I am an experienced grown up woman (54) who loves all creatures great and small! I have been petsitting independently and fostering animals for years now and always enjoy it. I registered 10 years ago as a forster carer for The Animal Welfare League (AWL) in the Manning Valley and more recently again in Newcastle for Hunter Animal Rescue (HAR). So far have successfully fostered 3 lovely dogs, 4 gorgeous kittens, 1 demanding mamma cat and a 4 amazing rabbits! I know what its like to love them and have to leave them in someone elses care. I have left George, our gorgeous easy going resident dog, numerous times to go to visit my father in England. It's always such a momentous decision. Peace of mind when you are leaving your beloved animal can never be underestimated. It can make or break your trip. That's why I will treasure your beast like its my own and report back to you as regularly as you need. I am very happy to walk dogs miles daily, or sit on the couch for hours adoring cats, if thats what it takes. I have been renting a dog friendly room on Airbnb now for nearly 7 years where there are over 70 happy reviews from people with dogs who enjoyed thier stay (search Airbnb The Furnleigh Shack). Please note: TWO CATS LIVE HERE...DOGS THAT BARK AT AND/OR CHASE CATS WILL BE HAPPIER ELSEWHERE!!...

Sarah was very friendly, competent and reliable.
Luna was well looked after and had a great time playing in the yard with her dog George.
She kept me updated with how Luna was going which gave us peace of mind and allowed us to properly relax knowing that Luna was in good hands.
We would have no hesitation leaving Luna with Sarah again. …
