About Kelly
Hello, my name is Kelly and I am a lover of all animals great and small!

I work from home and I volunteer my time two days a week to animal not-for-profit organisations, where I perform animal keeping and husbandry tasks for farmyard animals, dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, primates, dingoes and large cats (tigers, lions). I have been in this industry for about 2 years now and have since dedicated my life to caring for animals.

At home I have a large Maine Coon named Merlin, who is 9 years old. He is my pride and joy. He is also an anxious kitty, which for this reason, I cannot host pets in my own home.

I prefer to visit you to pet sit, as it is best for the pet to be in a familiar place and be comfortable in their surroundings. I can stay overnight or just house visit throughout the day (your choice). I can also offer dog walking, however only if your dog has been trained to walk on a lead.

If there is anything in particular about your furry family member that needs to be known, please tell me and I will do my absolute best to accommodate their needs (diet, medication, personality etc). Please also let me know the level of communication you would prefer whilst you are away.

I have my Animal Studies Cert 3 qualification, and am also currently studying Captive Animals Cert 3 at TAFE. I hope to be involved in animal/habitat conservation and rescue in the future. I have also volunteered overseas with Asian Elephants (whom I adore) in a rural village where I was involved in efforts to help improve their daily living conditions. I would also like to become a WIRES carer in the near future.

I live in the Eastern Suburbs but also spend a lot of time in the South-West of Sydney due to my volunteering, so am willing to travel to these areas.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to shoot me a message if you're in need of some quality care for your furry friend :)
