Complete List of Cat Sitter Rates for Philadelphia, PA
Below is a comprehensive list of cat sitter rates for companies for companies in Philadelphia, PA. Most have a standard cat sitter rate, though some have higher rates for different reasons. I link to their service area page if they have one. Otherwise, the link goes to their rates page.
The table lists 38 companies that have websites and that list their cat sitter rates If you can’t find a company in your area, there are cat sitters that do not have websites. Most of the time they will have Facebook business listings. You should also try sites that list local businesses like Yelp, Merchant Circle, Google Business listings, etc.
I used a dash ( – ) in the table for two reasons. The first obvious one is if a company does not have a cat sitter rate for a particular visit time. In that case, the dash would be under both the minimum and maximum columns. I also used a dash under the “max” column if they just have a single rate for the visit time. I did not want to clutter the table with repeating numbers. Take a look at my rates under Fairmount Pet Service. My 15 & 20-minute visits are a flat $12 and $15 respectively, but my 30-minute visit ranges from $$18 to $21.
Cat Sitter Max & Min Rates and Additional Fees
- Table “Min” values: This is the minimum or standard rate for each company. It may also be a discounted rate for a certain amount of visits per week.
- Table “Max” values: This is a higher rate that usually includes fees for night or weekend visits or visits during “off-peak” times. Or the higher rate may be if you do not meet the minimum # of visits per week for the discounted rate.
- Additional fees: Part of the “max” number are surcharges for nights and weekends. Also common are charges or fees for more than one cat, off-peak visit times and administering medicine. If you have more than one cat, the extra fee that some companies have is for 2 or more cats. But most either do not charge for additional cats or have a surcharge for more than 3 cats.
Here are some of the service areas that I found for each site. If you see a “+” sign and a number, then that is the number of additional surrounding neighborhoods that the company services. If you know you live close to the service area listed, then they may also service your area. Here is a zip code map for Philadelphia if you are new to the city.
