I should start off with an introduction, so... my name is Sarah! I'm a full-time student at the University of Newcastle, studying Law and Social Science.
I have a lifetime of experience in living with a range of different pets—mainly cats, dogs, rats/guinea pigs and, briefly, bunnies—and am able to advocate myself as a person that is able to care for and provide animals with the love they deserve.
My aim is to make sure those that love their pets get the trust and relief they deserve knowing that their pet is getting cared for and looked after when they might not be able to take on the full load themselves. I'm an animal enthusiast that absolutely loves making sure all animals are healthy, playing and happy.
My motivation for becoming involved in animals is due to the current vacancy of animals on my property (all moving on to better places!), especially because I've always been surrounded by animals growing up and I don't look to stop now—if there's one thing they deserve in return it's the happiness they often give us.
There are no restrictions apart from the pets needing to be vaccinated (for the safety of themselves and others). In regard to dog walking and all-around animal caring, I'm fine with interacting with an animal that may not be the best behaved, although I would appreciate a warning beforehand.
If there are any special considerations for the animal/s in question, I am happy to accomodate!
I am available all days, but the only requirement would be flexibility with the dates you need—I am casually employed (though working at night) and attending university on top of this, so I'm unable to be restricted to a specific time frame unless strictly negotiated beforehand. This schedule is to ensure that I can properly provide for and keep a close eye on any animals in my care while also accomodating my normal routine.
I can offer walks that range within the hour. I can change the intensity of these walks to suit the animal that accompanies me! We may stop at parks to rest and to relax if need be. Also, if the pet has a set route I am also happy to accomodate.
House Sitting & Visits (for all animals)
I am comfortable to visit the house and make sure that everything is okay. I can offer two visits a day, wherein I'll stay for roughly 30 minutes to observe how the animal/s are going and do anything that is needed. As much information as possible beforehand would be perfect and I'll do what I can to accomodate.
Sarah has looked after our pet really well. She’s communicated with us whilst we were away and followed requested routine.
We are so pleased with Sarah looking after JD and Sammy while we were away...Sarah sent us daily photos and kept us up to date with how our boys were doing. Sarah made sure they were fed, had fresh water and cleaned up after them daily..we had just moved to this area so it was the first time using Sarah..we are so pleased and will not hesitate using Sarah again when needed..Great pet sitter 😊
