Experience with animals and own pets

I have loved animals my whole life. Since a child I have had pets of my own and have always been responsible for looking after them - the fun jobs as well as the 'dirty' jobs.

I currently have a house-full of animals which include 4 dogs, 4 cats, 2 cockatiels, 1 African Grey and a rat. Currently I do agility training with one of my dogs and have learned so much. I have previously owned rabbits, Guinea pigs and fish.

I have done volunteer work at the SPCA as well as at BARC (Benoni animal rescue center). I enjoyed these experiences and have learned a lot, from normal day to day chores to be done at the SPCA to the out reaches at informal settlements and caravan parks with BARC.

I love helping animals in need and this has inspired me to one day become a veterinary nurse. I will start my studies in 2020.

I have done pet sitting in the past and really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to meeting new furry/feathery/scaley pets and their owners!
