About Chris

First and foremost I love animals of all varieties, shapes and descriptions. I was the proud owner of a beautiful Kelpie named Olly who unfortunately passed away on new years day 2019, I miss him greatly but he'll always be in my heart.

As I mentioned I'm a huge animal lover and grew up with many pets. I have been working in the pet care industry for over 20 years and I've also worked at a local animal shelter. Experience working with dogs, cats and smaller animals: rabbits, hamsters, ferrets. Have also looked after fish, turtles, chickens and budgies. Not trained to administer medication and will not take pets requiring medication.
