Experience with animals and own pets

My journey with pets began at a young age. Since I was a young child, pets have played an important role in my life. We have had a variety of different kinds of pets including dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, hamsters and other rodents, reptiles etc. Hence, I am comfortable dealing with or taking care of different kinds of animals. Taking care of my pets, and other’s pets has also taught me a lot about responsibility.

As part of my school’s community service programs, I would often lend a hand at the SPCA as well as no-kill animal shelters. On many occasions, I have been asked to take care of family and friends’ pets. They have also referred me to others for the purpose of pet sitting. I have been exposed to multiple breeds of dogs and understand the many temperaments and personalities that they may have.

Currently, I am a proud pet mom of two dogs and a cat. I love them very much, and would be delighted at the opportunity to take care of your pets too.
