FREE RENT available for dog professionals (couple only) in
Encino. We are a non-profit small dog rescue in search for a
responsible and stable live-in couple, with at least one person
who has extensive experience as either a vet-tech, dog trainer,
or very experienced dog handler. A groomer may also be
considered. Must know how to approach and handle timid,
frightened, shy, and sometimes aggressive dogs. This arrangement
would be an exchange of a one bedroom unit on a property that
also houses the organization's office headquarters for your time
and care for our dogs. Most of our dogs are under 20 pounds and
we are not focused on one specific breed. Although you must love
dogs, you may not have your own pet as you will be required to
care for approximately 10 dogs on the property. There is already
a stray cat on the property that relies on us for food and water,
and companionship. Responsibilities will include general
caretaking of the property, including cleaning, maintenance of
yard and office headquarters, daily dog care such as feeding,
medicating, and exercising, keeping the property tidy and
presentable while ensuring noise level is kept to a minimum, and
showing dogs to potential adopters and fosters by appointment
when needed. You must be comfortable with other employees and
volunteers to be on the property during the daytime hours, and
you must be comfortable with dogs in your living quarters when
necessary. We are not looking for someone who simply needs free
rent. We are looking for someone who is passionate about dogs and
rescuing who doesn't mind being surrounded by dogs all day long.
Ideally, one of you would be a Vet Tech, trainer, or similar
dog-professional while the other may have a part-time day-job. As
long as someone is always on the property each morning and each
night to ensure they are always monitored. This means that if you
go out at night to dinner and a movie, you must enlist a
volunteer for the hours that you are gone if available, as long
as you never leave the property unattended when our staff is not
there. The property is clean, safe, and basic. It has
approximately 700 sq. ft. tile floors, laundry, stove,

ALASKA

CARETAKER NEEDED at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX near the 69 mile marker
on Steese Highway (Highway 6). This is solely a free place to
live (a dry cabin with some propane provided). You can live here
rent-free, but no salary is provided. There are several cabins
with propane heaters, and also one with a wood stove. There is no
Internet provided, however, there is a Hughes Net dish on the
property which can be activated and paid for at the caretaker's
expense. These are dry cabins with no running water. There is a
creek nearby for non-potable water uses. Otherwise, drinking
water will need to be hauled in from town. Also, a way to move
the snow in winter will need to be provided by the caretaker. We
have equipment on the property that cannot be used for liability
purposes. Electricity is solar (minimal in winter) and 14 KW
generator powered. Also, the caretaker will need to provide
diesel fuel for the generator. Fairbanks is an hour and 15
minutes away. Also, 10 miles north on Steese is the Alaska
Highway Department which can provide emergency service any time
of the year. This is a live-in position that requires you to stay
on the property at all times. We do understand trips to town will
be required, but this should be done at a maximum of twice a
month. The purpose of your stay is to protect the equipment and
eliminate vandalism on the property. There is a camp dog (a husky
named Lilly) that will need to be taken care of. Food will be
provided for her at our expense (not the caretaker). We will need
at least two references, and a background check will be done.
Also, a driver's license/state ID will be required. A phone
interview will be conducted, and, if we think you are a good fit,
we will schedule a person-to-person interview on the property. A
waiver will be required which frees us of responsibility for any
injuries incurred on the property. Other than that it is one of
the most beautiful and quiet parts of Alaska. If all of the above
is no problem, or if you have additional questions please call
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX or email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX The best time
to get an answer would be after 2pm (no calls after 5pm please).
Otherwise, you can leave a message and we will get back to you.
Thanks.

VERMONT

CABIN, LAND USE AVAILABLE on a beautiful Southern Vermont
property in exchange for caretaking/animal care. After three
years, our current caretaker couple will be leaving on July 1st
to start their own farm, thus we are looking for two adults who
are responsible, conscientious, trustworthy, energetic and who
meet our requirements, to take their place, to live on-site,
full-time, in a picturesque, rustic, quiet, small cabin that is
on a 100-acre beautiful property with a 230-year-old historic
farmhouse, barns, and other outbuildings, in Windham County, VT.
The cabin is across a quiet dirt road from our home and is
offered in exchange for weekly chores which will include daily
animal care (currently sheep, chickens), vegetable/flower
gardening, light construction, pasture management, painting, land
clearing, property oversight and snow removal. The caretakers
must be competent at animal care, climbing ladders, cutting
firewood, gardening, and keeping the property well-tended. We are
not a B&B but we keep the place looking like one. Our current
caretakers have their own sheep, chickens, bees, a dairy cow, and
dog. We generally are happy for new caretakers to have similar
limited animals (the barn, pastures and property are perfect for
raising such animals). The work will involve about 20 hours/week,
including weekend work (mandatory) - some for pay and the rest in
exchange for the exclusive use of the cabin. We will also pay
your utilities and provide a shared laundry room, use of the
private trails/woods, sledding hills, pastures, tennis court,
pond and nearby lake. The property is two miles from a
quintessential picture-postcard Vermont village with general
store and Post Office, and is 30 minutes from a larger,
full-service town. The unfurnished cabin (about 280 sq. ft.) is
insulated, has simple electricity, a Vermont Castings wood stove,
a sleeping loft accessed by a ladder, and a covered porch
overlooking a pond. There is no running water, kitchen or toilet
in the cabin. Available for the caretakers' use is a rustic "barn
house" that is across the dirt road from the cabin, which
contains a large camp kitchen, outdoor stone BBQ, bathroom with
shower, laundry room, and three-season outdoor hot water shower.
At times, the "barn house" is shared with other caretakers,
and/or our guests but primarily is for the use of the caretakers.
There is plenty of room for your own garden; a gentle dog and/or
cat is fine. No smoking/drugs permitted anywhere on the property.
The utilities are basic and the electric/septic system will not
permit occupancy by more than two people. Experience with
gardening, farm animal care, tractor operation/upkeep, property
maintenance, chain saw/power tools is required. Being
trustworthy, responsible, neat and considerate is mandatory. This
is for a planned two to three year commitment or longer. Two
persons are needed, as some jobs require such and to provide
needed coverage. An extensive background check will be
undertaken. Please send a detailed letter describing your current
situation, your background and experience, skills and any
questions. A telephone interview will be held with qualified
applicants to further determine the best fit for all before
meeting and showing the property. A start date around July 1st,
earlier accommodation is possible. Please read the requirements
carefully and do not respond if you do not meet our requirements.
To apply, please email your resume and references to
caretakergazette@gmail.com and include the words 'Southern
Vermont' in the subject line for screening.

VERMONT

CABIN, LAND USE AVAILABLE on a beautiful Southern Vermont
property in exchange for caretaking/animal care. After three
years, our current caretaker couple will be leaving on July 1st
to start their own farm, thus we are looking for two adults who
are responsible, conscientious, trustworthy, energetic and who
meet our requirements, to take their place, to live on-site,
full-time, in a picturesque, rustic, quiet, small cabin that is
on a 100-acre beautiful property with a 230-year-old historic
farmhouse, barns, and other outbuildings, in Windham County, VT.
The cabin is across a quiet dirt road from our home and is
offered in exchange for weekly chores which will include daily
animal care (currently sheep, chickens), vegetable/flower
gardening, light construction, pasture management, painting, land
clearing, property oversight and snow removal. The caretakers
must be competent at animal care, climbing ladders, cutting
firewood, gardening, and keeping the property well-tended. We are
not a B&B but we keep the place looking like one. Our current
caretakers have their own sheep, chickens, bees, a dairy cow, and
dog. We generally are happy for new caretakers to have similar
limited animals (the barn, pastures and property are perfect for
raising such animals). The work will involve about 20 hours/week,
including weekend work (mandatory) - some for pay and the rest in
exchange for the exclusive use of the cabin. We will also pay
your utilities and provide a shared laundry room, use of the
private trails/woods, sledding hills, pastures, tennis court,
pond and nearby lake. The property is two miles from a
quintessential picture-postcard Vermont village with general
store and Post Office, and is 30 minutes from a larger,
full-service town. The unfurnished cabin (about 280 sq. ft.) is
insulated, has simple electricity, a Vermont Castings wood stove,
a sleeping loft accessed by a ladder, and a covered porch
overlooking a pond. There is no running water, kitchen or toilet
in the cabin. Available for the caretakers' use is a rustic "barn
house" that is across the dirt road from the cabin, which
contains a large camp kitchen, outdoor stone BBQ, bathroom with
shower, laundry room, and three-season outdoor hot water shower.
At times, the "barn house" is shared with other caretakers,
and/or our guests but primarily is for the use of the caretakers.
There is plenty of room for your own garden; a gentle dog and/or
cat is fine. No smoking/drugs permitted anywhere on the property.
The utilities are basic and the electric/septic system will not
permit occupancy by more than two people. Experience with
gardening, farm animal care, tractor operation/upkeep, property
maintenance, chain saw/power tools is required. Being
trustworthy, responsible, neat and considerate is mandatory. This
is for a planned two to three year commitment or longer. Two
persons are needed, as some jobs require such and to provide
needed coverage. An extensive background check will be
undertaken. Please send a detailed letter describing your current
situation, your background and experience, skills and any
questions. A telephone interview will be held with qualified
applicants to further determine the best fit for all before
meeting and showing the property. A start date around July 1st,
earlier accommodation is possible. Please read the requirements
carefully and do not respond if you do not meet our requirements.
To apply, please email your resume and references to
caretakergazette@gmail.com and include the words 'Southern

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. I have a
two bedroom/one bathroom mobile home trailer available (the
trailer appliances run on propane) in exchange for help around
the ranch and building tiny houses on trailers. Also possible is
a live-in situation in my house for the right person. I have been
inundated with replies so when responding please describe what
abilities you have and work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot but will
consider anybody who brings a lot to the table so to speak. Room
for horses over three acres already fenced for the caretaker.
There is also a very rustic cabin and plenty of trailer space
available. Looking for somebody with experience with horses or
people with carpentry/handyman skills and business management. A
MacGyver type of person would be a plus. Must be a self-starter
and it would be great if you have a lot of your own tools. A
great deal of common sense is essential for living on a ranch and
I can't stress that enough. There are two trout streams on the
property and plenty of places to garden. Unfortunately there is
no 420 growing here. An apple orchard over one hundred sixty
years old is still bearing sixteen different varieties of apples.
There are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries to be
harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half fallen
down, as it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi remote, located
five miles to the closest neighbor, but only fifteen minutes on
good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores and
schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch is in
generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity! We get quite a bit of snow
in the winter so a 4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible
job opportunities with the right people but nothing going on at
the present moment. I need motivated people who want to help get
the business going again and expand to build tiny houses on
trailers. I have enough lumber cut and dried to build 10. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. Would like to find somebody interested in helping expand
my lumber, cabinets and furniture sales. Also interested in
turning the ranch into an equestrian campground and give guided
horseback riding on the property and the adjacent thousands of
acres of US forest land. I do have other caretakers so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

to start their own farm, thus we are looking for two adults who
are responsible, conscientious, trustworthy, energetic and who
meet our requirements, to take their place, to live on-site,
full-time, in a picturesque, rustic, quiet, small cabin that is
on a 100-acre beautiful property with a 230-year-old historic
farmhouse, barns, and other outbuildings, in Windham County, VT.
The cabin is across a quiet dirt road from our home and is
offered in exchange for weekly chores which will include daily
animal care (currently sheep, chickens), vegetable/flower
gardening, light construction, pasture management, painting, land
clearing, property oversight and snow removal. The caretakers
must be competent at animal care, climbing ladders, cutting

not a B&B but we keep the place looking like one. Our current
caretakers have their own sheep, chickens, bees, a dairy cow, and
dog. We generally are happy for new caretakers to have similar
limited animals (the barn, pastures and property are perfect for
raising such animals). The work will involve about 20 hours/week,
including weekend work (mandatory) - some for pay and the rest in
exchange for the exclusive use of the cabin. We will also pay
your utilities and provide a shared laundry room, use of the
private trails/woods, sledding hills, pastures, tennis court,
pond and nearby lake. The property is two miles from a

insulated, has simple electricity, a Vermont Castings wood stove,
a sleeping loft accessed by a ladder, and a covered porch
overlooking a pond. There is no running water, kitchen or toilet
in the cabin. Available for the caretakers' use is a rustic "barn
house" that is across the dirt road from the cabin, which
contains a large camp kitchen, outdoor stone BBQ, bathroom with
shower, laundry room, and three-season outdoor hot water shower.
At times, the "barn house" is shared with other caretakers,
and/or our guests but primarily is for the use of the caretakers.
There is plenty of room for your own garden; a gentle dog and/or
cat is fine. No smoking/drugs permitted anywhere on the property.
The utilities are basic and the electric/septic system will not
permit occupancy by more than two people. Experience with
gardening, farm animal care, tractor operation/upkeep, property
maintenance, chain saw/power tools is required. Being
trustworthy, responsible, neat and considerate is mandatory. This
is for a planned two to three year commitment or longer. Two
persons are needed, as some jobs require such and to provide
needed coverage. An extensive background check will be
undertaken. Please send a detailed letter describing your current
situation, your background and experience, skills and any
questions. A telephone interview will be held with qualified
applicants to further determine the best fit for all before
meeting and showing the property. A start date around July 1st,
earlier accommodation is possible. Please read the requirements
carefully and do not respond if you do not meet our requirements.
To apply, please email your resume and references to
caretakergazette@gmail.com and include the words 'Southern
Vermont' in the subject line for screening.

residence is a comfortable frame house, all appliances including

CARIBBEAN 

HOUSESITTER NEEDED from 6/1/16 - 10/1/16 at Vieques, a beautiful,
unspoiled, Caribbean Island Paradise. Do you meditate, do yoga,
seek a quiet, serene place to inhabit for a few months? Are you
health oriented, free of drug and alcohol problems, and have a
peaceful Loving-Kindness life focus? If so... this housesit may
be for you. Being an experienced cat person/lover is essential,
as there are four cats to care for (one indoor/outdoor, and three
outdoor). This isn't a 'Party' house, and it's a non-smoking
abode as well. The housesitter will occupy a private 1st floor,
two bedroom apartment in a two family house that's right above
the waves. The beach is only 50 steps away, so hearing the gentle
surf is an amazing plus. This is a non-salaried position which
trades off staying in a little slice of 'Paradise' in return for
excellent cat care and basic gardening. Utilities, Satellite TV
and Wi-Fi are included. (There's also the possible use of a car.)
This is an excellent opportunity for a computer based business
person, a writer, an Artist, or someone who's looking to
disconnect for a while. Background checks will be conducted.
Please email: Letter, Bio, recent photos and three checkable
references to caretakergazette@gmail.com and include the words
'Vieques Housesit Assignment' in the subject line for screening.

alone' for long periods, so ideally needs a dog-sitter who either
doesn't work full-time or works from home. Morley is close to

farmland, lakes, and a spectacular sea coast. Our Farmstead is
totally organic and vegetarian and we have large gardens. Most of

position and free accommodation is provided during the volunteer
period. The volunteer commitment is generally 20 to 25 hours a
week except in the three winter months when it may drop to about
10 hours a week. We're not very formal but as you will be sharing
our home with our children occasionally when we stay at the
property, we do require a photocopy/scanned picture of a legal
Photo ID (driving license, state ID, or passport) to be supplied
before arrival as proof of identity. Accommodation maybe in the

HAWAII

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A COUPLE OR PAIR to share a farm caretaker
roll as part of our sustainable permaculture farm and retreat.
The caretaker roll is an opportunity to grow, learn and immerse
in an established farm and community. The exchange would be from
March 1st to September 30th or possibly longer for about 20 hours
a week per person. You will be on Sunday-Thursday or
Tuesday-Saturday for about four to five hours a day. The
situation includes rent, electric, and water and a share of food
from the farm as well as the potential to generate income from
farm sales. Some sales are already established and there is room
for more income generation for self-motivated, inspired
individuals. Ideally, this position would be filled with folks
who want to generate income off the farm and/or do paid
farm/construction work through existing connections we have which
could supplement their income. The farm is located on 7.5 acres,
on the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano with sweeping views of
Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau's City of Refuge on the Big Island of
Hawaii. We are a small community of people living on the land
creating a conscious model of food diversity, self-sufficiency
and holistic living. We have dozens of different types of trees
and plants growing that are integrated with our animals. Our
animals include poultry, ducks, rabbits, milking sheep and goats.
We also have over 150 Macadamia Nut trees. As a caretaker some of
your tasks will include feeding and watering animals, maintaining
the veggie gardens, mowing and weed-wacking and minor general
upkeep of the farm and community spaces. Because we have animals,
there are daily morning and afternoon activities that need to be
tended to. Morning and afternoon "Land Dance" is when the animals
are fed and watered, so the day is split, but afternoon timing
can be flexible. Housing is in one of our rustic 12x20 cabins
with plywood floor. There is a shared living room, an outside
heated shower as well as inside bathroom and kitchen facilities.
High speed Internet is available in the communal house space as
well. If this sounds like a good potential fit, we would love to
hear from you! Please write us with a resume or letter of
interest and experience as well as a photo doing something you
love. You can check out the farm at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and on
Facebook under XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Please email
