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!!!

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.

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

This is such a great initiative run by the loveliest people! We have so much fun with Muppet and Snout and you can tell they enjoy it too When we get our own dog we will definitely share them as we don’t want them to be bored and lonely while we’re at work!  Dec 2018

We are now the proud owners of our own little dog called Pipi, and we love sharing her via Share My Pet. It brings such joy into her life. and it’s also great to know she has somewhere safe and fun to go when we are away on holiday. Once you have established the relationship between you and the pet carer, you can relax knowing your pet is with a person that loves and knows her well.  Feb 2020

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.

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.

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!

“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.
