About Virginia

Hi, a little bit about myself. My name is Virginia also known as Ginny. I am a 20 year old born and raised in Christchurch.

I believe that I can be trusted with your animals and will provide the best care and communication that I can do. I have three cats at home called Macca, Cosmo, and Pumpkin and one dog called McKenna.

I have always had a passion for caring and looking after animals since a young age, I am comfortable around all sizes and breeds of dogs, I have always had cats around at home so I am fully comfortable around all cats, I have had experience with most dog breeds and different levels of reaction and am comfortable with looking after any breed. I have some experience with Horses, Mice, Birds, Rabbits, Chickens.

Since 2019 I have been volunteering at SPCA which I have enjoyed being able to help sick animals and watch them getting better or just simpleng taking the dogs out for the day. I have also studied Vet Nursing so I am confident in giving your pets any medication that is needed to help them, well studying Vet Nursing and volunteering at SPCA I have learnt a lot especially on different signs of reactive animals and scared animals. I also am working at a dog day care.

I have been house sitting for about 3 years now and would like to say that I am confident with all animals, and have enjoyed all the animals i have been able to look after the past few years and hope to be able to house sit and look after a lot more animals.

I am happy to help out as well if your pet needs to be taken to groomers or vet when you are away.

Please feel free to message me any questions and queries, I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

Virginia

Virginia is great. We have used her services several times and always been very happy with how our cat Jesse has been looked after. Highly recommend.

Virginia is great, I’d rather prefer a petsitter that communicates more with me & walk my dog as discussed.
