Kia ora pawshake whānau,
I'm Shontelle, I live in the Sunderland precinct of Hobsonville Point. I have dogs of my own and love each of them for their own unique individual personalities and characteristics. I have experience with rescue pets, elderly, anxious, sick, and those who are just content with you purely being in the room.
I have worked on behalf of the SPCA for 10+ years and continue to do so. My work makes me naturally passionate about the welfare of all animals. This would be reflected in the way in which I would care for your pet/s.
Outside of Hobsonville Point/Hobsonville:
I am no longer taking on any new clients outside of the Hobsonville area.
Your Pets Visit:
Upon visiting your pet/s (limit of 4 per household) I will send you a pic/text each and every time as part of your booking.
Morning visits: Between 5:30am - 6:30am.
Afternoon visits: Between 5:30pm - 6:30pm (Tues 4:30pm - 5:30pm)
During my 15-30min visit, I will help with small tasks such as:
*Cuddles, belly rubs, butt scratches and playtime with your pet
*Putting food out/in
*Administering any medications they may be requiring
*Letting them out for a toilet break
*Putting the telly or aircon on/off for them
*Cleaning cages/trays and accidents or mostly anything else within reason for your pet.
These will be prioritised for those "first come first serve bases" meaning confirmed & paid. Please do this as soon as you can to avoid dissapointment as I will only be allowing for 3 whanau a day.
Yes, I am available over the Christmas & NY period.
I look forward to meeting you and your pet/s and providing you both with some comfort and peace of mind.
I'm very-very happy with Shontelle looking after our beloved cat while we've been away for a week. Never came across with a better cat sitter before. Our cat is very shy and very cautions to strangers but she won his trust pretty quickly, absolutely spot on communications with photos and videos so we were sure our cat is happy and we could relax and enjoy our trip. Shontelle does spend her time with your pet to make sure he gets his daily lot of pets and cuddles. And she is just simply an absolutely lovely person and a reliable pet sitter. Will definitely go back to her when I need a cat sitter again. Thank you Shontelle so much, you’re a star!! :0)
Shontelle is everything you could want and more when trusting someone to look after your fur babies. I cannot speak highly enough of her and wouldn’t hesitate to book her again.
No qualification but a heap of lived experience and common sense. I was raised on our family farm in the Bay of Islands so am very confident around such animals as pigs, goats, sheep, horses, chicken, ducks, cows and all breeds of dogs. Any animals im not familiar with Im happy to discuss and meet with you both to ensure suitabilty for both me and them.
