My name is Lea Nel, I am 37 years old. I live in Potchefstroom in North West and I own a doggie parlour named Nat Snoet.
My story began two years ago when I got to follow my dream to open my own salon. Through alot of prayers and support I opened the salon in February 2018.
Since I can remember my passion has always been four legged fur babies. In 2019 the salon was really struggling because I worked alone, there was not enough money coming in for all the expenses for example rent, shampoo, shaving blades etc. I did not want to employ anyone so that I could ensure the highest quality of care for all the fur babies, but I knew I had to do something otherwise I would loose the salon.
I employed Willem that shares the same passion for the fur babies. It helped a lot and we could help more fur babies.
Whenever we have spare time we give back to our local shelter and for example we donate blankets, bedding and free grooming for the fur babies.
Then winter time business start to spiral again, but through a lot of prayers and the help from our loyal customers business is back on track.
But due to the lockdown we have not been able to work and generate an income.
Please help me keep my dream alive and to be able to open my doors again when lockdown is over.
To pay the salary of my helper and pay the rent and expenses of the salon and to keep the doors open of Nat Snoet also to assist the local animal shelters if possible.
