Rachel Maloney - Walkies Pet Care Professional
Hi! My name is Rachel and I am originally from UK but been in NZ for over 20 years. I have always had pets since I was a toddler and my pets have always been a big part of my family. I was lucky enough to come across Walkies when I was looking for a part time role and have been employed as a Pet Care Professional since 2011.
It is a privilege to look after people's much loved animals and I have built up great relationships with many of the furry friends. I have my pet first aid certificate and have also volunteered at the SPCA. In my spare time I love bush walking, meditation and reading. My favourite part of working at Walkies is doing the Christmas cat feeds as I get to hang out with the cats and give them cuddles and company while their family are away.
Flo Salquebre - Walkies Pet Care Professional
My name is Florian and I've been with Walkies since March 2017. I am originally from France and currently live West of Auckland.
I have grown up with many dogs and cats during my childhood. I travelled to over 25 countries all around the world and I'm now in New Zealand.
I came to NZ for an experience and since I arrived in this awesome country, I told myself "I really want to do something than I really like"! It's why I walked and I went to the animals. They are all my life, far from my families and my friends, they give me all the love than I need.
In the future, I would like to continue to work with animals, In a SPCA, veterinary assistant..... here in New Zealand? Hopefully!
On the picture, my Parent's dog Kenzy, my backpack and I, some days before I left for New Zealand (Of course, I miss her so much ).
I am very happy to be part of the Walkies team and enjoy walking and being with all the pets!
