Hi Shedrach,

Many jobs will allow you to be in contact with animals. You could be a dog walker or dog groomer. You could be a zoo keeper or a zoo keeper assistant. You could be a veterinarian or a vet technician. You could be a riding instructor or a dolphin trainer. You could be a dairy farmer.

You see, there are many option. You need to think about what you are passionate about, in what capacity you want to be around animals and how much schooling you want to invest. If you want to be a veterinarian, you should be good in science, especially biology and chemistry. You are looking at 10+ years in college to be a veterinary doctor. On the plus side you'd be really helping animals.

The other professions require less schooling. Some require an associates or a bachelor degree. Others might be on-the-job training.

I hope this helps a bit! Good luck!

elle’s Answer

you can start out by volunteering at a local animal shelter or rescue organization - whether that’s for domesticated animals, farm animals, birds, etc. once you’ve volunteered at one of these organizations and you find you’ve enjoyed it, then consider applying for a job with the organization that allows you to continue to develop your professional skills in working with and around animals. if you’re not in college or are exploring options for what to study in college, you may also want to look into becoming a veterinary technician (https://www.nysavt.org/page/LVTschoolsList). this will allow you to work in veterinarian’s offices or animal hospitals. i hope this helps! good luck!
