Want a job driving animals? There are a couple of online platforms that will help you advertise your availability to, say, transport somebody’s German Shepherd across country. Or, pick up pets for doggie daycare and/or an overnight stay.

The first and best site for anything animal-related is Rover. Rover allows freelancers to list their services as dog-walkers, pet-sitters, groomers, and pet transport. You set up a profile, stating your rates and services. The site charges a 20-25% fee for doing your marketing and collecting payment on your behalf. You can find out more about Rover here.

Citizen Shipper

Citizen Shipper is designed for long-haul truckers who have room to make additional on-the-way deliveries and for driving animals. It’s used by people who buy a pet from an out-of-state breeder or move across country and need someone to drive their pets to the new home.You negotiate directly with people looking to ship things, determining whether you’ve got the interest, room, and whether they’re willing to pay reasonable freight. You also collect payment directly from the shipment recipient. Find out more about Citizen Shipper here.
