About Walkies

Hi!  I’m Maureen Sullivan, lifelong pet lover and native Chicagoan. I’ve been sitting for years, I love it dearly and I’ve found that this is a great way to play with OPP (other people’s pets). 

I live on the near South Side of Chicago and have decided to focus my business within a 5 mile radius of my home.  This allows me to be close enough to any client’s home to handle special care and trips to the vet if needed.

I grew up in Chicago with dogs, hamsters, fish, turtles, birds and continued to choose to live with pet cats and a ferret in my adult life.  I currently share our home with 3 rescued kitties ages 12, 10 and 3.

We (myself and my caretakers) have taken care of animals with diabetes, dental woes, renal failure, old age issues, a variety of cancers, digestive issues, broken limbs, feral/partially feral, pregnancy needs and other unusual quirks.  We find that animals are like people and no two are the same.  So far, we haven’t met an animal that we didn’t like and with the exception of  feral cats the response has been mutual.

We really love what we do! Please allow us to offer your pets the attention and TLC that we offer our own.

Walkies is bonded and insured (see services page for details).  We’re dedicated and dependable.  We leave happy pets and owners in our wake, and we don’t bite off more than we can chew. We’re dedicated to this service and serious about trust – in both directions.
