Experience with animals and own pets

Animals have always been a passion of mine and a huge part of my life. As long as I can remember, we have always had pets in the family. When I was younger, I had Socks, Brandy and Max. Max was a beautiful golden Labrador, Brandy was a chocolate Spaniel and socks was always a bit of question mark. Later on, Sacha and Micha joined my us - two domestic short hair cats. Now it's just my border collie, Luna, and I.

Having been around animals constantly, I am extremely comfortable around all animals. I firmly believe that each and every animal deserves to be loved and cared for. No matter the size, personality or age, I will give all my love to any animal. Fur babies are truly family and I will therefore go above and beyond in making sure they are comfortable and happy.
