About Us

A Few Fun Facts...ABOUT US

Jay and Leanna Gautney, CCPS Owners

CCPS (Country Critters Pet Sitters), was founded by Jay and Leanna Gautney in 2004 - now located in McMinnville Oregon. We are a personalized petcare agency, with tailored pet care services available to fit the needs of our pet clients. From backyard to barnyard - we care for them all! 

As residents in the PNW for over 40 years, with farm and military affiliations, we have collectively gained over 30 years experience in domestic and farm animal care. Years of training and life with animals have taught us pet behavior, instinct, animal needs, and expectations.

The name Country Critters Pet Sitters was formed because most of our clients were country-folk and my family roots are southern too. My momma always called me a Critter Sitter and the rhyme just stuck! I soon developed our brand, and service motto "quality care when you're not there!" Our organization and name turned into one which pet families could trust. 

We are strong pet advocates and highly involved in the pet industry. As a member of the board of directors for Homeward Bound Pets, and members of the McMinnville Chamber of Commerce, Women in The Pet Industry and Pet Sitters International – Pets and their people are our passion!

We currently have 7 Professional Petsitters working for us. As a well known brand in Yamhill County, we are growing rapidly. We are considering the possibility of adding new and expanded doggy daycare and pet educational training services in the future. 

If you are in need of professional in-home pet sitting or house sitting services and traveling soon, please contact us - we can certainly help. 

The Fur-balls of it all...



We also have a deep understanding of the added care necessary when working with farm and domestic animals.


CCPS strives to provide top notch quality pet care services in your home. We don't board your pets in our homes, but do come into your home to provide customized pet care. We offer personalized pet and home security services to fit your needs.
