Melissa Nardone - Safe At Home Pet Sitters

Melissa Nardone, Owner

Before founding Safe at Home Pet Sitters, Melissa worked in various positions in the fashion industry. She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology with degrees in buying and merchandising. After several years in corporate America Melissa felt unfulfilled and wanted to make a change. With the support of her husband Robert, Melissa decided to take a chance and in September of 2003 Melissa founded Safe at Home Pet Sitters. It was the best decision she ever made!

Melissa has been an avid animal lover her entire life and all of her pets are members of the family. She honestly believes that a house is not a home without a pet. As a child Melissa spent many hours at the golf course with her father. He bought her a small set of clubs and told her if she got a hole in one, she could have her very own dog. She never got a hole in one but was given her own dog!

Tank & Harlequin, Office Assistants

Tank and Harlequin joined our family in August of 2016 and have been an invaluable asset to Safe at Home Pet Sitters. They like to help in the office between naps and chewing their favorite bones. Their preferred methods of payment include Lowcountry Dog Treats and trips to Folly Beach. Being siblings, they share many hobbies including going swimming at Wag-n-Splash, walking on the beach, and going to the “magic window”.

Safe at Home Pet Sitters offers daily dog walking services for our clients who work outside the home and from home. Daily dog walking is ideal for all dogs and puppies. It gives your furry friend an opportunity to get a little exercise, some fresh air, a potty break, play time, and lots of attention. In addition, Safe at Home Pet Sitters has clients who use our dog walking service on an “as needed” basis. This is ideal for clients who have rotating schedules or busy lives.

Safe at Home Pet Sitters also offers pet sitting services for clients who are away for a night, a weekend, or an extended vacation. Whether it’s personal or business travel we will customize your visits to best suit your pets needs. At Safe at Home Pet Sitters no pet is too big or small and we treat each and every one of our client’s pets and homes as if they were our own. We have experience pet sitting for a variety of pets including, dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbits, hamsters, exotic pets, and pocket pets. We also have vast experience with parrots and large birds.
