StudentCo Pet Sitter Profile

Name of sitter: Montene C

Area: Centurion (Eco Park) + Pretoria (Hatfield)

Course of study: Bachelor of Film Arts

Approved StudentCo pet sitter since: November 2016


Experience with animals and own pets

I grew up with many different animals, including dogs, cats, hamsters, chameleons, various birds, rescue rats and snakes. I feel like I was born with the love and compassion for animals!

Currently, I share my life with Butch, a Rottweiler x Alsatian, as well as Toffel, a toy poodle and Scotty T the corn snake.

About two years ago, I developed a huge love for rats and have been involved with fostering and rescuing them. I also try and help out at various SPCAs when I have time. My biggest dream is to become a Wildlife Documentary Cinematographer and be a voice for the animals!
