Welcome to Critter Care!


Critter Care is proud to serve Long Beach, Lakewood, and surrounding areas as your premiere pet sitter and dog walker. Welcome to our website!

The mission and operating business principle of Critter Care is to provide "Loving Pet Care When You're Not There"™…and that’s what we do! In order to accomplish this, we recognize and acknowledge that your pets are valuable family members who must be given the special attention they deserve to ensure they are properly cared for. We understand that your pets give you many hours of joy, amusement, and companionship, and therefore we strive passionately to keep them active and happy. When your pet remains in its own environment, separation stress is reduced creating a calmer pet that is less destructive.

Why hire a professional pet sitter?

A born and raised Long Beach resident, Rich Anderson of Critter Care has spent his entire life sharing himself with pets of all kinds: dogs, cats, domestic and exotic birds, tropical fish…and the host of small animals that young boys bring home to their parents' amazement!

After years in the business world providing first-class (and nationally recognized) customer service, Rich established Critter Care with the goal of providing his clients (those on 2 and 4 legs as well as those with fins, gills, feathers, beaks, and scales) the same care he provided his business clients. Rich’s success is grounded in the basic principle that people are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity in the same manner he would like to be treated.

As a member of Pet Sitters International, Critter Care is pleased to provide our clients with up-to-date information concerning the latest findings and solutions to many common animal care and behavioral issues.

Critter Care understands that caring for your pets and entering your home is a privilege that is not taken lightly. We strive to earn your trust and provide you, your home, and your pets superior care and attention while you’re away.
