Hi, I'm Sarah!

My name is Sarah. I'm living in Hillsborough with my dog, 3 cats and 2 flatmates. I am close to many parks including Onehunga Reserve/Big King/Waikohwai Park. PLEASE NOTE: I am currently NOT accepting any new doggy day care/overnight (dog boarding/minding). I have just finished studying Diploma of Vet Nursing/Animal Management (including work experience at SPCA & my local vet clinic), and I am certified in Pet First Aid. I also have been volunteering at SPCA for the past 5 years mostly with sick cats and canine/puppy area. As passionate pet owner myself, I know how important it is to find the right person to take care of your pets. They mean the world to you, they’re your best friend and they’re irreplaceable! I feel the same way with all the animal's in our house and all that visit/stay, they are part of the family and you want them to feel safe and loved with the person who will look after them. I have spent all my life surrounded my pets after growing up on a farm and now owning 1 dog and 3 cats of which are all rescue pets! I have regular dog walking/minding clients and do drive to many dog safe parks around local suburbs to Hillsborough. It’s with this in mind, that I’ve established a service you can count on and reputation for being one of the most caring and trusted pet minding services available. I am devoted to compassionate pet care and dedicated to outstanding customer service. I have vast experience in looking after sick/injured pets including giving medication and post surgery pets. I spend quality time cuddling, brushing, playing and talking to your pets. Collect mail, water plants, take bins out. Clean litter boxes, cages, bedding. Take to your pet to vet clinic if required. I am more than happy to work with you on any special requests or needs you may have. Give medication when required I am also available for short visits to administer medication, toilet break, quick walks. (Available only in surrounding suburbs of Hillsborough) **PLEASE NOTE** - My services I usually accept bookings within 10km (20 mins) radius of my home.
