Communities We Serve & Description Of Services OfferedWe proudly serve all of Ruskin, Apollo Beach and Sun City Center. References available upon request, or check our website photos for referrals from our clients. Oliver and Company is licensed, bonded, insured and a proud member of Pet Sitters International since our beginning in 2009.
Daily in-home visits are 30 minutes long and can include any number of other services such as plant watering, mail and newspaper pick-up, garbage put out or brought in, and any other small household tasks that need to be done. If you only need one visit every now and then or you need an entire month of visits, that is no problem at all.
If you are gone for several days, dogs usually will do best with 2 or more visits per day, and each visit can include a walk at no extra charge and feeding and making sure the water bowl is full and clean, as well as plenty of affection and attention.
Cats can be fine with one visit per day, but many clients like two visits per day for their cats, morning and evening. Each visit for a cat includes litter box cleaning at no extra charge and feeding and making sure the water bowl is full and clean, as well as plenty of affection and attention.
Medication can be given each visit at no extra charge, including shots, but keep in mind that if a cat requires a shot you may want to leave that to a vet, as sometimes cats can be very difficult to give shots to.
About UsOliver Tort, Founder and Owner:
I have lived in Ruskin all my life and my family has been a well-known part of the community for over thirty years. I graduated from USF Tampa in 2008 with a Bachelors in Communications. I have always loved animals and have been pet sitting for my family for years, so it only seemed natural for me to start a pet sitting company.
My TeamPutting together Oliver & Company Pet Sitting was a group effort, and I couldn't have done it without the help of all of my family and friends. My Mom Claire Tort is a well-known Real-Estate Agent in Ruskin and Sun City Center and has been promoting my business from the start. She was the one who pitched the idea of me starting a petsitting business because of my experience with pet sitting for the family. She has helped me in many ways with my business so far and is still a regular consultant for me. My Dad Eric Tort is part-owner of Sun City Tree Farms, which has been a part of the community for 30 years now, and has also been a long-time supporter of CARE in Ruskin, a no-kill animal shelter. He has been a huge supporter of my business from the start and has provided me with many good ideas. My cousin Vincent Tort took an entire day to help me put together my business cards, and my brother Francois and my sister Magali have also been limitless fountains of ideas for my business. My Grampa Henri Tort, also a long-time supporter of CARE and an all-around animal lover, has been my source of wisdom on many topics thus far. Last but not least is Gail Cantin, owner and manager of C PETS, LLC, a petsitting company in Virginia. She has passed a lot of her knowledge about the profession of petsitting on to me and has been a huge help every step of the way.
