I had the good fortune to come across Julie’s services (Artemis Animals) and I couldn’t be happier. When she came to meet my furry babies for the first time I knew she was THE one when I saw how they were immediately enamored by her. I am a big believer that one should be weary of anyone your pet doesn’t care for.
Being able to keep my babies in their own environment is priceless. I no longer have to board them, pay boarder extra for additional “play” time or worry about them catching something from another animal. At home they have each other to play with and they look forward to Julie coming in to walk and play with them.
Julie has been so accommodating with our crazy schedules as well. Rest assured that if Julie is caring for your furry family member that they will be in good hands! I make sure to always tell everyone I come across about Julie’s great company.

I am writing this letter to highly recommend Julie Sacco, proprietor/owner of Artemis Animals.
We reached out to Julie 6 months ago to help in the care of our 13 year old Golden Retriever, Sophie. Sophie was diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor, and we wanted to provide her with a comfortable and loving environment during times when we were away. Having the ability to leave Sophie in our home and know she was being well cared for was the right answer for us.
Julie immediately connected with Sophie…and we knew Sophie had made a new friend in Julie.
Julie visited 3 times a day during 3 periods that we were away…the longest being for 11 days. Julie went out of her way to look after Sophie’s every need, and we were thrilled with the care Sophie received.
We’re convinced that Sophie was able to carry-on for as long as she did in great part because of the care Julie provided. Sophie passed away a week ago knowing that she was loved.
If you are looking for a loving, professional care giver for your pet, we would highly recommend Julie.

I am pleased to share my experience and recommend Julie Sacco of Artemis Animals. We have been using Julie’s pet sitting services for at least two years to care for our two cats and two rabbits on the 3-5 weekly trips we take each year. She is highly responsive to email, provides excellent care to our pets and handles every situation with professional poise.
Earlier this year, our international flight was canceled. We had no cell service and had to frantically email Julie in the middle of the night asking her if she could stop by an additional day to ensure our pets had water and food. She didn’t hesitate. The next morning we had an email in our inbox assuring us that she was able to made the changes to her schedule to accommodate stopping by an extra day to care for our pets.
Entrusting someone to care for you pet when they are healthy is hard but we almost canceled our trip when our rabbit received a head injury that led to partial paralysis and almost constant attention through daily visits. We emailed Julie and explained the situation. She quickly responded that she would care for our sick rabbit. She even took the extra effort to come over before our trip and walk through the details of the extra cleaning requirements to keep our rabbit healthy while we were away. She was able to give us peace of mind in both these circumstances and it was priceless!
Artemis Animals is fully insured and bonded. Julie is certified as a professional pet sitter through two nationally recognized organizations – Pet Sitters International and the Association of Professional Pet Sitters. I was most impressed with her certification of in Dog and Cat First Aid.
I highly recommend Julie Sacco and Artemis Animals to you as a caregiver for your pets. She has been a great gift to our pets and us! Sincerely,
- Wendy Hosier, Hopatcong, New Jersey
I adopted my dog, Anna, from a rescue in Georgia, over a year ago. The first week I had her we went to a Dog Fair in a park and there we met Julie. Julie has been our only dog walker and sitter since that time. As our dog walker, not only is Julie loving and caring with Anna, but equally important Julie is reliable and impeccably available. We have had a regular walking schedule in the past and every time I need an unscheduled visit for Anna, Julie is always available no matter how last minute, for someone like myself who works full time and commutes quite farm knowing that Julie will be there for Anna is so important especially when you love your dog! Julie makes sure Anna has fresh water when she leaves and that Anna is given her special treats. It makes work a lot easier knowing that Anna will enjoy her walk with Julie.
As our dog sitter, having Julie allows you to fully enjoy your vacation without feeling worried or concerned about your dog while you are away. She provides a radio for comfort noise if you don’t have one, monitors the temp in your home so your dog is comfortable and will visit as often as you would like. I know Anna is getting fresh water, the correct food, her special treats, love and affection and of course her special walks when Julie is taking care of her. It’s a good feeling to know that while you are enjoying your vacation, your pet is enjoying time spent with Julie.

Our family was in the process of life changing events and included in those changes, we realized that we needed someone that we could trust with our pets and our home. We were referred to Julie Sacco d/b/a Artemis Animals when we were in the market for a dog sitter. We were looking for someone local, trustworthy, honest and dependable. I have always been apprehensive having anyone handle my dogs, especially tiny ones. Our family is more than satisfied with Julie’s services and we would recommend her to anyone. Not only do we like her and are completely satisfied, our dogs LOVE her. We were actually surprised about the Chihuahua because he is pretty nasty to everyone…but he instantly liked her.
We would recommend Artemis Animals to anyone who is looking for quality, dependable, budget friendly dog sitting. Julie Sacco is also a certified and trained professional.

We have two dogs and a cat that are carefully looked after by Artemis Animals when we are away. Julie has looked after our an aging pet and a new puppy that both needed extra care. She has provided all our pets with exercise and attention several times a day making our out of town absence a non-issue for them.
Artemis Animals goes beyond the call. Julie looks after our home, and gives us peace of mind that everything is okay when we go out of town. It is so nice return to come home after a trip and know that your pets are home, happy and haven’t been boarded and exposed to kennel germs.
We have found a personal and reliable pet and house sitting service for our family. Thank you Artemis Animals!!

Julie has been our neighbor for 20 years. Over the years we have always had at least one dog. Whenever we had to leave our dog at home, we knew Julie would care for it as if it were her own. Most importantly, Julie loves animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. She gives them a lot of personal attention, playing with and exercising them, in addition to providing food and water. She is extremely reliable and will attend to the pet as scheduled without exception. We have complete confidence in her judgment and reliability as she has had to administered medication to our older dog. I have even called on Julie if I had to work later than expected and she has come over to let the dog out.
In addition, Julie has brought in our mail and papers and kept a watch on the house while we are away. She is one of the most honest and dependable people I have ever met.
Whether we are on vacation or if I needed a day visit, I can always count on Julie. Feel free to call us if you would like more details.

It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Julie Sacco of Artemis Animals.
We hired Julie in March 2012 to care for our dog and two cats. I have found Julie to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. She has shown great flexibility and has been able to accommodate our last minute out of town trips on very short notice. Julie often leaves notes to update us on our pets’ needs, as well as weekly treats for them. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned for their well-being.
I recommend anyone that is looking for a pet sitting/dog walking service to rely on Julie for these services. I am fully satisfied and confident that my pets are in the best hands.

Julie Sacco is the pet sitter for my 2 precious “girls”. Bella and Jade are very loved and important family members. Bella is a very strong but loving girl. And Jade is an older dog with special needs who is a diabetic. When I need to be away from my girls I feel secure that they are in good hands. Julie is reliable, trustworthy, and most of all loving with my dogs. She has helped me out plenty of times even if it was a last minute notice. I am very careful of whom I let in my house and whom I trust with my dogs. I trust Julie and highly recommend her.

It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Julie Sacco of Artemis Animals Pet Sitting and dog walking.
I hired Julie about a year ago to care for my Italian Greyhound named Frank and my two cats Lilly and Ozzy. I had just moved to this area from New York City and was in need of someone to check on my crew during the day. I was extremely worried about going to work and leaving them alone in the house for the whole day and did a lot of research on pet sitters in order to ensure he had the best care possible while I was gone.
When I first met Julie, I liked her right away because she had a calm demeanor and got right down to Franks level to greet him. He seemed very comfortable with her. She also listened to my concerns and was willing to work with me to meet all of Franks needs as he was an older dog and was going through some health issues at the time.
In the year that she has worked for me, I have found her to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. She is also very accommodating with changes in schedule and always returned my phone calls promptly. I have complete trust in her and know that when I’m away for the day at work, or away on vacation that my pets are not just simply cared for, but loved and played with. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. I would highly recommend her as a pet sitter.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Julie Sacco who has been walking my dogs, Ritter and Roxie, since July 11, 2011.
I knew from the beginning that my very energetic dogs were in good hands with Julie. She is reliable, punctual, observant, patient and always loving. My dogs definitely enjoy their walks with Julie; when I get home from work they are happy and well-exercised. Julie also loves my dogs just as much as I do, which is very important to me. I can trust that they are in good hands when I am away, and I never have to worry about their well-being. Julie has the keys to my house, and she is completely honest and very responsible.
I highly recommend Julie to you for any of your pet needs. If there is any question regarding her reference, please feel free to contact me at any time.
