It’s more than a walk, it’s a life saver

Saving Grace Pet Care offers scheduled dog walking, dog boarding, pet sitting, and dog day care in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC. Let us help you enjoy a happier pet and the freedom you will feel knowing they’re being cared for by experienced, loving professionals.

Here are some of the benefits of working with a local pet care company like Saving Grace.

Professionalism – We’ve been at this since 2000 and know what we’re doing. We have a full staff of dedicated office managers to answer emails, return phone calls and sort out your pet’s busy schedule.

Security – We tag and code our keys so that only our Key Master can track them down to a particular home. We use lockboxes to make sure keys always remain in your possession and even help if you get locked out.

Injuries – Our Pet Care Professionals are fully-vetted employees; most have been with us for over five years. No worries about your dog inadvertently hurting the pet sitter and you getting stuck with the hospital bill or injury to the pet sitter working inside your home should they slip, fall, or cut themselves on a can of pet food.

Liability Insurance – Liability insurance protects you and your pet sitter on the rare occasion things go wrong. Unfortunately not all independent pet sitters carry this type of insurance and if you are hiring through an app, it is important to ask the independent contractor if they carry it.

Knowledge – Saving Grace is staffed with your local neighborhood pet lovers. You can meet them face-to-face and know they’re dedicated to your pet’s care, comfort and happiness. Anyone who comes to your home is thoroughly trained in pet care, safety and behavior, plus they’re specifically updated on all your pet’s special needs. We are in it for the animals and the humans who love them, not as a side hustle for a few extra bucks.

When you select Saving Grace as your local pet care company, you can rest assured your pet will likely see the same pet sitter or dog walker at each booking.

Proudly serving the Brookland, Capitol Hill, Hill East, and NoMa areas of Washington, DC.

Let us take your pup out for a mid-day stroll. Love and adoration included.

Kind words from clients

He truly went above and beyond to help me out

Happy black and white dog

I just wanted to write you to let you know how wonderful Patrick has been. A few weeks ago I locked myself out of the house, and since Patrick was the only one I thought might have an extra key, I called him for help. He came within 15 minutes with our key on hand. He truly went above and beyond to help me out and I can’t thank him enough. Beyond that, Patrick has been great with the dogs and very reliable this past year – I will be sad to lose him but couldn’t think of a better person to help expand the Saving Grace business. Thanks again to him and your team for being so wonderful!

You all are truly the best! I will be recommending Saving Grace to everyone I know on the Hill. Thank you. Knowing that Delta is well taken care of during this stressful time, is such a relief.
