Testimonials

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.

‘Having recently moved to Nelson we heard about Share My Pet and joined up in order to arrange pet sitting for our 2 cats while we went away on holiday. Our kitties prefer their creature comforts and it was just great to be able to connect to someone reliable in our community we could trust. One cat has medical issues and we were very happy with the care she received. Both cats were well looked after, we can highly recommend Share My Pet’

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!!!

I highly recommend Share my pet. I met a wonderful woman who helped me out with my horse for a while and I still keep in touch with her even though she got a horse of her own now. It’s an amazing initiative that can connect people with animals without having to own one. Perfect if you want to trial animal ownership, try out different pets, or simply if you aren’t in a position to own one just yet. Works for everyone and love that the founders are passionate animal owners with lots of advice to share.

It’s so awesome! I was really missing dogs when I moved cities – what better way to meet new people and animals than using Share My Pet! Lili and Dave are really caring and helped me with my profile when I was having trouble.
Special thanks to Jenny and Panko (her gorgeous corgi) who have welcomed me and encouraged me to go walking and exploring with Panko. It’s so nice to be able to have that dog companionship!
I would absolutely recommend this to those who are missing their pets or are looking to have a great excuse to get out and exercise with a furry buddy.
Updated to add: I feel like I’ve not only found furry friends using this site, but also people friends, which is so awesome because I’d moved to a new city and it’s a great way to meet people who share a love of animals

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!

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.

“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.

Such a great idea! I have been missing having a furry friend while I was travelling and this was the perfect opportunity not only to get to have some time with an animal but also to meet their lovely people too! Definitely recommend to those travelling, new to an area or to anyone just not ready or able to commit to a pet in their life full time!

This is a wonderful site especially for dog owners and dog lovers. I recently lost my dog and wasn’t ready yet for another puppy but did want a dog in my life. Lili and Dave and share my pet have helped me connect with some wonderful dogs and their owner close to me and now I am able to get to go on dog walks again and get doggy love without the huge commitment. This is a wonderful concept for everyone, especially the animals who get even more love and attention in their life.
Thanks to all people and dogs on share my pet that had been part of my healing process.
