About Melissa
Hey there!

I'm an experienced pet carer currently residing on 10 acres in Sheldon, Queensland where there is plenty of room to run around! Pets reside in a modern 1 bedroom cabin behind the main house - separate for full peace of mind.

At Responsible Pet Care, we treat your pet like family giving them the freedom to explore over an acre of fully fenced grassland. We have a cabin separate to the main house where the pets stay. It's self contained including a separate kitchen, loungeroom, bedroom, bathroom and outdoor area. This ensures complete sanctuary for your pet during their stay. For the pups that sleep outside, there are two large reinforced steel enclosures, each with their own yard area. Either way, your pet will be spoilt with tons of love and affection, unlimited cuddles and playtime.

Services Include:
Overnight Pet Minding, Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking, House Visits.

• Fully insured
• Professional and reliable pet care
• Fully secured indoor and outdoor areas
• Multiple-pet discount
• Flexible availability
• 24/7 supervision available
• Optional pick up/drop up service
• Tons of photos & videos of your pet plus message updates

Activities Offered:
• Swimming in our large pool to cool off on hot summer days or to become more confident in and around the water.
• The pool area is fully fenced, and we are happy to supervise a swim or play if your pup is interested.
• Expelling energy running and playing around the property and main yard.

Cuddles & Playtime
• As we understand that all pets are different, our focus is to maintain their normal routine whilst in our care. For this, we provide both indoor and outdoor areas where your pet can sunbake, play, or cuddle on the couch.

A friend for your fur-baby:
• Kirra - our lovely female Border Collie. She is housed separately in her own main area, is extremely friendly and is always up for a good play!
• Munchie - our beautiful fur ball. She is extremely nurturing towards new cats and loves to cuddle.
• Both are de-sexed, up to date on all vaccinations and are housed separately from visiting pets when required.

Walks & Exercise:
• We have a large grass paddock where your pet can do wide-set “zoomies” and exert as much energy as they need to. Pets are always supervised when in the main yard for their safety.
• Your pet will also have constant access to a secure outdoor area attached to the house, therefore allowing them to go wherever they feel most comfortable during the day.

Experienced in caring for a variety of animals including household birds, fish, guinea pigs, chickens, cows, horses and more. I am always willing to learn new skills if needed and am happy to discuss your needs over the phone or in person.

Melissa did a great job of looking after my puppy. Pixie had plenty of space to run and expend her puppy energy! Melissa was gentle and kind and I would definitely use her service again.
