If I could make a living doing what I love most it would be caring for ill and injured animals. Wild, stray, and domesticated alike. I would treat them all and give them wonderful homes and open a worldwide corporation of animal clinics, sanctuaries, and habitats for strays and endangered animals to be treated, healed, to live, repopulate and anything else they may need. I would also be sure that all animal cruelty was stopped. There are so many animals in the world who are beaten and abused daily, not given enough food or water, and who is forced to live in their own waste. That is completely and utterly disgusting. Even though they are animals, they still deserve love and respect. A human shouldn’t have to live, eat, and drink where they urinate and defecate, and neither should an animal. This would change the world by decreasing the number of endangered and extinct species and also by keeping all animals healthy that could reduce the diseases and infections and parasites that animals carry that spread to humans. Animals, exotic and common, can also be great companions to humans. If trained properly, any animal can be a service animal, just like there are different personalities in people, animals are the same way. Not everyone is a cat or dog person, they should have the option to choose an animal companion whose personality fits their own.
