About Critter Capers

Opened in November, 2009 and located in Stafford, Virginia, just north of the Fredericksburg City line, Critter Capers Pet Sitting provides full service, in-home pet sitting, dog walking, pet transportation, and basic grooming services allowing you to travel or go to work without the worry of where to leave your pets, or if there will be a mess to clean up when you get home.

Critter Capers Pet Sitting allows you to leave your pets where they are most comfortable – in their own home! As a member of the Pet Sitters International, Professional United Pet Sitters, Association of Pet Sitting Excellence, and the Pet Professionals Guild, Critter Capers Pet Sitting excels at providing professional pet care while you are away or at work. Your pets are treated like my own and are cared for in a way that helps to strengthen and maintain the human-animal bond that you have with them.

Meet Chris – Pet Sitter and Owner

Chris Rinker - Caper Critters Pet Sitting

My goal is to provide the best possible care for your pets in a professional yet caring way, always striving to go above and beyond your expectations. Each pet left in my care has an individualized care plan structured to meet their needs as well as the needs of their owners – no details are too small or left out.

Working with animals since 1997, I truly love what I do. Besides spending a great deal of time caring for other families’ pets, my family has several pets of it’s own (cats, dogs, and chickens).

I love every opportunity that I have to help others with their pets. I will care for any species and breed of pet (dogs, cats, birds, horses, exotics, “pocket pets” (i.e. hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc) and fish). When they are left in my care, they are treated as though they are a member of MY OWN animal family; loved on, fed and played with with great care and affection.

The Process is Easy…

In-Home Consultation
This is an opportunity for us to meet, develop the “pet care plan” and discuss your and your pet’s needs.
Exceptional Pet Care
While keeping your pet’s routines as normal as possible, I will treat your pets as if they were my own while you are away.
Shortly after you return home, I will follow up with you to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with the care provided.
