Ever wish you had a furry friend to spend time with even though you don’t own a pet? Perhaps your pet is super social and you want to find them new buddies to socialize with. Making friends with dogs and other animals has never been easier. Share My Pet can help!
Share My Pet has a growing pet sharing community right across NZ. Perfect for arranging a cuddle with a fur baby, pet holiday care or new friends for your social pooch.
Meet pet owner and pet carer Remi. Remi joined Share My Pet in 2019. Owner of a beautiful fox terrier called Rocco, she initially joined the site to make new friends for her dog. Share My Pet has given Remi the opportunity to meet and spend time with lots of other local dogs. Remi would love to own a second dog, but feels the cost of a second pooch is currently not an option for her. Pet sharing has been a great solution. Rocco benefits from socializing and playdates with a variety of other dogs. His social agenda is packed with adventure and stimulation. He’s one happy pupper who loves his furry girlfriends!
Living in Nelson, Remi has become an important part of 4 dogs lives. She is especially bonded with a little schnauzer called Izzy. Remi has Izzy over for sleepovers and holiday care at her place when her owner Beck goes away. There are lots of day hangouts and walks too.
“Making new furry friends via the Share My Pet website has been great for my dog’s socialization. We get to spend time with lots of other great family dogs and have developed a close bond with them. Rocco loves his new canine buddies!”
How pet owners can benefit from pet sharing
As a frequent traveler for work, Beck loves the peace of mind pet sharing gives her. Having a second person she knows she can leave her fur baby with when life gets busy is wonderful. Izzy gets to go on amazing adventures to the beach, on day hikes, café trips, car rides and home hangouts. An additional bonus of pet sharing is saving money on kennels and doggy day care. No further money is ever exchanged between pet owners and pet carers. When your pet is with a pet carer you know the person they are spending time with is doing it out of pure love, not money.
Find your tribe and make new friends with dogs and people
Remi is always keen to head out into nature with pups at her side. Remi has met up for pack walks with Hannah, another local pet carer. An added bonus to pet sharing has been making new friends and connecting with people who are as passionate about pets as you are. Being part of Share My Pet is like finding your tribe.
