Experience with animals and own pets

I adore animals and truly believe that they are part of the family!

I am so lucky to share my life with two gorgeous Shar Pei's at my dad's house and two amazing kitties at my mom's house, so it's safe to say that any fur baby is my best friend! While growing up, I have always been surrounded by animals including many cats and dogs as well as my mom's beautiful corn snake, Flame. I love spending time with animals and if you ever look for me at a social gathering, I have usually found a cat or dog and have cuddled up next to them.

I spend a lot of my time with my pets, happy to just spend time giving them attention. I have lots of experience looking after the pets and homes of my friends and family friends. I have also volunteered at Wollies, Ark Animal Centre and the SPCA.
