I live in Adelaide, I'm a retired Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technician with the Peoria Fire Department in Arizona (U.S.A.)
I worked closely on a daily basis giving care and comfort to those involved in difficult situations including family members, friends and neighbours while providing shelter for animals they loved but could not physically or mentally provide for their needs.
During my years on the Fire Department I adopted a rescue her name was "Brody" ( Lab/Doberman mix) She was there every step of the way on my physical journeys hiking, jogging you name it she was there to pull me through some mentally exhausting pain. She was my best friend, a wonderful listener and a perfect cuddly buddy.
Before that I worked at Sherman Oaks Veterinary Clinic in California. I fed, walked and bathed my furry friends that where there to be boarded while their families were on holiday.That part was hard seeing them in a cage for days even weeks. I often came in early and stayed late for that little bit of extra time with them and walks.
After retiring I really want to be involved in something that makes our best friends happy.... me as well.
