My name is Karen McGrory and I am 37 years old. I love animals and enjoy looking after them.
I currently do a lot of house sitting and many of the owners have animals that require looking after, which I absolutely love. This is what has enspired me to sign up.
I currently work at a pharmacy in town as a dispensary technician, and am gaining my qualifications for this position as I work. I grew up in Gisborne and have spent a lot of time living in London where I was fortunate to mostly live in flats with pet cats or dogs. A loss in the family has brought me back home. My family had a small 5 acre farm where I gained experience and confidence with sheep and dogs. I also have friends who often rely on me to look after their pets. I am happy to offer references if required.
Services I am happy to provide will include walking dogs, checking in on and feeding pets, and short or long term stays.
I have looked after dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, sheep and a variety of birds including canaries, cockatiels, chickens and ducks. My main loves are dogs and cats.
I look forward to meeting your pets and am excited to start helping out! Please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Karen was amazing! I felt so comfortable knowing she was in our house looking after babies! She was very communicative and kept me updated with cute pics. Would 100% recommend Karen to anyone - she’ll be our first port of call next time for sure!
Karen was an awesome cat sitter for my shy wee diabetic cat Madeline, she came twice a day while away and gave her little kitty insulin shots which she had never done prior to this! She came over two times before we went away to meet Madeline and learn how to give her injections. While away she kept in contact with updates so we wouldn’t worry about Madeline. Highly recommend :D
Thank you so much for looking after Madeline! It made a stressful time a lot easier for me and I super appreciated it!
