 Newsletter Written by Mikey (K9)..

Hazel has worked at the kennels since Jan 2003 where she began walking the dogs and progressed to become Kennel manager in 2008.

Despite no formal qualifications, it was an easy appointment for the committee to make, because of her experience and “can do” attitude. Hazel has been married for 26 years to Phil and they have 2 teenage children Daryl & Joanne. Has spent 6 years in Saudi Arabia, and South Africa for 2 years to follow her husband’s occupation in I.T. They returned to the UK in 1999 before moving to Tenerife in June 2002 bringing 2 of their cats with them. One of them Sassy, is now 13 years of age and has 10 other cats and a small dog Lucy for company. Hazel has fostered several cats for K9 over the years.

Hazel’s passion is badminton and plays in the Tenerife League, finishing third in the mixed doubles with partner Tony. Enjoys reading, loves gardening, growing fruit and vegetables and is a dab hand at making novelty cakes.

Her pet hates are housework and children who constantly leave plates and cups lying around!
Hazel loves her work at the kennels which is evident from the positive and polite way she conducts herself. K9 is very fortunate to have a manager who sets a good example to the team who work with her and is well respected by her colleagues. Once the kennels are closed for the day, she will often be called to investigate an abandoned dog or cat somewhere. A good egg.


Check out K9 website and if you would like to visit the kennels to walk a dog or adopt - here are the directions

K9 is at Las Chafiras on the San Miguel side of the motorway. Follow the San Miguel road for 400 metres, you will see the First Impressions Building on your right hand side. After a further 300 metres you will see a road off to the right. Continue on this road for approx a mile. The kennels are on the right on a bend. Car parking opposite the entrance.
