About Maria
I have always loved animals, and had animals.

Are you going away? Or are you going overseas? Or need someone to look after your pet at your home? Have peace of mind knowing your fur babies and other pets are loved and well cared for in your absence. There will also be plenty of cuddles as well for all your fur babies and other pets. Animals seem to be drawn to me and have come running into my tent (dogs) when at the beach just to have a cuddle. Or when walking on the beach running to me just to play or to be petted.

If your fur babies sleep outside that's fine with me or if your fur babies like to go to the beach I will be happy to take them there, or prefer a walk around the block or a local park, then that's where we will go. Obviously plenty of cuddles during the day as well. If you are overseas I will be happy to send you pictures via whats app or email or mobile phone to stay in touch.

I have experience with farm animals as my grand parents used to have a farm.

I live a healthy live style and enjoy walking dogs, looking fur babies and other pets. It brings joy and smiles not just for me but for the owners as well to see there pets are loved and well taken care off.

Many clients schedule their trips around my availability. Flexibility with times so message me to check my availability.

Home visits; $17 a day

To feed, play , cuddle, get mail, water plants if required, put bins out/in or letting your furry babies out in the back when requested by the owner. Need your fur babies or other pets food bowl or water filled up that's what I will do. Need cages of birds , rabbits , litter trays cleaned out that's what I do as well.

Usually visits are around 30 minutes. Or does your your fur baby need to be taken to the vet or picked up and dropped off? If you have a puppy I can take them to dog training for you as long as you pay for the training. You will get plenty of pictures of your fur babies and other pets during my stay or even video's via email.

Dog walking $25hour

If you have puppies, I am happy to take them to puppy training for your as long as you pay for the training. Reports will be send to you daily about your puppies progress.

House Visiting - Apr 22, 2022
Maria was fantastic and very accommodating. She was thorough on arrival of our first meeting writing down all instructions even extra notes of her own. Our kitties were well looked after and happy on our reunion home after a stay away. Maria was very friendly and trustworthy, even sending us pictures with each visit. I would highly recommend Maria and use her services again.Thanks Maria.

I am very happy that I've found Maria on Madpaws... I found her a very reliable person which is very important to me. She took our Milo for a walk when we were away for the day and even spent some quality time with him and made sure he was fed too. We will definitely use her services in the future and would certainly recommend her ☺️.Thank you Maria, totally appreciated your care for Milo.
