Hi, my name is Courtney and I am the Founder of Pet-Bandanas.com. 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!
Pet-Bandanas.com was born from wanting to share my love of pets.

It was obvious that he had gone a long time with no real feeding schedule. He behaved as if he did not expect food to be part of a daily routine. ...READ MORE +
