GoingAway was created by me Leanne Burger in 2005, and it has been in East London since 2010, and growing each year more and more.
GoingAway is a professional pet and house sitting service. Our database of client is over 400 in East London. We have currently 19 sitters freelancing for GoingAway. I have personally hand pick the sitters, and all reference checks are done including a police clearance must be done on them before they can even join. I am very strict but that is why we have such a good reputation in East London. I teach each one of them my skills the do’s and don’ts for house and pet sitting, as I have been doing it now for 11 years and have learnt so much in this time, I have mastered the skill. The sitters do sign contacts with me and a two-page list of rules they must abide to at all times. I set very high standards for GoingAway and my Team. GoingAway uses only the best pet and house sitters. (see our Sitters page)
I have a big love for animals as I was taught by Kevin Richardson (the lion whisperer) in 2000 where I looked after lions, cheetah and many more cats and other creatures for 5 years of my life, I t was the best years for me as I was always an animal person but this just added to my huge love for them tame and wild. So even if you have a lion, I can look after that too! House and pet sitting is quite a new thing in SA, but people are warming up to it, and in the last 7 years I have personally seen the huge growth in the type of business in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
I believe that our pets and home must be cared for while we are away for anything being a holiday, an emergency or for business. We will care for your pets and make sure they are fed and have company they need to make sure the don’t pine for their owners, and for the home, we are a security so the thieves can see there is activity and not attempt to break in.
Don’t worry, let us take care of it for you, so you do not have to panic at the last minute!
We know how much you care about your extended family. Ensuring that they feel comfortable and safe is important to me; which is why we are happy to attend to them in their own homes. A familiar place to them and a convenience to the customer.
We can feed, walk and do all the things that your pets are used to. We can also be a temporary resident in your home if required, depending on the particular pet or situation. We understand that leaving the responsibility of caring for your beloved pet with us is based on trust, respect and a mutual care for the wellbeing of your pet.
That is why GoingAway is happy to meet with you beforehand so that we can get to know a bit about each other and the sitter can get to know your pet. You can be assured with our professional service which is personal to you, helping to provide peace of mind.
We will accommodate your needs with as little as a days’ notice.
We cover most of East London and surrounding Area. Please see below but a hand full of +/- 60 references we have gotten over the last few years.
We are looking forward to meeting you and your special pet soon :)
