Kerry McDonald

In 2010, Kerry decided to  move to Cape Town from the Eastern Cape  with her Boerboel (and love of her life) Tembo.

Once in Cape Town, she briefly continued with her I.T career, but soon realized that life is too short and made the decision to follow her childhood passion for dogs.

She joined the Pet-i-ket team in 2013 and as of March 2019, she now owns Pet-i-ket. *hooray!!* 

Her other passion is travel. Wherever she visits whether local or international, she always  befriends a dog or three…
