Welcome to The National Capital Area Professional Pet Sitters Network, formerly The Northern Virginia Professional Pet Sitters Network. Founded in 1998, the Network is an all-volunteer, membership-based non-profit, with a mission to promote professional pet sitting in the DC Metro area, including Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia and Maryland. We maintain a membership base of independently owned and operated area pet care businesses whose owners are committed to excellence in professional pet sitting, community outreach and involvement.
