Pandemic-related info as restrictions ease: I will only be servicing pet owners in Footscray area. I will wear a face mask and maintain social distancing and hygiene measures (such as frequent hand sanitising) as required. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
A little about me: I'm Sunny (they/them pronouns) and I am a Footscray-based emerging artist and Pet Sitter with Mad Paws. I love dogs and firmly believe that all dogs are beautiful, inside and out. I'm always so excited to meet a new pup, and yours will be no exception 💛 I also adore cats (I am both a dog AND cat person!!) and have experience taking care of a cheeky indoor cat named Manny, mainly feeding him, cleaning his litter tray, providing affection, and meowing back at him when he meows at me!
Unfortunately I cannot host pets/have pets come to stay as I live with a lovely 7-year-old greyhound named Olive, but I will gladly come over to play with and take care of your sweet furbaby. Having said this, Olive loves to meet other greyhounds and is a great mentor for anxious greyhounds, so if you are a greyhound owner and would like to meet Olive, send me a message and we can discuss further!
I also appreciate clear and direct communication, both beforehand about expectations and requirements for your pooch/kitty, as well as during the petsitting period in case of an emergency. I am happy to keep in contact with you as often as you would like with pics and updates of your pet 🙂
I currently offer pet day care, house visits, and dog walking. Base rates for these services are displayed below. I may increase these rates depending on length of stay, care needs for your pet, etc, and will discuss this further when I meet you and your pet in person!
I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your lovely four-legged friend 😊...
