Hi, I’m Sara McDonald, owner of PetSitting Indianapolis.

Being a pet parent is a joy, but when pet parenthood mixes with the demands of everyday life, stress can take over!

My team and I are on a mission to relieve some of that stress and put the joy back into your relationship with your pet.

A Bit About Me…

I’m more than a hard-working animal lover; I have 6+ years of experience in small animal and emergency veterinary hospitals and 10 years as a pet sitting.

My whole team is certified in Pet First Aid and CPR, and we LOVE to take continuing education classes to sharpen our skills as pet professionals!


Loving has been my lifetime calling.

I was blessed to grow up as a “barn rat.” I worked as a trainer, gave lessons, and cleaned stalls in exchange for free stall rental for my horses.

As a teen, I volunteered at the Indy Humane Society and worked behind the scenes with the animals at the Indianapolis Zoo.
I went to University of Tennessee to study large animal medicine. Then, my goals changed, and I moved to Oregon with my 4-legged soulmate, a lab mix named Lira, to get my degree in Environmental Health Sciences.

While in Oregon, I worked as a veterinary assistant at a small animal hospital and helped at a local horse farm that also had chickens, sheep and alpacas.

Once I returned to Indianapolis, I worked at an emergency and specialty animal hospital at the front desk and as a veterinary assistant.

When the opportunity arose to start my own pet sitting and dog walking business, I jumped at it, and I haven’t looked back!

At the end of the day, I love this work because I get to help people and their pets find more joy in their lives.

I help your pets have adventurous, happy, and healthy lives, while you enjoy yours!

You can rest assured that everything is fine at home, so you have nothing to do but enjoy your pets’ company when you get back home.

After all, your company is the one thing your pet loves the most!

When I’m not working, you can find me at home with my husband, two step sons, and four-legged kids. Right now we just have dogs, but throughout my life I’ve had cats, guinea pigs, a hedgehog, and several large aquariums.

The Animals Who Have Blessed My Life

F.F. Rosewood (Taffy) was my first love and I Be Jammin’ (PJ) was the first to teach me about heartbreak. 

Lira will always be my 4-legged soulmate!  

Our favorite hound dog Fatman secretly loved our coolest cat Rico Suave

I picked up Penny from the middle of the road and she tragically died during her spay.  She was only in our lives for a short time, but touched our hearts forever.
