Your pet’s home away from home

Font Size:

Are you a pet-owner looking to get away on a holiday during the summer but don’t want to impound your pooch at the local kennel? PetHomeStay is the answer for which you’ve been searching.

PetHomeStay is a service with the simple aim of connecting pet-owners with trustworthy pet-sitters. It works like Airbnb, which links travellers up with home-owners willing to rent their spare rooms for a good price.

The service is open to all kinds of pets, from cats and dogs to turtles and birds – it’s just a matter of finding the right sitter.

Pet-sitters set up a profile with a photo, information about themselves, where they live and their price. All the pet-owner has to do is choose the person who suits them, while PetHomeStay takes a 15 per cent cut of the price.

The site is also perfect for people who love pets but might not want to own them. Ian from Melbourne isn’t ready to own another dog, but wants to care for someone else’s after the passing of his two Golden Retrievers. Marie from Sydney, who is looking for a workout buddy says, “I’m very active and love running, so your dogs would be in safe hands and have lots of toys and treats.” Becoming a pet-sitter is as simple as setting up a profile.

The service is available Australia-wide but most popular in Melbourne and Sydney. So, the next time you’re looking for a place to house your precious pet, look no further than PetHomeStay.
