About The Founder

*Not Just Pets was founded August 13th 2015. The name speaks for itself, they're not just pets...they're family*

Welcome, dear friends and fellow animal enthusiasts!

Let me take you on a captivating voyage into the heart and soul of Not Just Pets—a venture that goes far beyond the conventional understanding of pets. Here, we embrace the belief that these incredible creatures are not merely pets; they are family, cherished members of our lives and hearts.

Our story begins with a remarkable young girl whose compassionate spirit was ignited by a poignant encounter. Witnessing a baby bird's desperate plea for help, she was moved by the indifference of those around her. With unwavering determination, she leaped into action, rescuing the defenseless creature from harm's way. In that transformative moment, her perspective on the world was forever altered. She vowed to dedicate her life to aiding animals of all shapes and sizes, regardless of species—a promise she has wholeheartedly kept.

Her journey has been one of ceaseless learning, immersing herself in the intricate intricacies of every living being she encountered. She delved into their behaviors, their motivations, and their unique forms of communication. This profound connection with nature, especially with those who had been wounded and abandoned, gave her an unshakeable resolve. However, life threw obstacles in her path, and at times, her dreams seemed like distant memories.

Yet, fueled by the inspiration of legends like Steve Irwin, Jeff Corwin, Cesar Millan and The Wild Thornberrys, she nurtured an unyielding aspiration: to establish a Wildlife Conservation Facility in the breathtaking landscapes of New Zealand. This sanctuary would serve as a haven for those creatures whose wounds were beyond repair, offering them solace and care.

But, dear friends, to embark upon this magnificent endeavor, we need your support.
