Animal Care Attendant

My Pets: I have 4 babies at home. I have adopted all of my babies from shelters. My longest term is my cat named Rainbow I have fostered him since he was 2 days old he is currently 5 years old now.  I have a 2-year-old blind miniature poodle/ Maltese mix adopted at the age of 10 months. I have a 2-year-old kitty that is about 1-year-old she was a stray kitty I adopted her and took her in. Kitty was actually brought into my home by Rainbow. And my newest member to my family is Macey she is a 5 month old black pitty pup mix.

Why I love Morris: I had heard about Morris while working in another shelter. When coming to Morris, I was very excited to see how the animals are all cared for by the staff. The team work that goes into the care for these fur babies is remarkable and all the determination to help these animals as a team has made me so happy and proud to be part of a team that is all about the health and safety of these animals. While working at Morris I have learned so much in just a couple months when it comes to the animals. Also, I am so excited to be part of a team that welcomes all animals and strives to better each and every animal. The care that is given to every animal individually is amazing. I could not be more excited to be working with Morris Animal Refuge and cannot thank them enough to let me join the team.
