Riekie Fourie
Owner

Estelle’s daughter Riekie literally grew up with Animal Travel and lovingly refers to the business as her sibling. She joined the company, fresh out of high school, as a driver. She slowly worked her way through the ranks is now the business’ general manager.

Riekie says the happy ending when a pet gets to his/her destination is what makes her job worthwhile. If it wasn’t for Animal Travel, she’d probably be doing something else related to furry friends. “I’m bored when I’m not surrounded by animals,” she says. She isn’t joking. Her home is filled with five cats, four dogs, three chickens and two fish.

Vaughn Kukard
Operational Manager

Vaughn started with Animal Travel as a driver, before working his way up to operations manager. “The more work I take on, the more I enjoy my job,” he says. Vaughn loves helping people and reuniting families. He thrives on feedback from clients, many of whom he’s been working with for years.

While winters are for staying cozy with his wife, French bulldog, three Dachshunds, two Cats and two African Grey’s, he really flourishes in summer. When the weather’s good you can catch Vaughn exploring day trails, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
