My name is Eric Mintz and I am working with National Geographic to find some isolated caretakers. I was wondering if you could run a message to your group reading: "National Geographic Television would like to interview caretakers that work alone in isolated areas with no human contact and have to maintain and both their properties and their sanity as the guard and maintenance their facilities and locations. We are interested in learning more about the unique challenges and privileges you encounter working in these remote locations. If your current work isolates you for weeks at a time we would love to hear about the experience. If you are interested in speaking with us, please contact Eric Mintz at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 26th." Thank you in advance for your help in this matter!
A growing number of pet and home owners around the world are discovering the many benefits of using non-paid house sitters. The number of house sitting companies and websites has grown rapidly in recent years as home owners look for better solutions and travelers seek richer experiences with lower costs.
Pet and home owners everywhere have always faced the same challenge when they travel – how to care for their homes and beloved pets. Many pet owners never travel because they refuse to leave their pets in the care of others, while many other pet owners use house sitters to allow them to travel with less worry, expense and effort.
Since pets are often considered members of the family, kennel boarding is not an option for most pet owners, who won’t subject their loved ones to a caged stay of any duration. Bringing pets along for travel is often not realistic, especially when there are old, large, or multiple pets involved.
Animal experts also see the benefits. “Dogs are creatures of habit and are very emotionally connected to their home environment,” says Francine Miller, a canine behavior specialist. “It is always preferable to keep them in their home environment and in their normal routine to minimize stress.”
Nearly 50,000 home owners have registered on www.housecarers.com, Housecarers has been matching home owners and sitters since 2000. These owners are part of a large and growing segment of home owners enjoying the care and cost advantages of using pet-loving house sitters, who care for homes, pets, and even larger animals such as horses and llamas. Sometimes they care for injured or dying pets and help avert robberies and home disasters related to gas leaks, power outages, etc.

“The popularity of housesitting is growing rapidly and the demand for housesits is often greater than the supply,” says Ian White, the founder and owner of HouseCarers. “Many house sitting websites have popped up recently, but the key is to create a secure environment for both parties to make a personalized match.”
House sitters on housecarers.com receive no money for caring for homes, only accommodation. Home owners on the site pay no fees at all to connect with sitters.
“Housesitting is all about mutual benefit,” “And making new friends from around the world.”

We recently sold our home and started travelling full-time. Many people ask how we can afford to do this. Most of our expenses are paid out of our own pockets so staying in hotels every night can get very costly very fast. We have found a way to mitigate those costs by house sitting. We've been using a few different tools to make this possible but the biggest help for us with house sitting has been House Carers......Lauren Bassart Shares here experiences as a Homeowner and Housesitter in her Blog The Constant Rambler: Read entire story
