About Lisa

Hi! My name is Lisa.

I finished my veterinary degree at the University of Melbourne in 2015, so naturally I adore all creatures great and small. After deciding that vet clinic life wasn’t for me, I joined Pawshake so I could keep working with animals. I have been on this platform since late 2016 and in that time I have met plenty of wonderful clients and pets. I am available every day of the week to look after your companion/s while you are busy at work or away on holiday.

The services I provide are:

  • Dog walking for up to an hour.
  • Home visits for up to an hour. I will check in on, feed and play with your pet.
  • House sitting overnight. I will feed and play with your pet. Dogs can be taken on a daily walk. Also happy with minor tasks around the house such as bringing in the mail and watering your plants.
Pets on medication or with special needs can be catered for.

I am experienced in the handling and husbandry of a range of species, having worked on numerous farms, shelters, sanctuaries and veterinary clinics. I am especially fond of cats but I am just as happy working with dogs and more unusual pets. Growing up I owned a dog, several cats and several birds. I have been a foster carer for cats and kittens with a rescue organisation for a number of years. You can meet some of my past fosters (who are now adopted) in my photos!

If you are after gentle, loving and knowledgeable care then don't hesitate to contact me.

I am always happy to meet new clients and pets to discuss their requirements.

Lisa looked after my very shy cat Fifi for a day over Christmas. Lisa was flexible, professional and friendly and I felt Fifi was in excellent hands. Lisa texted me an update on Christmas Day and even cleaned up a hairball, for which I could not have been more grateful!

I'll definitely request Lisa again next time I'm away. Thank you!

Lisa was amazing!

We had issues with the fob to access the building and she did everything in her power to get the issue resolved and spend time with my wonderful cat. Knowing she was the one looking after my cat allowed me to enjoy my vacation without too much stress about the issues!
