Townsville local Nicky here! I started fostering dogs in 2015 and became a dog coordinator in 2020. As a dog coordinator, I have a team of foster carers who I manage to make sure everyone is at adoption days, has their vet work up to date, any pick-ups or drop offs to appointments and meet and greets and answer any questions the foster carers have. I've had a love for animals since my first pet, a guinea pig named Ash. Knowing that I can help save animals and seeing how much they grow both physically and mentally through care and training is the most rewarding part of my role.
One case especially stands out to me as being my favourite- Peppers. She arrived in our care from Innisfail with a broken leg that we managed to save. She is so lovely, and I fell in love with her as soon as I met her.
In addition to my soft spot for cattle dogs, I am obsessed with zebras and giraffes because I think they are so beautiful with all their different stripes and spots. My days are filled as a cook, pet sitter and dog walker in addition to my role with Angel-Paws, that is until I win the lottery which I'd use to pay off my house and travel the world. But until then, you can find me going on adventures and getting a coffee with my dogs or enjoying a good Italian or Mexican meal.
