    Christipher K

    Chrisitpher, was raised in a family who prides itself in animal care service.

    Christipher grew up helping with animals and also with the “catch and release” of feral cats in Anaheim, Ca. with the occasional opossums.

    With one aunt being a VA and another family member being a registered dog breeder, I have had amazing experiences with all sorts of animals.

    My love & curiosity for animals has led me to foster and appreciate many of my own.

    Having cared for cats, dogs, hamsters, rats, birds (wild & exotic), reptiles, amphibians, fish and even insects. I plan to continue to live, love and learn with our animal friends, because with them I’m forever home.
