A lovely sounding lady emailed me from America this morning. She had been looking at our Christian House Sitters web site and was astounded that she could get a Christian to live in her house and look after her pets while she and her family have a holiday.
She said that last year they employed a pet sitting service. The sitters visited her dog for 20 minutes each morning, giving it some fresh water, this visit lasted 20 minutes. They visited again during the day to take the dog for a half hour walk and for a final 20 minute visit to feed and settle the dog in the evening.
She said this cost her $48 per day. They were away for 2 weeks so dog care alone cost them $672.
The dog and indeed her home were left unattended overnight.
With our service she can have a family stay in the house, look after the house and look after the dog and it will not cost her anything. At the same time as saving $672 she is giving another Christian a holiday and supporting Christian work in South Africa.
She was beside herself with appreciation.
I am so glad we are doing something right.
