About Sarah

Look, I'll be honest - this service is offering as much for me as they are for your pets! I'm a gentle, caring vego who just really, really loves to hang out and show appreciation for and with animals. I always had pets growing up who were my best friends, but now that I'm in my thirties and living in an apartment, my circumstances at this stage don't suit having a pet other than a very chilled adopted cat named Bodhi. I adore her! Hopefully this service can fill the void (I WANT ALL THE PETS) and allow me to care for any dog, cat or otherwise in your home.

Please note my service is LGBTIQ friendly. If you aren't queer friendly, then we aren't a great match! I do not smoke or drink more than a light beer of a weekend, and you could say that I take a common sense approach to pet care and home responsibilities. I'll treat your pets just how I treat my Bo at home. If you've got a little tiny critter (ie. bird, rat, bunny etc) I can most certainly take care of her or him at my place if you prefer and I have experience with Reptiles, Chickens and Guinea Pigs too. Lastly, please fully communicate any behavioural issues your pet may have. I have experience with anxious pets etc and am happy to help, however my house sitting booking service requires flexibility and breaks from 24 hour in-home care. I may not be away from your pet for more than a few hours at most, and your fur baby will be required to either be able to travel with me during these breaks or stay home while I break from your home for necessary commitments between the hours of 9am and 5pm. I like to keep it real so that you have full transparency of my services.

For all housesitting bookings I will be at your home before your pets dinner time and will make sure they receive care overnight and the morning of the following day, rate inclusive of walks if desired. I am generally flexible with your times but if the weekend might be extended past these meals please just let me know your needs and we can see how I can accomodate this for you and your little cutie. Are you in the Music or Performance Industry and live from grant to grant? Message me for a special Arts rate, always happy to help with those that sustain a living (or attempt to) via the Arts. Early or Afternoon walks and weekends are always welcome!

Lastly, if you have housemates in your home please message regarding arrangements. Typically, due to personal safety overnight stays are not accepted if there are others in the home during sleeping hours. I am happy to waive this after consultation for disability or elderly support purposes.

Receiving regular photos & updates from Sarah helped being away from our much loved dog. She is full of love & care. Just brilliant!
