Clare has loved animals all her life. As a child she always had rabbits and horses.
Before joining Valley Vets, Clare worked for SWALEC for seventeen years.
Following this, Clare went on a dog grooming course and started her own groomers, which she ran for six years. Unfortunately, Clare had to retire from this due to a repetitive strain injury, but she still wanted to work closely with animals.
That’s when she started work at Valley Vets.
Clare didn’t have any pets when she first joined us, just after the loss of her beloved dog. However, after a few months she fell in love with and adopted two hand reared bunnies who she named ‘Nutmeg’ and ‘Spice’. Clare has since adopted another stray bunny from one of our branches, who she called ‘Betty’ and has rehomed another from Scotland, named ‘Rog’. She has just successfully bonded 'Betty' and 'Rog' who now live happily together.
Clare is known as the ‘crazy bunny lady’ of Valley Vets.
