Our platform is free; animal care is usually not. PETCARE24 has no affect on the hourly wage as this is usually arranged by the two parties.

To get the highest possible applicant resonance, give the potential caretakers the most “accurate picture” of the job. Try to fill as many of the provided fields as possible with as much information as possible. Including pictures makes your ad much more attractive. 

When creating a job, we publish the name you provided, the location you provided, photos you uploaded and any public profile you linked to. We WILL NOT make your Email address public. When you create a Pet-Sitter profile, we will publish any information you give us, except your email address. When a Pet-Sitter contacts a Job-owner via the contact form, the email address of the pet-sitter is provided as a mean of direct contact.

At PETCARE24 you can find a caretaker for almost any pet. Frequently there is a need for a dog sitter or cat sitter. If you are looking for an animal care for your rodents (eg hamsters or mice), birds, fish, reptiles or even farm animals, you can also post an advertisement.

Our registered caretakers offer both daily and hourly rates or can take care of your pet for longer periods, for example, if you are traveling.

You can specify the desired care location directly in your ad. Thanks to our large database, you can find PETCARE24 private individuals and companies who are in your area and are happy to come to your home or have their own rooms to provide care.

Especially when a holiday is planned, a suitable care for the beloved pet is often sought.

PETCARE24 also offers animal sitters which take care of your dog or cat over a longer period of time – thus also ensuring care overnight. When posting an ad, indicate whether the care is taken at your home or your pet is kept at the animal sitter.
