House/pet sitting

30


30 per visit

Don't leave your home empty while you travel!! Plus your pets can stay in the comfort of their own home. Dogs get walked and loved. Cats get to walk on me and be loved. I've also watched chickens, goats, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, birds, tortoises, etc... even a skunk! I'll check the mail, water the plants and make it obvious that the home is occupied, rather than empty. Price is per calendar day and includes up to 2 healthy pets. If you have more, or your pets are high maintenance, let's chat about a fair price. I don't mind doing medications or caring for sick animals, as long as we go over everything in person before you leave.

* This is for staying at your home while you travel. I don't have a car, so coming out for daily visits is not an option. In case of an emergency requiring a vet visit, I can use Lyft.

Training & Qualifications


I have extensive experience with pet sitting and will happily give references. I personally have cats and a chinchilla but grew up with dogs, birds, tortoises and various other pets. I previously worked in a pet store and as a cat rescuer. I've given medications and am comfortable taking care of older or ill pets, as long as I know ahead of time.

Availability & Preferences


any time

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I LOVE to travel but it is so expensive from Hawaii. If anyone has vouchers they won't be using (and that can be transferred) I'd love to trade. Just let me know what you think is reasonable. I'...

About Charissa Pacheco

I've lived in Hawaii for over 7 years now and absolutely love it! I'm a nanny and photographer who also makes jewelry (mostly sterling silver and glass) and loves to do crafts. I have extensive expe...rience with pet sitting and house sitting, as well. If you are visiting Hawaii, I'd love to give you inside tips and help you plan your trip, especially if you are trying to do it on a budget. Being frugal in paradise is my specialty! My newest adventure is that I've found a way to get scuba certified and go diving for FREE! WooHoo! I'm doing a work exchange program with a dive shop here on Oahu. I'm a "tank monkey" for one shift a week in exchange for my lessons and equipment. After a pretty horrendous health ordeal, it is exciting to be getting my life back and being active again. I'm into the "crunchy" lifestyle and prefer to make as much as possible myself. I've been brewing kombucha for 10 years now. I also make sourdough and yogurt. If there is a way to DIY something, I've probably tried it (or want to try it!)show more
