I have a passion to care and look after all animals and have a long history of working towards my goal of working in the animal care industry. While still at school I volunteered at Blackbutt Reserve for twelve months where tasks included food preparation, feeding and cleaning of animal enclosures for a variety of captive animals. I have completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies and a Certificate III in Companion Animals and currently volunteer as a Team Leader at Noah's Wildlife Retreat where I advise other volunteers and care for alpacas, a miniature horse, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, peacocks, a variety of caged birds as well as two dogs. I would love to lavish your pet with the care and personal attention they deserve and would spend time playing, walking and loving your pet. I live in the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle area and am ready to become a minder for your pet in the familiar environment of your own home and take your dog for walks around your neighbourhood with every care as if they were my own.
