    I'm open to caring for anything but reptiles or rats.

    Great idea!

    I know.

    When you do get started, set up a database of owner information, animal information, vet information, food, etc. Anything you can think of about each pet, so that you can easily reference it the next time they call!
    Great idea!


    Thanks everyone for the input & suggestions, I really appreciate it!

    My Grandma use to do this and got lots of business. Should start off with friends and that first and get people to recommend you, that is what she did and was doing it every week. Unfortunately can't ask her what she charged, but should check around at places who do this and find out what they charge.
