About Alina

Hello. My name is Alina and I live in Toowoomba, QLD. I work full time during the week in the Defence Industry but I have a passion for animals and their welfare. I have a Bachelor of Applied Science, majoring in Wildlife Science which I completed at UQ Gatton in 2019. I have previously worked at pet shops and an equine breeding facility, and I have volunteered at zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. I have always loved animals of all types and sizes, and I have grown up owning and caring for many different ones. I currently have 2 gorgeous Dalmatians, and 2 beautiful cats, and I have previously owned mice, rats, guinea pigs, fish, birds, chickens, ducks, turtles, and horses also. Unfortunately my house and yard are full and I’m only renting at the moment so I cannot pet sit your pet/s at my house, however I am more than happy to come to your house to care for your pet/s in your own home. You can choose between one or two visits per a day, or house sitting, while you are away enjoying your time on your holiday. I am happy to feed, water, and look after both cats and dogs, as well as other domestic animals, farm animals, and non venomous Australian Wildlife. I would love to send you photo updates while checking up on your pets, and send you a message letting you know how they are going. Please send me a message to check on my availability, and so that we can arrange to meet in person, your pets included of course. Thank you.

Alina showed great care, understanding and common sense when looking after my big and sometimes silly dog. Definitely recommend :)

House Sitting
Clem, 2024-05-10

We asked Alina to look after our two big dogs at our own house for a few nights, and after a couple of meet and greets, we could see that our boys were perfectly comfortable with her. And that made us feel confident to go away knowing that they would be well looked after. During our time away, Alina sent us updates and photos of our dogs; and when we came home, they didn't sulk, like they sometimes do when we are gone for some time. Which was a clear indication that they felt happy and safe with her. The house was exactly as we left it too. We do not know Alina well but we can recognise that she is a kind, caring and conscientious person. We will for sure ask her to look after our doggies in the future if she's happy to cuddle them again!
