  • Description


    I am an anthropologist from Australia living here in Siem Reap and have rescued a number of cats and dogs from the street. On occasion I need to go away and need somebody to come and take care of all of my lovely cats and dogs while I'm gone!

    It is a great opportunity to stay in Siem Reap and explore all of the amazing temples around! Also, for animal lovers, a great opportunity to spend some time and help out with lots of beautiful cats and dogs who have all come from bad situations.

  • Help


    Come and look after my 37 lovely cats and 10 dogs here in Siem Reap while I travel! All have been rescued from the street and are absolutely lovely! There is a daily cleaner who comes so you will just need to feed them, help keep the place clean, help clean their toilet, make sure that they're safe and give them lots of love!

    Everyone is super sweet and friendly and all have been fully vaccinated. I do have one dog who is quite nervous around people she doesn't know however should be no problem. As there are quite a lot of animals, this position would really only be suited for real animal lovers who really enjoy being around a lot of animals, who also stay inside the house. You also must be comfortable with managing a difficult situation should it arise, be willing to intervene in a problem and be willing to take an animal to a vet should they need to go. It's very important that you are comfortable with dogs. All of my dogs are lovely but they are full of energy and love to jump around and play.
