Testimonials

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.

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.

‘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’

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.

Thank you Share My Pet for putting me in touch with and Pip and Diamond the horse. It is wonderful to have a bit of horse time in my life. This wouldn’t have been possible without you guys. What a great service you are providing for us animal lovers. Thank you❤️ Jane Howley ❤️

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!

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.

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.

This is a great initiative and service, both for pet owners and for people who want to have companionship. My dog Panko is very sociable and love to meet new people and make new friends. He has enjoyed going out for adventures with Courtney and having a snooze at home after.
As a full-time worker, it’s nice to know I am not neglecting Panko, and providing stimulation where I can. He loves human company.

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!
