About Peta

My name is Peta Smith, I'm 24 and live at home with my mum, her partner, and my sister.

I recently finished study at TAFE (November 2017). I'm currently unemployed but looking for work so your pet will get lots of attention if they stay here. In the photos, you will see our backyard, the open plan living room and kitchen, and my room where your pet will most likely stay. I'm afraid I couldn't provide photos of me with our animals but that is cause I'm on the other side of the camera.

My Motivation: I love animals (like everyone else on this site, I'd imagine). My home is very open to animals, my mum's partner has 1 cats here (moggie) and a dog (Shep x) from the RSPCA my mum also owns 2 cats (Bengals), my sister has a dog (kelpie x), and I have a dog (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel).

We also have a large and a medium fish tank.

I want to be able to provide care for your animal(s) that will give you peace of mind and assure you that they will be loved and have the care that they deserve.

My Home: We have a large backyard that will provide ample space for your pet to be able to run around in, we have an open plan kitchen and living room so there is space in the main house, and of an evening you pet will be out in my room which is separate from the main house and measures to roughly 6m long and 4m wide, my room also has a large pet door so they can come and go as they please but can be locked if you want your pet to stay inside of an evening.

My Experience: Most of my experience comes from being a pet owner, I have also looked after family members animals; I've looked after my aunts 3 cats when they went on their honeymoon, one of the cats has epilepsy so I was administering tablets in his food morning and night. For this, I stayed at her house. I've looked after my uncle's cat so I go there in the evenings to feed him, give him some love and attention, and change the kitty litter and water. I've also looked after a turtle when my other uncle and his family have gone on holiday

My Services: I offer pet care in my own home or from the comfort of your own home, and I do offer dog walking if the weather permits it. And please note for your own peace of mind that my sister holds a certificate 3 in animal studies and worked at boarding kennel for 3years; while you won't be paying for her services she may be able to help me if there are areas in which I lack, and if I'm worried about your animals health I'll contact my local vet for advice as well as let you know what is happening, and any trips to the vet will come at an additional cost but hopefully that won't happen

My Requirements From You: If I'm looking after your animal in my home then they need to be able to get along with other animals, this is a must.If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Peta was a delight to deal with. She was polite, conscientious and reliable and cared for our pets and our home as if they were her own. We will definitely be calling on Peta again when the need arises.

Peta is an absolute Gem. She looked after our two Senior Citizen furry family and our home for 3 nights.

We got back to happy happy doggies and a welcoming home. Thanks so much Peta, your a super star and we would love you to look after our pups again in the future.
