Jules dos Santos

 - [Founder / Owner]

JJules dos Santos. Founder and Managing Director of Divine Creatures Cat Hotelules' passion for animals is immense! Desperate to work with animals from her early years, she started in the veterinary industry as a volunteer when she was just 14 years of age. Over the years she has rescued many abandoned cats & dogs and cared for them in her own home. Her latest fur family of five have all been well rehabilitated and are now living the life of luxury along with her human baby!

In 1998 she moved to Australia from the UK and continued dedicating her life to animals as a veterinary nurse. Since then Jules has worked in many areas from Cattery Manager to head specialised surgical nurse to manager of the emergency department of the renowned Veterinary Specialist Centre.

Jules also has a deep passion for animal welfare & animal rights and has recently become an advocate for Oscar's Law, promoting the need to rescue animals. She spent several years working as a volunteer with her Border Collie as a pet therapy dog and also has particular interest in tigers, donating generously to WWF sponsoring tigers. 

Jules started Divine Creatures in 2010. The need for a luxury, high quality cat hotel in Sydney was quite apparent when Jules could not find a suitable cat hotel to board her own cats when she went on holiday and so the concept of a luxury cat hotel started and Divine Creatures was created with one aim in focus: to provide the very best care and accommodation away from home for our feline friends!
