Hello everyone. I'm graduating from college with a bachelor's in biology, and I'm starting to freak out about the job hunt. The main reason for this is that I'm not interested in working in a lab with microscopes and cells and stuff. I love animals, and I would have loved to have taken on something more focused on animals as a major, but biology is all they offer at my school. I'm terrible with anything resembling chemistry, hence my reluctance to work as a lab tech or equivalent.

My problem is that I don't really know what jobs are out there that somehow directly involve animals that I can get into. I have no "official" experience with animals; I'm great with them, but I've barely had pets, let alone a job involving animals (I almost got a summer job at a kennel two years ago, but my cat allergy leaped up at me the second I went into the room). I could never handle being a vet. I'm really not sure how well I'd do as a zookeeper; aside from my unnatural fear of bees and my hatred of winter weather, as far as I can tell zookeeping does not have many opportunities for promotion and wage increase, but I'm getting the impression that many animal-involved jobs are like that.

So there's my rant. Here's my question: what animal-related jobs are out there? I'm really just lacking in information. Any help would be greatly appreciated and would definitely help me narrow down my options.
