I know this will come as a shock, but I love animals!
Although I was not allowed to have pets as a kid (Mom's extremely afraid of cats and dogs), I found ways to get next to dogs and cats. At about age 7/8 I
started walking dogs (black scotties) and was always interested in everyone else's pets. My love grew into pet sitting and now I have two dear kitty fur
babies of my own (Sergio the tiger and Louie the black cat). Eventually I hope to have a place to live where I can add a canine fur baby to my family.
I am a member of several animal organizations but most of my time is taken up by the League for Animal Protection of Huntington (Huntington, Long Island, NY).
I am a board member, cat caretaker (i.e. feed, medicate, clean and do adoptions) plus a dog caretaker (i.e. assist in behavior assessments, walk, train, groom,
help place dogs and am the volunteer coordinator). I'm also a member and volunteer with LIGHT (Long Island GreyHound Transfer).
