Hi, I'm Sophie, and I love animals. I've spent my life growing up making friends with all the neighbourhood cats, finally getting my own cat, who is now 21 years old. I'm a Mental Health Peer Work student, and a mental health advocate for Batyr and SANE Australia.
When I was studying in 2016 and 2017, I was able to do some dog sitting for a few different family members, and cat sitting for a few friends, and it was fantastic, being able to be around other animals, keeping them company and making sure they are happy and fed and taken on walks, while their owners were away.
I would love to be able to do more pet sitting along NSW South Coast. I live in Wollongong, and while I don't drive, I can easily get to areas that are easily accessible via train or bus.
I am available for housesits, dog walking, pet day care and pet/house visits. For pet/house visits, I will stay with your pet for up to two hours - your pet can get to know me, and be more comfortable with me dropping by to feed them and clean up after them, and I can see they are eating, drinking and behaving as usual, and to give your pet time to play and interact! I am more than happy bring in mail and water any plants that need watering too. I will send through daily updates for all bookings.
Available for dog walking. I am able to do FaceTime meet and greets, and can help with arranging contactless pick up and drop offs of your pooch. ...
