About Susan
Founder, Sit. Stay. Grow., LLC

An animal lover of all kinds—they have been a part of my family my whole life. Caring for them is a privilege and a passion. My previous pets include a horse, a bird, rabbits, mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, lizards, turtles, fish, and snakes. Currently, I’m the proud mama of a cat with a major attitude, Linus. An avid gardener, I have earned the title, “Flower Lady”, in the neighborhood. I practice organic principles as much as possible while caring for pets and plants.

We have a soft-spot for senior pets, special needs pets, unusual pets, and, of course, puppies and kittens. We are dedicated to continuing education and skill as professional pet sitters and sharing our knowledge to improve the lives of animals.

Sit. Stay. Grow. has donated to local ‘no kill’ shelters.

Our company is female-owned and operated.

We are a local small business headquartered in Columbus, OH.
