A Pet's Best Friend

Providing professional and personalized pet sitting since 1995


A Pet's Best Friend™ pet sitting service was started in Broomfield, Colorado in 1995 by Melissa Kauffman, a pet owner and animal lover. We provide loving pet care for all domestic house pets in areas of Broomfield, Westminster, Northglenn, and Thornton, Colorado.  To view our service area, visit the FAQ page.


A Pet's Best Friend pet sitting is a wonderful alternative to kennels. Our clients are able to enjoy their time away knowing that their pets are in excellent care. Your pets will be comfy and cozy in their own environment they are used to, relieving them of any stress that may be caused by staying elsewhere. They will get individual love and attention, providing them with the routine that will be reviewed with you at a free initial consultation at your home with Melissa.

Not only do we provide terrific pet sitting, but house sitting will be provided as well. We are happy to take care of               watering plants, bringing in mail, setting out trash cans, and varying lights or window blinds, radio, or TV. We are an insured and bonded service and proud members of Pet Sitters International, (www.petsit.com). Each of the pet sitters from our team have also completed a criminal background check. We offer a free meet and greet with your assigned pet sitter, and provide excellent references, including recommendations from local veterinarians from the Broomfield area. See our great reviews on Yelp!


"Pets are more than just animals to us. They are family members and friends that love us unconditionally. That's why A Pet's Best Friend™ pet sitting has dedicated almost 25 years to ensuring pets' comfort and well-being while providing them with love and companionship. It is greatly rewarding and we absolutely love what we do!" 


Melissa also participates in fundraising for Denver Dumb Friends League and contributes to Maxfund No-Kill Animal Shelter, Best Friends Animal Society, The Humane Society of the United States, and ASPCA.

Your key/lock box may be attached to a mutually agreed upon location. Your key will never leave your property and allows another sitter from our team access to your home if your assigned sitter is not able to visit. We may use a garage code for home access, but a lock box is still needed as a back up due to possible garage door failure. If you have a lock box of your own or a front door keypad, this purchase is not necessary.

We are more than happy to confirm if a sitter is available to visit your area. We are more able to make an exception to go out of the area for overnight stays.
