Auntie Jo’s was founded by Jo McEwen in August 2015.
A life long love of animals led Jo to successfully co-found and run a non profit large animal rescue for more than 13 years. After years of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming hundreds of animals in need Jo decided to wrap up her time in the professional animal welfare world and turn her attention to a different avenue of animal welfare – In Home Pet Sitting.
Providing in home care to furry clients while their parents work or go on vacation.
Started on a shoe string budget (just like the rescue way back in 2004) Auntie Jo’s has grown to be a leader in pet care in the community. Auntie Jo’s is now offering franchise opportunities to others who may be looking to start their own pet sitting business but still have support from knowledgeable resources and animal experts.
Jo and her team pride themselves on the decades of solid, mature, loving animal care experience they bring to the table.
We can’t condense 13+ years of animal experience into a short blurb for the internet, but want to provide a brief glimpse into the history and background of the founder of the franchise opportunity you are considering.
Better Than Home Based!
Franchising with Auntie Jo’s is better than home based (in our humble opinions). Why, is that? You might be thinking…let me count the ways…

- Avoid the pitfalls that the vast majority of start-ups face.
- Someone “has your back” for those difficult decisions.
- Solid training program to set you up for success.
