Kennel Hand

Wiki Te Rata is a vet nurse in training with 3 years of experience working in the industry. Having received her certificate II in animal studies straight after graduating high school, she is now currently undergoing her Vet Nursing Certificate. Wiki demonstrates her love and compassion towards animals by bringing home strays in the hope of finding new loving owners. Although a dog lover, she recently nursed a 3-week old stray kitten, Raven, to health. Raven the tortie cat, is perfectly healthy and living permanently with Wiki. Raven adores attention but most of all food! Wiki has always loved travelling and thrill seeking adventures. Having enjoyed sky diving, quad bike riding, and ocean diving around the world, her goal is to mix her love for travel and animals together by volunteering overseas.
