Growing up I always remember having pets, and they were always viewed as part of the family. As I became a young adult, I spent my free time volunteering for a local wildlife refuge where I was able to have an active role in wildlife rehabilitation. Many of my family pets over the years were rescues, including my current dog Hazel. I originally was a foster home for Hazel, and soon after became her “fur”ever home. I feel very honored to have been invited to be part of the Fetching Hearts team and I look forward to helping our future fosters. "
