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 Dutch as well (English is my mother tongue and my Dutch is not perfect). I share my apartment with roommates and we are allowed pets though don't have any of our own, but I would love to either house sit, home board 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. I usually have classes at EMC (now online due to Corona). I do have a bike and am able to travel to places close by to care for your animals.
I have had to cut down in the number of services I offer due to time constraints while juggling two studies as well as a part time job. As such I am unfortunately having to decline some requests. I wish I had enough time to look after everyone's pets but unfortunately I need to be realistic and not stretch myself too thin.
I am happy to look after a variety of animals.
House visits: I typically pass by in the mornings and/or evenings, depending on how many visits you request. A home visit will normally be a half-hour, but I aim to fulfill all needs in that time (cleaning litter, giving food etc.) and I am open to helping out in other ways (watering plants etc.). I do also tend to spend extra time just cuddling/playing with your pet if they enjoy that as well! When we meet up to get to know each-other then I am always happy to answer more questions.
Overall, I wish you an amazing day and hope to meet both you and your pets one day!
Matina is amazing ! She stayed with my puppy while I was at work and Mio looked so happy and cared for when I would get home ! I got plenty updates during Matina’s stay - I also never had to worry and felt very sure that I’m leaving my dog in good hands . Thank you so so much !
Amazing puppy sitter ! Mio misses you
I volunteered at an animal shelter in South Africa where I helped look after their animals
