About Suzanne

Hi there, I am a Zoologist who has devoted my life to working with animals all over the world. I have always felt a house is not a home unless there is at least one beloved pet in it. I grew up with cats but always walked neighbours and friends dogs whenever I got the chance.

I lived in New Zealand for a decade where I had 3 cats and 3 chickens. When I had free time I would take my friends dog to the beach for a walk and swim with me. I spent many nights pet sitting for her dog while they were away on breaks. I have also looked after friends axolotls, rats and frogs. I have become a trusted dog and cat sitter over the years for numerous friends and family. I recently registered with DAWG to do some relief work for their animal adoption people when they need a break. I worked also in conservation of penguins and sea lions in New Zealand.

In Canada I worked as a whale warden in Vancouver Island, working with endangered orcas. I live in Kinsale in a 3 bedroom house. We have a medium size enclosed back garden.

I live with my boyfriend and would love to have more contact with animals. I am self employed as a tour guide so have a fair bit of flexibility with my working hours.

For dog owners, I go to the beach a lot so would be able to bring dogs with me if you wanted too in my car.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks, Suzanne.

I am grateful to have had Suzanne's help for my cat who was coping with kittens and could not travel with me as usual. Suzanne handled everything so well and is capable and conscientious; she is an animal lover who already has a great knowledge base. She built a good rapport with the cat who took to her and trusted her, and she sent updates and photos, calling as needed and trouble shooting - things could not have gone better, many thanks Suzanne for being so gentle and caring with Mausi!

Suzanne is very personable and communication throughout was excellent. She sent us detailed updates and pictures during the pet sitting which we really appreciated. It was the first time we had been away from Amber at night and we felt that our 6 month old puppy was in good hands. Suzanne is very caring and has a genuine love for animals. She looked after our little doggie very well with lots of cuddles, walks and play-time. We would highly recommend Suzanne
