CARE for Pets volunteers carrying photo ID will regularly visit the pet at the owners own home where they will provide for the requirements of the animal. Simple grooming, provide regular exercise such as walks and play, cleanup after pet, check bedding, water etc.
If the owner (our client) is required to attend hospital for treatment or respite care - short-term solutions that have been prearranged will be put in place.
Volunteers will transport a pet to a veterinary surgery or groomer and return as required.
Clients of CARE for Pets may also put a plan in place for an emergency.
All of our Pet Carers are volunteers. As more and more incapacitated people are choosing to remain in their own home - rather than move into care - we can always find something for a willing volunteer to do. Our volunteers are covered by insurance, are 'police checked' and carry photo ID - all volunteers are required to attend orientation training.
