About maria

My journey into pet sitting is deeply rooted in a lifelong love for animals. Growing up in Colombia, pets were an integral part of my life since the age of 8. When I moved away a year ago to Sydney, leaving my cherished pets in the care of my family, I felt a void without their companionship. Becoming a pet sitter has been my way of reconnecting with that love and closeness I've always had with animals.

My motivation as a pet sitter is twofold: it's about the unconditional affection I feel for animals and the desire to provide them with the care, love, and attention they deserve. Being around pets brings me immense joy; I adore spending quality time with them, going on enriching walks, and engaging in playful activities.

My experience with pets spans years of caring for both dogs and cats. I've been entrusted with the responsibility of caring for homes and pets while their owners are away. Notably, my time with Bruno (my husband's dog), a dog who lived a restricted and sorrowful life before me (because Most of the time, he stayed tied up in the yard and looked sad, so I gradually fought to integrate him more, allowing him to be free in the house and eventually become a happy dog. ), taught me the transformative power of love and care. I take pride in offering a safe, loving environment where pets feel cherished and valued.

While I prefer pets to be vaccinated for their safety and that of others, I understand unique situations and am open to discussing individual cases. Your pets will receive unwavering attention and affection in my care, ensuring they feel right at home even when you're away.
