Keep pets safe at home

Some of our pet owners tell us that their pets are rescue animals and have a few issues of abandonment.

We also hear from other members of our network that you can train most pets by giving them a safe and predictable home environment. Part of that training can be to always ensure your pets are able to stay and enjoy their home even when you are away. How can you do that? Find checked pet-loving house sitters to care for them from a reliable company like Housesit Match. 

How does it work? 

You join as a pet and homeowner member, for this, there is a small annual fee. You get ID checked for safety and then build your advert saying when you are going on holiday. Housesitters are mailed your advert, they respond and then you choose whom you would like to care for your pets. 

What makes HouseSitMatch unique? 

The careful checking of all our members makes us unique. Unlike other housesitting and petsitting networks, at we ID check all our members. Walso offer housesitters a police and background check on registration. We do this because it makes our network safer and helps us maintain a high bar for housesitters caring for your precious pets and homes.  Please check our Trustpilot reviews online to see what our clients say about our service
