My hobbies are; archery, charcoal drawing, messing around with my son outside and/or doing art projects, listing to heavy metal music, and from time to time will play my flutes, piccolo, and drum set. I’m originally from Reno, NV then moved to Winter Park, CO for a bit, before moving here in WA. I have a soft spot for all herding canines, especially Border Collies!

Taylin's Bio

I love all animals, but cows are my favorite. They remind me of grass-eating field cats! Cats are my second favorite animal. Someday I hope to have a trauma farm where people with trauma can come to heal while working with animals.

Karen

Kennel Assistant

Karen's Bio
Karen grew up in rural eastern Washington, helping neighbors with their dogs, goats, cows, and horses. After living in Belgium for a year as an exchange student, she went to WWU and graduated with a degree in English-Creative Writing. Considering the available career opportunities within that field, she eventually found a calling in professional pet care. Her passions include cradling her rescue dog (Snoot) like a human child, crocheting swimwear, and coming up with obnoxious dad jokes. Her favorite part about working with animals is the moment she earns the trust of a shy, new friend.
