Service Description
I started looking after people's pets in their homes in 2011 after a friend asked me to house sit for several months while she went overseas. I then went on to various websites and have been house sitting pets now throughout the year since then. I mostly look after dogs and cats but also chickens, rabbits, snakes and various other animals as well. As long as they have been well cared for and are happy in their homes I'm happy to assist.

I am a qualified social worker but only work part time so I have plenty of spare time to do other things, and one of them is spending time with animals. I have tons of references (see names and numbers below) some of whom I still regularly house sit for. I consider myself to be a well balanced, trustworthy, reliable and caring person who truly connects with animals at their level and who treats them as unique little beings with their own individual needs. I am no longer looking for house sits more than one month. However, I am available for shorter or overnight or day care type arrangements. So feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements. I'd love to hear from you!

Karen C.
Kerri was fantastic while we were away. She took care of all our animals very well and even did a few things around the house for us. She was flexible and accommodating when our plans changed. I would highly recommend Kirri to anyone looking for a pet sitter

Kirri did an amazing job of looking after my two huskies. They got plenty of walks and attention. House was kept very clean and tidy, couldn't be happier!

Kirri is definitely worth 5 stars+. Not only did she do a brilliant job looking after Archie and Brandy [our two elderly and sometimes demanding dogs], but she also left our house and garden in very good condition. Would not hesitate to recommend Kirri.

I found out about MadPaws from my mother. In the past I have not made any money out of house sitting but have lived in other people's homes for several weeks without having to pay rent or bills. Now that I have my own home I'd rather do very short overnight stays or some day care or walking and earn a little bit of extra cash.
