About Donna
Hi my name is Donna,
My family and I have been living in Bridgeman Downs in our family home for the past 22 years with my husband and 3 beautiful daughters. Over my life I have cared for and loved many pets, including cats, dogs, puppies, kittens, chickens, birds, guinea pigs and fish. Most recently our beloved 13 year old Maltilier Monty sadly, so very sadly passed away in April leaving his family who adored him. I know myself from my own experience how precious family pets are and how they bring sooo much love and joy into our lives. I signed up for Mad Paws as I miss having pets to love and care for.

My daughter Elizabeth, husband David and myself offer dog walking, cat and dog sitting at your home, dog hosting at our home, house visits, day care at your home or our home and any other pet service you might need, just send me a message to discuss.

Our house/pet sitting (at your home) includes morning and afternoon walks, stay the night with them so they're not lonely and of course some play and cuddles time. We are able to do other tasks to maintain your home for eg. collecting the mail, take the bins in/out. Please contact me to discuss any tasks you need done, there maybe an extra charge depending on the tasks.

For house visits, we pop over to your place for about 30minutes and this includes clean litter tray, a feed, fresh water and some play and cuddles. We are able to visit more than once a day if needed, please let me know.

Dog walking includes pick up from your home and 30-45 minutes or so (depending on the needs of your pet).

Pet hosting at our home, means your pet becomes part of our family showered with lots of love and lots of playtime in our fenced back yard. The fence in the backyard however is 3foot high and we back onto a nature strip so there is lots of wildlife. The service includes a walk in the morning and afternoon and your pet will sleep inside, please let me know of any sleep requirements that your pet may have.

Our pet day care service includes day care at your home or our home, keeping your pet company. It includes walking your pet and lots of playtime and cuddles, and obviously a feed and fresh water.

We will take photos of your treasured pets and text them to you while we are caring for them, keeping you up to date.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, please include as much detail as possible including your location.

Donna was amazing! It was my first time leaving my cat with a sitter and she made me feel really comfortable and was so accommodating. I got lots of pictures while I was away, which also helped to put my mind at ease. Highly recommend 😊
