When Nikki isn’t driving our mission to provide a better life for the world’s stray dog population, she can be found heading up her world-renowned florist business. Her creativity and determination has not only helped Wild at Heart become a market leading brand, it’s also the reason Wild at Heart Foundation is the thriving, meaningful and committed charity we are today.
For the first four years of the charity’s development, Nikki’s business covered all costs, as well as contributing significantly towards projects and campaigns. This gave the Foundation the opportunity to grow, and to invest 100% of donations into our overseas project work. Wild at Heart still contributes 10% of its profits annually towards our running costs, and Nikki personally funds many of our international project trips where grants are unavailable, allowing us to channel all public fundraising straight into the areas of greatest need.
A dog-lover for life, Nikki grew up with stray dogs and has never known a time where she didn’t have a dog of her own. Her current clan includes Tia, Smith and Lenny (from Spain), Ronnie (from Romania), and Ruby and Rita (from Puerto Rico).
