My Animal C.V.

My name is Danielle, I am a devoted animal lover. I have owned and cared for animals all my life. I knew from a young age that I wanted a career working with animals. I was brought up with animals since I was born, my family have always owned all different pets, from dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, to ferrets etc.

I have qualifications in Level 3 animal management and level 4 animal welfare. I have had lots of work experience, in a dog grooming salon-working with all different dog breeds, volunteering at animal charities, lots of hands-on experience with animals as part of my study, I have walked lots of dogs of all different breeds and sizes in a kennel, *this is when I realised that dogs find a kennel environment very stressful.* I have also cared for my own pets, my families pets and my friends pets all my life !

I have volunteered in South Africa on a game reserve, which was an amazing experience. I also volunteer for Cats Protection when I can, a charity very close to my heart. I have also volunteered for the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, another amazing charity that is very close to my heart.
