StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Amy V

Area: Menlo Park, Pretoria

Note: Amy happily looks after pets who are not in her immediate area - driving is not a problem.

Course of study: Honours in Architecture

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: September 2015


Experience with animals and own pets

I truly believe we are all made to have a pet companion. I am blessed to be the pet owner of 2 cats (Milkshakes and Lola). I have been pet sitting for 4 years and it has and always will be a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to spend time with other pets.

I am a hardworking and friendly person, and will treat your pets with as much love and respect as I treat my own!
