About Jo

Hi my name is Jo and I'm completely animal obsessed. I love all things animal and have had the chance to meet/ look after a variety of animals from foxes and deer to cats and dogs.

I'm not scared of pets whether that's a gigantic dog a snake or a small rat. I love interacting with them all.

Animals help me too it's not a one way relationship. I'm grateful for what they provide and offer.

I have experience dog and cat sitting and have my own pet cat (who now lives with my dad). I have also used the borrow my doggy app on which I have taken other peoples pets for walks. I'd love to gain even more experience looking after animals of all kinds as I truly love spending time with them and it's a skill I want to develop even further as I am naturally good at animal care and building good relationships.

I have friends who run a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre so I have met lots of weird and wonderful animals through them. I've had sleepovers discovering hedgehogs in my sleeping bag and been offered pythons to hold when coming into the house! I've played with partially sighted foxes and held numerous different pets and wildlife.

I prefer to pet sit in your home or take a dog out for walks but there is some space and a garden here for me to occasionally look after your pet at my place so that is a possibility for well trained pets. Although I can occasionally provide day time services there is no overnight boarding at mine at the moment.

What other people have said about me:

"Joanna cared for my boxer dog Oxo multiple times over the past 9 years. Both when Oxo was a puppy and a teenager. Joanna played with Oxo, fed her, hugged her and sent happy pictures and updates throughout her time caring for Oxo.

Joanna is a loving person who gave Oxo so much love and attention.

I trust Joanna and she is extremely responsible, kindhearted and caring, especially towards animals. I don't trust my dogs with many people but I do with Joanna!"

I'm excited at the prospect of meeting your pets! Hope to hear from you soon.

We would definitely choose Jo again, because she has provided exceptional care for our cat Oscar who has diabetes.

Jo was attentive and extremely caring and won Oscar's trust very quickly and understood his needs. Jo gave us regular updates, and photos of Oscar and was able to meet his needs in terms of administering insulin twice daily. We were comfortable knowing Oscar was in safe, caring hands. We are deeply grateful to her and would recommend Jo. She truly has the ability to make a magical connection with animals. Thank you!
