Experience with animals and own pets

All my life, I have had pets! Currently, I share my life with a Siberian Husky known as Mushu. I am responsible for most of this dog’s life - I walk her, feed her and make sure she is well-groomed and well looked after.

My further animal caring experience go on to my time at an organisation known as Friends of rescued animals most commonly referred to as F.O.R.A. At FORA, I was responsible for feeding the animals and taking them out for a healthy walk, entertaining them and making sure they were comfortable. This was personally a rewarding experience for me as it allowed me to be part of a rehabilitation process for dogs that were rescued from rather unpleasant environments.

I also have experience from previous pet sitting jobs as I was tasked with looking after the pets from other families which also resulted in me being tasked with looking after their houses, giving me house sitting responsibilities along with the job of looking after pets.
