Hey There

Thanks for diving a little deeper! We're officially besties now.

More About Me

When I was younger, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I loved animals and wanted to help them in any way I could. I didn't end up taking that path (not even close!) but the desire to help remained.

I was the friend people would leave their pets with. I was the stranger asking, "Can I pet your dog?" I was always the one leading with a gasp and pointing to the closest furry thing. The one pulling over and trying to pick up an abandoned baby squirrel (true story. I called him Chestnut).

When I was younger, I had this fantasy that I was going to own a farm and save all the animals. I had land and kennels with runners (think of a fenced hallway outside) for the dogs to run back and forth, get fresh air, play with their friends or be by themselves if they needed it. I had big, wooden, warm "houses" for the dogs who wanted to stay inside. There were couches, pillows and cushions that gave the aura of home and I would never let them know it wasn't their real ones. They would all be loved and taken care of. I didn't expect anything from them. It was my happy place. As I'm diving deeper into this line of work, I can see that little fantasy, that "Useless Farm" as I called it (name pending), come to light. The excitement knowing it's a little more tangible is a complete sensory overload, in the best way.

I do what I can with the resources I have. I have caught several strays since living in CA and rehomed them, sheltered them on my own or found their owners. I once filled my Mini Cooper with 9 dogs to pick them up from a shelter and bring them to Sacramento. I work with reactive dogs because I believe they deserve the same love as your average doggo. I'm trying to obtain 300 working hours to become a CPDT (Certified Professional Dog Trainer) to make sure dogs and people have the confidence and knowledge to take care of each other. I try to make myself available to those furry friends in need, however I can.

Every day, I wish I could do more. Every day I see an abandoned dog, terrified of being caught or a cat community, hiding under shipment containers, in the woods or abandoned buildings. Every time I come across of abuse, trying to pass itself as "training," or owner surrenders because the dog was being too much of a dog. Every time I think, "If only I had that farm!" A place for the strays who never had a home, to experience unconditional love. A place for the older pets in shelters who shouldn't have their last days be in a cage. A place for dogs with anxiety or aggression to have the space and patience to grow. A place for the people, to bring their best friends and know they will be loved, looked after and cared for as their own. And for those same people to find their furry best friend; their soul-dog. These are just a few examples of what I think when I think of that farm.

 

This is why I do what I do.
