Pet Sitter in Kitchener

Hello! I\'m a 22 year old animal lover residing in Kitchener. I have always been interested in animals of all kinds and have much interest in pursuing a career in the rescue and rehabilitation of animals. I have had over six cats and three dogs as family pets throughout my lifetime and currently care for two rescue cats of my own (as well as some hermit crabs, hamsters and aquatic animals). My goal in the next couple of years is to gain some experience working with domestic animals and potentially volunteer with a wildlife rehabilitation center working with wildlife. In the future, I hope to open up my own rehabilitation center or wildlife shelter. As a child I had the dream of becoming a Veterinarian, and at age 7 had plans with the local Veterinary Clinic to volunteer once I became of age. Since then I have discovered that medicine isn\'t the field I\'m most suited for, rather rescue and rehabilitation are. In the past I have volunteered at the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society socializing with the cats and small animals as well as completing animal husbandry duties. This volunteer experience was very fulfilling and further fueled my passion to work with animals. Whether you need someone to come check in on your animals, or you need someone to take in your fur baby while you\'re away, or you need someone to give your pets a little exercise contact me! I\'d love to meet your furry (and those not so furry) family members! Here are a few thoughts I have on animal related issues to help you figure out whether or not I\'m a good fit for you and your family: -I believe in NO KILL shelters -I believe in an Adopt Don\'t Shop mentality -I believe in the advocation of animal welfare -I believe in the humane treatment of ALL animals -I believe in educating the public on wildlife issues (especially getting people in cities to understand the impacts of wildlife issues since this is the population that is often less impacted, and therefore more ignorant to it) -I believe in banishing peoples fears of wildlife by proper, factual education -I believe in educating yourself on how animals communicate to ensure their behaviour is not misunderstood -I DO NOT believe in breed discrimination -I DO NOT believe in bounties -I DO NOT believe in animal testing, and wish to promote 100% cruelty free products If any of these opinions seem to match up with yours, feel free to contact me! I have been around animals my whole life. I've had many family pets including cats, dogs, fish, and birds. As an adult I currently own two rescue cats, two hamsters, hermit crabs and aquatic animals. Throughout my teen years I volunteered at the KW Humane Society socializing with the cats and small animals and performing animal husbandry duties. In the near future I'm going to be enrolling in the CCS Dog training, psychology and aggression course as well as taking a pet first aid course.
