Press release   •   May 29, 2014 13:43 BST today launched an official charity partnership with the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The RSPCA is expanding into the fast growing digital pet marketplace to further increase its followers.  Partnering with the leading pet sitting website, will give them access to over 330,000 pet owners and pet loving sitters a month.

TrustedHousesitters is the world’s largest house & pet sitting website, having facilitated over half a million house sitting nights. Enabling pet owners to find trusted sitters happy to care for their homes and pets when they’re next going away, for free. This win-win arrangement offers owners peace of mind alongside huge pet care savings, while sitters get to enjoy the company of pets and a free retreat worldwide. It’s an altruistic way to both find, and be, a pet sitter.

“The RSPCA is delighted that has chosen to support us. Using their great service will mean that your pets can be cared for in their own home while you are enjoying your holiday and it might save you money too”, says Lynsay Josephy – RSPCA Corporate Account Manager

“The money that raise will go towards ensuring that we can continue our vital work in caring for animals and eliminating cruelty and neglect.

The ethos behind TrustedHousesitters is to enable all pets to remain at home. Veterinary experts agree, pets left in their own environment and kept to their regular routine are much happier and adapt much easier to a new carer than they do to a new location.  

We’re really proud to be supporting  the RSPCA and to help them reach our growing audience. Our members love pets and to be given the opportunity to support the RSPCA’s animal welfare work is close to all our hearts.” Andy Peck, CEO. 

The RSPCA established in 1824 is a charity which looks to prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of all animals.  As well as a direct contribution from TrustedHousesitters to launch the charity partnership, members will now be able to easily donate on check-out.
