  • Description


    I live on six acres on the mighty Fraser River approximately an hour and a half east of Vancouver, B.C. I am surrounded by beautiful mountains in a valley that lends itself to hiking, camping and a wonderful laid back life. I run a small dog and cat boarding kennel which services clients from all over B.C. and Alberta. My furry family is two large lab/hounds, shitzu/Sheltie and Monkey my cat. I have two horses, laying hens and usually have a couple pigs, calves. In the fall I do a couple hundred broiler chickens (eating chickens). I try to live as organically as I can but my workload is heavy so cheat all the time. I have a small cabin on property that is great for a couple. Would love to have someone that likes to cook, loves animals (as I do dog rescue also), and loves to be outside. My home is your home while you are here.
