My name is Jessica Spencer, I am a 21 year old animal lover and my passion and hobby is my pets. I set this website up along with my own small family business from home where I united all of the family to start a business combining our common interests together which created the perfect working team. I am responsible and friendly and I have a tendency to put the care of animals first throughout my life. These traits combined with the help of my loving family has accumulated a great new career path for us and we are growing bigger and stronger every year.
