Granite State Pet Sitting is committed to the well-being and comfort of your pets, but owner and founder Holly Mokrzecki’s devotion to animals extends well beyond her pet care business.
After reading about the heartbreak and anxiety that can plague dog owners when their beloved pet is missing, Ms. Mokrzecki founded Granite State Dog Recovery, an all-volunteer non-profit company devoted to reuniting lost pets with their owners.
Ms. Mokrzecki’s lifelong devotion to pets and her deep understanding of her behavior provide her with a unique perspective and intuitive understanding of pets when they become lost and must learn to survive in the wild. That understanding has helped her successfully reunite many owners and pets, even after long periods of absence.
Beyond her direct involvement in pet-owner reunions, Ms. Mokrzecki and her volunteer team provide outreach to storm-struck areas where animals may have been inadvertently separated from their families, providing manpower, guidance and even much-needed food and supplies.

Dogs are pack animals by nature, and that means they need regular contact and interaction with other members of their human “pack” to be happy and thrive. When you’re away, whether for business or pleasure, our experienced pet sitters can fill in for you, providing your dog with the regular care and contact they crave.
Cats are smart, loving animals, and even though they may seem aloof or independent to the untrained eye, as any cat owner knows, cats are full of unique personality traits including a strong preference for regular routines. When you need to be away from home for an extended period, whether for professional or personal reasons, putting your cat in a kennel can cause it to become stressed and may even cause illness.
Small Animal Sitting
Who knew so much love and sweetness could fit in such a tiny, furry package? If you own a pet like a rabbit, sugar glider, hamster, guinea pig or other small animal, you know how loveable and special these pets can be – and so do we. When you need to leave your home, whether for a long business trip or vacation or just a quick “getaway” weekend, we can provide all the care your small pet needs.
Just like your furry pets, feathered loved ones develop strong attachments to the humans who care for them. Their happiness, health and well-being are based on a strong sense of routine and habit, and disrupting that routine can cause stress that in turn can cause molting, eating disorders and health issues. In flocks, disruptions in regular routines can also cause negative behaviors like pecking and can cause egg production to fluctuate or even cease.
I only walk one household at a time. We do absolutely no pack walking. This allows us to give your dog(s) the most personalized attention possible. They will never get lost in the shuffle and you will not have to worry about a disagreement among other dogs.
