Going on vacation? There are budget-friendly ways to make sure your pet is well taken care of while you relax. Here are two easy tips to start.

Boarding facilities will cost you between $22 and $55 per day per pet, but you may be able to save a little bit on that, depending on your timing. For cheaper rates, it's best to drop off your pet during business hours and during the week.

If you don't want to take your animals out of their cozy home, a house sitter might just be the best option. Plus, you get more bang for your buck. Not only will house sitters make sure your furry loved one is okay, they'll also look over your garden, home and get the mail, too!

Try out a convenient website that matches travelers who need home and pet care with travelers who need a place to stay.

Having a dog or cat doesn't have to be that expensive. With a little bit of creativity, you can have a pet, go on trips and save your cash.
