Additional Information

I would describe my self as an animal lover. I grew up with pets of all kinds, and currently have 1 dog and 2 cats who we consider to be important members of our family. It is important to us that our animals needs are met physically, emotionally, and socially. We have quite a large number of dogs in our extended family and friend group, and often have play dates. These experiences have taught me a lot about reading animals body language and behavior and responding appropriately and respectfully. This has also given me experiencing introducing and socializing dogs to create harmonious interactions and even strong friendships. I feel I can be an essential part of your team because of my experience with animals, customer service skills, cleaning, documenting, and strong work ethic. I will be dedicated to meeting the needs of not only the animals but the organization as a whole. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely, Jenny
