Dianne

Pet & House Sitter, Walker

Based in Vincent area and happy to help in other areas too

Hi I am Dianne, im a mother of 3 and 3 ½ grandchildren, I have had pets come and go through my life – dogs, cats, birds, rats, hamsters, fish, etc. you name it. As a child I had s fish tank full of mice. My adult sons all have pets in their homes and one even has a porcupine and a guinea pig.  I currently reside with my sister and there are 3 dogs and 3 cats, so I am constantly surrounded and in contact with pets. We are a close knit family and we are constantly involved with each other’s children AND pets.I believe that we must respect our pets, and not let them get out of control. Neutering and spaying is very important, if one is not breeding them. Not everyone is a breeder. It breaks my heart to see people get a pet and they breed and sit with unwanted pets, this is where abuse begins. This is my opinion and experience on owing pets. Kind regards Dianne

Based in Dorchester Heights area and happy to help in other areas too

Hi, im Ria, I was born in Benoni and stayed in a few Provinces. For the past 12 years I’ve been living in East London. I rescued a kitten off the street, saved his life and gave him a home. He is currently my best friend. Furthermore I help taking care of my Son’s 3 “high maintenance” dogs. The are of the “I constantly need love and affection” breeds which also not allow you much personal space. Seeing them and playing with them is the best part of my day. These loved ones are on special diets because of allergies. Some medication need to be administered from time to time, so I believe myself to love and take care of another’s animals as I look after my own and my Son’s special fur babies.

Pet & House Sitter, Walker

Based in Loevenstein area and happy to help in other areas too

Ever since I was a born I been surrounded by different types of animals. I got my first animal when I was 7,and it was a hamster I called snuggles 😊. I had him for about 5 years. My hamster taught me responsibilities I never know I had, It taught me to love and to look after something that was not just a stuffed animal. My dad thought is was funny to adopt a pig, shoo she was a hand full. She squeeked at everything, but she grew on me 😊. Please let me look after your fur babies, even if they are a pig. 😂

I cant wait to look after your fur babies.
