Compassionate And Attentive Animal Caregiver
I've spent the last 12+ years with my own dogs, who passed in 2018 + 2020. I also spent most of 2013 volunteering on a weekly basis at Animal Haven, an animal shelter in NYC.
It was during my time at Animal Haven that I rescued our recently departed Shih-Tzu, Oscar, who arrived at the shelter severely bruised, burned, matted, + afraid. My husband + I spent 7+ years giving him the love + care he deserved. He had a heart murmur that led to heart failure in 2020 just 1 month after receiving an all-clear from his prior nasal carcinoma treatment. I tell you this to demonstrate my dedication to our four-legged companions.
The wounds are still open from losing Oscar in Dec, which was followed by me losing my job as a senior executive in the entertainment industry. While I am currently working part-time on freelance work, I'm looking to help others with their pet care needs.
I'd love to lend a hand to your animal companions.
