Experience with animals and own pets

I love animals and try engaging with them whenever possible. I have volunteered at the SPCA on multiple occasions and I have experience house sitting for family and friends, and absolutely enjoyed it.

At home, we have 2 beautiful dogs, a Cocker Spaniel named Tiger who is 14 years old, quite the grandpa, and a beautiful Labrador named Star who is 5. They are such beautiful dogs, and are full of life and very demanding of attention.
