Owner of no-kill animal shelter chats about her passion to help animals

Heather Burnett loves her job, but truth be told, she would rather not have it at all. That's because the Texas woman, who has been running the Noah's Ark no-kill animal shelter for the past 20 years, has seen her fair share of pets looking for parents, according to Community Impact Newspaper.

"We are probably the only business that would love to be put out of business," Burnett told the news outlet. "Wouldn't it be wonderful if we didn't exist? If there were homes for all the abandoned animals?"

Noah's Ark houses more than 30 dogs and cats, as well as several other interesting animals. In fact, the sanctuary is home to several hamsters, rabbits and even a few horses.

Over the past two decades, Burnett has found thousands of loving animals a home. She also spends her time educating youngsters about the importance of proper pet ownership.

"We're here because we have to be here," Burnett told the news source. "It's my love of animals and working with and teaching the kids that visit here that keeps me going."

According to its website, Noah's Ark animal shelter accepts financial donations. The money is used to help animals with heartworm and flea prescriptions, as well as purchase medical supplies.ADNFCR-2796-ID-19896376-ADNFCR
