About Claire

My name is Claire Lin. I came to New Zealand in 2014 and started working on a dairy farm in Canterbury after graduating from Animal Science degree in my home country, Taiwan. I have a huge passion on animals in my whole life. I had dogs and hamsters at home.

After working on farm for three years, I decided to pursue my dream and started Veterinary degree at Massey University in 2018. During my degree, I still work on farm in weekends as I love to work with cows and calves. I also have experiences on farm sitting and house sitting during study break. The pets that I have looked after include dogs, cats, sheep, and rabbit.

I am also willing to look after other species of animals for the owners.

I am a tidy, mature, and caring person. As being a student, it is hard to have my own pet. Therefore, I am keen on housesitting during my study. Although my timetable is pretty full on during weekdays, I am able to stay in your place before 9am and after 5pm. I will look after both your house and pet well while you are away. As a vet student, I care about animals and will make sure your fluff babies are well. As an independent person, I will keep your house tidy and clean. The services that I can do while housesitting include walking your dog 30 minute- 1 hour daily, feeding your pets, playing and cuddling your fluff babies, oral or injection medication if needed.
