We are a working couple in our 50s who love animals, especially dogs, cats, horses, goats, sheep and so many more. We also love to travel. I was a geographer and now am a Middle School History teacher. I also had a professional organizing businesses at one time. I've taught at my local school for 19 years. Being an actively-employed teacher means I have been background checked and fingerprinted and it means I have no criminal history. My husband is a master certified Ford automotive technician. We've been married for 32 years. I've traveled extensively...mostly as a backpacker but I have many more places to see.  We are extremely responsible and moral people. We are looking for a way to travel a bit more inexpensively.  I happened upon this .  It intrigued us. We figured we'd try pairing our love of animals with house-sitting.  My husband is not a professional handy-man but he is a mechanic so he is very good around the house which I assume would be a plus in the event any house systems went awry. We are non-smokers and only occasionally have a glass of wine or a beer. We take pride in caring for our own home in Florida and we would be sure to care for yours if it were under our supervision.  As a teacher I get a week off in November, about three weeks off in December, a week off in late March and June through the end of July off (summer vacation in Florida schools). If you can travel during those times, maybe we can help care for your home and pets. Thank you for your consideration.
