About Kelly

I am an international Med student at James Cook University. I live in Townsville CBD close to the strand, great for taking dogs for walks!

I have always had pets, even as a kid. Currently I have a cat and a horse who are being looked after by family. I love the company of either cats or dogs and would love the opportunity to enjoy a little time with some furry friends while studying on the weekends.

Back in Canada, I worked as an animal care attendant at both a pet hotel for cats, dogs and small animals and at a veterinary clinic. All together I have about 6 years experience working in this field. Prior to leaving Canada this Jan 2016 I was the animal care supervisor at the pet hotel. I was able to oversee all of the dogs and cats that were guests, handle any shy or timid guests, give updates to clients, perform basic wound care to scratches, cuts and hot spots. I have been trained to give a 5 point wellness checks to all pets to make sure they are happy and healthy and I am also trained in dog handling and safety.

I am available on weekends and can either do home stays or have the pets dropped off for daycare at my residence.

House Sitting
Rani, 2019-12-07

I was extremely happy with the service I received from Kelly. She was prompt and friendly and my dog liked her immediately. When I returned from my trip, the house was tidy and well presented and my dog had been well looked after. I will definitely use Kelly again and I highly recommend her to others.

Kelly was absolutely awesome!! She took great care of our 3 babies in our home for a week.

She was extremely easy to deal with and our house was immaculate when we got home. Kelly made a very stressful situation completely stress free by frequently updating us with messages and photos and being so quick to reply when we checked in with her.

Our puppies absolutely loved her. Highly recommend, we couldn’t have asked for a better pet sitter. 😊
