So, What’s My Story?

Hi, my name is Courtney and I am the Founder of My passion for rescue developed as soon as I learned how many sweet and healthy dogs were euthanized in shelters around the nation due to overcrowding.

I’m married to Curt & have 3 kids; 27, 21, & 15.

In our own household, we now have Five birds: A Cockatiel and four Canaries. Two dogs: A Humane Society mutt-mixed breed (jack russel/beagle)we rescued a day before he was scheduled to be euthanized, a terrier-mutt that was a customer’s dog we adopted. (We lost Daisy due to cancer) Six cats: Yes.. we actually have adopted six cats! We also have one Chinchilla.  Of course, these numbers could grow at any time! LOL

I am a semi-retired Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT). Being an LVT means getting your hands dirty and doing some grunt work. No matter which part of the hospital I was scheduled to work in, I always had to do things like clean out cages, wipe down tables, sterilize instruments, and clean up messes. Dirty, but rewarding! was born from wanting to share my love of pets.
