Service Description
I live in Adelaide, I'm a retired Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technician with the Peoria Fire Department in Arizona (U.S.A.)
I worked closely on a daily basis giving care and comfort to those involved in difficult situations including family members, friends and neighbours while providing shelter for animals they loved but could not physically or mentally provide for their needs.
During my years on the Fire Department I adopted a rescue her name was "Brody" ( Lab/Doberman mix) She was there every step of the way on my physical journeys hiking, jogging you name it she was there to pull me through some mentally exhausting pain. She was my best friend, a wonderful listener and a perfect cuddly buddy.
Before that I worked at Sherman Oaks Veterinary Clinic in California. I fed, walked and bathed my furry friends that where there to be boarded while their families were on holiday.That part was hard seeing them in a cage for days even weeks. I often came in early and stayed late for that little bit of extra time with them and walks.
After retiring I really want to be involved in something that makes our best friends happy.... me as well.

Review And Testimonials
Tracy P.
Our pets are family and we have never left them before. We wanted to take a holiday overseas and we were concerned as to how we could do this. From the moment Kelly visited we felt confident and reassured she would look after our pets and see to all their needs. Finn our Kelpie suffers from anxiety and one of our rabbits had been unwell for some time. Finn immediately loved Kelly and we knew they would be best friends. Kelly also took our rabbit to the vets weekly. While we were away we received daily messages with photos of Finn on walks and cuddling by the fire and Alvin at the Vets gaining weight and doing well. Kelly was always contactable if we needed to, which was so reassuring. We were able to enjoy our holiday without worrying about our pets or our house at all. When we arrived home Kelly had taken amazing care of our house and our pets were happy and relaxed. We couldn't be happier and we would definitely have Kelly look after our furry family again. Finn misses her already!
