Services Provided

  • Dog walking – Whether you need our assistance on a longer-term basis or because of some temporary health problem or incapacity, our volunteers are happy to help out by walking your dog. The volunteer will come to your home to meet you and your dog and when a degree of trust has been established between pet and volunteer, will take it for its walks. Dogs who are not walked regularly put on weight and become prone to a number of health issues that can easily be avoided.
  • Animal feeding – If you are an existing POOP’s client and have a short spell in hospital coming up, we may be able to come to check on and feed your animals in your own home (in summer, this may be a shady backyard or on the verandah). You can attend to your own health and medical needs knowing that your pet is being well looked after.  Longer term pets may need to be boarded.  This cost to be born by the owner.
  • Transport – We can provide transport to take your pet to your local vet for a check-up or to a boarding facility if you are planning to be in hospital for a longer period than the  2-3 days it can be fed in its own home during an owner’s absence.
