I have been a pet owner and animal enthusiast my entire life with experience owning and caring for a menagerie of animals. My experiences range from fresh water fish to exotic birds and everything in-between; no creature is too great or small! I am a current pet owner of two small dogs and two cats, and I frequently pet and house sit for friends and family. I have fostered several animals in the past and am always looking for new opportunities to help and care for animals.
