Become a Carey Pet Sitter

As we continue to grow, we are always on the lookout for great, experienced sitters. The nature of our business allows a flexible schedule for reliable, organized animal lovers with excellent time management skills.

Our pet visits provide an incredible opportunity to spend time with a variety of animals to supplement an existing income. Pet visits range from stopping by while their parents work or travel, to staying overnight at a client's home to insure the safety of their pets and household.

This type of work is a big responsibility - living, breathing animals will be relying on you to be a punctual, organized and competent care giver. Previous pet care experience, ideally dog walking, pet sitting, volunteering in a shelter, or working at a dog daycare, kennel, or veterinarian's office is a plus.

Trustworthiness, plenty of common sense, and an ability to follow detailed client instructions are key criteria to working with us.

Our team members are independent contractors not employees; therefore, there is no guarantee of work, assignments or income. Mileage or gas is not reimbursable but may be deducted on income tax returns as a business expense (consult your accountant or CPA).
