  • Ronni
    Just want to say a huge Thank U to Ronni for caring for our babies while we were away for a few days. She kept us updated daily after she fed them. She also played and spoilt them lots as their tub of biscuits were half when we got back. She also picked up the dog poo and cleaned their water bowl daily. Great service. I feel at ease knowing my babies are in the best of care. Thank You to Lee-Ann and Ronni. GREAT JOB

    Hi Leanne yes we were extremely happy thank you. As it turned out Ashleigh went to school with my youngest son, Keegan. Ashleigh is a lovely young lady and looked after our beloved pets very well. We would most certainly use your services again when we require a housesitter.   Kind Regards Noleen
  • Ms De Stegmann
    I was going away for 3 weeks and needed someone to take care of my African Grey Schnukie. Luckily I was given "GoingAway Pet and House Sitters" number - Leanne. Somie was allocated to me. I was very nervous about leaving my baby girl, but in no time at all I relaxed and was able to enjoy my holiday. Somie's regular updates were fantastic and Schnukie was happy and healthy and well cared for when I got home. I will definitely be using GoingAway Pet and House Sitters services in the future. Thank you so much.

    Good morning Leanne, I just want to say a very big thank you for placing Charnelle in my house for the days that I was away so that my four cats and my house were looked after. On arrival home i found that my house seemed to be neater and cleaner than before I went away. My cats were totally stress free on my return and everything was in order. Once again a big thank you and could you please say thank you to Charnelle from myself and my babies.Now I know where I can turn to if I need a baby sitter for my cats.I can only recommend to others for the good service provided. Kind regards Garry Heales

    I would like to thank you for a very efficient and professional service that you have provided by taking care of my two cats while we were away from 24 to 27 sept. This enabled us to have a very relaxed and enjoyable long weekend away with my daughter, knowing very well that our beloved pets were in very good hands. Your "assistant " Roxy has proven to be a very caring and reliable person whose passion and love for animals quickly erased any doubts we had as it was the first time that we made use of such a service. She updated us daily with photos and sms's about Coco and Chloe. Once again thank you very much. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that requires your service. Clive Beacon Bay

Nothing is ever too much for her!!  GoingAway Pet and House Sitters East London & team are by far the best people to ever consider leaving your pets with!! They will be loved & cared for!!
