About Us: BBB A+ Accredited Pet Care Business Sitters4Critters

Special Connection With Your Pets 1 Paw at a Time!

Tristan Hamburg, owner and creator of Sitters4Critters. In grade school they often called me “Tristan Hamburger.” In high school I was “The Hamburgular.” Four years later in veterinary sciences school I was named “T-money” as I created my first pet care company in college.  (I’ll still answer if you call me Mr. Hamburger.)

Sitters4Critters ® is the trusted, compassionate and cuddly pet care company that graces you and your pets with a wide range of services in the Philadelphia and South Jersey region. As a friendly alternative to kennels and boarding, we can watch your pets in the comfort of your own home or an exclusive guest house, eliminating unneeded stress for you both. Our bonded and insured company additionally provides dog-walking and other pet care services arranged to suit your specific schedule and needs.

Experience a Special Connection

We know how important it is for you and your pet to feel safe and secure while you’re apart, which is why we aim to create a special bond that can help you both feel at ease. Our pet care professionals are avid pet-lovers who treat your beloved animals with the same adoration and attention they lavish on their own.

When your dog or cat creates a close bond with a specific caregiver, you can request that caregiver each and every time you’re away. If the person is available, your pet can enjoy being cared for by someone he or she already knows and trusts.

This can cut down on stress levels immensely, as can keeping your pet on his or her usual routine. Routine is particularly important for the well-being of pets, and we’ll adhere to the feeding, playing, walking and other scheduled activities your pets have come to expect.

We’re also big on staying up-to-date on the latest advances in professional pet care, which is why we attend an annual pet industry training conference. Advanced training and loads of love are not the only two things that set Sitters4Critters apart from the rest.

    review rating 5  I think we found the best cat sitter for my Tabby. My cat Toby is almost 12 years old now and requires lots of love and attention. I never worry about my cats care when I go away!

    review rating 5  I have not been with SITTERS FOR CRITTERS for long, but both my dog, Zoey, and I have come to love and depend on our walker---Shayna. She is loving and really great with Zoey which is no small feat because Zoey is a rescue and came to me with trust issues. But she loves Shayna and is always happy to see her. As wonderful as she is with Zoey, she is even more terrific with me. She is so accommodating and no matter how many times I throw changes in times and dates she is always there when I need her. Zoey and I are soooo blessed to have Shayna in our "family"

  • review rating 5  We recently adopted a four month old pup Paisley, it all happened so fast. Sitters4Critters owner Tristan was quick to respond to my plea for a dog walker the next day.. Nicole is hands down the sweetest most attentive person that I have not been able to meet in person. She constantly gives us a check in about when she will arrive. It has been such a huge burden lifted off our shoulders knowing our little Paisley is being well cared for her mid-day walk. A huge thank you to Nicole we so appreciate you taking such great care of her!

    review rating 5  Very reliable dog walkers. I have a GSD 11 years old and he needs frequent walks. These guys are flexible

    thumb John Pekar

    review rating 5  The dog walking services are affordable! Why not pay the extra $3 per walk for a professional? My dogs Goose and Lilly are tired and happy after Jenn walks them. Very trustworthy! Thanks

  • review rating 5  We have been using this service for several months now and the experience is always GREAT!!!! We have 3 dogs and a cat; one of dogs is diabetic and needs regular insulin shots and eye drops due to his cataract surgery. Sitters 4 Critters is happy to administer what is needed and everyone is always in great shape when we get home. If you're looking for a pet sitter you should give this service a try. I'm pretty sure you and your pets will be happy :D

    review rating 5  Feb 14th My Coco had to go to Unv. of Pa to see a heart dr. I am disablied & have no family or anyone but me & Coco. My Baby is 10 years old & it is just me & her . So I needed to get her to the dr. I find Sitters For Critters & I spoke to Tristen on the phone & he was so nice to me , He was so concerned & wanted to help me. He sent Shayna Mention. I was crying & so upset that my Coco would get upset too , to go with someone she did not know. Oh Shayna she came in & was so sweet to me & Coco. My Coco went with she & I asked her to please carry Coco because she pulls when we use to walk. So she pick up my llittle baby & talk to her & hugged her & spoke to her . She was an angel with my Coco , they leave & I was crying thinking my Coco would be upset. Shayna called me & keep me in the loop how Coco was & let me know when they were coming home. When they did get home I called my Coco to come to me , But she was so busy wanting Shayna to pat her & she even walked her to the door & wanted to go with her again. This company is the best & they treat your pet like their own. I want to give them 10 stars because that is how wonderful the company is & Tristen & Shayna are. I would NEVER use anyone but this company. TAKE MY WORD USE THIS COMPANY They are the best & no one can be as nice to your pet as they were. I loved this company & would call them for all services for my Baby. .Thank you for all you did for me & for how great you were with my Coco & they will do the same for all pets . Thank you again Kathy Morse

    review rating 5  I live in Roxborough section of Philadelphia and my dog walker, Tristan with Sitters4Critters, has been working with my bull dog "Jordan" for over a year now. Jordan has aggressive issues with other dogs. Tristan is strong enough to handle Jordan's act of aggressiveness. I am handicapped, veteran, stay in bed, and thankful for Tristan for being a reliable pet sitter.
