Founded on a deep-rooted love for animals, VIP Pet Services has long been celebrated for its exceptional pet care services in the greater Austin and Dallas metro areas. Beyond the daily joys of pet sitting and dog walking, the company has expanded its vision to address the broader challenges pets and their owners face in the community. This vision gave birth to Pet Sitters Care, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has grown to encompass vital projects like the new Pet Food Pantry and the innovative Rescue Markets culinary initiative.

Pet Sitters Care is more than just an extension of VIP Pet Services; it’s a manifestation of the company’s core belief in giving back and making a tangible difference in the lives of those they serve. Each project under Pet Sitters Care’s umbrella is designed to ensure that no pet goes hungry and that the bonds between pets and their families remain unbroken, even in the face of economic hardships.


In Dallas, Pet Sitters Care has established the Pet Food Pantry.  It stands as a vital resource for families facing financial difficulties, ensuring their pets are well-fed and cared for. Sponsored by VIP Pet Services, this pantry is a testament to the company’s mission of supporting the well-being of pets and strengthening the bond between pets and their owners. By providing essential food and supplies, the pantry plays a critical role in the community, offering a lifeline to those in need.

The impact of the Pet Food Pantry extends far beyond the immediate nutritional benefits for pets. It represents a circle of care and support that embodies the spirit of community and the importance of keeping families together. In times of need, the pantry serves as a reminder that compassion and action can significantly alleviate the challenges faced by pet owners in Dallas.


Rescue Markets Dallas distributes food to homeless people and petsAnother innovative arm of Pet Sitters Care’s initiatives is Rescue Markets, a culinary venture led by Cordon Bleu-trained Chef Gary Irvin. This initiative harnesses the power of food and community to support animal welfare through pop-up fundraising events and private catering. The proceeds from these culinary adventures directly benefit animal welfare efforts, showcasing the creative ways in which VIP Pet Services and Pet Sitters Care are working to make a difference. 

Rescue Markets is more than just a fundraising effort; it’s a celebration of community, cuisine, and the shared goal of improving the lives of pets and their owners in Dallas. Through every dish prepared and every event hosted, Rescue Markets brings people together for the love of animals, raising awareness and funds for a cause close to the heart of VIP Pet Services and its supporters.


The story of VIP Pet Services and Pet Sitters Care is a powerful narrative of compassion, commitment, and the impact of collective effort. Through initiatives like the Pet Food Pantry and Rescue Markets, VIP Pet Services is not just providing services but fostering a community united in the love for animals and the desire to make a positive difference.

For those inspired to join this mission, whether through support, donations, or volunteering, VIP Pet Services and Pet Sitters Care welcome all who share their passion for animal welfare. By coming together, we can achieve remarkable things for the pets and people who enrich our lives.
