Kennel AssistantJonelys A
Jonelys was born and raised in south Florida. Since a young age she can remember being fascinated with animals of all kinds. She loved her dogs and cats at home, but also enjoyed interacting with the local wildlife. As she grew older she realized her passion for animals could become and career, and joined the team at Central Park Animal Hospital. She is planning on pursuing Zoology in the near future and is enjoying the experience to work first hand with the animals she loves. Jonelys has four adorable pets at home - the tomcat "Toulouse", his sister "Sushi", their new adopted sister "Little Cutie" and her son "Faust", and the most playful of all "Misha" - the only dog in the bunch!
"For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed the company of animals of all kinds, and have been interested in learning more about them. Being home-schooled and growing up on a lake had a huge impact on my decision to pursue a career in Zoology. With time to spare and room to explore, I was always chasing after lizards, turtles, ducks, fish, toads, and squirrels."
