The competition for 2000 Pet Sitter of the Year set records across the board. The 112 nominees from 28 states and Canada were sent in by a whopping 500+ nominators! Leading states in the number of nominees were Florida (12). New Jersey (11). Pennsylvania (9) and Virginia (7). The quality of this year’s nominations was impressive and the judges’ decision making process was a tough one. Congratulations to all of the nominees, whose professionalism, dedication and hard work are greatly appreciated by the clients who nominated them.
