I'm looking for a short-term house/petsitter for a home in Northern New Mexico, from Aug 13, 2014 until Aug 16 or 17, 2014. I realize this is short notice, and would really appreciate your help!

The main responsibility will be feeding and caring for 2 cats, 4 dogs, and 2 horses. This requires someone to be around every morning and every evening to feed. Otherwise, the animals are very low maintenance - they don't need to be walked or anything, since the dogs and cats all have free range.

The house is in Ojo Sarco, on 6 rural acres, in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. There are miles of hiking trails right from the back door. The house has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, satellite internet, washer/dryer, and a fully functional kitchen. In all, it is very comfortable and has a lot of character. It is located about 40 minutes from Taos, 60 minutes from Santa Fe, and 10 minutes from Dixon - a small, farming town with a great coop market, cool library, and great little locally owned restaurant. There are also 2 wineries and a brew pub there.

The main thing to consider about this gig is that you need to be physically fit enough to feed the horses and walk uneven terrain at 7100 feet above sea level. With the main purpose being for someone to be able to care for the animals, we prefer people who wouldn't be bringing their own pets - it's just too complicated…Also, a vehicle is required - the house is 3 miles up a dirt road, so 4x4 is preferable if it rains, but we have an old truck you can use if you only have two-wheel-drive.

Please let me know if you'd like to spend a few days in the hills with our animals!
