Become a Sitter

We’re looking for reliable and trust-worthy animal lovers to join our House and Pet Sitters team – could this be you?

Are you ready to start living RENT-FREE, simply through caring for other people’s homes and their furry residents (occasionally the slippery or feathered ones) in some of Perth’s loveliest suburbs?

Our Sitters come from all walks-of-life and take on the sitter lifestyle for many reasons … some find it a great way to save money – even to buy a home of their own, others take it on as a sea-change while they renovate or rent their house out …. others simply do it to get their ‘pet fix’ once in a while because they’re not able to have a pet of their own!

Like the sound of this? Take a look through our checklist below, and if you find yourself answering ‘yes’ more often then not, we invite you to fill in the Sitter Application or give Jenny a call so she can answer any other questions you may have.


Is house and pet sitting for me?

  • I’m a single, couple or retiree
  • I love animals! and I’ve had experience caring for them before
  • I understand this is not a paid position, but I’d love to SAVE MONEY living in rent-free accomodation not having to worry about buying furniture or paying for utilities!
  • I have a caring nature and would be happy to look after someone else’s pets as if they were my own
  • I’m reliable and trust-worthy, happy to keep someone else’s home clean and in safe hands
  • I’m flexible and like the idea of exploring new suburbs and areas through house-sitting
  • I understand I will need to provide a current police clearance
If you find yourself saying ‘yes’ to these, it might be the perfect thing for you!

I think it’s for me – now what?
