Question 1: How long have you volunteered helping animals?
Answer: Since I was 3 years old, my family has taken me to donate items to the humane society. At nine years old I started my dog sitting business for friends and family called Camp Critters. The SD humane society featured me on their website because I donate a percentage or all of my pet sitting earnings to the humane society. Now at 13, I just recently started volunteering at the Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita.
Question 2: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Answer: I'd like to be a veterinarian and the owner of an animal sanctuary like the gentle barn.
Question 3: If you had three wishes what would they be?
Answer: To have endless money to donate to local shelters, to stop animal abuse, and to find homes for all the shelter dogs.
Question 4: What do you want the general public to know about pitbull type dogs?
Answer: That they rank higher then border collies, labs, and beagles on the American temperament test society testing.We think Tate rocks and encourage her to keep doing what she is doing, and to follow her dreams of working to benefit animals in need.
