I work as an animal control officer and for me there is joy to adopting animals to loving and be responsible for the lifetime commitment to pets. It is gratifying that we are able to give animals the proper and humane care at the shelter, until the pet owner reclaims them or until they are adopted. I love animals most especially cats and dogs. I own 3 dogs; a golden retriever, poodle and chowchow. They are my stress relievers.
