We mainly cover the south of Sheffield and Dronfield, however we can cover additional areas if required for a small extra fee to cover the extra petrol costs.
I have a vast practical animal handling and care experience, both from looking after my own animals and dealing with various rescue animals. I have fostered dogs for rescue centers, voluntarily walked the more 'difficult' rescue dogs with issues and ran a rabbit and guineapig rescue center for 5 years, finding loving new homes for over 400 animals. My experience spans most of the usual species, as well as snakes, african pygmy hedgehogs, raccoons, skunks and foxes.
I have also undertaken an Animal First Aid course during the start of 2013, covering cats, dogs, rabbits and other small furries, which covers me for 3 years.
I do not employ anyone to work for me, all work is carried out by myself to ensure that everything is done to my own high standards and that each animal receives quality care and attention. I am sometimes assisted by my daughter who has undertaken animal care qualifications (BTEC First Diploma in Animal Care,BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management, a canine massage course and is currently half way through a HND in Animal Management) whilst working as an Animal Care Assistant at a local veterinary practice.
I am very lucky to have the fantastic Peak Vets just under 10 minutes away, with 24 hour emergency vet cover to ensure that any animals in my care can be given veterinary attention if necessary. This is of particular peace of mind to clients boarding their much loved furry friends whilst they are away, as well as having the reassurance that veterinary intervention can be obtained no matter what time of the day or night.
