Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was little, I have loved working and living with animals.

I grew up in a home always filled with pets - from dogs to fish, hamsters, rats and cats. I grew up learning how special pets are, how much of a difference they can make and how much love and joy they bring into your life.

My family has always believed in adopting rescue animals and all our fur babies have been adopted from animal shelters. I grew up with rescued Maltese Poodles, cats with no ears or tails, a now 10 year old rescued Pug called Bella, and Wilbur a pavement special who mumbles when his tummy is rubbed.

I have experience with all sorts of animals , from volunteering at FORA and Wollies as much as I possibly can to looking after my own pets, as well as my friends’ pets.

To me, pets are just furry children - they require the same amount of love, care and attention that any other child needs and this is what I will give them.
