful for both of you. When you have to travel, the best place for your pets is in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes with someone they already know and trust.

Here at Green Paws Chicago, our team of trusted Pet Care Specialists offer in-home overnight Chicago dog and cat sitting services to ensure your pets are safe, well cared for, free of anxiety, and protected from the stress of boarding facilities (including in-home boarding) and kennels as well as the common ailments pets contract when being boarded, such as kennel cough or canine influenza.


Whether you are away for a long weekend, visiting family during the holidays, traveling for work, or have multiple pets, our Chicago dog and cat sitting services are available for your busy schedule. Specifically, we offer:

  • Overnight in-home dog sitting
  • Cat sitting
  • Hourly pet sitting
  • Weekend pet sitting
  • Holiday sitting
  • Multiple-pet overnight sitting

Contact us today to choose the right option for your pet.

Pet Sitting

An overnight pet sitting allows your pet to stay in your home while you’re away, comfortable and stress-free in the environment and routine they know and are most comfortable in. One of our Pet Care Specialists will spend the night in your home and let your pets do what’s natural — whether it’s sleeping under the covers if that’s what they’re used to or playing until they’re tuckered out and watching Netflix until bedtime.

Whatever your pet’s routine is and your care instructions are for them, our team will do their utmost to ease any separation anxiety they might have by maintaining your pet’s regular, daily routine and keeping them company.

Our overnight sittings include:

  • 3 daily dog walks
  • A before-bedtime potty break
  • Daily feeding
  • Daily play, care, and attention
  • Administering medicine (including insulin injections for diabetic cats)
  • Any additional instructions you may provide for our Pet Care Specialists

While staying in your home, our team can also look after any indoor plants you may have, retrieve your mail, and take out the trash.

Our dog and cat sittings begin at $156.00 per weeknight, plus $20.00 per additional pet, and are scheduled in 24-hour increments. A $15.00 surcharge is added for weekend nights. On dates surrounding major holidays, our rate is $200.00 plus applicable weekend surcharges where applicable.

All overnight services are pre-paid and non-refundable. Overnight services cancelled 14 days or more in advance — 30 days for all holiday-rate periods — receive 50% credit toward future services. Overnight services cancellations with less than 14 days’ notice — 30 days for all holiday-rate periods — charged in full to respect our pet care specialist’s scheduling commitments and declined alternative assignments.
