Choose Fetch! for our experienced, vetted, animal loving pet sitters

Our Sitters Are Thoroughly Vetted

We do our due diligence when hiring to make sure every single one of our sitters is not only safe and reliable but that they have a true passion for pets and people.

All of Our Sitters:

  • Must pass a mandatory background check.
  • Go through an in-depth interview process.
  • Are required to provide any essential personal information.
  • Are required to be bonded and insured.
  • Are pet first aid/CPR trained and certified.

Meet Your Sitter Before You Schedule

We believe that you and your pet should feel as comfortable as possible with your sitter before our scheduled service takes place. That’s why we offer a free in-home consultation before your first service begins. This gives everyone a chance to get to know each other and make sure that this is a good fit.

You’ll Get The Same Trusted Sitter Every Time

When you schedule a service with us, we’ll partner you with a primary and back-up pet sitter based on your needs and schedule. You’ll have the chance to meet these nearby sitters and once you approve of them, we’ll assign them to your account. Any time you schedule services thereafter, you’ll receive care from your primary or back-up sitter. This way you know your pet is getting care from someone you (and they) know, trust, and like every time.

We’ve Earned a Glowing Reputation

With tens of thousands of satisfied clients nationwide, we’ve earned a solid reputation as the most trusted and reliable pet care service in the country. And it isn’t just Fetch as a company. Each of our sitters come with fantastic reviews of their own and our local owners are constantly reviewing feedback surveys to ensure it stays that way.

Meet The Owner


My name is Emmy Gjurgjiali and I’m the proud owner of Fetch! Pet Care of Central Chicago. I came to the US as a war refugee when I was very young and have called Chicago my home ever since. My toy poodle Albert Einstein, or Alby for short, has and will always be my world. His safety and wellbeing have always been essential to me, so when it came time to entrust someone else with Alby’s care, you can imagine how picky I’d be! After careful research and extensive background checks on every pet care service possible, I decided to open my own business – one that truly prioritizes the pet’s safety and wellbeing above all else. It’s been an amazing journey and I’ve been honored to meet fellow pet owners who take their fur babies just as seriously as I do mine. When you choose Fetch!, your little ones will be treated like family!

Asya - General Manager

My name is Asya Hill, I am a long time pet lover and owner. I have owned a number of dogs and cats in the past but I currently have two cats, Gracia (14) and Onyx (2). Outside of being a pet owner I also have ample experience in the pet care field. In 2018 I began volunteering at The Anti-Cruelty Society as an Adoption Center volunteer. During my time there I learned pet handling skills, worked with a variety of animals, and fostered pets who have been temporarily displaced. Since 2020 I have also worked as an independent pet sitter across the Chicago area, working with both dogs and cats of all types.


My name is Natalie Kalich, and I am an experienced pet caregiver who loves all animals. I have cared for dogs and cats (and even chickens!) and am experienced in caring for puppies and kittens as well as senior animals. Also, I have lived in Chicago for 18 years and love to be outside, so I am familiar with most neighborhoods and walking routes. I am excited to meet you and your furry family members!


My name is Izzy and I’m a student at the University of Chicago! I have been working in animal rescue and fostering for about 8 years and have two cats of my own! I have rehabilitated and fostered both dogs and cats, and even rode horses competitively for 12 years! In my free time, I love to visit local animal shelters and spend quality time with the animals to socialize them and get them outside. I am looking forward to providing your beloved pet with the love and care they deserve!


My name is Julia – I’m a college student and an artist! Born and raised in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs, I moved to the city 3 years ago. As an avid animal lover, caring for pets is one of my biggest passions. I’m a well-trained and experienced dog walker & pet caretaker, including professional experience. I got my first dog, Louie the yorkie-poo, when I was 10 and he is my whole heart. I potty trained him, taught him 10+ tricks, and walked him everyday until I moved out for college. I’ve taken care of my family’s pets and a lot of neighbors’ pets, as a child until I moved out, including birds and fish! I have professional dog walking experience along with a year’s experience as a dog handler and kennel attendant for a boarding/daycare facility. My ultimate goal is to ensure the happiness, health, and love of every animal I meet. I take the time to understand each pet’s unique personality and care needs, treating them as if they’re my own! Whether it’s walking, feeding, or providing companionship, I am dedicated to creating a fun and nurturing environment. I can’t wait to meet your fur baby and provide them with exceptional care!


My name is Jasmine Vasquez. I have lived in Chicago all my life and have always been an animal lover! I had a pit bull named Shakira (16) and currently have two amazing dachshunds that I adopted last year, Lucy (10) and Cyrus (5). I have never seen myself doing anything other than caring for pets since I was a kid. I always watched over family members or friends’ dogs while they were away or always tried to have dog play dates. I have experience with being a dog daycare attendant for close to 3 years and as a dog walker for a daycare/ boarding facility. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and handle a lot of different breeds, sizes, and also build some great relationships with the dogs and their owners. I can’t wait to meet your fur baby and give them the best care they deserve!
