Do you love animals? Do you love being outside? This might be the right place for you to start.

Pet Care Specialists are the backbone of our business. They work either full-time or part-time. They visit pets daily. They drive to the pet parent’s home, greet the pet, and perform the services. Sometimes this is taking a dog for walk, other times is playing with the puppy or cat, or spending time with rabbits, hamsters or birds. It may simply be feeding the aquatic pets. Each visit is unique, and you’ll get to know the pets you care for, and their families.

As a Pet Care Specialist, you are entrusted with the care of a family member who is well-loved. You’ll be responsible for safely handling the pet and carrying out other services as requested on your visit, reporting back to your Team Lead or your Manager, and making notes about your visit.
