With Christmas only 8 weeks away, Pet Cloud founder Deborah Morrison is on a mission. She wants every pet owner in Australia to know how to conduct a responsible property check and what questions to ask potential pet sitters.

“The last thing Pet Owners want is a call while they're in Bali saying their pet has escaped, or are at the Emergency Vet,” said Ms Morrison.

Running a national pet sitting website with the help of RSPCA Qld for the last 3 years Pet Cloud has taken what was once a “cottage industry” and given it framework to decrease the risk of harm or loss to pets in care.

Early on PetCloud began discussions with RSPCA Qld staff such as Inspectors, Trainers, Vet Nurses, and Foster Carers to work through the questions asked of both Pet Sitters & Pet Owners to establish the safest Pet Sitting website in Australia.

 “PetCloud is very honoured and proud to be a partner and supporter of Australia’s most renowned animal charity, the RSPCA across most states in Australia. Every time you make a booking on PetCloud, 20% of all our profits goes back to supporting the work they do.” says Morrison.

In the keenness to embrace the sharing economy, PetCloud Founder Morrison says people need to research the safety and liability these companies take on.  There are many safety aspects that set PetCloud apart in the market such as:

●       Optional Police Background Checks of their Sitters

●       Animal Cruelty Register cross-checks

●       Reviews by Past Members

●       RSPCA Qld Approved Backyard Checklist to help Owners and Sitters understand standards of care

●       Pet Sitter Support Manuals and Video

●       RSPCA Qld Accredited Animal Care Courses

PetCloud has the largest number of Sitters in Australia; over 18,000 nationwide and has grown rapidly to be Australia’s most trusted and transparent pet sitting website with the RSPCA’s National Call Centre running their Customer Support Team.
