Experience with animals and own pets

I have had a deep love and fascination with animals my entire life. My personal heroes are Sir David Frederick Attenborough and Steve Irwin, they have inspired me to pursue a career in the study and preservation of animals and nature.

My love for animals also include domestic animals, I have always seen my pets as part of my family. I have fostered and rehomed several homeless animals and I am a firm believer in animal adoption - "don't breed and buy".

I cannot wait to meet the different pets I will be looking after, be they kittens or big rottweilers.
