I have been a life-long animal lover, who has lived with cats, dogs, birds, fish, and small critters. I have been a volunteer at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, taking in kittens to foster until they are old enough for adoption.
Lost my 16-year-old bichon last year, and adopted a 15-year-old miniature poodle and a 12-year-old toy poodle to give them a good senior life. I am experienced in giving oral medication and also insulin shots.
I have 3 cats at home, and 4 caged birds (separated, of course).
I am retired and would be home most of the time, making it possible to have walks and potty breaks as needed.
I live in townhouse with a fenced backyard. Dogs can have the run of the house if they get along with cats and my dog; if not, they would need to be separated.
I took a course in veterinary assistance and have a certificate.
