Love pets? You can see the world and stay for free. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. A Web site called TrustedHouseSitters.com was launched to help people solve what CEO Andy Peck calls a common problem…when people go away they’re concerned about what to do with their pets. The site enables them to find pet sitters for free…in exchange for a place to stay. He calls it a win win…
“We found that 70 percent of people retire and they don’t have the funds to enjoy the break they’d like to. And house sitting enables them to enjoy a break, caring for pets, without the usual accommodation or eating out costs. And for owners, it’s fantastic, because they get their home and pets looked after for free.”
Sometimes for a couple of days….sometimes for weeks or more. The catch is you do need to be a member of the site which costs 99 dollars a year. There are members of TrustedHouseSitters.com around the world. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
