Megan's furry clients.
Hi, I'm Megan!
Hi, my name is Megan.
I currently hold a Degree in Zoology and Animal Bio-science and will be progressing to an Honours Degree this semester. Animals are my passion and have been for most of my life. I have loved animals, big and small, for as long as I can remember. Whilst attending college, studying HND Animal Care, I completed a two week volunteering project in South Africa which saw me blessed with the opportunity to work with all manner of animals, including Lions, Elephants and Servils (wild African cats) and it remains one of the greatest experiences of my life thus far.
I currently volunteer for the charity 'Second Chances German Shepherd' which focuses on the rehoming and fostering of German Shepherds (GSD) across Scotland.
The majority of my life has revolved around all things four legged and furry, however dogs have always held a special place in my heart and this led to me working in kennels and for various dog charities. When I was 14 years old I rescued my first dog, a Greyhound named Rolf and this was not to be the last. I have rescued several more dogs over the years and now have two dogs of my own, a German Shepherd and a Jack Russell Terrier, which I adore.
My goal is to work as a Companion Animal Behaviorist and strive to improve the lives of pets everywhere. I currently live in Paisley, near several scenic walking routes which are ideal for excercising dogs. I walk my dogs 3-4 times a day, with at least two of these outings lasting over an hour when the weather permits. These are my favourite points in the day as I love being outdoors and spending time with my girls.
I have been looking after animals from a very young age, I personally owned fish, hamsters, a rabbit and dogs. I have also volunteered at stables, for greyhound charities and most recently working with big cats in South Africa.
I have also had several animal related jobs including working in a pet shop, boarding kennels and grooming salon.
Recently received a Degree in Zoology and Animal Bioscience. I also hold a NC, HNC and HND in Animal Care, this means that I have studied, in depth, all aspects of care for domestic animals from dietry requirements, grooming and healthcare issues. Througout these courses I also completed many practical assessmets working with various animals from sheep to dogs to budgies.
