Experience with animals and own pets

With five dogs, 3 cats, 2 budgies and an African grey in our home there is never a dull moment! All with a special story of how we got them through adoption and rescue. Growing up with avid animal loving parents we’ve had everything from rabbits, horses and goats to tortoises, hamsters and (one of my favorite) foster puppies.

My love for animals has just grown exponentially over the years and I can’t picture a life one day without them. I have without a doubt I’m going to love your fur babies and will take great care of them when you’re away.
