Experience with animals and own pets

Having grown up on a plot, I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by animals since before I can remember. Currently, I have 3 dogs and 3 cats and I love them all to bits and pieces! We have 1 Rottweiler, 1 Labrador and 1 Dachshund...who happens to be the pack leader!

I am extremely passionate about animals, and planned to study veterinary science until I realised I was far too soft-hearted for the tough decisions I'd have to make. My love for animals has never subsided, though!

I love to spend my spare time volunteering at animal shelters. I have spent time at both Wetnose in Pretoria as part of a RAG project for my residence as well as at FORA in Krugersdorp. I love to see the fur kids light up with a little TLC!

Alexis was outstanding!

I could see that Tylo was spoilt rotten and had a wonderful time.

She took such great care of him as though it was her own Fur Baby.

I actually think he was more excited to see her than me!

I would recommend Alexis without hesitation to anyone.

She is friendly, keeps up to date with happenings and was a real pleasure.

She is such a star and I would definitely like to make use of her service again.
