I have been an animal lover ever since I got my first dog when I was 5 years old. Ever since that, I have had dogs, cats, hamsters, and guinea pigs, in my house as pets. I started volunteering at a local animal shelter when I was 10 years old and have been a regular volunteer ever since. I cleaned dog cages, walked the dogs, socialized with the cats, fed the cats, etc. I have also done numerous fundraising activities for the shelter.
I do daily visits, as well as overnight stays. I made sure my 'fur babies' have enough food and water in the morning and evening, gave them vitamins and medicine when needed, and walk dogs daily to make sure they have plenty of exercise. If allowed, I also take dogs to the local dog parks so that they would be able to run around and burn off all their extra energy.
