Joette White | President, Owner

Park Cities Pet Sitter opened almost 30 years ago, in 1992. In 1996, Joette White began working for the company as a pet sitter, and then in 2000, she purchased the company from the original owner.  Naturally driven to provide superior customer service, Joette focused on making Park Cities Pet Sitter the best pet care company in the Metroplex. Part of those efforts include a strong servant leadership philosophy, which essentially means taking great care of her employees and helping them be successful in their jobs.  This philosophy has been as important to the company’s long term success as taking care of clients and their pets.


Joette has served on the Board of The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, helping to educate others in the industry about best practices.  Her company has won a multitude of local awards including Angie’s List Super Service Award for 5 consecutive years, “Best of Dallas” by D Magazine, and “Best of’s” from WFAA Channel 8, Dallas Voice, and The Dallas Observer.  Park Cities Pet Sitter was also awarded the prestigious NAPPS’ 2017 Business of the Year–this is a national award given to a pet sitting company that demonstrates outstanding business practices and vision in maintaining and growing their business.

Currently Joette serves as the Vice President of the Zoo Crew Booster Club at JL Long Middle School.  Zoo Crew helps middle school youth develop their leadership skills, while furthering their science education by working with a variety of animals living on the school campus.

Joette is married and is a mother to two young boys.  Animals have always been a huge part of her life. In addition to “herding” the three Park Cities Pet Sitter office cats (Carl, Kruzer and Henry), Joette also has a sweet rescue dog named Phyllis and a short-haired rabbit named Toofus at her home.   She strongly believes in giving back to her church and community, and does so by working with local shelters, as well as through education, training, and fund raising activities.


  • To be the client’s trusted resource for their pet’s entire life.
  • To provide a service experience that people rave about.
  • To be thoughtful to the people around us and think how we can impact them in a positive way.

Who We Are

Park Cities Pet Sitter is locally owned and operated. 
We are proud to have an experienced team, working together to exceed your service expectations on a daily basis.  Teamwork is likely to achieve greater results than individuals working on their own.  A single pet sitter may not have availability when you really need them.  A single pet sitter may not have a back up person to step in if something happens to them like a fall or car accident.  A single pet sitter may not be prepared to handle the emergencies that life can throw our way on the job.

With Park Cities Pet Sitter’s team in your corner, an experienced, locally-based manager is on call 365 days a year. Every PCPSI sitter knows that with one phone call, they can get advice or an extra pair of hands to assist them immediately!  As a client, you know that anytime, night or day, weekend or holiday, our team of professionals is there to take care of your home and your smallest family members—no matter what may come up.



The security of knowing you have your individual pet sitter, PLUS a team of highly-trained, local pet care experts backing them up, capable of handling just about any emergencies that could arise while you are away.
Peace of Mind
Peace of mind that your home and pet(s) are being well cared for in your absence by a company that is bonded, insured, carries workman’s compensation insurance and general liability insurance.
Their Own Environment
Pets remain in their secure environment, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells. They are less likely to be exposed to illness, injury or stress—which can occur with boarding, since animals from different households are often mixed together.
Diet & Exercise
Diet & exercise routine is uninterrupted.  Pets on raw food diets are often not allowed in boarding facilities.
Medications are delivered on schedule.
No Transport
You are not inconvenienced or rushed by having to transport your pet(s) before or after your trip.
Personal, Loving Attention
Personal, loving attention is given to every pet in the household, when possible (if you have an especially shy pet that would prefer not to be handled or loved on, we respect that).
Check Ins
Check in calls, texts, or emails from your sitter to give you updates.
No Hassle For Friends & Family
You won’t have to impose on friends, neighbors or relatives, who sometimes forget.
Crime Deterrent
Regular visits to your home may be a crime deterrent. Making sure your mail and packages are brought in, lights and or blinds alternated, as well as general daily activity, gives your home a “lived in” appearance.
Home Emergencies
Home emergencies like downed trees or power lines, frozen pipes, and broken air conditioning systems in the middle of summer are some of the many unforeseen issues we are accustomed to handling.
Happy & Healthy!
Your pet(s) will be there to greet you upon your arrival home – happy and healthy!
