Ricki lives in Cape Town and is a pilot by profession. She had her own charter company which she has put on ice to be a full time wife and mother. Ricki fell in love with Labradors when she rescued her Buddy off Gum tree and was appalled that no one even cared who she was or did any checks on her. She got involved in Rescue shortly after that. She has 2 Labradors – both rescues and a Schnauzer as well as 2 rescue cats, a goldfish, hamster and a tortoise. She is married to Avron and has three boys, Jacob, Levi and Judah and a daughter Goldi.
