Experience with animals and own pets

My entire life I have been surrounded by cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes; I honestly would not be able to imagine my life without wet snouts and soft purrs! No matter where we go, I always hope to run into someone’s pets, so that I can rather spend my time with them, than do anything else.

My love for animals probably stems from the amazing pets I’ve had throughout my life, and I can vouch for the fact that they have been the dearest friends, and no matter how old I grow, they will always have a very special place in my heart. I have always loved caring and nurturing them, and it would be my privilege to do so for more animals.

My passion in life is to always make a difference wherever I go, even if it is the smallest impact. My dream is to one day become a puppy raiser for the South African Guide Dog Association, to be able to spend time with these wonderful dogs and make a large impact in the world. I hope I’ll be able to make a difference in taking care of someone else’s lovely animals, giving them the care and love they need, even when their parents aren’t home.
