Experience with animals and own pets

My love for animals started from a very young age. Having grown up in a small farming community in the Northern Cape, our family always had various kinds of pets and animals.

I was fortunate enough to have had the privilege of owning and caring for all kinds of wild and domesticated animals. I have had Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Foxes, Meerkats, Bunnies, Hedgehogs, Springbuck, a Kudu, Sheep, Horses and a Tortoise.

As you can see from my long list of pets, animals have always been a major part of my life. I always enjoy making new furry friends. And I have always jumped at the opportunity to take in injured animals. Being able to do this is what I miss the most of living in the NC.

Currently my husband and I have 3 furry children of our own, 2 Dachshunds and a Basset hound.

My love for and experience with animals, make me the obvious choice for looking after your pet children while you are away from home.
