Experience with animals and own pets

"The best therapist has four legs and fur."

I have had the privilege of having animals around me wherever I go. I have had many animals of my own and I need more fingers and toes to count them all!

I currently have one dog, Chomp, who is 11 years old and a budgie, Blu, who is 3 years old. I have previously had cats, other dogs, different types of fish (including salt water fish), bunnies (lots of them), a tortoise, quail and hamsters. One dream, which I have had since I was little, is to have my own animal rescue centre. My passion lies with animals and always will. They deserve all the love, care and attention they can get!

I have looked after many different animals for friends and family members, and every time they knew their precious beings would be in safe, loving hands when they were with me.
