About Vanessa
Having grown up with primarily cats and dogs I have met many different personalities. When I left home I began working with rescue groups and started fostering animals that were in urgent situations (some even requiring witness relocation programs!). Through these experiences I have learnt the patience and understanding necessary for gaining an animal's trust, and I have also seen how one experience can send all that work back to the starting gate.
It brings me so much joy uncovering every animal's unique personality once they feel comfortable and really let their traits shine!
As most of the animals I have cared for have been rescues I am comfortable with more "tricky" animals and take great care making sure their needs are catered for.
Currently I am studying part-time at UNE and as the Semester comes to a close I will be available for the majority of the holiday period.
Please feel free to send me any questions, and I look forward to meeting you and your four (or three or six) legged friends!

Vanessa was wonderful! She looked after Murphy for a whole weekend and he loved her. She sent great updates and spoilt him rotten (pupachinos for Murphy!) Finding Vanessa to look after Murphy has been thr best thing!
