Josh Sparks grew up around animals, but not in the way most of us did.
His father, Dave Sparks, founded Sparks Ark - an animal rehabilitation center. And since he was a teenager, Josh Sparks has been helping him out. These days, Josh runs the family business.
He cares for some 200 animals and is called on to take care of nuisance animals - like raccoons, skunks and squirrels. He also takes his exotic animals on the road for kids' birthday parties or demonstrations at the Children's Museum and Theater of Maine.
