About Me

My name is Robyn Battis and I’d like to thank you for visiting the Happy at Home Pet Care Website. After 35 years of teaching, I decided I needed a change in my life. Being a homeowner and pet lover I knew, from experience, how difficult it can be to leave your home unattended and pets in a kennel, so I decided to start up Happy at Home Pet Care. I founded Happy at Home Pet Care with the goal to provide personalised care for pets in their own home and peace of mind to their owners.

I understand the concerns that pet and homeowners face when trusting someone else to provide care when they can’t be there. I fully appreciate that you do not know me and that having a stranger come into your home for the first time is nerve-racking. To put your mind at ease, I invite you to ask me lots of questions at the initial consultation.

You are welcome to call any of my previous clients as references, and I will provide a list upon request. A number of testimonials are available here. Feel free to make any enquiries about me that you feel necessary! I would like to build a trusting relationship with you. Most clients do feel completely at ease after the first or second service, and hopefully recommend me to others with enthusiasm.

I have owned and loved animals all my life and have a great respect for them. I have always had cats and dogs and currently “own” a sheep that was a gift from a netball team that I coached. We have also had birds, fish, goats and hermit crabs. I admit that I am reluctant to look after spiders, snakes and other reptiles but have done so.

I was a member of the Unweaned Kitten Rescue Organization. As a member of this Organization, I hand raised stray and abandoned kittens (the youngest being 7 hours old) for the twelve years. Obviously, the aim was to home these babies in the best possible homes, though a couple have managed to find permanent residence with me! Currently I am a member of All Breeds Canine Rescue Inc and foster dogs looking for a forever home.

Selecting just the right pet sitter for the care of your pets and home is one of the more important decisions you will make. At Happy at Home Pet Care, my goal is to make sure that your plans don’t get cancelled and your pets don’t go uncared for. I take my responsibilities very seriously: safety and quality of care are always my top priorities.

ABC Rescue aims to maintain a healthy and responsible management plan for canines that have been displaced from their homes. They place all of our dogs into loving foster homes. They place the highest importance on enabling them to be happy and healthy in a loving foster home from the moment they arrive. They’re dedicated foster carers help the canines to adjust to their new life whilst their team organise all necessary veterinary work to be carried out.
