Experienced Vet Nurse Works From Home

43, Writer/Editor

I'm an experienced animal care professional who works from home, so ready, willing and super keen to give your pet the care and attention they deserve when you're away.

I'm a fully qualified veterinary nurse with more than a decade of hands-on experience working with animals. Following my job as a vet nurse, I went on to become a zookeeper at Auckland Zoo, caring primarily for primates for 12 years!

Following a few trips to Sumatra to work with orangutans, I moved to Indonesia and ran a dog and cat health clinic in remote jungle villages while helping a variety of conservation programs.

Now, I'm back in NZ with my partner - for an unexpectedly longer holiday! We popped back in January (2020!) to see family and have not been able to return home to Sumatra.

We desperately miss being around animals and would love to spend time caring for yours.

My partner and I both work from home so have plenty of time and energy to care for anything from fish and birds to cats, sheep, horses... whatever you have, we will love it!

We are extremely tidy and thoughtful and committed to providing the best care for your home and animal family.

Carly and Agung were awesome from start to finish. They made it easy for us to get away earlier than we had agreed which was great. The animals were well cared for, the property was left spic and span and comms before and during were awesome. Lots of pet picks of our dog Poppy and the cattle. Highly reccommended

Carly and Agung took great care of my house and excellent care of my cats (who gave ME the cold shoulder when I returned, so they obviously had much fuss made over them!). I would recommend them for anyone who wants a reliable house sitter to spend time with their critters.
HEATHER (Tauranga , May 2021 - 2 weeks)
We wanted to keep Carley and Agung forever. Our animals were loved to bits and our home was clean and tidy on return. They communicated with us and we never had any issues. Highly recommend these two great sitters.
DOMINI (Kaharoa , Dec 2020 - 1 month 1 week)
We felt really confident leaving our home and animals in Carly and Agung`s hands as they are both clearly very good with animals. Carly`s experience with farm animals was a bonus as we have a sick Alpaca and I knew she would be well looked after. As a result we had a very relaxed holiday knowing the house and animals were in great hands.
LYNDAL (Northland North Island, Oct 2020 - 2 weeks)
Thank you Lyndal! We already miss the alpaca crew, Daisy and Rosie. We will miss our cuddles with sweet Puke - not to mention the rabbits, quails, rosellas, pukekos, pheasants and magpies! Look forward to seeing you again.
All I can say is they were fantastic our little dog loved them, they sent us pictures and kept us updated on how she was going. Our house was all beautiful and clean. I would not hesitate to recommend them to look after anyone's house or animals thank you both .
LINDA. (Hihi North Island, Sep 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
Thanks so much Linda and Barry. We had such a lovely relaxing time at your place and Ziggy was just the cherry on top - so much fun with her and we miss waking up with her little head on the pillow between us!
House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
