i loved being a kennel attendant, unfortunately where ever you go this job doesn't pay well. Actually there isn't money in the veterinary field. I was a kennel tech for 2 years, and a vet asst. for 1 year. Most of these jobs earn an hourly wage of $7-$9 an hour. Im working on my degree now in veterinary technology, I graduate in dec. and will make b/t $12-$15 hr. Im not in it for the money. I love the job.
