I have always had a pet in my life since I was 6 years old. Animals are the loves of my life and I enjoy spending time with them and learning as much as I can about them.
I have had cats in my family which I helped to raise (4 cats total, 3 of which are currently living with my parents and 1 who passed due to cancer). All of my cats have been rescues adopted from non profits. In middle and high school I volunteered with an organization called Dumpster Cats and assisted with the care of rescued feral cats and kittens and helped them to find forever homes on special adoption days at pet stores.
I currently have a rescued shepherd mix puppy named Ember who is my whole heart. She is currently around 10 months old and is a very active and intelligent puppy. I've been her handler working with her in dog training classes since she was 4 months old. She has her AKC Star Puppy certification and is working toward the AKC Canine Good Citizen. Currently she and I are learning Novice Rally Obedience which is a dog sport combining old fashioned obedience and fun agility. Ember receives top vet care, is spayed and licensed with the state of Delaware, and is fed about 80% a raw food diet.
I am so excited to meet your furry best friend! I would love to gain more professional experience caring for pets so that I can begin a career in the animal care / training industry.
