Animal Shack is a family owned business based in Victoria Point Qld. Catherine Hewett is the owner and director of Animal Shack. Catherine is a qualified Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience in the Pet industry.
She started her career in Katherine NT as a trainee Vet Nurse studying via correspondence, when her now husband Matthew went there to work as an electrician repairing the town after the devastating 1998 flood. They stayed on long after the water receded and the town was rebuilt, with Catherine returning to QLD twice yearly to sit exams.
In 2001 they returned to South Australia to marry before settling in QLD where Catherine quickly found work as head vet nurse in an inner city clinic. Here she gained further knowledge taking puppy pre-school classes.
Whilst on Maternity leave in 2004, Catherine began volunteering for animal rescue groups such as RSPCA and wildlife group ONARR.
Her Family successfully cared for an orphaned Wallaroo for 9 months before it was released back to the wild.
Catherine returned to the work place in 2007 in the retail pet industry. Catherine soon became aware of the high costs to families pet ownership can bring, but was also very aware of the profit these retail stores were making.
Catherine saw an alarming increase at pets being abandoned because people could simply not afford to keep them. These animals, unable to be re-homed, were euthanized.
In bid to provide customers the ability to care for there pets without compromising family needs animalshack was born!
