About Lily

My partner, Brodie, and I have always been animal lovers. Throughout our lives, we have developed our skills by

working with animals of all shapes and sizes.

I first moved to Australia as an international student to study Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Adelaide. Desperately missing having an animal around, as soon as I could I bought a pet rat and moved into a share house with a little Jack Russell Terrier also named Lily. I have spent time volunteering in a veterinary clinic and am comfortable dealing with any medical problems that our beloved pets may develop. I have also spent a great deal of time volunteering at zoos and working with various reptiles, insects, and small mammals. For me, nothing beats a walk or trip to the park with a dog.

Being animal crazy runs in my genes. My mother worked as a veterinary technician and later as a great ape keeper at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, USA. I have spent a total of 6 months of my entire childhood without a dog or cat waiting at home. As I got older, I began developing interests in pets beyond your standard dogs and cats. As soon as I could walk, I wanted to be a horse rider. While in high school, I rode competitively for my school's teams and qualified for Nationals two years in a row. Despite the excitement that accompanies winning in the ring, I realized that I actually prefer stable management and horsemanship. As an international student, I am unable to ride while in Australia, but whenever I return home, I help my coach train and exercise horses. In high school, I began bird watching and have since further developed my passion for birds.

Brodie’s household has never been without a pet. Nothing puts a bigger smile on his face than getting to stop and greet a dog on the street or making friends with a neighbourhood cat. As a competitive athlete, Brodie’s energy and exuberance can tire even the most rambunctious of pups! Together, we can provide any service to your fury/scales/hairy friend!

After meeting Lily ,I was confident that her enthusiasm for and knowledge of animals would make her ideal to look after my three pets. Having peace of mind when you leave your animals is essential, and I returned to happy relaxed pets and a tidy house. I strongly recommend her and will definitely use in the future.
