Do you remember, back as kids, when we used to bring home all the
neighborhood strays? Well, besides saving and bringing home stray cats and
dogs, I also used to spend my time keeping my neighbors tied-up dogs company.
I can still remember Holly, the dog across the street from my house.
She waited for me every day to get off the bus and pet her.
Later on in life, I worked as a nurse’s aide for years while part time
pet sitting. I started rescuing stray kittens and cats, bottle feeding
the orphaned kittens with a friend. Now, I work with a non profit
dog organization called Homeward Bound Dog Rescue
helping homeless dogs find their way home. I
foster many at my home until they are adopted. I’ve always felt a need
to work with animals; this is my one true love. Everybody always asked me,
“Why in the world don’t you work with animals?” And so I started Pets at
I’ve had a love for animals from before I can remember. I can not think
of a more enjoyable career for me. I love what I do! I will care for
your “babies” as if they are my own.
I live in the Village of Colonie with my family and "extended family”
of 6 cats, 1 rabbit, 4 doggies, fish, and my foster kitties.
