Hillary in Denver with her dog and cat

Meet Hillary, OUG! Denver’s Longest-Serving Expert Veteran Pet Sitter!

I’m in charge of: Being your pet’s best friend who they think you know nothing about! I am the giver of all things wonderful. Walks, treats, love…Oh my!

My furry family:

  • Kiwi, my pug. She is my heart. And best friend. She is the cutest, sweetest pug who ever pugged. And the ruler of the cats.
  • Weezer is the best cat ever. No, seriously, everyone says so. Just don’t leave your eyeglasses out! ::chomp::
  • Stacia is a black and white beauty who has an affinity for stinky shoes, licking wet hair, and meowing “now!” when it’s dinner time.
  • Nunu is a delicate beast of a cat who will talk your ear off if you let her.
  • Bug is a feral cat with a heart of gold. He is the funniest little guy, if he lets you see that side of him.
  • My super power: It’s a tie between being invisible or reading minds! Imagine the possibilities!

Best thing ever: Coconut anything!

Hidden Talent: Parallel parking. Composing and singing songs for my pets and yours! Planning and hosting themed parties.

Life Philosophy: You get what you give. Also: if it feels good, do it twice!

Colorado pet sitter Mark

Meet Colorado Pet Sitting Superstar, Mark!

I’m in charge of: Not only do I give your pup a chance to poop while you’re away, I provide stimulation! By reinforcing pet parent training and changing up our walk routes often, your pup gets exercise for the body and mind…and nose!

My furry family: No pets right now. Sad face. I am new to Colorado and I wanted to be sure I have the schedule, environment, and a proper home for a pet to thrive in! I’ve got my eye on a Shiba Inu rescue for when the time is right!

My superpower would be: Ooooo…my favorite icebreaker question. I think I would choose invisibility to get to the bottom of Area 51 and expose the formula for Coca Cola…I’d also see a lot of free movies and concerts! If I could have two super powers, I would combine my invisibility with time travel to go back in time and watch the great artistic masters paint.

Best thing ever: Good food, live music, and the love of my wife. All three of those things wrapped together in varying daily quantities make me a generally pretty happy fellow.

Hidden Talent: The ability to flawlessly toss a poop bag into an open distant dumpster. Also, people tell me stuff. All the time. It’s weird.

Life Philosophy: Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Thanks for using Out-U-Go! and helping me live out my philosophy every day!!

Denver Boulder Maxfund-No-Kill-Shelter-Donations

Denver & Boulder’s Hands for Paws Donation Drive To Benefit Maxfund No-Kill Shelter!

The Out-U-Go! Hands for Paws donation drive benefiting the Maxfund No-Kill Shelter in Denver was a huge success this year! Once again, our awesome pet parents donated a ton of supplies that the Maxfund really needed.

Last month, we dropped off a truckload of the supplies our pet sitters picked up from your homes (leashes, dog beds, food & treats, paper towels, cleaning supplies, and more) to the Maxfund. They were so grateful to receive your gifts!

THANK U to everyone who helped make it happen!
