    I am currently trying to get a job with animals. I have no legal experience with animals, and I am getting more confused with how to get some with no degree. I am enrolled in college on my way to getting an associates in natural science. From there I am going to move up to Humboldt University to get a BA in Zoology. As of now I want experience to work at a higher leveled job. The zoo is offering a program to be a camp counselor for the summer so I applied there. Is the only thing left is to volunteer? I currently work at In n out and I am a full time student. I go to school and immediately go to work. I need money and volunteering isn't really in my agenda. Any way I can start my path in animals? Anyone know of local job opportunities? Thanks
