Ever since I was young, I have always had love and compassion for all animals. I have had various pets as a child including goldfish, chickens, lizards, hermit crabs, Chinchillas, rabbits, dogs, cats and Zebra Finches. It is the way they will unconditionally love you and stick by you, good or bad. They won't always understand you but they know that you are their world, even if they're not yours. Aside from them being oh so cute and adorable, it is the companionship they offer and the endless entertainment. They can be brilliant or they can just be cuddly but it always breaks my heart to see animals neglected like a bag of trash or mistreated. They don't have a voice and they can't always fight back so I am truly compassionate about animal rights and their fair treatment. It is also this compassion that has fueled my desire to one day pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Currently and sadly I am not able to have any pets in my apartment so I am ready to go out and love other peoples' pets for them!
