Animal Welfare Assistant

Hi! I’m Nicholas, I have finally found my calling here at the sanctuary! After a few years of working in different jobs I was really feeling that I hadn’t found a lifelong career. I began thinking about things that I really enjoy and could turn into a career – I love spending time in the outdoors and have an affinity for animals, having had a menagerie of rehomed animals when I was growing up!
I grew up in the village so I have visited the sanctuary on many occasions, and when I heard of an opportunity to work here I jumped at the chance. Since then, I haven’t looked back and I love every moment being here. I love being outdoors, keeping active, and most of all I love the animals.
It’s very difficult to choose a favourite animal as they are all incredible, but if I had to choose one I would say Lily the Shetland Pony. She always manages to make me smile no matter what, and she is always willing to have a cuddle.
