If you are an insured professional pet sitter in the Indianapolis or surrounding
area, we invite you to join the Indy Area Pet Sitters Network.
IAPSN is a professional network consisting of individually owned pet care companies that serve the Indianapolis and surrounding area pets and their people. We joined together (informally) in 2009 to create new friendships, to network, to educate and support one another, and to have fun!
Members communicate through a private Google Groups Forum (email messages). You will be invited to join The Forum after your membership is accepted.
We meet most months on the 2nd Monday or Tuesday of the month. Please see our tentative meeting schedule on the Members Page. We are open to having meetings in other locations when a member volunteers to set it up. We encourage you to attend as many meetings as you can so we can get to know you better.
It is common for us to refer potential clients to each other, and the better we know you the more referrals you are likely to receive. We also try to provide back up for each other when possible.
Every year so far, IAPSN has celebrated with an annual Christmas/Holiday gathering. We have enjoyed this fun event! We occasionally share funny stories on the Google Groups Forum as well.
How to Join
Potential members may attend one meeting as a guest. Please RSVP by sending us a message through the Contact Us page before your first meeting so that we can advise you of any changes to our schedule. If you do not receive a reply, please call one of these three members Cathy Clark 317-260-1082, Mary Louden 317-259-7419 or Amy McDonald 317-441-8546 to confirm. Please print the Membership Application found at the bottom of this page and bring your completed application to the meeting to turn in if you decide you would like to join our group. We will not accept your application until you attend a meeting. Annual dues currently are $24 per year for new members and $12 for renewing members.
Members must pay for and pass a criminal background check on themselves and on each of their employees and independent contractors, and must carry business liability insurance at all times. You will be asked to provide copies of your insurance and proof of background check with your application. Every member must attend at least one meeting per year. We encourage you to attend as many as you can so we can get to know you better and feel comfortable referring potential clients to you.

IAPSN supports local shelters and rescue groups in the efforts with caring for and finding responsible homes for pets.
