Experience with animals and own pets

While working with special needs children, I have been exposed to how having a pet can change their day to day lives for the better. Teaching children, on a daily basis, how to be responsible and take care of their pets has helped me not only gain more affection and patience but also a greater knowledge.

I have met some fun loving dogs, birds, ducks, guinea pigs and kittens over the years and every experience I've had around them has been full of giggles and joy as the children share the cool tricks that their pets can do.

I have come to appriciate the moments that I have spent with pets!
