About Debbie Hillery-pettigrew:


I am a fully vaccinated travel aficionado who has been blessed to visit most of the continental US as a professional marketer and event planner.
As a grandma, I enjoy spending time with my littlest heartthrob; love meeting new people, places and pets. I've yet to find the will to replace my beloved pug after 12 years together so, I've got lots of love to shower on your pet! He went on all our vacations so I get why you'd need a loving sitter if you can't take them with you.

For areas where this is a concern, I meet the age requirement for 100% active adult communities.
I also welcome the opportunity for longer term (30 days+) sits. Areas on my international ‘to go’ list include Ecuador, Mexico, Turkey, Portugal and Panama.

For homeowners who prefer a couple, I've recently teamed up with another 5star housesitter, creating quite the dynamic duo of sitters! Darrel is a professional animal handler and breeder, as comfortable with responsibilities outside the home as inside. Growing up on a farm and having experience as an international landlord creates our winning team.

I (we) have a 5Star rating with another housesitting agency and am happy to share reviews and provide references. I hope to be of service and provide quality card for your home/pet.

Care of large breed rescue/5 day sit.

I had the pleasure of meeting Debbie before and after our trip, and what a beautiful soul she is! Exactly the kind of person you would want to take care of your house and your pets. She was extremely self-sufficient, tidy, and reliable. She left our house even cleaner than we left it which was so nice to come home to - thank you, Debbie!!

Care of one pug/10 day sit/use of vehicle.

Debbie was fabulous as a housesitter. It didn't take her long to become best friends with my pug, Skippy. When we returned from our trip, I was surprised by the way Skippy was behaving with Debbie. For a while there I thought I might lose her!!! Thank you Debbie, I hope you enjoyed the sit as much as we were happy having you as the housesitter.

Care of one dog/10 day sit/use of vehicle

Debbie sets the standard for house sitters. She reached out to me before the sit to confirm, even though we had a video meeting beforehand. During the sit, she asked that I text her upon arriving at my destination just to make sure all was fine, she did the same, and texted me midway through a snap shot of my dog and brief report. Debbie also drove me to the airport! The house was clean and the linens washed when I came home. I highly recommend Debbie for housesitting!

Homeowner in Fremont, California

Care of one cat/3 week sit with use of vehicle.

well I think I have a new friend. Debby was a God send, She did an excellent job sitting for us, at a very difficult time. She kept our house safe and George (the cat) happy in an environment that was at best tricky. She is very friendly and calm, and reacted to the unexpected with the poise and the gentle authority of a saint. anyone who invites her into there home can be assured that all will be well when you return.

Debbie recently sat for our cat for 2 weeks. She was very communicative and professional leading up to and during the sit. We arrived home to a very clean home and a well cared for cat. I’d highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a Housesitter!

Homeowner in West Springfield, Virginia

3 week stay and care of one large breed dog.

Debbie is a dream house sitter and we feel very lucky that she--and her amazing granddaughter--took care of our dog, Molly. We were away for three weeks and, we have to say, everything was perfect. Debbie kept us up to date with photos/texts and we felt so comfortable and confident with her that we were really able to enjoy our vacation. She is reliable and self-sufficient, and has a very calming demeanor. It was obvious that Molly loved her and bonded with her granddaughter, too. Added bonus: it was such a treat to return to an absolutely spotless home. I highly recommend Debbie for any house sit and would welcome her to our home again!

Care of 2 cats/10 day sit.

Debbie was a wonderful housesitter for our home and 2 cats while we were visiting relatives for a week. She was frequently in communication with us, and answered questions promptly. We had 2 happy cats when we returned home, as well as a clean house and clean linens. I really appreciated her attention to detail, reliability, and thoughtfulness. She comes with my highest recommendation!
