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.
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 ❤️
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!
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!
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!
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.
Share My Pet is a wonderful pet lover connecting site! Helping dog owners to find people would love to care for their pet while they’re away for a day or few hours is excellent! Great way to bring the dog/pet loving community together! My boy loves to spend time with his Aunty Lili and his furry sisters 🐶🐶🐶🐶😊
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.
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!!!
“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.
