About Kathleen

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there I'm Kathleen,
My animal loving ways first began on my grandpa's farm with his chickens, cows and horses. Yet, even when I moved to the big city of Toronto it didn't stop there. Shortly after, I got a turtle, cat, dog and most recently, a bird! Throughout their time in my care I've been working at numerous vet clinics as an animal care attendant and even a pet store as a sales associate working hard to expand my skills in animal care. Being a pet owner and working in clinics has enabled me to have a proven ability to watch animals in boarding, administer medication and provide fun walks as well as entertain. My time working at a pet store also gave me insight on pet nutrition which no doubt can be handy! Aside from more domesticated animals, I also love volunteering at animal sanctuaries and most recently I volunteered at an elephant rehab centre in Thailand for abused and neglected elephants most notably in the tourism industry. This should add further proof when it comes to my dedication for animal welfare and protection. Therefore, I can assure you that your pets are in good hands!
