They don't! House sitters will love your pets and care for your home for free.
Built on a foundation of trust, one of the many benefits of a TrustedHousesitters membership is the care-oriented focus of the relationships that blossom within our community. A win-win for pet lovers who travel, we believe that by engaging a trusted house sitter happy to house and pet sit free of charge, both parties reap the benefit of a relationship-based transaction, rather than one that is entirely financially focused.
Sitters feel that receiving free accommodation when they house sit in exchange for taking on basic responsibilities during their stay, is a fair and balanced exchange. Sitters applying to care for your home and pets may be from your home town / city, county, country or even further afield - you choose the sitter who suits your requirements best. It's great knowing your pets can stay safe at home, in their own bed, when you can't be there, being loved by a sitter who is doing this because they love pets and not because they're simply motivated to earn money in their spare time!
TrustedHousesitters is not a solution for commercial sitters or house sitting agencies, nor do we endorse any commercial house sitting services. As such commercial house sitting services and commercial pet sitters looking to make money are not permitted to list with TrustedHousesitters.
