Experience with animals and own pets

I've literally owned my own little farm. I've had such weird pets, but my two dogs, Zayn and Louis, and my African Grey, Cheeky, are my babies. Zayn is a miniature Yorkshire terrier and Louis is a miniature Doberman pinscher. They're the best things that have happened to me and I honestly wait for the moment where I come home and get showered with kisses all day.

I have experience looking after friends and families pets and I'm always that person who sees an animal and then immediately goes over to play with it. I do go to welfare or rescue events. One I really enjoyed was the show for Paws R Us SA to raise funds for them and also actively donating food to charities that need it. I try to do as much as I possibly can to help animals. I would've been a vet if I could have.
