Recently I started volunteering at the RSPCA and Cat's Protection. I've being prioritising my Mondays and Tuesdays to socialise with some of the rescue cats and rabbits. I've also been enjoying the little bit of sunshine we've had by walking a couple of dogs through East Ardsley. One of my favourites is a rabbit that resembles a Dalmatian and a Saluki doggie. I've also made some new like-minded friends which, i have been grateful for because the first couple of days felt like starting a new job. Enjoyable, but worried that i might be doing something wrong.

"Do what you can, when you can."

Last week, myself and Adam attended an open day at the College of Animal Welfare in Tingley, to gain more knowledge about their Veterinary Nursing degree. There was a short but thorough presentation and we were shown around the site. It was really impressive, there's a veterinary clinic, hydrotherapy pool, grooming salon, kennels and cattery pens onsite. These facilities will give the students valuable opportunities to gain real hands on practical experience within a veterinary practice. Not to mention that the first couple of months is theory work based at the college site and the rest of the year spent in your chosen veterinary practice/placement. Another bonus is that the course accepts 25 students each year, so its quite different from the hundreds that other universities tend to take on.
The facilities were professional, there's plenty of space and learning resources available. 

Soooo now I'm currently working on my application to apply for this fall. Wish me luck!

    1. It is dreamy and relaxing. It's nice to get out and walk some of the dogs through the woods too. I'm just waiting for Caro to write a reference for me, then i will be sending my application off :) I will start in October if i get onto the course. Thank you Jodie, miss you all. We'll have to meet up for a piece of cake and a cuppa soon. xx
