Now Hiring!We are currently hiring for an Overnight House-Sitter/Pet-Sitter. **We have a specific need for House-sitters available the 2019 Christmas/New Years holidays!
This position requires OVERNIGHT STAYS (sleeping over in a client's home) with the client's animals. House-sitting includes walking the dog(s), feedings, medications if necessary, and maintaining each animal's routine. House-sitting may also include other pet-sitting or vacation care tasks such as bringing in the mail/newspaper, plant care, cleaning up messes (ie: hairballs, accidents), and keeping the home in order while the clients are away.Each overnight stay begins from the dinner period (arrival between 5-7pm) and continues until the morning period (departure between 7-9am). House-sitting jobs last anywhere from 1 night to 2 weeks.House-sitters are independent contractors with Heaven Sent and are offered client "bookings" as clients schedule vacation care with us.
House-sitters work on an "as-needed" basis and accept or reject each booking on an individual basis.The base rate paid to a house-sitter for each night of house-sitting is $32.50 for one dog and goes up from there depending on client surcharges. There are extra fees given to the house-sitter for additional animals in the home, extra visits scheduled during the daytime, and for holidays (gratuity is not reflected in this rate).Please note: House-sitters are NOT able to bring guests with them into the client's home during their stay.

Heaven Sent Pet Care was founded by Susan Forte in 1999. After practicing corporate law in a large Washington, D.C. law firm for 6 years, Susan took over her family's Philadelphia mail-order business and grew it into a highly profitable, productive entity as well as a really fun and nurturing place to work. Ironically, that is where she discovered the pet-sitting industry---while researching pet related products for a new catalog.
Susan had two life dreams since she was a child: to have her own business, and to work with animals. Heaven Sent Pet Care married the two. Helping to create and build Heaven Sent has truly been one of the most rewarding, challenging, and exciting ventures she has ever been a part of in her entire life. The pets, their families, and the pet care specialists she has gotten to know over the years have all been absolutely wonderful. Since 1999, her Heaven Sent business embodies her mission to serve pets, parents, her Walkers and Sitters, and the community with excellence and integrity.
