About Kestrel
I have a certificate II in Animal Studies, and am currently studying a Bachelor of Wildlife science and a Certificate IV in Captive Animals

I have knowledge in animal first aid due to my Certificate II

I love being around animals, and I have had pets my entire life, inlcuding dog for 13 years, a cat for 10, budgies, fish, and small rodents. Animals are a huge passion of mine

I have also worked in numerous animal care environments as part of my studies, such as wildlife parks.

I am comfortable with any animal, including reptiles, as I volunteer at the Wildlife centre on my university campus, which has a variety of lizards and snakes, as well as other animals

I am most comfortable with dogs, cats, and birds, as I have the most experience with these

I live on my uni campus, so unfortunately i will not be able to provide sitting services at my own residence. I also unfortunately don't own a car.

Pet Sitting - Apr 10, 2022
Kestrel was wonderful with our dogs. They were well looked after in their own home. She was very responsible and kept in touch when needed while we were away. Wouldn’t hesitate to utilise her services again when needed.

House Visiting - Jan 5, 2022
Kestrel did a meet and greet prior to the 2wks care, of daily visits, feeding my Staffy and Jack Russell and Pig and kept an eye out over the horses too; no feeding/watering necessary but moved them from paddock to paddock for grazing. Kestrel confirmed routine prior to first feed to ensure correct medication and managed a 'no water' crisis by following telephonic direction to fix situation.

Kestrel was 100% reliable with my two dogs, and did an amazing job! I could always reach her when I needed to, and I highly recommend Kestrel for any animal sitting jobs in the future!
