A free, local pet care exchange finder
I recently found a wonderful local couple to sit my parrot and dog using the PetFam system. The service they provide is absolutely excellent. It's very comforting receiving texts and updates with photos showing how happy my pets are and how they are being well fed and exercised. They really go above and beyond, are very trustworthy and genuinely care for my pets and place as their own.
Through PetFam we've met several fellow pet owners with whom to swap care. Length of time away or our dog's special needs are never a problem. Our experience has been outstanding, having easily found reliable, trustworthy sitters who leave the house as clean or cleaner than when they got here. My only complaint is that I think the dog might like them better than us!
I was relocating to Vancouver and responded to a PetFam ad seeking care with dates that corresponded with my arrival. After a few Skype interviews, information exchanged and a visit to meet the owners, I had a new kitty friend and a beautiful apartment at which to land for several months, allowing me time to get my bearings, save some rent money and secure an apartment of my own.
