My daughter is obsessed with animals; every she asks if she can get a dog, cat, brother or sister. The joke is not lost on me. I am not a animal fan, but I come from an animal-loving family so my daughter’s interest does not come as a surprise. She has a “doggy oma” and a “cat oma” (oma means grandmother in Dutch.) I grew up with many animals: cats, dogs, chickens, goose, hamsters and fish. My mother is a true animal lover, but I did not inherit this gene. I don’t want any cats or dogs to look after till they die.
But my mother’s guilt does not want to deprive my daughter of the joys of pet ownership. When I found out about this pet service called “Spare Leash”, I got a idea. I can make my daughter’s dreams come true without owning a pet for life. I have experience taking care of pets, and my daughter has so much love to share with pets.
Spare Leash matches pet sitters to people who want somebody to take care of their pets instead of putting the animals in boarding. This seems like a win-win situation for both parties. Spare Leash gets you connected to people who want to help with pets. The services include: check-in for pets who are alone at home, visits to the vets, dog walking, house sitting and boarding.
This service is already a huge success in Shanghai and is expending to Beijing. Do you need help taking care of your family pet? Or do you want to be a pet sitter? Check out their website spareleash.com, or scan the QR code below to enter their official WeChat Account.
