"Since I took up the role of foster coordinator at the SPCA Canterbury back in November 2010 Jill Dickie has been one of our foster parents. In this time she has fostered a combination of different animals for different reasons including Mums with newborns, Orphaned kittens, amputees and even a puppy that had its eye removed. I will continue to call on Jill as a fosterer with no hesitation and have every confidence in her abilities."Victoria Crawford
"I love my little monsters 100% through all their good and bad moments, and it's reassuring to know there is a group of like- minded people here who will care for my babies when I'm away on business. I love the caring friendly service, and the value for money in seeing how happy my dogs are when I return!"Suzanne, Chch
"Jill is a lady full of wisdom and knowledge of animals. I have known Jill for several years and I have seen how she works with animals. She is always professional and knows the animals temperament, feeding, grooming, and care that is needed, and will always give 100% to the job of loving, caring, and protecting all animals; whether domestic, wild, or a farm animal. You could even say Jill is a horse whisperer!
I would personally trust Jill and Monsterminders with our own little monsters as she can see if an animal needs vet care and would act fast, and this has helped in her work at the SPCA."Melinda Newport
"Thank you very much for looking after my cat, Puss. She is getting old now (like me) and needs a bit of extra special care. I was able to go away and not stress or worry. Jill provided an excellent professional service and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending or using her again in the future. Once again thank you very much Monsterminders."Sharon & Puss
"We have known Jill for some time through her involvement with the welfare of Kaimanawa horses, both as an owner of rescue horses and as our Canterbury Representative. She has a genuine caring personality and a very open friendliness and calmness to her that both people and animals respond to. Her knowledge, skill, and preparedness to continually improve her abilities is an inspiration, and we would have no hesitation in referring her and the Monsterminders service to others."Marilyn & Elder Jenks

"I have worked with Jill for the past two years. During this time she has been assisting me to manage and supervise 32 horses we have in care. Recently Jill has taken over full management of this supervision. I have always found Jill to be 100% professional and reliable, going above and beyond when the situation demands. Her equine care knowledge is excellent and Jill is very sensible."Sara Elliott-Warren

"I have known Jill Dickie since 2010. We worked together at the SPCA, as the clinic I work for does the majority of the SPCA work. Jill and I were involved in weekly vetrounds, specific cases through ambulance calls and day to day SPCA work.
From the outset, Jill was always straightforward and honest, and had the animal's needs and welfare foremost in her decision making. Throughout our time working together, Jill also fostered numerous cats and kittens with great results. I am excited about Jill's new business venture, and with her positivity and excellent animal skills, I am sure it will be a wonderful success."Emily Ensor
