Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up with pets around me, there has never been a day or a moment in my life that I have not had one or multiple different types of pets. I have always had dogs, in particular. As a child, we had three German Shepherds and I currently have my 3 little doggy babies, 2 Jack Russels and 1 little Yorkie that we adopted 2 years ago. I currently have a beautiful Maine coon and 5 very fluffy little bunnies.

In the past I have also had hamsters, fish, and have previously cared for a family members birds. Growing up with pets has allowed me to really get to know how to handle and care for many different types of pets and has also prepared me well for those pet emergencies.

Apart from having lived with animals, I have also engaged with animals through community service, in particular that of Ark animal centre as well as the SPCA. My family has always taught me to help where I can and we often try to help stray animals that no one else will stop for, as well as trying to find them the right happy family.

I have an absolute passion for animals, and I love being around them and caring for them and obviously giving ALL the loves.
