Get Started Petsitting • How to Be a Petsitter

Hello! Nice to meet you. I'm Dawn. I created a life I love and one that brings love to animals around the world—and peace of mind to their humans. I have completed extended stays of 2 weeks to 3 years in Ireland, France, and England plus stays up to a year here in the US.

I feel fortunate that my location-independent work as a writer and artist affords me the freedom to share love with so many beloved pets. Often it supports my writing and art, too!

When you have to be away, we'll be right there.

Right There Pet Care - Bedford Virginia Petsitting Dawn Richerson - Housesitting ServicesHire Dawn to care for your animals. 

I've cared for a variety of breeds of dogs, cats and other pets great and small. Even chickens, rabbits, hamsters and donkeys plus the occasional gecko (no snakes or rats please;). We provide photos of your pets and adapt to their routine. Home base is Central Virginia—and I love travel! 

Contact Dawn with your travel dates or to arrange for local and regional feed, walk and play visits (currently in Bedford County, Virginia) or, depending on my availability, for overnight stays in your home. I do still travel for extended stays of one week or more and consider exchanges on a case by case basis for overseas locations. You can also find me on Rover. *
