Why US

Why Choose
Mary’s PetVilla

My Name is Mary and me and my husband run PetVilla. Being an animal lover and having pets of my own, I know just how important it is to leave your fur-Babies with someone who truly cares. Most of all, I am a very responsible & caring person and will treat your pets as if they were my own. I’m trained and certified in Pet First Aid and CPR by the PET First Aid & Training (NZ) Ltd and My Facility is approved by the AsureQuality Pet Boarding Programme.

Before moving to New Zealand, I lived in California and worked at a vet clinic, before starting my own pet care company and doing animal rescue work. I also have experience with special needs pets and administering medication (pills, liquid, ointment, and injections). My husband and I have owned cats, dogs and small animals for many years, and in 2016 we started our a Cattery on Kapiti Coast, before moving to Te Horo and re-opening as Mary`s PetVilla.
