Capital Critter Sitters
Two capital cities, one great pet-sitting service!
Jen Jacobs left her job in May 2013 as a contractor at the Government Accountability Office to take over the Washington, D.C., branch of Capital Critter Sitters with Kristine Davis. Jen handles the bulk of the midday and evening walks as well as cat care duties. After growing up in Michigan and graduating from Ferris State University, she eventually found her way to Washington. After 10 years and two different office jobs, she jumped at the chance to start this new outdoor career and has enjoyed every step. In addition to walking, she is a coach at Old City CrossFit and enjoys running ultramarathons and other crazy outdoor adventures, then recovering with a nice hard cider.

Kristine and Cooper, a wee pup
As pet owners themselves, Jen and Kristine have high standards for pet care and understand your expectations. As experienced working professionals, they also know the importance of maintaining the solid reputation Capitol Critter Sitters has established on Capitol Hill. As residents of the Lincoln Park neighborhood since 2009, Jen and Kristine have enjoyed exploring and helping their dog Cooper, a yellow lab-golden retriever mix, make new friends. Cooper is a rescue from HART in Northern Virginia. Both women grew up with pets and have a deep appreciation for how much joy they can provide. They have experience caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, birds, and even an iguana, and they love being outdoors walking, running, hiking, and bicycling.
Kristine Davis, who provides evening, weekend, overnight and holiday support, also works for a non-profit trade association in Washington. She spent the majority of her life growing up in New Hampshire. However, being an Air Force brat she has lived in multiple places. She loves living in Washington since moving here in 2004.
