Government and Hospital Resources

Pet Industry

The following have been labeled as “essential businesses” in relation to the Pet Industry:

• Animal Care Providers

• Pet Supply Stores

• Veterinarians

Therefore, The Savvy Sitter will remain OPEN for business unless otherwise instructed, but ultimately we will honor whatever decision our clients will make. Please note that we are taking the following measures to ensure our clients’ health and safety:

• Sanitizing our hands with disinfectant before entering and after leaving a home.

• We ordered Reusable Cloth Face Masks from Lavender Menace, a local Dog Bandana Company. This custom mask has a matching duplicate mask which we may donate to a frontline worker or a worker in the healthcare system. These masks are reusable; you simply wash and dry as you would regular laundry in order to use them again and again. You can order one for yourself if you would like here on their website.

• New Poop Bags can be used as hand gloves for extra protection and then used for the original purpose after.



Below is some of the small business that will have some grocery supplies that you need including fresh fruit, vegetables, dry goods, bread, dairy, and meat.
