Experience with animals and own pets

My family has had pets for as long as I can remember. My first dog was gifted to me on my first birthday and we shared everything, from toys, to a bed at night. Growing up, my pet family has included fish, hamsters, dogs, parrots and bunny rabbits. Animals have always played a huge role in my life. I feel that having pets from a young age has taught me a lot of responsibility as well as having respect and empathy for others (and animals).

I currently share my life with two amazing dogs, Sasha and Lincoln, who we adopted from the SPCA as siblings and are every bit as playful as they are lovable. I am a huge believer in adopting pets and giving them a second chance in a loving home .The third member of the Three Musketeers is Flopsy, my dwarf rabbit who loves to think that he is one of the dogs.

Animals and taking care of animals has always been a passion of mine and I don't know what I would do without such amazing influences in my life.

Additional Comments:

Sade was an absolute rock star!

Boris is very shy and usually just hides when anyone other than us are looking after him - but Sade had the magic touch and a day or so after we left, Boris decided to occasionally come out of hiding for a treat and a brief cuddle!

Of course - this meant that Remus got the lion's share of the attention, and I don't think he even missed us that much!

Thanks for the service which provides us with peace of mind when we are off on a break.

Sade is wonderful- and I would definitely have her look after my fur babies again.

But I have still not received a quote or invoice from StudentCo and I don’t know how to make payment??

*Note from StudentCo:

As per policy:
  • The invoice was sent shortly after this pet parent met with Sade
  • The quotation was sent before the meeting
  • .

    Incorrect contact information was provided by the client, but happily the issue was sorted out when we became aware of the issue :).
