Experience with animals and own pets

If you had to ask me what my first reaction is around animals, it is definitely to go say hello and give them a cuddle. My camera roll on my phone is 90% filled with photos of my pets and when I come home from varsity on weekends, I am so excited to see all my babies again.

I currently have 2 gorgeous rescued shelter dogs, Charlie and Simba, and 1 cat, Ginger. I can’t remember a time in my life without having grown up with animals. I love to do the 5km runs on Sundays with the shelter dogs at Wollies Animal Shelter in Pretoria or Animal Ark Centre in Fourways.

I cannot wait to meet your pets!
