Pet Sitting Network

The Pet Sitting Network is a Facebook group for people to trade pet-sitting services, an economical, comfortable alternative to boarding your pet in a kennel.

We are a Busan-based group, with members throughout Korea. You don't need a pet to participate, and there is no obligation to pet-sit if you join the group. We have occasional dog-walks and social events, too!

Fish Out of Water

We never set out to own animals in Korea, but they seem to find us. First we rescued hamsters from a snake. Then we rescued a dog from some people who didn't really know how to care for him, followed by another dog from some traffic - although we managed to find that one's owner. And now, it's fish.

Mad Dogs and Englishmen

After a few minutes, I began to think that the number of car horns sounding outside, far below on the highway, was unusually high. A few minutes after that, I finally decided to get up from my desk and see what all the commotion was about. I expected there had been a breakdown or accident, instead I saw what I believed to be a cat, meandering around the six lanes as though it hadn't a care in the world. Cars were doing emergency stops, weaving around it at the last minute, and stopping dead as the animal chose to remain in front of their halted vehicles. Horns were being sounded, to no avail.

Pet Carrier to buy or borrow

 

Hey!  I need to take my cat to the vet to get neutered ASAP.  I'm looking to buy or even rent a carrier.  He's a full grown cat, so it would need to accommodate that size--basically not a really small one.  Just trying to not have to buy one.  OR if anyone has any suggestions where a good/cheap place to buy one would be.  Thanks!

 

 

Why?!?!?! - Pet Adoption

Why is it that people are on this website trying to find a loving home for their pet? I guess a better question is WHY do people on a 1 year contract feel the need to get a pet they can only keep for a short while? Because they just had to have that cute, cuddly kitten? Because they didn't want to be lonely? Why?!?! It seems so utterly stupid that now you have to give your cat or dog away.
