My name is Caroline but, since I was a child, people have called me “Ellie” after ‘Ellie May Clampett” the character with all the “critters” in “Beverly Hillbillies”! My critters include dogs, cats, horses, snakes, insects, a 400kg pig and a rescue donkey to name but a few!!
I started my career working with horses and have since worked with an amazing array of animals: dogs, cats, goats, alpacas, and exotics animals like tarantulas and alligators. I have also worked in animal welfare. All up over 20 years of working with animals!
Just over 2 years ago, I gained my vet nursing qualification to compliment my working experience with animals.
Animals are sincerely my passion and I love that I can truly make a difference to an animal’s life while in our care. Whether it’s with a warm blanket just out of the drier, or a hand fed meal of cooked chicken (which is somehow always better than food in a bowl!), I love providing them with all that they could possibly need…. even if it’s just an extra pat, a kiss and a cuddle!
