Welcome to
Helping Hands Animal Sitting

Small & Large Animal Sitting
Insured, bonded, first aid certified.

Offering a safe, comfortable alternative to boarding


We don't believe in charging per animal, especially since we are tailored to meet the needs of homes with numerous animals.  Whether you have 5 dogs, or you have a dozen goats, couple horses, a dog and 2 cats...we will evaluate the needs of your home and your location to determine a fair and more affordable, personalized quote. Then based on the dates of your travel, we'll match you with an available sitter with the right skill set to care for everyone you need.

We are Amanda & Evan Strickland. We are passionate about animals and have quite a few rescues that have found their furever home with us; everything from horses, donkeys, turkeys, guineas, hens and more! In addition to our large outdoor animals, we have 3 great danes and a cat. We believe in taking time to earn an animal's trust especially when they need  patience, extra time & attention.


We discovered the growing need for reliable animal care near our home, out east of Aurora along the I-70 corridor. From our neighbors and friends in our community we heard over and over how hard it is to travel. We, ourselves experienced this challenge for years because there weren't pet sitters comfortable with homes that have more than cats or dogs. Many of these families have a large property and have had to find and pay for multiple services (boarding or a sitter for indoor pets, in addition to a ranch hand or neighbor who could handle caring for their large animals). Turns our there's a huge need for care among families with hobby farms! We provide house sitting for all kinds of small, large and exotic animals. We sit for a lot of senior animals and even newborns like puppies, bottle fed calves, goats, baby chickens, and so many more!


We decided not to limit our coverage area as families from across the state have sought us out to house sit for them. We have pursued like-minded sitters to add to our team and  have continued to grow to meet that need for pet and barn sitters across Colorado. We offer house sitting for homes all over; from the high Rockies to the low plains and from the Wyoming border to Pueblo.

We can offer overnight stays for your next trip so you can have the peace of mind that your animals have constant care while you're away. We love to keep you updated as much as you want with how they're doing so your time away can be carefree.
