Experience with animals and own pets

I have been fortunate enough to grow up with pets my whole life, which at present, includes sharing a house with four cats, one dog and an African grey. Growing up with many pets taught me many lessons, as each animal has a different personality and as we grew older, pets also became a responsibility that my brother and I shared at home.

We have always had a variety of pets in my home, and I have been lucky enough to volunteer and work with some incredible wild animals, most of which have been birds. I have also been volunteering at the SPCA since my first year in University. I cannot imagine doing anything that does not involve animals - they will always have a big chunk of my heart.
