About Renate

I have been an avid animal lover since childhood, growing up with an extensive menagerie including cats, guinea pigs, budgies, canaries, a galah, fish, a turtle, mice and rats. I therefore have experience in looking after all these animals and specific experience over the years pet-sitting other people's cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds.

While I was living in Melbourne, I volunteered at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, which involved dog-walking, cat-pampering, cleaning and providing enrichment for the animals. I have also previously volunteered at the Adelaide Koala and Wildlife Hospital, helping to provide hands-on care for injured and sick wildlife. My passion for animals is also reflected in my current volunteer roles with two amazing organisations: Animal Aid Abroad and The Orangutan Project. I am deeply committed to animal welfare and protection and strongly believe in kindness to all creatures.

Although I have been working as a registered health professional (occupational therapist) for the past 16 years, I recently returned to study to become a counsellor. I am at uni a couple of days a week so am flexible in terms of availability for pet-minding. I am happy to provide once daily home visits for feeding/playing/grooming/enrichment etc. and to provide dog-walking too (small to medium-sized dogs only please).

I have employment-related police checks, which I am happy to provide if requested...

I look forward to meeting you and your animal companion/s!

Renate did a wonderful job of looking after our Pomeranian for 5 days. She was friendly and had great communication. Mia can’t wait for us to go on holidays again so Renate can look after her! We would highly recommend Renate.
