The mere thought of having to leave your beloved furry friend with another person can be daunting but Minderz has you covered! This innovative new app works to connect pet owners with authenticated pet sitters close and gives owners the choice to book them for a house sitting, pet boarding, drop-in visit, or dog walking gig when and where they need it — brilliant! With this app you’ll never have to stress about leaving your fur baby ever again.

The pet sitting app works in a similar way to Uber, connecting those searching for pet-sitters to verified Minderz sitters in the area. To work with Minderz, all sitters are required to go through a validation process which includes having a passion for animals and previous experiences both pet-setting and volunteering at an animal shelter. This ensures that pet owners can have peace of mind that the person looking after their beloved fur baby when they’re away will know exactly how to love and care for their pet.

MinderzThe app offers users a variety of services, including house sitting, pet boarding, drop-in visits and dog walking and prices range from as little as R99 to R189, depending on the service booked. The current system requires users to submit a form indicating your pet’s needs and the Minderz team will provide you with a list of capable candidates. Pet owners are also able to engage with sitters before making a final choice on who they would like to look after their home and pet.

Based in Cape Town, Minderz has 600 pet-sitters on hand with smaller groups in Joburg and Durban. With an increase in demand, the website is planning to relaunch soon, making it more efficient and user-friendly.
