About Samantha

A LITTLE ABOUT ME :I am a very passionate animal lover and lucky to be so happy in my career! I have recently returned home from a year in Canada, working as a vet nurse at the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre and Mountainside 24hr Emergency. Since arriving back in Sydney I resumed work in my long term job as a Specialist Surgery Nurse and Oncology Nurse at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), which is where I worked for 3 years prior to my Canada move. I'm extremely experienced in all aspects of animal care, working as a fully qualified Vet Nurse for 8 years, working my way up to my dream positions, surrounded by the most respected in my industry, and working at one of the best Veterinary Hospitals in the county. I have also volunteered and studied at Taronga Conservation Society and other animal orginizations around the world. Working with animals is my dream, career choice, passion and happiness!

MY HOUSE/PET SITTING EXPERIENCE :I pet sat through Pawshake for 12 months leading up to my Canada travels and have previous pet/Housesitting experience from my time working at Seafoth Veterinary Hospital, Including both long stay, overnight and day visits (for medicating and feeding), over a period of about 18 months. I met all of my clients through the Veterinary Hospital I worked at. I am lucky enough to be based around the North Shore and northern beaches, perfect places to take dogs out for a play and stretch their legs. I like taking furry friends out for a little coffee break in the nice weather as well as give them an abundance of love and cuddles when they are at home. I am very respectful and tidy and believe strongly in treating others property as I would want someone to treat mine, your house would be very well looked after during my stay. In closing I hope to meet plenty of new friends on my Pawshake venture, both fur friends and people friends.

House Sitting

I can’t recommend Sam enough. Sam house sat and looked after our two cats while we were overseas for two weeks. Sam kept us constantly up to date with pictures and videos and was always extreamly responsive even with a 9 hour time difference. She looked after our cats like they were her own and they were so happy and content when we got back. Our apartment was immaculate on our return and the towels and linen were even washed! Thank you so much Sam, you went above and beyond!!!

Samantha is a true animal lover. She made us feel totally at ease and that our fur child would be well looked after! He had a great time and many photos and updates shared regularly! We will definitely ask Samantha to sit for us again! Thanks Sam!!!
