About Us

An Experienced Choice

Lisa Clark established Town & Country Homesit in 2000 and it was the first service of its kind in Canterbury.  After 4 years in London based in Recruitment and Human Resources for investment banks, Lisa missed New Zealand and her pets!  Having grown up on a high country farm in the Mackenzie district, her love of animals and people made starting this business a natural choice.  Lisa’s experience in this business sees her as the pioneer of homesitting in the region and she has hundreds of loyal clients, homesitters and of course, happy pets!

Lisa is married to Hamish and lives in Harewood with her 2 children, and Kiko & Sammy… their precious British Shorthairs!

Real Peace of Mind

The original South Island pet sitting agency established in 2000, Town & Country Homesit offers an extensive house sitting and pet minding service for both residential city properties, rural lifestyle blocks and larger farms, providing security for your home and allowing your pets to remain in a secure and familiar environment.

We meet you in your home to thoroughly assess your needs, then choose a compatible sitter, who will also visit you prior to the homesit so you can have peace of mind that your home and pets are in safe hands.

We normally do a minimum of 3 nights.
