Our Staff: Heather
Dog Handler
I have one dog named Shady Lady. She is a cockapoo that I have had since she was a puppy. Her favorite activity is laying on her back and playing her with pink pig toy. I also have a calico cat named Scribbles with my roommate. You can catch her watching the neighborhood kids play outside from the window sill.
It's hard to pick a favorite because I love them all, but I have grown up with pugs and hounds so they have a sweet spot in my heart. I love how playful and loving they can be.
In my free time I enjoy going on hikes with friends and walking through the many gardens of Chicago. I also enjoy embroidery and knitting. I have been doing it since I was a kid and have just recently gotten back into it. It reminds me to be patient and take my time.
I hope to one day have my own animal rescue. I would love to be able to help all animals that I can. We would care for all different kinds as well. I would want to live on a farm with lots of land for the animals.
I am a huge fan of scary movies. I love watching behind the scenes and seeing how it was made and all the details on how it came together.
I attended Moraine Valley Community College
I am very active in my local TNR (trap, neuter, return) and cat rescue community. There are at least 4-5 cats in my area that will stop and say hello! I also help regularly with stocking up community fridges in the Chicagoland area. It helps giving back to the community!
