Service Policy

Inclement Weather (Ice, Freezing Rain, Snow, Windstorms, etc)

With the wintry weather here, Paw Keepers would like to remind clients with daily pet care service, that your sitter will make every effort to drive safely to your home.  Should the weather cause road conditions to be hazardous, scheduled service may be changed, interrupted, or canceled due to circumstances.  If it is not possible to drive safely to your home, your sitter will notify you at work or by text message. 

  • Clients must call Paw Keepers (703) 445-8090 to cancel or check pet sitter availability by 7:30a.m. that morning.

  • If the sitter is not able to park in front of your property, and walk-up service is required to get to your home, an additional $5.00 per visit will be charged.

  • If there are 2 inches or more of snow and/or any ice, we kindly request,  your sidewalks and steps to be cleared of the safety hazard for our sitter and your pets to use the walks safely

All Scheduled Service Cancelled

When the federal government, county, or state offices are CLOSED due to severe/inclement weather, all scheduled services will be canceled.   

Paw Keepers reserves the right to cancel scheduled service if severe weather makes conditions dangerous for driving and/or walking.

  •  Clients requesting service on severe/inclement snow days will be charged an additional $16 per visit.

During inclement weather Paw Keepers considers the safety of the pets and the sitter our first priority.    Announcements of changes in service will be emailed to affected clients and posted on the Paw Keepers website.  Please carry our number, 703-445-8090; we will update our voicemail with any relevant information.
