I have known Fiona for several years, and can attest to her professionalism and compassion for all animals. She is incredibly humble, but she is very accomplished as a volunteer in the animal therapy community in Auckland with her Dobermann, Plum. The duo volunteers their time and talent at elder care communities, local school reading programs, SPCA events and causes, and were selected from a competitive pool to volunteer at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland.
Perhaps her skill as a caregiver to furry family members is best displayed in her red Dobermann, Plum. To meet Plum is to meet a joyful, obedient, and intelligent Dobermann. Plum originated from one of the top breeders in the country, and has truly excelled as breed ambassador, therapy dog, agility dog, and companion animal in Fiona’s care.
Many times, people turn to Fiona for her advice regarding canine care, as she has a community of support in her veterinary specialists, veterinary nurses, and trainers. I have often asked for her wise counsel in various animal questions, including canine bone cancer, as we have both experienced this heartbreaking journey. Fiona has extensive knowledge with special needs dogs, and approaches them with a particular level of kindness and love. Without her knowledge and compassion towards my dogs and me, I would have been totally lost.
There is no one who I would trust more than Fiona to care for my dogs.
