About Melanie

Hi there! we are a family of 5 and we have been pet sitting for years; cats, dogs, sheep, pigs, horses, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, anything really.....We also have been fostering kittens and puppies

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 18, Jamie 16 and Mia 9 , who all enjoy interacting with animals. Also part of the family is BOSTON our male cat. . We are happy to offer your beloved pet a home away from 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. Get in touch with us 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 area travel charges may apply. We are also happy to look after your home, collect your mail and water your plants while you are away. References available.

Gritty is rarely separated from me and she was a bit like a clingy toddler but Melanie and family looked after her and made her so welcome she relaxed beautifully. I would highly recommended.

I am a first time user of Paw Shake. Melanie made it so easy to leave our pet with her family. The communication was fabulous and he clearly had a great time. in fact we were a little concerned he would not want to come home with all the attention he got. Thankyou.
