We Specialize in Special Care

  Rainbow Pet Sitter provides consistent, 24-hour quality in-home care for pets with special needs. With over a decade of caring specifically for animals with behavioral and medical needs, we recognize every pet is unique in the care required. Our clients—furry, feathered, scaly, and human—trust us to provide customized care based on our harmonious approach. Strong relationships with our clients are built on incorporating their knowledge and bond with their pet. We collaborate with New York City’s best trainers to ensure training stays consistent while your pet is in our care. This allows us to create a routine that keeps life as consistent as possible, minimizing—if not eliminating— stress for both pet and owner.


  We take pride in being a National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce LGBT Certified Business Enterprise. An intense passion for animals and the LGBTQ+ community is what motivated, owner, Liz Cooney to start a business that serves both the community and animals she loves. As a former pet parent of a dog with severe behavioral and medical challenges, Liz understands firsthand how difficult it is to find adequate, specialized care.  She brings nearly two decades of experience caring for animals including rehabilitating dogs with serious behavioral challenges, administering both common and unique medical treatments to a variety of animals, and formal education and training in animal care.        


We strive to be a socially conscious business combining the empowerment of LGBTQ+ folks with an extensive background in animal, care, behavior, and rehabilitation. Our goal is to provide the best in pet care, a great client experience, create jobs for the LGBTQ+, and a safe and empowering work environment. We believe in treating clients like family.
