Melissa's furry clients.

Hi, I'm Melissa!

Hi there, my name is Melissa!

I am currently studying my second year with Southern Institute of technology. I have experience and knowledge in animal care due to completing the NZ Certificate in Animal Care Science.

I am available to look after your pets with great care and give medication when needed. I live in Tuakau, on a farm-like property that is close to the shops and a 20minute drive from Port Waikato Beach.

I have one ChihuahuaX and a male tabby cat. Due to having a small dog and a cat on the property, your pet will need to be well trained around others. Although, I do offer puppy/kitten care which can be arranged via the Pawshake booking process. I do daily visits and over night stays when needed.
I also offer fish and bird care.

You can be assured that your pets will be taken care of and given the appropriate amount of attention with me looking after them.

Warm Regards,
