Have loved animals all my life, felt an affinity with them from a young age – which was when I started to loose faith in the human race! Became veggie at 13, involved in animal rights since age 14, vegan and hunt sab from 1988. Travelled / backpacked around Greece, Egypt, India, Nepal at 20 and from then on had a fascination with countries in the Middle East & Central Asia... their cultures, food, music and most of all the animal welfare situation – especially the strays, street animals and working animals.
Started working / training as a vet nurse in 1994 in between voluntary work for animal campaigns groups, wildlife rescue, fostering/rehoming and active on demos.Qualified as a VN in 1999/2000 and since then have been a self-funded volunteer for animal charities in: Spain, Egypt, Morocco, Sri Lanka - mainly helping small welfare groups working for stray dogs, feral cats, street animals, pets of poor local people and working donkeys, horses, mules + camels.Filmed + documented the dire cruelty and suffering of live-exported and slaughter of sheep in Greece and of cows slaughtered in Sri Lanka.
Now dedicating time to help promote some excellent small animal welfare charities in the hope that they get the recognition and support they genuinely deserve.
Long time no see my friend.I hope all is well with you. I've been very sick and then we've had a lot of severe storms and downed trees so no power. Thanks for helping rescue strays. God Bless you my friend. Hope you ate some cake and had a Blessed day. Huggles across The Big Pond from me and old Dottie sends woofy smooches. xoxo
