I admire you a great deal for loving your parents enough to help

out and for showing such maturity. As long as you have your parents

permission and perhaps a teacher, minister/pastor, or relatives

(adults) give you good recommendations then house sitting for

people or looking after their pets while they are on holiday and it

pays pretty good money. In Canada you can make $25/day plus food.

This is a big responsibility, but one you can do if you put your

mind to it. You could stay in the house after school, feed pets,

take in the mail and newspapers, then leave a couple of lights on

at night, the radio or TV or set the alarm and have your parents

pick you up to sleep at home. You can get fairly good money just

walking dogs for people who are at work all day. Try to pick the

smaller dogs as some larger dogs can be hard to handle. This too is

a very responsible job as you have to be safety conscious at all

times. If you live right in a city you can go to different

veterinary clinics and discuss your problem (to a degree) and clean

out cages and sweep floors. You might even luck out at work for a

dog groomer preping the dogs/cats or cleaning out cages and

sweeping floors. Depending on your age you could even work at a

burger place or coffee bar (as long as no alcohol is served). Good

luck! Working in stalls at race tracks or farms in another job.
