​About Me

My name is Laura. My love for animals started at a very early age and i could not imagine a single day without them.  I have grown up with a range of different pets from cats, dogs, rabbit, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, chickens, tortoises, Beaded dragons, fish and doves.  I also have my own pets now, two cats called Sunny and Junior, my three guinea pigs and two gold fish.

I set up Safe and Snug pet sitting services in 2014 as a wanted to provide a professional local pet sitting service, where you can get to fully know and build a close relationship with your pet sitter. I ran Safe and Snug solo which helps the animals build a close relationship with myself. This helps them to feel more comfortable and relaxed, it turn provided a relaxing and stress free experience for every one. 



Experiences 

Aquatic and reptile assistant

While i was studying i worked part time in an aquatic and reptile shop for three years gaining experience in caring for both reptiles and fish, their correct nutrition, handling techniques and breeding.

Catteries, kennels and rescue centers volunteer 

at local catteries, kennels and rescue centers gaining experience with domestic animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, goats, donkeys and ponies. I also regularly volunteered

Zoo keeper 

Once finishing university I was lucky enough to spend 4 years working as a zoo keeper at Drusillas and Marwell zoo gaining experience with a range of more exotic animals from hippos, lemurs, penguins, flamingos, raccoon's, tapirs and anteaters.  

RSPCA animal care assistant 

When i initially started Safe and Snug animal care services, I worked part time as an animal care assistant at the RSPCA stubbington ark  covering a maternity position.  Caring for the animals, giving treatment, weighing, groom, bathing, health checked,  micro-chipping, vaccinating, socializing and performing behavioral  assessments on the animals.
