Professional Pet Sitters Needed!

HappyTails Pet Sitting is a growing and well-loved pet sitting company and we are seeking RELIABLE, HONEST, WELL-ORGANIZED members in the Broad Ripple area to add to our team. We are looking for individuals to do AM/PM Pet Sitting visits and Mid-Day Dog Walks. 

This is a Perfect job for animal lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and those who like to work independently. As a team member, you will be an independent contractor. You will be scheduled to go to client’s home to pamper, walk and care for their fur family so you must be absolutely trustworthy and be able to work independently.

It is recommended that you live within 5 miles of the Broad Ripple area (46220). If you do not live within 5 miles, please understand that you may end up traveling to/from work for longer periods than you are scheduled to work.

Information Regarding AM/PM Pet Visits

Visits are typically 2-4 times per day and can be scheduled for a few days up to a couple of weeks at a time. You’ll provide feeding, clean up, walking, plant watering, mail pick-up, etc. while clients are away. Visit times vary but are between the hours of 7 am and 10 pm. You will have breaks in between visits and will not be working the entire 15 hours. You will just need to be available during those hours as our clients need on the days you are scheduled to work.

Information Regarding Mid-Day Dog Walks

Walks are typically during the Mid-Day hours of 10 am – 4 pm for 25, 35 or 45 min.
