SITUATIONS-WANTED AD:

RURAL ANIMAL CARETAKER OFFERS COMFORTABLE DEPENDABILITY, SEEKS
QUIET BEAUTY. I’m a bit worn around the edges like a
favorite pair of jeans whose seams have been washed into
softness; still serviceable, just easier to wear.  So when I work
with folks they sorta get that seamless comfortable fit without
any unnecessary friction. People who have animals requiring care
from strangers need that comfortable dependability coupled with
hard skills and the grit it takes to put animals first day after
day that I represent:   
Extensive multi-species (cows, dogs, camels, chickens, pigs,
parrots, horses, donkeys, goats, snakes) animal care experience -
domestic and exotics, elders and infants. Complete list of two
and four legged species and references available. Embrace
physical work I can accomplish at my own pace, though clear
direction cheerfully accepted. Enjoy defining and resolving
problems creatively. If I don’t know how to do it yet,
I’ll bust my butt learning what we need me to know to get
‘er done your way. Lots of hard skills, but amongst most
useful attributes are a can-do attitude and determination.  
Seeking rural lifestyle prob’ly west of Rockies –
remoteness strongly preferred, temperature extremes acceptable.
Need quiet dry comfortable sleeping space, some privacy, a way to
cook my food that doesn’t involve a campfire, and a serene
place to read comfortably even after dark. Off-grid great, may
need refresher course to maintain. Indoor water and bathroom
appreciated, not required. Cell phone/computer service
availability welcome luxury.
What I DON’T want is to work too physically too much of the
time unless it involves direct contact with animals (two
hours/day of shoveling snow or shit is way more than plenty but
24/7 lambing or daily milking 2x/day is perfectly acceptable),
constant human companionship or noise or to be surrounded by
disturbing disorder/discord/drama/depressed druggies. Am way past
any “friends with benefits” nonsense. Can be as tough
as situation demands, but strongly prefer peaceful positive
environment. 
	You can trust me with your animals – more skilled or
dependable care than I provide just doesn’t exist – I
will meet their needs, period. Your property will be meticulously
cared for as well, but more because it’s needful than
because I love doing it. Mowing is just never as much fun as
grooming (any) animal, you know?  Please contact me about any
(outlandish or otherwise) opportunity that may exist for us to
work together. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

old is not for sissies. I am however a very independent person. I
am willing to teach someone with the right attitude for learning
and following directions anything I know, which may not be much
:) Basic skills that would be very helpful but not necessary are
the ability to operate farm equipment, welding equipment,
mechanical skills, building fence, and doctoring animals. At
least some experience with horses, both ground work and riding
skills, would be helpful. I have cattle sometimes and although
helpful to have knowledge of cattle it is not a necessity. Duties

COLORADO

HOUSESITTER(S) NEEDED in southeastern Colorado for about a week
from  late July and back in the first week of August. This is NOT
a paid position. I need a couple or single person (non-smokers)
to care for my property and animals ... horses, goats, dogs, cats
and an assortment of birds. There are easy chores here: feed and
water in the morning (about 20 minutes) and then again in the
evening (15 minutes). The longest "chore" will be
walking the dogs that I acquired over the years. I would like to
think that they are really fun for you to be around. There are
two Border Collie Crosses and two Great Pyrenees to help mind the
bird area. (On a serious note Border Collies are extremely smart
and willing, so it would be essential for you to be confident
around dogs). The walking takes about 50 minutes twice a day ...
not sure who is giving who exercise. Accommodation will be the
master bedroom, with attached bathroom. The house has two
bedrooms, two bathrooms, den, lounge, and kitchen with an
attached dining/sun room. Clean and tidy. I would appreciate
coming home to a cleaned house please. My home has TV, DVD,
video, wireless internet, and a sewing machine. The property is
in town and is seven acres (or two town blocks). The town is 90
minutes southeast from Colorado Springs. Use of a car is
possible. We have several bicycles available also. There are a
couple of lakes really handy; beautiful at this time of year for
a wander. You can also walk to the excellent community library
and into town. Our rural, farming community population is 2,000.
The wider area has an early trading settlement to visit; the
Arkansas River is close by, preserved dinosaur tracks, and many
places if you like exploring your environs. First time
housesitters are OK. You just ought to love animals and be happy
to spend time in their company. I apologize but I am NOT set up
for your own animals nor young children. There are no critters
inside my home. Thanks for your interest. You may well recognize
this ad as I have posted with The Caretaker Gazette before.
Please feel free to re-apply if you are interested and qualify.

AUSTRALIA 

WE NEED A HOUSE AND PET-SITTER starting July 35th for two weeks
in Geraldton, a port in the mid-west region of Western Australia.
We have a lovable old boxer dog. We live by the ocean in a very
comfortable home. If you’re interested, please contact
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

URGENT NEED due to a housesitter cancellation. We need a
housesitter starting June 22 until July 8 this year. We will
actually be leaving on the 25th of June, but think it’s
fair to overlap some days in the lead up to allow our two dogs
and the housesitter to get to know each other. We have a modern
comfortable house on five nice quiet green acres in Bells Bridge,
14 km north of Gympie. There is no problem with our housesitter
using our wi-fi for free and our iMac with a guest account, no
problems. We have 12 pet sheep that require no care as they have
excellent fencing, shelter water and food. We also have six
little hens that free range during the day and get safely locked
in their "chicken tractor" each night. There is a fish
tank that will only require some granules daily for the four fish
inside. Then there are our beloved dogs: Bea, a 15-year-old
desexed female whippetand a bull terrier who we bought when she
was 16 weeks old as a rescue from the lost dogs home in
Melbourne. For years she was very afraid of strangers but over
time she has calmed right down and is a lovely, easy, happy girl,
and still very healthy. Then we have Dan, a 4-year-old intact
male Maremma (Italian sheepdog). He is a real character, a big
happy healthy boy but not boisterous, just hangs out with Bea
mostly on the back deck where they love to be near us. Both these
dogs enjoy people who are low key, easy, gentle and patient. If
someone thinks loudness or force is the way to treat an animal
then it is likely Bea will cower fearfully and not obey, and Dan
will object and stand his ground. They both are happy and well
loved dogs so there should be no problems with a kind person.
They both have their beds on the big back deck and meals are
there as well. They have the free run of the whole property and
get on well with the sheep and chooks. Please call

weeks for this healing process from the car-insurance, and so get
many treatments for these 12 weeks, I need someone who can
oversee three exchange people arriving the first Friday in May,
and preferably can come before still in April, to finish the
ohana ratna jungalow’s renovation, so it can be lived in
while finishing the entire ohana project. Please let me know if
you would work 20 hours a week for free housing, and access to an
outside vegetable garden. Our fruit trees produce mainly during
winter months, as we have citrus and avocado and bananas and are
on 1,200 ft. You need to actually be willing to work the four
hours each day, know your skills and be able to communicate with
me about our plans and actualize our very simple ideas to make
this work. You will learn some very good bamboo building skills.

COLORADO 

HOUSESITTER(S) NEEDED in southeastern Colorado for a few weeks
from mid-February to the end of March. This is not a paid
position. I need a couple or single person (non- smokers) to care
for my property and animals... horses, goats, dog, cats and an
assortment of birds. These are the chores here: feed and water
all the critters in the morning (about 20 minutes with two
people) and then feed again and secure in the evening (15
minutes). The critters all know the procedure and have the
routine down by heart. I will need someone who is willing to
continue the sprouting of the barley fodder which is a new
venture for me... and the trays subsidize the food for all the
critters. This is about an hour task each day... you can YouTube
the concept, or google for more information. The drought and the
shortage of hay in the area have forced me to explore this source
of food for the animals. Then the longest "chore" is
walking the dogs... I would like to think that you enjoy this
exercise yourself and it's not a drag doing so. We have two very
affectionate Pyrenees (a male and female) who mind the bird area
and love to come out for a walk twice a day (a half mile). I then
walk with the two Collies (two miles in the AM and one at night)
on the walking track out in the fields. The trees may need
watering utilizing the drip system… this only involves
turning on and off the faucets/hydrants. I'll hope for spring
rains. Accommodation will be the master bedroom, with attached
bathroom. The house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, den, lounge,
and kitchen with an attached dining room. Clean and tidy. My home
has TV, DVD, video, wireless internet, sewing machine, and all
the essentials like a bread making machine and coffee maker. The
property is in town and is seven acres (or two town blocks). The
town is 90 minutes from Colorado Springs. We have several
bicycles available. There are a couple of lakes really handy;
beautiful at this time of year for a wander. You can also walk to
the excellent community library and into town. Our rural, farming
community population is 1,200. The nearby counties have an early
trading settlement to visit, the Arkansas River close by,
preserved dinosaur tracks, and many places if you like exploring
your environs. First time housesitters are OK. You just ought to
love animals and be happy to spend time caring for them. Overall
this is an active housesit for someone who is open to learning,
and being engaged. I start my day outside at 8 AM, and after all
the walking, feeding and barley tray work, I'm done by 11 AM. I
then start walking and feeding again at 4:30 PM and I'm done by
5:30 PM. But I am not rushing and enjoy being outside and in the
fresh air. We have lovely sunsets here. I am sorry, but I am not
set up for your own animals, nor young children. There are no
critters inside my home. Thanks for your interest. You may well
recognize this ad as we have posted here before... please feel
free to reapply if you wish. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
