Im 30 years old and have kept my own pets for 22 yrs. In that time ive had 3 rabbits, 4 cats and 7 dogs. Ive done volunteer work for my local shelters over the past 12 yrs. I have no pet allregies and will work with anything other than birds, as i have little experience with them. Im currently in Southport Queensland on a work and Holiday visa. In the U.S.A. i have a 12 yr old pit lab mix and 6 yr old boxer left in the care on my mother. They are spoiled with plenty of room to play and love untill i return however, Ive never been without a pet of some kind and need some time with animals while im here this year.
