Experience with animals and own pets

Pets have and always will play a huge role in my life. Since I can remember, there have always been animals of some kind surrounding me. I grew up in a small town in Mpumalanga and was honoured enough to have a variety of animals in my life through the years.

Currently, I have one lovable dog named Wolfie, a fiercely independent cat named Jessie and two amazing horses named Yster and Vonk. I am also a bird breeder for international exports and there are currently a large number of feathered friends in our backyard.

I have looked after pets in my area while their owners were on holiday and I also volunteered at Wokutakula Wildlife Education for a month where I worked with both farm animals, wildlife, exotic animals and pets.
