“Ambitious, Young, & Driven Pal For Your Furbaby”

Animals have played a significant role throughout my life, and I genuinely appreciate them to this day. My family was very influential in teaching me to love, respect, and care for our cats and dog properly, growing up. In the past, I have helped my family, neighbors, and friends care for their pets as well. Although I currently do not have any pets of my own, I still value the animals who find me along my life's journey. I always seem to have a place for them in my heart. How can you not?
