Who are our clients?

Our clients are loving pet owners who want what is best for their pets but sometimes struggle to provide the best care because of age, infirmity or disability. With a little assistance from one of our volunteers, their pets can remain happy and healthy to continue to provide companionship and love.

 

Typically, our clients are those over 65 years of age, palliative-care patients of any age and people with disabilities who are unable to pay for support for their pets. We do not offer animal sitting services when someone is on holidays.

 

While all services and transport provided by POOPS volunteers do not incur a fee, clients are liable for all costs associated with veterinary fees, boarding fees, grooming and the like. To assist our clients further, POOPS can connect your furry friend to our network of discount vet, boarding and grooming services.

How we can help

Our volunteers are animal lovers who are happy to assist and value their time with their POOPs pets and pet-owners. We can help with dog walking, transportation (to vets, boarding facilities or groomers), administering medication or whatever is needed and is mutually agreed between the volunteer and pet owner. 

 

If emergency strikes and our clients need to be away from home for medical reasons, POOPS volunteers can provide peace of mind by transporting the pet to a kennel, undertaking short-term feeding in the home and ongoing regular walks, or helping to find a safe caring situation for the pet.  Please note, for safety reasons, you must already be an existing client to enlist our volunteer’s services when emergencies arise.

Our volunteers really love what they do at POOPS!

POOPS volunteers are available in most areas across the Greater Perth Metropolitan area including Yanchep, the Hills, Mandurah, Rockingham and our newest branch in Busselton. Our organisation can help with taking care of the basic needs of pets. 

  • Volunteers

    Our volunteers all have a Police background check, are vetted by our coordinators, go through our induction process and are fully insured by POOPS.

  • Dog Walking

    Dog walking is one of our most popular services. Our volunteers visit a client’s home at mutually agreed times taking into account any special needs.

  • Not just dogs

    Our services are not limited to dogs! Our volunteers help with all kinds of pets including cats, birds and even fish.

  • Trip to the vet

    Our volunteers can help ensure pets get the care they need by providing transport to the vets or other important appointments.

    If a client is away from home for an extended period, our volunteer may be able to find a sitter or provide transport to a boarding facility.
