About Holly

I'm a 25 year old living in Central Auckland, looking for a puppy fix. Renting in the city has lead me to a life of cat ownership (which I love!), but I feel everyone needs a little puppy love in their life. In fact, I feel everyone needs all kinds of animal love in their life.

Experience with animals:

I have been working with animals since 2012 - both as a paid job and voluntarily. I have two and half years experience working at a pet store, and a further two years experience as a foster parent and volunteer at the SPCA. I have handled dogs, cats, rabbits, rats/mice, birds, and exotic animals, including the routine care of reptiles and tropical fish. I have a cat and three guinea pigs of my own who are very spoiled!

My goal in life is to have my own miniature zoo - but until then, I aim to spend as much time with animals as I can while making their fur parents' lives as easy as possible!

Services I am happy to offer are:

Regular dog walking (weekday evenings & weekends, weekday mornings can be negotiated)

Home drop-ins (feeding, basic grooming (if necessary), litter tray/enclosure maintenance)

Giving medication (including de-fleaing, de-worming, etc)

Long-term drop-ins and/or walking (for those away on long trips)

Overnight/weekend stays at pet's own home

Animals I am happy to work with:

Dogs

Cats

Small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats etc)

Birds (aviary and hand-raised)

Exotic animals (reptiles (such as bearded dragons, turtles, and geckos), chinchillas and aquariums)

I can't wait to meet your furry friends, build some great relationships and make awesome memories!

Holly was absolutely great. She treated our pets as well as we would have and respected our routines. Our doggos loved their time with Holly. Holly communicates frequently and also kept our house in great order.

Holly did an amazing job looking after our two cats. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be booking again!
