About Melanie
Caring for animals is my passion. I enjoy caring for any kind of animal. I own a horse, a dog, 4 cats, a number of chooks and ducks and a pet rat. My dog is a 17 month old St Bernard who is just the biggest sook! My cats are all rescue cats who I have adopted from animal shelters. I sometimes do animal foster which I really enjoy. My house is kept nice and cool in the summer months and warm in the winter. If you have a dog who doesn’t like cats, don’t worry, I am able to keep them completely separated if necessary.

I have a large secure yard with plenty of dog toys and clam shells filled with water which my own dog absolutely loves. I also have an outdoor secure cat run which can be used as a dog run if required. I will look after your pet as if it were my own.

I live close to many reserves and an oval where I can walk dogs daily. On the days I offer pet sitting I do not work so I am available to be there with your animals all day apart from doing school pick up and drop offs.
