Animal Welfare Special Libraries and Museums


The Animal's Guardian. Help! The shadow of the knife., Digital ID 2054684, New York Public LibraryI absolutely love animals. I have fostered many cats, including a queen and her three kittens this spring. I have been riding horses since I was nine years old. I volunteered in two zoo libraries, and I walked dogs for six years in various animal shelters. I used to be a big fan of Animal Planet and Steve Irwin and the Australia Zoo. Animals are cute, adorable, and they just make me happy.
