Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up around animals and I have a deep love and passion for being around and caring for animals. I've always had dogs around me. From a young age I have been passionate about animals. I always look forward to family trips to the Kruger National Park and the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve.

I have always wanted to work with animals, and I have found ways to do this through volunteering at the Animal Anti-Cruelty League close by and helping out at Johannesburg Equestrian Centre. Growing up my family has consisted of dogs, a rabbit, birds, a hamster, fish, cats and more dogs! I have also owned a horse whom I love very dearly. I currently have two dogs, a husky mix and a cockapoo who are both energetic and love attention!

I have a lot of experience with horses- grooming and giving them as much love as I can! I love being around animals and I am always happy to take care of my neighbours’ furry animals when they're away. I am very excited to meet your kids and form new bonds!
