It’s a great way for dog lovers to raise money for Austin Pets Alive!, save dogs’ lives, and make some additional money for yourself

Here’s how it works:

Sign up to become a dog sitter on

As a Rover Dog sitter, you get to set your own rates and schedule and choose the dog(s) you want to care for. You can also choose to care for a dog in your own residence, or do some dog sitting at another’s home. Dog sitters on typically make $25 to $50 per dog, per day, and no experience or licensing is necessary — just a love of dogs!

Supporters of Austin Pets Alive! can choose to donate a portion of their profits directly to APA! When you do this, your Rover profile will display an “Austin Pets Alive! Donor” badge, so that others can see that you are committed to supporting APA! and help make life worth barking about for our canine friends (note: will deduct your donation from your sitter profits and send it directly to Austin Pets Alive!).
