Sharon has a deep love of animals, their welfare and the relationship between pets and their human parents. Sharon has two rescue cats; Harry (pictured) and Luna. She also loves Home Boarding client's dogs and hutch pets in her purpose built home in Lockwood, Bendigo. This service is a "home away from home" for much loved pets.

Fiona has extensive experience in the animal care field. She has volunteered at the RSPCA and also fosters dogs and cats for local rescues. Fiona is currently completing her Certificate 4 in Companion Animal Studies and is particularly interested in the psychology and behaviour of pets. She loves being able to win over particularly nervous pets and has been nicknamed “the cat whisperer” by Sharon. Fiona has a gorgeous and cheeky dog, Freya (pictured), and three foster-fail cats – Pharaoh, Penelope and Shadow. A 'foster-fail' is what happens when you were supposed to give the cat back after fostering but decided to keep it!

This is Beth who is passionate about animals. She has volunteered at the wildlife shelter and RSPCA and now has a certificate 3 in animal companion animals services and certificate 3 in pet grooming. She has experience feeding farm animals, horses, cows, even deer and emus as well as domestic pets.

This is Vicky pictured with her rescue cat Loki. Vicky works part time in the office taking bookings and helping to run the Petcarers online store. She names all of her pets after movie characters. Loki was adopted in July 2021 as a kitten who had been found at a truck stop. As his name suggests, he is mischievous but purrs loudly enough to make up for any trouble he causes. Not pictured - a tortoiseshell cat called Rey.
