Hi, my name is Matina! I am currently studying Medicine in Rotterdam. I am very open and friendly and severley miss my own pets back home in Zambia. I speak a little bit of Dutch (and am learning the language). I share my apartment with roommates and we are not allowed any pets, but I would love to either house sit or even just do some dog walking. I was a volunteer for an animal organisation in South Africa (where I did my high school career) called SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and looked after several of their shelter animals as part of my volunteering. One of the pictures I uploaded here (the one with the two puppies) are two puppies that I worked with at the shelter, and helped to get adopted into family homes as pets.
I have loved animals since I was very young and have one large German Shepherd, two mixed shelter dogs at home as well as one cat. I have grown up around animals all my life and have really missed all animal contact since I moved to the Netherlands to complete my studies. My reasoning for becoming a sitter/walker on Pawshake is that I would like to interact with animals again and would love to play with your pets.
I have recently moved into a new apartment around Katendrecht. I live close to a small park, and am happy to pick up your pet to bring to this park, or any of the parks near your place of living. However, I have classes at EMC. I do have a bike and am able to travel to places close by to care for your animals. Unfortunately I am extremely busy with classes so I am sadly limited in the services that I offer! Wish you an amazing day!
If you would like to see some of m past bookings, then please visit my instagram page matina.pawshake to see my past bookings!! I just recently set it up, but I have asked permission from past bookings to show photos from my visits with their pets!
Matina did a perfect job! We definately recommend her. Next time we will book her again😊
This was our first time leaving our cat since we got her so naturally we were a little apprehensive. As soon as we met Matina we were instantly relaxed. She clearly loves and has a lot of knowledge about animals. She sent us picture updates every day and our cat clearly had a good time when we were away. Will book definitely book again
I volunteered at an animal shelter in South Africa where I helped look after their animals
