About Melanie

Hi there! We have been pet sitting for years; cats, dogs, sheep, pigs, horses, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, anything really.....We also have been fostering for the SPCA for many years. All members of our family really enjoy animals. Having our own and looking after other peoples furry friends has really enriched out lifes. We have got a beautiful house with a fully fenced back yard. We have got 3 children, Josiah 14, Jamie 12, and Mia 5, who all enjoy interacting with animals. Also part of the family is Jemima, our female cat, she has raised dozends of foster kittens for the SPCA. And there is Chloe, our rescue German Shepherd , she is 2 years old and absolutely loves all other dogs. We are happy to offer your beloved pet a home or come and look after it at your place while you can't. We will keep your routines going and love them as if they were our own. Drop us a line and we can discuss what works best for you. For us to accept an animal to stay at our place a meet and greet is essential, to make sure it is a good fit. If I travel to your place and it is out of my arrea travel charges may apply. We are also happy to look after your home, collect your mail and water your plants while you are away.

Wonderful care for our semi-retired hen Chrissy. Great peace of mind while we’re away.

Wonderful care for our rescue hen. Took the time and effort to visit before we went away to meet our hen and understand her little quirks. Such a relief to go away knowing our little feathered friend was in good hands.
