New Owner of SPC and owner of Malls Pals


Ruth has an affinitive concern for all things animal related, from volunteering in animal charities and free running with guide dogs, it was a natural choice to be able to work closely with animals.

If she's not working with animals then Ruth and her sister Becky (also part of the team) are working on their property business.


Ruth is hard working, meticulous and passionate about animal care. She spends her free time gardening, hiking, going to the gym, exploring the woods with her husband, little boy and her dog Max.




With a love for nature, and volunteering at animal sanctuaries, looking after furry, feathery, scaly and slimy friends alike she naturally stemmed towards a career in caring for them. 

She is a passionate animal rights activist and enjoys exploring Bristol thriving vegan food scene with a furry friend in tow. 

Becky spends her spare time competing in dance contests and shows with other women known as Latin Gems.

Emily has a 1st class honours in Zoology, Masters in Palaeobiology and a distinction diploma in animal management. She is also currently working as a junior ecologist and is the co-founder of Severn Wildlife Rescue.

Not only is Emily an extremely motivated and hardworking person, she is also naturally friendly and her compassion towards all things animals and nature truly shines through! 

When she's not rescuing animals, she's climbing rocks as she's a very experianced climber.



Things you need to know: prefers dogs to people, has a soft spot for timid and shy dogs.


Lynnette is our dog geek, reading up on all things dog related and often volunteering at Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, at some of their awesome events.

Things you wouldn’t know: Lynnette owns a successful vintage clothing company called @lovelysvintage , and writes for well known magazines about all things beauty and celebrity!

Where will you most likely find her: in Leigh Woods with her two mud loving Spaniels, Rusty and Evie. And, if she isn’t in the woods she’s probably headed home to give them a bath! Or at the gym, enjoying yoga or Pilates!

Evie has the most calm energy, which is perfect for all the pets in our care!


She has spent most of her working life caring for people of all ages, after studying Psychology at university. However, since a young age, she has had an array of different pets and whilst living in Berlin for the past six years, often enjoyed pet sitting for her friends. 


As well as this, Evie works in child care and is establishing her own Reiki practice, including sessions for animals too.

Feel free to enquire about Reiki with Evie and we can put you in touch. Her instagram page is @reiki_with_evie




Things you need to know: Steph has grown up on a farm, is a mum of two human children, one tiny teacup Yorkshire Terrier, Keisha, and one soon to be huge yellow lab Simba.

Things you wouldn’t know: Steph is also a passionate teacher, delivering educational workshops in schools to children and young people on issues such as drugs awareness, mental health, anti bullying, violence and weapons. She’s also a yogi!

Where will you most likely find Steph: this could be one of many places! Training for a triathlon (she covers some serious steps on her walks), or possibly at the yard with her pony obsessed daughter, or marching the entire family (horses, humans, dogs and all) out on an adventure no matter the weather…!

Since my dog Priscilla, a fluffy white four-legged pillow or better known as Bolognese breed came into my life, my heart had an epiphany. Since then, my love towards all animals, dogs in particular, arised more and more.


When I am in company of dogs, I feel good, that's all. It's like the habitat I need. And I am able to give back love to them, lovely and cheeky beasties. I come from Firenze and I love lots of genres of music, I sing in 2 different projects having gigs around, I love relaxing watching movies, series, reality shows. Shopping, of course. Second-hand markets events are like Heaven. I love FOOD (I cannot betray my Italianity).


I love travelling, visiting cities and villages and the English cottages. And of course I love walking in the Nature, exercising the 5 senses.





Things you need to know: Katie has lots of experience with cats and dogs, she also (not so secretly) prefers dogs to humans, and has grown up with and owned different breeds, as well as fostering, with the hope to be a forever home for one some day! She has a soft spot for Staffies, and will forever miss her Molly.

Things you wouldn’t know: Katie has worked with young children in the past, helping those in particular with special needs. She is super hands on, and is a natural carer… if you go on a walk with her you’ll notice she calls them all ‘her babies’ (she probably doesn’t notice she’s doing it) 

Where will you find Katie: chasing after her little wild child son who is her absolute world, rounding the family up and spending time with her friends!
