My love for all animals started at an early age. My grandparents had everything from cows-blue healers and I loved being around all the animals.
In high school my first job was at a Vet clinic cleaning kennels and walking dogs, there is where my love for boxers came into play. A young boxer and his parrot friend was left to board while their owner went to FL to care for his sick father. I fell in love with Ali and after several weeks of boarding I begged his original owner to let me have him and that’s how I got my first boxer!
After losing boxer Penelope, my absolute LOVE, in 2013 I came to BRBR in search of my next boxer child. I met Cruz at Woofstock and it was love at first sight! 2014 I started volunteering with BRBR. I’ve helped with events and fostering and now very excited for my journey of Fundraiser Coordinator.
