What is House and Pet Sitting?
If you have pets, a house sitter looks after your pets and cares for them as if they were their own. House and pet sitting saves you the high cost of placing your pets in a boarding facility. When you arrive home, you will find that your pets are much happier that they were able to stay in the safety of their own home.
While you’re away, enjoy receiving the photos or videos, along with “news from home” and mail, newspaper, packages, water indoor and outdoor plants will be taken care of as well.
