Now that you are retired, you will find yourself with more free time, especially during the day — when you can help out pet owners who work long hours.

Dog walkers make money by taking a few dogs for a stroll each day. And that habit of getting out for exercise and fresh air is good for you as well as the dogs.

You can also try pet-sitting, which gives you a chance to snuggle up with furry friends and make money doing it.

Websites such as Rover can help you find this type of work.
