I am so thankful for Oceanair Pet Care! Deb takes such good care of my outside dog, Zoe! She responds quickly when I text her, while we are away, and she sent pictures of our dog sometimes. Deb went above duty when the weather was really cold and the water at our house froze. She had to bring water each time she came and worked on Zoe's bed area to try to keep her out of the strong, cold wind. I'm sure Deb would do whatever necessary to take care of a pet under her charge! I don't worry about Zoe when we are gone, because Deb loves her so well!

After moving to the area 3 years ago, we finally have found a pet sitter that we feel we can trust to act in a professional manner and care for our cats. Recently, she cared for two kittens that we were worried to leave alone for an extended weekend. Deb showed up three times a day within a few minutes of our agreed upon time. The cats were fed, played with, and the litter boxes were cleaned. For an added nice touch she left us a journal of each visit and texted us photos of our fur babies while we were gone. Cats are happy, owners are happy: what more could you wish for?
— Larry Bubba Harmon
Deb is truly one of the best sitters I’ve ever had! She is always quick to respond to date requests, is prompt with responding to texts while I’m away, and most importantly she loves my sweet kitty so well! She always leaves notes for each day she is here and she often sends pictures which makes me feel so good! She takes care of house things such as mail and putting out the trash. I travel for work and I know my cat is in good and safe hands with Deb. I’m so glad we found her! I’d recommend her services to anyone.
— Rebecca Waters
Deb, I just want to thank you for all you did for my girls. Meeka and Mali loved staying at your house with you and Reggie. We miss our girls so and I know they missed ya'll when you moved. I want to get a new puppy and I would do it today if you were here to help care for it. We will have to wait now until we are home more. We still have hopes of finding Mali as well. So glad God sent someone like you to care for and love dogs. We will never be able to replace you!
— Jill Hart Bouska
I highly recommend Deb for any of your pet care needs. Deb took care of my pups for several years when she lived in Texas. She was absolutely wonderful with my three pups...a Japanese Chin (Bella), a Maltipoo (Freddy) and a Pekinese mix (Poppy). Exact time of visit was critical as Bella took anti-seizure medication and it was important it be given exactly every eight hours. Deb was always on time....the neighbors would sometimes comment on how punctual she was in coming at the same time every day. When I'd vacation she would do three-a-day visits, one every eight hours. Deb was very dependable, always did a great job and the pups loved her. If you want great pet care, call Deb/Oceanair Pet Care.
