Holiday booked. Suitcase? Packed. Tickets? Check. Pets? All sorted.
Mad Paws, Australia’s largest pet-sitting community, gives owners the chance to holiday sans stress by placing their furry loved-ones in the hands of keen and caring minders. An animal Airbnb of sorts, pets can stay home and have sitters mind them on familiar turf or take a little vacation of their own to the home of a security-checked temporary guardian.
Although dogs and cats are among the most popular guests, Mad Paws isn’t just a service of sitters, carers, walkers and the rest. The site welcomes all manner of animal friends – from rats to reptiles and even ponies.
Animal owners not on holiday also have access to helpful daytime services such as dog walking and grooming, as well as day care and house visits to top up food (and a spot of patting) to put your pet at ease.
Additionally, thanks to a new partnership, Qantas Frequent Flyer members also receive benefits for finding a friend for their pawed pal. For each dollar spent on Mad Paws members will earn one Qantas Point.
