Meredith De Olavarria

About Us

Meredith De Olavarria was a frequent traveler and faced challenges to accommodate her then 13-year-old miniature schnauzer, Leslie. Kennels weren’t an option because Leslie was diagnosed with various pancreatitis issues. As she grew older, she needed more care and attention.

Meredith wanted Leslie to be comfortable in her own familiar environment while being cared for. Back then, there weren’t any formal pet sitting companies in and around the Houston area. Hence, Meredith had to depend on friends and family which became a burden for them over time.

It was in 2002 that Meredith decided to start a pet sitting service called Urban Pet Sitting to help many pet owners like her to travel without worries.

Michael B.

As a dog trainer and behavior consultant, I set the bar sometimes ridiculously high when it comes to pet care. Urban Pet Sitting cleared the bar with room to spare. They were excellent.
Here's what I liked the most. I got daily updates and photos on WhatsApp from the sitters staying at the house with our dogs. In addition to caring for the dogs so well, they also kept a close eye on the house which was so important to us.
Scheduling was easy and Meredith really went above and beyond to accommodate us. So cool.
This group really has a genuine care for the animals and for their human clients. That is the magical combination that makes them so effective and successful.

I highly recommend.

Urban Pet Sitting, thank you so much for all your attention to detail with our animals. We really appreciated all the notes Kim left for us on a daily basis. We felt like we knew what was going on back here at home.

Thank you for all your special attention with Fred. We know he was well cared for in our absence. He looked great and acted as he felt well when we returned. Fred is a special kitty that we know requires a lot of care. Thanks for the daily notes so that we could see how much IV fluid was administered during the week. You guys are all wonderful.

Thank you so much for the phone call last Saturday night when our alarm went off during hurricane Ike. We knew every little detail in our client file was being addressed. We will definitely use Urban Pet Sitting again and refer all of our other pet loving friends. Thank you, thank you.

I found myself in the hospital for almost two weeks and I had two cats left on their own. Urban Pet Sitting came to the rescue and provided the care both of my cats needed while I was laid up. I must say, that I did not worry about my cats. They were happy to see me upon my return, but I feel comfortable they never felt neglected. Urban Pet Sitting came to my rescue.
