About Us

 Hello. My name is Susan Vann. My husband and I have lived happily in Carol Stream for almost 25 years and raised two children who are now adults. We have a rescued Akita, Bella, and a rescued kitty, Dolly, with whom we now share our home. While You Were Out Pet Sitting, Inc. is a life long dream of mine. It evolved from a part time job to help pay for additional expenses to a full time business. The decision to leave a job that I loved and had been at for 23 years was not easy, but I have not looked back once. 

After deciding to start this business, I wanted to put the time and effort into forming a legitimate company.  I joined organizations that would continuously educate me in all things pet, business and safety. I went the extra mile and became certified as a professional pet sitter through Pet Sitters International, which wasn't nearly as easy as I expected it to be. I am insured, bonded and certified, and will be there when you need me.

If you have a senior or special needs pet, I am experienced in giving medications and other prescribed care as needed.  We help our diabetic pet clients by administering insulin per their schedule.  I also have experience administering subcutaneous fluids and can meet the needs of any pets that may be suffering from incontinence. 

Although While You Were Out Pet Sitting, Inc.'s office is based in my home in Carol Stream, IL, I am always on the go.  Most of the time, I am at my customers' homes caring for their pets or walking their dogs. Other times, I am meeting new customers and their pets to see if we can meet their needs.

Due to requests from surrounding areas and my inability to be two places at once (wouldn't that be nice?), I have searched high and low for just the right people to train so I can fulfill pet needs in a larger surrounding area. If you are wondering if we service your area, please do not hesitate to call us at 630-462-7561. I love to speak with people who love their pets as much as I do. If we can't answer the phone, please leave a message.  We will return your call as soon as possible.
