Service Description
I am Maz (Marianne) and I'm based in Petersham, Sydney. I work as an administrator for a children's charity and I am basically animal mad.

I grew up around a lot of animals - we had a few birds (budgies), an army guinea pigs, and two dogs and a cat: Max the massive loyal German Shepherd, Tash the happy little rescue terrier and Lucy, an elegant Russian Blue x Persian princess who only died quite recently at the age of 17 :(. I also support conversation charities including the International Elephant Project and the Virunga National Park Rangers - where the silver back mountain gorillas live.

My partner and I currently live in a flat in Petersham that sadly doesn't allow cats or dogs.. so all we have is one beautiful beta called Blute (who we love - he's a little water puppy) but I often get really sad that we can't keep more pets! I see dogs and cats all over our neighborhood and it makes me really sad that we can't adopt right now. So I thought about the idea of pet sitting in order to help others!

When I thought about the idea of pet sitting I thought "surely EVERYONE is doing this" but since we have recently pet-sat for some of our friends locally and have been looking for our own fish-sitter, I have realized that it isn't easy to find a pet sitter! Fish-sitters are virtually unheard of, but when we go away we prefer to find someone who knows about fish to look after him (betas are pretty sensitive and delicate). And let's be honest, spending time with animals is rad - so really this is helping me out too! Who doesn't want to spend some time running around with a dog or chilling with a cat? And for a charity worker, the experience with animals as well as the opportunity to make some extra money, is invaluable.

I am hoping to be able to provide a locally based reliable, honest, loving, enthusiastic and caring service for you and your animals and I hope that my love of and experience with animals and my love of my local community can work together. :)

I have a clear working with children check (there isn't an animal equivalent, but I feel like there should be!) I am working on getting a police check and I also have several references from friends I've cat-sat for.
At the moment, I'd like to just concentrate on the local area - evening and weekend walks and or feeds, and I'd be happy to negotiate if you are looking for a pet/house sitter to stay at your house while you're away. And we may be okay to have some pets at our place :)
Call me and let's chat. :)

Review And Testimonials
Sarah F.
Maz looked after my two neurotic kitties for a month while I was away on my honeymoon. She made sure they were fed and their water and litter changed every couple of days, as well as spending time with them. When we returned they were still happy and healthy and Maz had left our place tidy and clean. She loves animals very much and I would definitely recommend her to pet sit anyone's pets.
