Dear Pet Parents,
I hope this message finds you and your family well and happy in these challenging times. The Pet Sitter of Boise (TPS) Team is doing its best to rise to the challenges brought on by the spread of COVID-19.

Status Update

TPS has had to lay off some of the Team Members upon whom we have relied. TPS Management had to make that difficult decision for two main reasons: the health and safety of the Team Members and the business needs of the company. As conditions improve, TPS management hopes to bring back as many Team Members as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that TPS has Team Members available should you need us.

Thank You for Doing Your Part

Pet parents who use TPS services work in a variety of different fields. Many of you are doing your best to help communities to “flatten the curve” by sheltering-in-place, self-quarantining, and limiting yourselves to essential absences from home.
In addition, many of you are essential for each of us to enjoy continued health and safety or to receive care and comfort should we fall ill. TPS Team Members are grateful to the essential workers who are treating and caring for the sick; keeping grocery stores stocked; serving food through windows and at doors; delivering food, mail and packages; feeding, teaching, and entertaining school-age children; and much more. Those of you doing so much for our community may not be able to shelter in place, and may need assistance with pet care. If you find yourself in this situation, The Pet Sitter of Boise Team Members are here, still in the business of caring for the furred and fanged, scaled and feathered.

Safety First

TPS Team Members are being cautious and using the recommended methods to prevent the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19:

  • washing hands with soap and clean, running water for at least 20 seconds
    • upon arrival and departure of each visit
    • before and after touching any pets
    • before and after touching any surfaces during the visit
  • using a piece of clothing, a cloth such as a handkerchief, a paper towel, or even a pet-waste collection bag when using doorknobs and handles
  • cleaning keypads, lockboxes, and the keys themselves before use

If you have any suggestions for additional preventative methods, please send us a message.

If You Need Us, We Will Be There

If your pets need care, please call the office at 208-484-2969, email, or schedule online at TPS Team Members are also looking for the light at the end of the tunnel and the resumption of normal life. To that end, if you are optimistically planning a trip, go ahead and schedule the pet visits. TPS will work with you should changes be necessary. We’re all in this together!

Best regards,

Julie Fredrick
The Pet Sitter of Boise
