Avoid Amanda's Pet Sitting! – Please by all means do not use Amanda Turner to look after your pets. We made that mistake after finding her on the Arizona Professional Pet Sitters Association website which has turned out to be one of the worst decisions of our lives.
She is no longer listed with APPSA, as we've contacted them and found out that they have had multiple complaints on her - they removed her immediately. She also claims on her website to be a member of Pet Sitters International, but if you phone them you'll find out that they have also had multiple complaints on her and removed her years ago. They have tried to contact her to get her to remove the reference, but she has not done so, hoping to hide under their false endorsement.
We had two pets that perished under her supposed care and her story just does not add up. It was only after the fact that we learned from RipOffReport-dot-com that she has a history of complaints of animal negligence and contract fraud:
Similar to these reports, we believe that she locked two of our dogs outside and they were viciously attacked by a bobcat while she was supposedly sleeping in the room with the arcadia door to the backyard. We are certain that Amanda was not here and urge that you avoid her at all costs.
Please do your due diligence in running a full background check on any sitters that you trust with your furry babies. We certainly wish we had.
You should include a Maricopa County Criminal Court record search, as well:
Again, we are so sorry we didn't and can only hope that we can get the word out to where you will take all precautions.
Nothing can bring our boys back, but we only hope at this point that we can prevent her from hurting anybody else.
