About Terry and Rusty

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Many people have said to us that if reincarnation is real, I want to come back as your pet. We love being with animals. They are very intelligent and they can tell if a person is good. Like they say, "Actions Speak Louder than Words". Animals speak thru body language, eyes and facial expressions. An animals eyes have the power to speak a great language. We can read them. We've had all kinds of animals, rescued and rehabilitated many. We have vet care training/experience. Both of us have grown up having lots of animals. Our family consists of , two cats, RoughyLoon & OhNo, two dogs, Phoebe & Jake and fish (too many fish to list all their names.. ha ha). All are rescues. We take our dogs, and any we are babysitting, for morning, noon and nightly walks. They have all the room they could want to play, inside & out. We have several beds laying around. Lots of toys. We also have nap / chill out time. They need it. They're like little kids at day care here. We are very healthy & active people. Your baby will be treated like part of the family. It is awesome how quickly they become part of the pack.

Terry & Rusty are absolutely amazing hosts for my puppy! They made sure he had tons of fun (& lots of breaks, since he was having too much fun chasing all the pups around! He's only 3 months old!) & made him feel like home as well as like family! I'm glad they love him, and I know the feeling is mutual! I definitely recommend these hosts for your furbabies in the Mobile area!
Our furry girl sure was happy with Terry and Rusty! We needed to find a home for her for 3 weeks and we really lucked in. Terry and Rusty absolutely pampered our dog and treated her with such love and respect. They had formed such a great bond, it was a tearful goodbye. This is exactly the type of care you want your dog to have when you can't be with them. Thank you for all of your love!
Terry and Rusty were very personable and kept in touch with us. They made our dogs very happy! Having my dogs stay with them was a blessing. They kept our dogs very active and made sure they were loved. I have never doubted Terry and Rusty.. they are extremely trusting!!
Terry and Rusty are fantastic--they love your pet like he's their own, and they're extremely accommodating of your schedule. Otis had a wonderful time--he was tired from all the play, and a little bit mopey to leave his new friends! We'll definitely be going back.
**THE BEST.** Period. At first, I was nervous about boarding my dog with a couple that I didn't know. As soon as we entered their house I was reassured that my pup would be in fantastic hands.

Terry and Rusty are a rare find; genuine and caring, they spoiled my Joon from the get-go.
I will happily refer them to anyone needing a dog sitter. They are fantastic.
Buttons loved being with Terry and Rusty. She is an 11 year old dog who is very hesitant around other people and animals but fit right in their household. She slept with Terry and Rusty and loved being in Terry's lap. They sent me pictures and updates every day. I will definitely use them next time I need to leave her behind. I couldn't be happier with how she was taken care of and loved.
Terry and Rusty opened up their home to my newly adopted dog, Kona! They offered space for her to roam and play with other dogs for the 5 days I was away. Daily photos were sent to keep me updated on my fur baby! Couldn't have asked for a more suitable situation when going out of town. Would highly recommend! They are pet sitter saints! Thanks again!
They were very accommodating especially when it was a spur of the moment thing. They were sweet, sent pictures of my baby to me to help ease the separation.
I left my dog Gracie with Terry and Rusty for 10 days over the Christmas and New Years Holiday and they were terrific. They sent daily pictures and were always keeping me in the loop on how she was doing. She had such a good time she slept for three days once I got her back. I highly recommend them and will rebook with them if I need a dog sitter in the future.
Terry and Rusty were absolutely the best! In regards to my dog, it was the best decision I have ever made when it comes to boarding. If I am out of town, my dog stays with my parents, but since I was getting married in Florida and Louis had never stayed anywhere else, it was crucial for me to find the best possible place for him to stay while we were all at the wedding. Terry and Rusty put my mind to ease! They are extremely friendly, loving people who I now consider close family. Once I walked into their beautiful home, I myself felt at home, too. I received numerous photos on my phone daily. Louis was at ease and played with the other dogs, ran around the back yard, took nice walks, laid around on Terry's lap, ate cool treats and was the happiest pup around. I HIGHLY recommend you let Terry and Rusty keep your dog. You will NOT be disappointed, I can promise you that!
Rusty and Terry took such good care of my dog Oliver!!! I was so thankful to have found them on such short notice over a holiday weekend. I wasn't worried about Oliver at all while I was gone because I knew he was having a blast at their house. They have a great set up to accommodate animals, and they are definitely some of the most caring people I've ever met. I highly recommend them to anyone!
My little diva, Katie, had a great time with Terry, Rusty and their gang. Terry has an obvious love animals that you notice immediately. The meet and greet the week before completely set me at ease. While Katie was in their care, I received multiple pictures and updates every day. Katie is the only dog in our home, but she fit right in with theirs, and had so much fun she was exhausted when she returned home. I am completely satisfied with the care and love my girl received in their home and I will definitely use them again.
My fiance and I recently moved to Mobile and needed someone to watch our dogs, Andre and Alonzo. We chose Rusty and Terry based on previous reviews and we're so glad we did. They went above and beyond our expectations by spending ample time with them, allowing them to play with other dogs, and providing photos and feedback while we were gone. It really made us feel that much more confident in Rusty and Terry, and it allowed us to enjoy being away knowing our dog children were well taken care of. We look forward to allowing Andre and Alonzo to stay with Rusty and Terry again soon.
the best place that I could find in such a short notice.Fred loved it so much and we were so thankful to find someone as great as Terry and rusty to keep our pet.he truly enjoyed his selfand we were sent pictures and text messages of how he was doing.,you will not regret leaving your pet with them.
our dog fred had a wonderful time at Terry and Rustys house.they took very good care of him while we were away.I happen to find them through the website at the last moment.I did not want to leave him at a vets office in a crate all day and all night.he truly enjoyed his self and was well taken care of by Terry and Rusty. Me and my husband did a meet and greet first,and it was a great experience.we will use them again in the future.
I have no doubt that if Zeus ups and packs a bag and runs away from home the very first place I will look for him will be at Terry and Rusty's house! This is by far the very best experience I have ever had in leaving any of my pets with a vet or individual since 1994! Zeus just spent the last five days in a First Class "Doggie Camp" and I dare anyone to find any more loving and dedicated DogVacy pet sitters than Terry and Rusty.
Zeus had swim lessons, hiking trips, organized games, nap time, group sharing time, and even thunder storm therapy! He was allowed to cuddle with Terry and Rusty in their bed during a really bad thunder storm his last night in their care.
I received wonderful pictures on my I phone while out of town of Zeus as he participated in all of his activities and interactions with the other "campers!" When we picked Zeus up to take him home, he looked at my husband like he was saying, "Can't I stay just one more day Dad?"
I am so grateful beyond words for the obvious kinship that Terry and Rusty have towards ALL of the pets that they keep....birds, cats and dogs.
Zeus fell in love with them just as my husband and I have. Just another one of life's wonderful blessings.
Thank you doesn't seem enough to say, but thank you so much, Terry and Rusty for loving Zeus as your own.

Where should I began? Terry and Rusty was honestly a blessing to my baby Jack. I was in dire need of a trustworthy pet sitter and at the last minute. After reading their profile and praying about it. I knew Terry and Rusty was my best bet. I called the hotline and told them I do not want anyone but them. Jack immediately fell in love with them and their pets(He misses them) and they fell in love with him. I was a bit jealous(lol). But when we came back he was full of energy and I knew he had enjoyed himself. They are very knowledgeable and caring animal lovers. We began a great friendship and Terry still checks on Jack. I will recommend them over my own family and friends. They are truly the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(it took a while to do this review;working long hours, but i know the reviews helped me make one of the best decisions ever!)
Awesome as usual!! My dog was well taken care of, loved and spoiled. Terry and Rusty send updates multiple times per day including pics. They may sure you know your baby is safe and having fun. When I pick up my two year old Boxer mix, her tail is always wagging and she always seems to have had a great time.
Please compare the prices with your vet. It's about the same price but your animal will roam free in someone's home with a backyard and loads of love. Way better than a cold cage at the vets office.
Thanks Terry and Rusty!!
I had a great experience with Terry and Rusty! I left my dog with them for the weekend. They responded quickly to my request. They were very welcoming and sent pictures during the stay. My dog got along well with their dogs. Terry was flexible with the drop off and pick up times. I would happily leave my dog with them again.
If I could give 10 stars, I would. This loving Family took care of my dog as if she were one of their own. They spent time with her, they took pictures of her, they gave her lots of love and they send me daily updates of how my baby was doing including text pictures. They took my dog to the park, they took her out for walks and they even helped teach her new tricks and obedience training.
I would leave my dog with Rusty and Terry any time any day any place anywhere they are wonderful people who truly love animals and if you
live in the Mobile area this is definitely the place to leave your animal. My dog was super happy when I pick her up she didn't even want to leave. And the
dog sitter Terry said she Was going to start crying because she was going to miss my dog so much. Terry truly cares for animals and is a wonderful loving human being that you can definitely trust your animal with. I will be using them every time I go out of town from now on
I was thrilled to find Terry and Rusty. Our dog, Champ, was in wonderful hands as they treated him like their own. I received frequent updates which relieved my discomfort leaving him for over one week. I could not have asked for more! I was afraid that he would not want to come home! I highly recommend Terry and Rusty as "surrogate parents" and do not plan to ever leave Champ with anyone else.
Terry and Rusty are really, really awesome. They are kind and loving to my two pomeranians! My dogs were well taken care of while I was on vacation. I received many texted pictures and updates during my trip, which was helpful to my own separation anxiety from my babies! I would absolutely recommend them for anyone that needs pet-sitting. They are very accommodating, and they strive to make your pets comfortable while you're gone. Their own animals got along great with mine, which is awesome because my puppies needed to have some socialization with other animals.
Terry and Rusty were awesome!

We asked them to watch our one year old Catahoula (Dobby) for eleven days and they were amazing, friendly, and helpful every step of the way. Our dog requires a lot of work right now as he was recently hit by a car and now suffers from severe separation anxiety. They bent over backwards to accommodate Dobby. Terri took him on a run every morning, walks during the afternoon and evenings, and she took him to play areas where he could run free. Their dog Phoebe was a great playmate for him and very friendly. They never put Dobby in a crate once and even let him sleep in the room with them due to his anxiety. They send lots of pictures and give you an update every day. Both Terry and Rusty truly love animals and are wonderful people to care for a beloved pet. They raise the bar for pet sitting to a whole new level and are well worth the money. We are so glad we found them!! I would recommend their services to everyone, especially those with high maintenance dogs or dogs that need to be exercised regularly due to their energy level (as ours is both).

Thank you so much Terry and Rusty!
They watched my dogs for my wedding and I loved the updated pictures they sent. You knew they were in good hands. Great sitters!
Desperately in need of someone to take care of my dog in less than a day’s notice, I franticly searched the internet for a pet boarding company that I would feel comfortable leaving my baby with. I quickly found out that there weren’t that many to choose from in my area and even less that looked half way descent. Luckily, I came across I entered in my location and was directed to Terry and Rusty…two of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I must admit that, initially, I was very concerned about leaving my animal with anyone that I didn’t know, but, like I said, this was a last minute situation so I decided to proceed with the reservation. So glad I did!!! Not only did they take care of my animal like she was their own but they put my mind at ease by sending me text updates with pictures assuring me that she was right at home. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED….NICE PEOPLE, CLEAN ENVIRONMENT, EXCELLENT SERVICE @ A VERY REASONABLE PRICE. WHAT MORE CAN I SAY?!?!?!!
Our 14 year old shih tzu spent 3 nights in the home of Rusty and Terry, their 4 dogs, 2 cats and a beautiful parrot. After our arranged meet and greet I felt very comfortable leaving Roxy in their home. Their pets were well cared for and the environment was clean and pet friendly. Terry and Rusty were eager to stay in touch with us while we were away and updated us daily as to Roxy's well being. They even texted pictures! So glad to know I have a safe and comfortable place to leave our pets when we have to be away.
