We've been using Furrypeople to take care of our two dogs for close to three years and have not been disappointed. Debra is professional, friendly and quick to contact me if she has concerns regarding the dogs. Best of all, the dogs love her.

Debra and Furry People Pet Sitting care for our cats and dog like they are their pet parents. I am completely confident that my pets will be taken care of just as well, if not better, than we do on a daily basis. Every individual we have met through Furry People Pet Sitting has been professional, knowledgeable, dependable, and caring. Our pets are happy and healthy when we return from our vacations – which last from a few days to almost two weeks. Also, when we had an unexpected reason to be away Debra was able to fit us into her busy schedule at a moment’s notice.
Debra has gone above and beyond simply caring for our pets. When our newly adopted dog, Miles, got very sick and I needed advise on caring for him Debra didn’t just simply talk with me on the phone, she dropped everything and drove to us to assess the situation in person. Her care and guidance quite possibly saved Miles’s life! With my limited knowledge of dogs when we first adopted Miles Debra was always available to answer any question I may have had or even to calm me down when he was so ill. It’s a great comfort to know that the person and company I entrust to care for my furry children really have their best interests at heart.
Debra and Furry People Pet Sitters have my highest recommendation for taking care of any pet.

Furry People Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver for our family. Our cats adore and trust Debra, and we arrive home from trips to relaxed and happy pets. Debra was also able to give our diabetic cat the insulin injections he needed, which was peace of mind for us. Debra has cared for our cats for several years now, and we find her to be extremely reliable, caring and knowledgeable. She's really part of the family!

Leaving my pets in the hands of a pet sitter is not an easy thing to do. Not just anyone meets the requirements. It takes an extremely mature, responsible individual with a “way” with animals, to be able to handle their basic needs, keep them happy, exercised (when appropriate) and carefully watched for any possible unforeseen problems that might occur. In addition, it means giving access to my home and all that is within. It’s not easy and requires a special person.
That being said, I feel totally comfortable leaving Deb Gallo in charge! I’ve known Deb, for years as a talented, and resourceful assistant at the Croton Animal Hospital. She has also cared for my Yellow Lab, Harry and my cats, Lola and Jack with ease. With Deb in charge, I know they are in the best of hands, and I’m always able to leave knowing that they will receive the best care possible.

I rarely write reviews for any service or product I use, but I felt compelled to write how great my experience was with Furry People Pet Sitting. I was gone for the holidays and Freddy took care of my two cats while I was gone. Everything went without a hitch and I was greeted by two spoiled kitties upon my return. Freddy left a report of how they were while I was gone and even mentioned how one of my cats demanded belly rubs. (Belly rubs only come from people my cat trusts.) I have to admit I was very impressed by the level of service and respect I and my cats received. Whenever I travel in the future, I will without a doubt be using Furry People Pet Sitting to watch over my cats.
Debra and her staff at Furry People Pet Sitting have become an integral part of my family over the years. I can always count on them to be on time, take care of my pets and they consistently show concern for my family, pets and children alike.
They treat my pets as I would treat them and I have total confidence that everything is ok while I am at work.
I would recommend Debra & Co. to anyone looking for someone trustworthy and caring to take care of their pets.
Debra is the best -- very reliable and very kind! The animals love her; We think almost as much as she loves them. Having multiple animals, on multiple meds, it is invaluable to have someone like Debra. We cannot stress enough how great it is to be able to go away and know our furry babies are being so well cared for. We recommend her highly to all.

We have been in the area since 2002 and have used a variety of pet walking and over night services. In general we were not satisfied, mostly because we were not confident in the level of service or commitment. Going on vacation was stressful because of the concern we had leaving our pets behind under those circumstances. About two years ago we were referred to Furry People Pet Sitting and from the first interview we knew we were dealing with professionals. We utilize pet walking and overnight services. Furry People is completely reliable, trustworthy and they genuinely care for our pets (3 dogs and a bird) who are always delighted to see them. Even the bird chirps loudly when they come. We also have comfort knowing our house is being occupied while we are away. An added plus is not having to worry about incidentals like mail, newspapers and plants. We highly recommend them.
-Carolyn & Jim Wayrynen
More than simply pleased... I have "peace of mind" when away, that given my multiple pet household (some with special needs and challenges), is no easy task. Having already known Debra to be a very capable and caring veterinary assistant (who worked at my vet's office) and had cared for my pets over the years in that capacity, I was thrilled to learn that she had started a pet sitting and services business. I can honestly say, I have never been more comfortable leaving my pets in someone else's care than I have been with Debra... I know they are in hands of someone truly "qualified" with the highest level of skills, both personal and professional, to care for them!
Furry People Pet Sitting looked after my 9 year old cat for two weeks. I had previously put him in a kennel for extended periods but after a bad experience, I decided that he would be much happier at home. When we arrived home, I could tell that he had been petted and brushed while we were away and it was so nice to have him around instead of hiding under a bed for 2 days, or more, as he would've done if he'd been boarded. I highly recommend using Furry People, I have confidence in the professional employees that they are visiting every day and taking care of my cat with genuine love and affection.
I recommend Furry Pet Sitting, I have used them for 4 years and have been very pleased with the service. My Dog loves when they come over as she gets the play and exercise needed for a high energy dog. They are very accommodating to your needs.
Furry People Pet Sitting provides first rate service and Debra is completely dependable, caring and knowledgeable. It is very reassuring to know that Debra and her team is there to provide comprehensive care -- everything from food to play to medical attention -- for our pets whether we are away for a weekend, several weeks or even an indeterminate period (as when we were stranded out of town by hurricane)
Debra is an absolutely wonderful, knowledgeable, reliable, trustworthy person. Debra has been coming over for a few years now and my 2 Labs absolutely love her. We have had her stay with them for overnights too. They get excited when they hear her car coming down the street. I can't say enough good things!!
I just want to take the time out to really thank you for everything you did taking care of Finster, Mini, Danny and Blue the fish.
You not only took wonderful care of our furry, feather, and finned family but you watched our house, watered the plants, took in our mail and really gave us the ability to truly relax knowing you were here.
Finster can be really difficult and I am so happy that you were here. I think she was a little disappointed to see me back knowing she wouldn't see you that night.
You gave the dogs much needed exercise and took such wonderful care of them I know they too look forward to seeing you again.
I would highly recommend furry people pet sitting to anyone who needs dog walking or pet sitting.
Debra, you're the best and we appreciate your dedication and the love you shower on our pets in our absence.
