Hello, my name is Paula and I’m from Germany.
I moved to Paris two months ago because I’m doing a volunteering service in a retirement home for one year. Since I was a little child, I loved animals and always wanted to become an Animal Rights Activist. I grew up with cats, so learned how to take care of them and to respect them. We even raised newborn kittens at one point. I know what their needing and how to make sure everything is ok with the cats.
Furthermore, I took care of my friend’s and my neighbour‘s dog when they were going on holidays.
One of them was a puppy so I know how to be strict if it’s necessary. The other dog was a Saint Bernard Mix who had a strong pull on the leash. Since I go walking every day, it‘s no problem for me to take dogs on long walks, even when it’s not the best weather.
I can go for a walk with dogs four times per day for about 30 to 60 minutes on working days and on my days off I’m available all the time so I can go for even longer walks.
I’m living with two other volunteers who both adore animals in a house so even if I have to work (I have a lot of breaks in between where I can look for the animal) there is at least one of us at home so the animal is never alone.
Since I’m volunteering in a retirement home right next to my house, it’s no problem for me to check on the animal every hour and I have three bigger breaks during the day.
I don’t have a fixed schedule but I work 3-4 days per week. The animals are allowed to sleep in my bedroom or if there are problems in a separated room.
I have a big garden which is fully fenced. I love to adopt a dog but since I’m still a student, it would be irresponsible to have one at the moment so thank you for this opportunity for me to be around animals.
Paula has been a wonderful sitter for Halley! Not only was she very responsive and accommodating before taking care of our dog, she gave us regular got updates during Halley's stay. Pictures don't lie : Halley looked like she was in heaven. We would recommend Paula to anyone without a doubt.
Baloo a eu une très bonne expérience avec Paula qui est douce, très consciencieuse et à l'écoute des recommandations, tout comme son amie qui intervenait ponctuellement pour les balades. Elle partageait régulièrement des photos. Je la recommande sans hésiter.
