The fact that i learned so much this summer and truly dove deeper into my animal care career and hope to take this knowledge and move forward.

What I wish was different

Nothing.

It is hard, it is sad, it is great, it is awesome, but at the end of the day if you have a passion for carring for animals. Persue it but take the good with the bad and contiue on as there is more to it then just caring for them.
