My name is Olivia; I’m an 18-year-old animal and nature photographer. On April 25, 2009 I became a wife to a wonderful man named Ryan, after 2 ½ years of being engaged. I am now a happily married stay-at-home wife, and the parent of 3 budgies, a rat, bunny, dog, and horse. We have done our fair share of rescue work, and are currently a haven for rats that are no longer wanted by owners. We are housing a total of around 25+ rats at the moment, and we love and care for every single one of them. We recently adopted our beautiful Labrador Retriever "Joans" on May 1, 2009 and she has been nothing but a joy since then. We are hoping to learn, and gain knowledge through this forum!
