OWNER & CO-FOUNDER & VETERINARIAN
Dr Danielle Vinay
Dr Danielle Vinay (Dr Dani) grew up in Johannesburg and Durban, where her love for animals showed from a young age. Her passion for animals is not limited to small companion animals; she is a huge lover of horses and wildlife. Dr Dani first acquired a BSc in Animal Science at the University of Stellenbosch with honours in nutrition. She later went on to study BVSc Veterinary at the University of Pretoria. Even after ten long years of studying, she will continue to look for every opportunity to grow her knowledge. Dr Dani feels that her most significant strength is compassion for animals and this compassion stems from wanting to understand animals and wanting them to be understood. Her goal is to be a voice for the voiceless and help those who can’t help themselves.

She has completed her NQF 3 in marketing and previously worked at Bryanston Veterinary Hospital for the past 3 years. Hannah is that “crazy” person you see stopping traffic to rescue a stray. She adores animals and has 3 rescues of her own. If she had a farm, she’d probably have a hundred! Hannah loves reading, hiking, deep house and anything that gets her adrenalin pumping. When she’s not spending time with close friends, she’s with family.
