I've always dreamed of working with animals, ever since I was little (from around 4 years old). I knew that this must be a calling, and I really don't want to go into a job where I am not helping animals in some way. Now, I am sixteen and about to take my GCSE's this coming summer. However, even at this point, I have nothing other than the obligated primary & secondary education. And since I have not yet got my GCSE's, and so therefore unqualified for pretty much anything, I don't know how I can present myself as knowledgeable, at least with animals. I really want something to put on a CV. Knowing that regardless of anything, I am definitely working with animals, I just wanted to know what I can do right now. Fostering would be so ideal, but my parents are against having any more animals in the house (2 dogs as of the moment). Does anyone know a way that a sixteen year old can get some kind of animal experience? There's also no nearby charity shops I can apply for, and the nearest pet store is so inhumane it would make me sick to work there.
