"Why I do what I do" started at a young age, when my love for animals started. I would bring all types of creature's I find in the stream behind our house (from bugs to rats, to snakes, turtles and crawfish) home to my mom - who was afraid of almost all of them. I would use the encyclopedia to find out what I caught and how to take care of it, what it ate and how to keep it healthy.
I do this job so I can feel the happiness of when I was young as well as it feels good to help the helpless. I tell my friends that I am a life saver because when I help a pet, I help them as well as the family that love's them.
