My name is Brittany and I love animals! I currently live on my own and am able to provide transportation if needed. I currently work at an emergency veterinary clinic and have been for over 2 years. Starting in the fall I will be starting classes to become a veterinary technician. I would enjoy helping owners out to ensure their little furry friends get the exercise they need!
