“When I grew up, we had all kinds of animals. We had dogs, cats, horses, cattle, and then we had wildlife that we would rehab. So I had all kinds of opportunities to take care of pets. I felt compassion for them when they couldn’t help themselves. It really made me want to figure out how could I make them better because they just provided so much happiness to me. Their simplicity, the way they think, the way these animals think, and just, “I always want to be happy, I want to play, and I want to have fun. And I want to love you.” That’s kind of their attitude and to me that, just as a kid, I thought I want to be able to help these things. I want to know how to help them, I want to know how to fix them, I want to know what’s wrong so I could make their lives better.
