Experience with animals and own pets

I am incredibly lucky to have Peaches, Bella and Pixie in my life. All three of these beautiful cats were rescued, and they are the reasons I believe in adopting, not buying a pet. There is a lot of pressure that I must deal with when it comes to studies and exams, but the best way to calm down is spending one afternoon with my babies.

Growing up, I lived in a complex where pets were not allowed. Fortunately I was still able to spend so much time with animals through friends and family, and that is how I developed a deep love for the animal world.

I try to volunteer as often as I can at Wetnose Animal Shelter to walk the dogs and give them the love they deserve. I also spend some time with the older cats that are often overlooked because of their age. If I could bring home every dog and cat I see I definitely would. They open a side of me I never knew I have, the side of a strong animal lover.

Additional Comments:

Kabir really was amazing and went the extra mile with my babies!

He sent photos daily, let me know when he left the house and when he got back.

Our 1 dog is a 5 month old German Shepherd puppy and is quite a handful - Kabir handled her like a pro and was super attentive and concerned if something happened (for example her puppy tooth fell out).

Our house and fur babies were well looked after! Thank you Kabir and StudentCo!
