Since I moved to the area in 2008, I've worked at a local hardware store. January 2021, I felt it was a good time for a change, and when I saw Roscommon County Animal Control was hiring, I jumped at the opportunity. I've always had a soft spot for animals, and now I get to be a part of making sure that they are well taken care of in our community.

I've lived in Roscommon County for most of my life. As a kid we had an assortment of pets, and I've always had a soft spot for them. Although I've only been with the shelter for a short time, I love taking care of these animals that need a second chance finding a forever home.

My parents gave me my first kitten when I was just a newborn, so I suppose you could say I've always been a "cat person." I consider myself blessed to have known and loved many cats in my lifetime.

Cats are eccentric little gremlins, each with their own unique language, quirks and preferences. I consider it to be my job at the shelter to love and care for every animal as if...

After working four years at District Court, I transferred to the shelter a year ago. I feel like I am right where I should be! I am grateful every day to be a part of a hardworking team of compassionate people.

Together, we are dedicated to bring out each pet's best and celebrate their successful adoption, no matter how long it takes.

I have a special spot in my heart...
