Experience with animals and own pets

I am extremely passionate about animals of all shapes and sizes! My fur children are my happiness, from kisses in the mornings to cuddles in the afternoon they always make me smile...

My fiancé and I have five, yes five, amazing babies . We became very involved in the rescue world – SPCA, Husky Rescue Center, Underdogs SA, Wollies Animal Project - we started with homing animals, to walking dogs, cleaning kennels, raising funds and simply giving as much love to less fortunate animals as possible, we will always help where we can.

Throughout this journey we began fostering and slowly but surely our family grew from two incredible cats (Gismo & Romeo) who believe they are human, to two beautiful dogs (Angel & Teddy) who bring a lot of excitement to our lives and our little bird (Bart) who has the loudest voice in the house. We love our happy little zoo and grasp the true meaning of being responsible over beings whom don’t have voices of their own.

I would adopt more if I could, I can however be a part of other fur kids’ lives by helping their parents when they go away. It will bring me great joy to create a sense of security for pet owners when they are far away. All furkids are equal in my eyes and will always receive my full attention, love and fun whether they are my babies or not.
