Managing care for mature pets matters

Mature pets: Often do better staying at home in their familiar environment.

Mature pets: Often do better staying at home in their familiar environment.

WHEN pets are grown and perhaps rather mature, it is very hard to leave them, however, sometimes we cannot plan our trips and we just need to find the best possible care for them at home.

We have a wide range of house and pet-sitters who are happy to care for young pets and mature pets in their own home. It means you can go away on holiday or business trip knowing that they are being nurtured and more importantly that their vital early year routines are being maintained.

How do you benefit from HouseSitMatch?

At HouseSitMatch we help you to find checked sitters online. Membership of our network offers you access to a secure network of checked pet and house-sitters. We hide your contact details and address for security.

You post an advert ahead of your travel dates, we publish the advert then house-sitters apply. You can view their profiles and chat with them before you accept an applicant. Join as a Premium member and we help you at each stage of the process to get you started.

What makes HouseSitMatch unique?

Unlike other house-sitting and pet-sitting networks at Housesit we ID check all our members. We check their experience and we police and background check sitters on registration to ensure you have a quality experience. We do this because it makes our network safer and it helps us maintain a high bar for house-sitters caring for your precious pets and homes.
