Experience with animals and own pets

I am happy to say I am living a life filled with wacky pets. Currently my pet family includes our 6 dogs, 3 cats, 3 geese and 3 chickens- needless to say, there is never dull moment in our house.

Since I was little I have always loved being around animals whether it has been horse riding, running with my dog Ariel, volunteering at the SPCA or simply reading a book with my cats next to me. My sister studied to be a vet and she was always bringing home day old puppies and kittens for us to bottle feed and raise till they could be adopted (Lilo and Golium are our 2 cats who we raised and they just never left our home). We also have our beautiful dog Nala who was adopted from the SPCA.

I have experience looking after many homes and pets of all sizes (horses, birds, cats, dogs, fish, etc) for friends and family, naturally of course their pets became like my extended family.

If you ever see that girl trying to hang over a fence to pet a dog then that is probably me 😊
