Animals have always been a passion for me ever since I can remember. In fact I will soon begin working toward a degree in Zoology at the University of Minnesota. I have quite a bit of experience caring for animals, as I spent 2 years cleaning out kennels and litter boxes, and feeding cats and dogs at the no kill shelter PAWS Chicago. I also spent the last 5 years volunteering at the Hyde Park Animal Hospital assisting in everything from examinations, light grooming, administering medication, performing waste management, and walking animals, even working with several exotic animals including hedgehogs, turtles, guinea pigs, and rabbits. I also currently care for 3 cats and rambunctious rough collie.
