Kara is great with animals and truly cares for their safety and well being. She's very mindful of each individual animal's needs and treats others' animals as if they are her own. She's cared for my canaries,

Kara is a committed life-long animal lover. She has a wonderfully selfless heart that enables her to put something special into her care of her charges. They get intelligent and informed yet thoroughly kind attention; every bit of what they want AND what they need.
