About Sam

Love animals in general. Would always bring home the stray here and there as a young girl.

In 1992 I done study with (ICS) International Correspondence School - Animal Care.

Background - Safe & effective handling - Basic First Aid - Terminology - Anatomy of animals - Arthrology - Blood vascular system - Digestive system - Genito urinary system - Endocrine system - Nervous system - Bandaging & wound dressing - Animal shows - Hygiene & sanitation - Other companion animals - Breeds of dogs & cats - Signs of health & diet - Grooming & manicure - Animal foods -

Always wanted to be a veterinarian or a nurse, I have worked in a veterinary Hospital, but found it very emotional at times. I am more for saving lives than taking part in destroying life, hence why I am doing what I love, and that is taking care of all animals.

I have 4 cats, Billy, Peggy Sue, Bonnie and Sascia. Billy was adopted as a young kitten, Peggy Sue (grey moggy) is my adopted sweetheart, Bonnie was born into our family of cats and Sascia (Rag Doll) was going to be sent to the pound. Too many people had a go at trying to calm her down, she was very scared, and not good with lots of people.

Dozer the old English Staffy, and Raj the Australian standard Poodle have been my two latest pets. I stayed out with them for a week whilst their human was away with work.

Rusty the miniature poodle, and Zac the Labradoodle are best friends, their human often goes away on holidays.

My house is on stilts, fully fenced, big backyard area to play, explore, and sleep. Animal friendly zone really. I have 4 cats, so any dogs that are cat friendly are most welcome. Recently looked after dogs, cat, birds, chickens, turkey, rats, and a pig.

Our two puppies seemed to have a wonderful stay with Sam and her pets. Sam's house is set-up really well for the dogs comfort and well-being. You can tell Sam really loves animals and cares about the service she provides. We would definitely use Sam again!
