Since a young age, I have always loved animals (my friends would always joke around and say I love animals more than people, ha!).
I can remember begging my mother for a dog when I was little. Years went by and she finally let me have one - he goes by the name of Patches. Patches is a mixed breed (brak) who is a very energetic dog and is now 7 years old.
Initially, my mother and I planned to adopt a dog, but there were problems with the process. My cousin told me that there were dogs for sale in my area so we bought my dog for only R70! I always tell myself that all my future pets would be adopted and I'd like to adopt the unhappiest/loneliest dog at the shelter so that I could give them a good life.
I have also had cats in the past and have looked after stray cats who for some reason always came to our house. One particular cat - who we named Tomy - would always come to me for food and soon grew very comfortable around us and our home, so we took care of him as our own.
I am passionate about helping and taking care animals.
