Melinda's furry clients.


Hi, I'm Melinda!

Hi! I'm Melinda, 22 years old and in my third year of studying Nursing. 

I love animals and have always grown up around pets. Unfortunately, since when I  moved to Wellington in 2015, I have been unable to have any pets in my flat. Back home in Dunedin, I have 2 dogs - a shitzu, and a labrodar X staffy. As well as 2 cats and a bird. 

I have experience looking after family friends cats while they were on holiday, I also looked after my sister's animals which included  4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 gallahs and an outside avairy, so I have alot of experience with animals.

If I wasn't living in a flat I would love to have a greyhound or dachshund as these are my favorite dogs! Although, I love all animals - big and small! I really enjoy spending time with animals and would love to look after, walk and care for other peoples pets. I also have a car and am happy to travel around Wellington to care for your pets. 

 Feel free to contact me to ask any questions.
