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.

Whilst living in Melbourne, I volunteered at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, which involved dog-walking, cat-pampering, cleaning and providing enrichment for animals in the shelter. I have previously volunteered at the Adelaide Koala and Wildlife Hospital as well, helping to provide hands-on care for injured and sick wildlife.

My passion for animals is also reflected in my current volunteer roles with three amazing organisations: RSPCA, Animal Aid Abroad and The Orangutan Project. With the RSPCA, I give talks in kindergartens to teach children about animals and their welfare. I assist with social media and fundraising for Animal Aid Abroad and help run community stalls for The Orangutan Project. I am deeply committed to improving animal welfare and protection and strongly value kindness towards all creatures.

I work part time as a registered health professional (occupational therapist) and am fairly 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 am reliable, conscientious and 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.
