Our own pet family members are not just "pets" to us, they are treasured members of our family. We know that you may feel the same way... That's why you're here. We love our pets and feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to share our lives with our "fur kids." Rest assured that when we care for your pets, they will be treated with the same care and respect as our own pets while you are away.

 A Lifetime of Caring for Pets

Many of the pets that I have been blessed to share my life with over the years have been rescued in some way, either by myself or by others.

Some have been rescued off busy streets, or after being hit by a car. Some have been rescued from animal shelters, still others from people who no longer wanted them for some reason...

When I was a child, my Mum would always joke that we had a huge blinking neon sign on the roof of our home saying:

"Free Room and Board for all Animals."

We rescued and adopted a plethora of pets in my childhood years and that noble and caring tradition continues to this day.  Since I was a very young lad, I have always been passionate about animals. In my early childhood and throughout my adult years, our family's pets have included Dogs, Cats, Birds (Parakeets), Freshwater Fish (Arowana's, Tetras, Oranda's, Bubble Eye's, Fantail's, Veiltail's, Lionhead's and Black Moor Goldfish), Saltwater Fish and others (Lionfish, a Snowflake Moray Eel, a Clown Trigger Fish, Hawaiian Flame Lobsters, an Octopus and various Invertebrates), Snakes (Boa Constrictors and Rat Snakes), Turtles (Red-Eared and an Alligator Snapping Turtle!), a Ferret and Gerbils to name a few.

I'm the kind of guy who still stops on the shoulder of a busy road to help a turtle cross safely. Being compassionate and concerned about the health and safety of animals still resonates with me to this day. Our pets enrich our lives so much every single day and we only want the best for them...The best food, the best veterinary care and the best loving environment that we can provide. We simply cannot imagine our lives without our pets.

If you're looking for someone who is as compassionate and concerned for your pets as you are, your search is over. Castor Creek Petsitting, LLC will exceed your expectations and earn your trust every single day. Call us at (713) 826-0046 to schedule your free initial consultation. We would love to meet you and your treasured pet family members.

"We have known Steve for 20 years. He took care of Misty, our Cocker Spaniel for many years and he now takes care of Baylor, our Black Labrador. Steve is very good with animals and they all seem to love him...When Baylor sees him, she starts wagging her tail and wants us to let her go see him. Steve watched Baylor while we were on vacation two weeks ago.

He kept us informed of how she was doing each day and he also sent us a picture of her everyday. She was very happy and very well taken care of during our vacation. I would recommend using Steve and Castor Creek Petsitting to anyone looking for in-home pet sitting services for their pets."
