There are many ways to earn extra money on the side these days — like renting out your house or vehicle. There are also ways to make extra cash with a more traditional business model, like providing a service.

Critter care is one service that is always in demand. Whether it’s monitoring a fish tank, feeding a cat or getting a dog out for some exercise, pet owners all need help at some point. And they want to be able to travel without worrying about their furry, feathered or scaled friends.

Following are key steps to getting started.
