Become a Holiday Carer

Can you help Moving Paws with Holiday Care Accommodation?

Moving Paws Inc is getting more enquiries from dog owners who would like to utilise our carers to look after their doggies when they go on holidays rather than place them in kennels.

This is a great way for Moving Paws to raise funds to assist with vet care of our Always and Forever Haven dogs.

It has benefits for those who are not able to foster care for a long period of time and for those that cannot have the commitment of a full time dog but get the enjoyment of having a pooch around the home to enjoy!

The best thing about holiday care accommodation is:

  • We are able to ascertain information about the dog before it is placed in care
  • You meet the dog/s and family before making a decision
  • The length of time you will have with the dog
  • Food is provided by their owners
  • Their bedding is provided

What is required from you:

  • Provide a safe and comfortable home away from home
  • Lots of cuddles
  • Regular walks
  • Breakfast and dinner
  • Make sure they don’t miss their parents too much
  • Send photos and updates to the family and your holiday care co-ordinator

    Additional requirements:
    Current National Police Certificate
    Landlord approval (if renting)
    Fully fenced and secured yard
    House and yard check
    Confident in handling dogs
    The support of everyone in your household
