StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Jana R

Area: Verwoerdpark, Alberton

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

I am currently: Third year zoology and genetics student at UNISA

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: February 2020


Experience with animals and own pets

I currently have two doggies; Daisy is an old female dachshund and Jamie is a 2-year-old rescue cross puppy. I also have three pet fancy rats- Bella, Delilah and Juliet. I enjoy taking naps with my doggies on the couch and taking them to the park for walks when I can

I have had pets since I was small and have experience in taking care of dogs, hamsters, rats, birds and fish. I have a great love for cats but have unfortunately never had one as a pet as my mom is allergic to them. My love for animals has been the reason of my choosing to study Zoology.

I enjoy spending time at the SPCA interacting with the kittens and donating items from time to time. I have also volunteered at SANCCOB rescuing wild coastal birds needing help. I am also planning on doing a volunteer program in Malawi for animals some time

I cannot wait to meet you furr-babies and I can promise they are in loving, caring hands with me!

All 9 of them was love and care for by Jana.

Jana had a job and a half with my fur babies - Ghandi and Odie ( doggies) are old and needed a lot of love; and Sugarpie, Peaches, Plum, Ziggy and Poppie was a hand full with the two old ones Pepe and Midnight (cats) . Thanks so much!!!
