Tegan
Tegan
Crematorium Coordinator

I was born with an immense love of animals. I was lucky enough to work at my family’s adoption centre from a young age, adopting out pound animals or privately surrendered pets. I have also worked with horses most of my life. As with dogs and cats, horses play a huge part in our lives and therefore need the same level of caring service we provide for small animals. My free time is spent with my daughter and husband, either riding our horses, hiking with the pooch or lazy days in front of the TV. I have 3 cats, 1 dog, 1 rabbit and 2 horses. My pets are family, and family means everything to me.
