Hi I’m Nikki, pack leader at Pressplay Pets!
When my beautiful pets Corey and Morticha passed away just three months apart in 2012, I was devastated. Because of them I started my blog Pressplaypets.com, initially it was a creative space for me to write about them. The blog has since grown to provide health & care, news, reviews & personal accounts of unconditional love & at times heartfelt pain of pet parenting.
Like most animal enthusiasts, my personal pet experience and passion was formed as a young child where my family were always surrounded by a variety pets. I am now a very proud mumma to two beautiful Papillons; Amber and Indy along with one loud Rainbow Lorikeet named Ralph.
My passion for all things pets has grown over the years; I have spent many hours in veterinary clinics and specialist hospitals with my own pets, educating myself on breeds, natural animal care, behaviour, collecting donations for rescue groups, meeting rescuers and animal care professionals whilst also volunteering my time as adoption counsellor for an animal shelter and adoption events. I can spend hours just talking to people about their pets.
Adopting a pet is not a matter of first in best dressed. It can be both time and emotionally consuming and even a frustrating experience for some. Rescue groups (and reputable purebred breeders) are not about adopting out a pet to the first person who applies; and rightly so. There are already far too many animals surrendered to shelters and rescue groups, many as a result of impulse buy or poor choice. My aim is to be a solution in reducing these outcomes.
Based on specific criteria, I will speak to rescue groups, shelters, private rescues/surrenders and screen potential candidates on your behalf. Like all successful matches; it’s about personality fit! I am always keeping an eye out for available rescue pets of various ages, breeds, sizes, and personality types.
Through my devotion to animal rescue along with personal and professional experience I will help you complete your family through pet adoption; one pet at a time.
