Experience with animals and own pets

My 2 babies are Jinx and Mischief, 2 rescues. They are 2 very different personalities.

I volunteer at a rescue shelter in PTA where walks, grooming and love is shown to these magnificent animals.

My family had 3 cats and a Jack Russell that loved digging her holes in the garden beds and followed you wherever you went - even to the bathroom!

I have had experience looking after family members', friendss, neighbours' and even co-workers' pets - small and big and love every moment of it!

Shannon came to work for us some years back but was not just an employee she became family.

She has worked for us on and off during her various pursuits and we have always welcomed her back whenever she was available, she will always have a place in our organisation.

She started out being a customer in our shop and she became so much more.

Shannon is an incredibly kind and gentle person, with a deep sense of right and wrong. She is very compassionate and loving and has risen above some major setbacks with integrity, perseverance and tenacity.

She is a beautiful person both inside and out.

I would not ever hesitate to have her in my employ - we only lost her here because she went to study further. Even during her studies, she still comes in to help us out.

Please confirm that you are not an immediate family member, romantic partner or close friend of the above person. Confirmed!

Additional notes: We have had many staff come through our doors and Shannon is one af a select few that became truly part of our business and owned her place here.

You are very lucky if she has chosen to become part of your organisation. She loves all animals and is great with children.
