About Kristy
I am an animal lover and have two dogs of my own and had a 15 year old cat that has recently passed over the rainbow bridge. I am a foster carer as well a volunteer Pound Coordinator and volunteer IT Manager for the non-profit organisation Hunter Animal Rescue. I have been involved with animal rescue for over 5 years now and have rehomed many animals in that time. I have a large backyard and two cat enclosures if you are seeking away from home care. I am a responsible, trustworthy person if in-home care is required.

I have always been an animal lover since I was quite young to now. I can't really say if I am a dog person or a cat person. I guess I just love them both. It has been challenging sometimes with the amount of animals I have had in care. Some very shy pets that needed a little extra tlc, and some sick cats that have required in-home medical care. I have enjoyed having them all and learning new skills such as in-home veterinary care and basic dog training.

I ensure for all animals to feel safe and happy in my home environment. For the cats, I have two large play catteries in the backyard where the cats can get some exercise and experience the outdoors in a safe way. For the dogs, I have a large backyard for the dogs to exercise and to play ball. For those pet owners that require in-home pet care, I let the pet tell me what they want, with limits of course.

Kristy was so professional and easy to communicate with. I was comforted but the photos that were sent to me and when coming home all the pups were happy and the house was left perfectly. Would happily have Kristy again and recommend her.

Thanks Kristy for loving our boys like they were your own. They are happy and not anxious at all after staying with you.
