About Melani

Hiya! My name is Melani and I am currently 23 and studying at James Cook University. I am originally from Texas, but I have traveled all over the world training in and practicing animal medicine and care.

I am a pet sitter back in the states, and have been for eight years (I've attached a few of my reviews in my photos section). I take care of 12 dogs in my family's home, so you could say I am versed in canine care!

I also own two cats and have owned various reptiles in my life so nothing is out of my comfort zone! I am animal CPR and handling certified, and I have approximately 300 hours of vet-tech service under my belt. I can administer shots as needed as well as oral medications too for the more special-needs pets! I can promise you the utmost professionalism and individualistic care when I am sitting for your furry family member.

I offer house sitting, drop ins that range from 30min to an hour, and on occasion boarding! Under my care your furry friend will have play time, walks depending on their ability and weather, and lots of love. If there is any need for baths I can do that too!

Melani took excellent care of our staffy Onyx who has separation anxiety. Couldn’t be happier with the level of care. Thanks Melani.
