About Melissa

I am Mel, a 25-year-old Brazilian, and my life has been filled with animals since my childhood, which has given me a deep understanding and appreciation for them. I even began my studies in veterinary medicine before I moved to Australia, demonstrating my commitment to the well-being of animals.

In addition to caring for my own animals, I also have a long history of rescuing street animals and providing them with a safe and loving environment until they find a permanent home. A touching example is the story of my dog Izabel, whom I rescued from the streets while she was pregnant and had a transmissible tumor. With the help of chemotherapy, the vets managed to cure her. While she couldn't be around, I took care of her 10 puppies for months, feeding them every two hours and attending to all their needs.

My extensive experience and knowledge enable me to handle animals of all shapes and sizes, and even animals with special needs and disabilities (I can also administer medication to pets if needed). I have a genuine passion for them and promise to care for your pet as if it were my own. If you're looking for someone who offers affection, attention, and expertise, I'm here to take care of your pet with all the love and dedication they deserve.

I offer dog walking and pet visits in Wolli Creek. Regarding dog walking, the service will last for 1 hour, and I can pick up the dog at your place if you live in areas close to the train station, and walk with them in the nearest park or surroundings. For pet visits, I can help with medications, feeding the animals, play around and give some love and attention, or any other tasks that they might need!
