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.
We have a social little dog who is loving the extra attention he gets from being ´Shared’. It’s such a simple concept and it is a definite win/win for the pets, owners and sharers. He has been getting extra walks and has now got a home from home when we go away. Thank you!
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!
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.
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.
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 ❤️
‘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’
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!
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.
“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.
