My experience in housesitting has always included animal care; I just wanted to list this here as well in case anyone needs their house (or mail) looked after while they are away, and happens to either not have pets, or just looked in this category first.
I live in NYC area, nut can commute up and down the East Coast until I land a traditional, rent-paying job.
Training & Qualifications
I have been housesitting for schoolmates, family, and friends-of-friends since 2009 in both California (San Francisco) and New York (Brooklyn, Manhattan). Experience also includes giving medicine to animals, light housekeeping, garden maintenance, and pet care.
Availability & Preferences
For the time being, I am avail Jul 17-23, and anytime after July 30. *trade/simbi rate depends on distance, # of pets, etc. Very fkexible to meet your needs.
