About Sarah

Hi there!

I'm Sarah, avid animal lover living in Melbourne on a work and holiday visa from the United States. I have had years of experience pet sitting back in the United States, and have been pet sitting here in Melbourne for 1 year now. So far here in Australia I have looked after puppies, grown dogs, and cats. I have been a dog owner my whole life, so I can guarantee your pet is in very good hands.

While I love travelling, I have always been a loving dog owner myself (my family currently has two dogs- one beautiful golden retriever named Leah and one cuddly shih tzu named Gunner), and I am truly missing having my fur babies around! I am passionate about animal welfare for both domesticated animals and wildlife, and my dream is to one day work in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

I feel very comfortable caring for dogs of all sizes and breeds, as well as cats, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, and reptiles. I live in Fitzroy, and am available for walks, home visits, and extended home stays. My schedule is fairly flexible at the moment, so just inquire and most likely I can make it work. I look forward to hearing from you if you feel that I am a good fit, and am excited to meet your wonderful fur baby(ies)!

My dog Molly adored staying with Sarah and came home very happy after her couple of nights away.

Sarah was amazing! Extremely accommodating, easy going and friendly. Jackson had a great time and came home very tired and happy. Our favourite new sitter :) Thanks so much Sarah and see you again soon!
