Experience with animals and own pets

I've been very lucky to have grown up in a household that has had many different animals. We have owned dogs of varying sizes, cats, birds (including chickens!), and gerbils. Currently I have my three lively Chinese Shar Pei’s (Winston, Jasmine, and Tiger Lily), and my kitten Bella.

I volunteer at the Centurion SPCA, and love spending time with all the animals there. I have experience looking after the pets (both big and small) of friends and family.
