The reason such spells don't work for you is that magic cannot change you into something else. You're human and you'll remain human throughout this lifetime no matter how many spells you do. Such ideas as being able to physically change shape are nonsense.
When the ancient shamans talked of changing into another creature they were talking about on a spiritual plain, not here in the physical world.
To add to what was said, if you want to be around animals, you could try volunteering at your local animal shelter. I'm sure a lot of the animals there could use a fried. You'd be surprised at how much they would appreciate the kindness and affection.
