Some of their animals are dogs, poultry, ornamental birds, a horse and cattle. Maria has studied Animal Husbandry, lived on farms and kept numerous animals and bred birds for more than 20 years so she has a lot of hands on experience. Animals are a family passion and they have rescued many animals over the years, all of whom have lived out their lives with Maria and her family.
Ally has been working as part of our team for about 16 years (it’s been so long we’ve all lost track…). Before working here she was a vet nurse, which comes in pretty handy. Ally, Lance and her daughter Mia own two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels- Ginny and Molly. They also have lots of fish, lambs, chickens, guinea pigs and a budgie. She loves the beach and her animals.

Brendan has been working in the pet industry for the past 2+ years, but has been working in a managerial role for over 8 years.
Brendan is an avid gardener! When he is not here with us at the store, he is busy in his garden at home and attending to his MANY indoor plants.
Brendan also has a mini zoo at home! (We think he is definitely working in the right place )
At home he has many, many fish (…and has very recently started his own marine tank!), two dogs named Abby and Chloe and two cats named Boofa and Saffi! We guarantee this is not the end of Brendan’s zoo though. We expect that he will have a menagerie of stick insects, hermit crabs and rabbits in the not too distant future!
