There is now a website where petowners can find each other in their local area and organise reciprocal petsitting. I have just read about this in my local Leader paper, thought ‘Wow!’ and then wondered how it worked..never dreaming it could be Australia/New Zealand-wide! It is.
Go to www.pethomestay.com
You contact likely sitters through the website and after the stay give feedback – also through the website.
Co-founder Tom LeGrice says:
“More than 100 sitters have registered in Melbourne and surrounds, either petowners themselves or people who just want to mind a pet for a couple of days.”
What a brilliant self-help idea for pet-lovers!
