What we do to help
Share My Pet aims to improve lives of pets and animals in need.
We regularly organise fundraising events and take part in national fundraising for animal charities throughout New Zealand.
“Princess” Coco is our chilled greyhound and we wanted to find someone who would enjoy her company while we were out at work. Share My Pet has provided that and we are really happy knowing she gets to hang out with a cool human and is safe and cared for. The service Lily and team provide for the cost of membership is outstanding.
Highly recommend. Staff are amazing and are very focused on helping their clients find ‘sharers’ in a safe and professional way. Was great to trial a dog before we committed to one.
My class has had the pleasure of Snout the Schnoodle in our school on a weekly basis. Snout has impacted on so many of my kids in such a positive way. She would just cruise around getting cuddles from everyone. Share my Pet is an amazing concept for everyone. It has been a pleasure to be part of the programme this year. I would highly recommend giving it a go either privately or at a school. Snout would come in and be very excited to see us. She loved being able to watch the kids from my knee or curl up beside on of the kids.
Thank you for allowing your much loved pet to visit. We hope to see her again next year.
What a great thing Share My Pet has been for me. Always a cat lover and owner but now, at a time in my life where I don’t want the responsibility of a pet, I can share one or two. My daughter is involved with Share My Pet, so when she shares their beloved little doggies, I do too. Walks at the beach, snuggles in the sun and occasionally a sleepover if their owners are away. Our whole family has developed a lovely relationship with the dogs and owners and it is so lovely to be greeted so enthusiastically by my doggy grandchildren. They have added a happy new dimension to my life. Thank you Lili and Dave.
Even if you can’t have your own pet due to circumstances you can still interact with them in a safe and loving environment. Its an absolute win-win for both, people and pets!!!
With work being demanding we haven’t been able to have our own dog.
It’s such a great feeling when you have a play date organized, arriving to a hairy happy face wagging its tail so hard it’s barely staying on all fours!
The dog owners are happy their wee friends are out getting the most from their day, it’s a real win-win for the dogs, their owners, and the carers!
Share my pet has allowed me, someone who longs for a pet, to experience all the joys that comes with owning an anima without the commitment. After building trust between myself, the owners and the animal themselves, it’s as easy as a message (either via the site or phone) to agree on a pick up time and date. Whether it’s to the beach, around the parks or a snuggle at home, it is the highlight of my week and it is all thanks to this wonderful site!
Share My Pet has given us an incredible opportunity to find a lovable pet here in New Zealand while we’re away from our family dogs in the UK. Unfortunately, our current situation here doesn’t allow us to have a dog of our own. So this has been a perfect situation for us, we got to meet a pet that had plenty of energy and love to share. The website makes it super easy to connect with dog owners who are ready to share their pets. It’s really made a positive difference to our lives here. We spend many weekends walking the dog and exploring the coastlines, we’ve also been lucky enough to have found good friends through the connections too! Thank you for setting up this great website!
