About the Author

I was born in Fremont, Ohio and graduated from Ross High School. I always had a love for animals. I married my next-door neighbor boy and we raised 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls.

I finally got my first dog when I was a junior in high school. After I married we had German Shepherds, Great Danes, a Doberman, a Shetland Sheepdog, Collies, a poodle, but not at the same time. Right now my pal is Jake, an Australian Cattle Dog.

I am a charter member of the local Humane Society. I was one of the first Dog Wardens to start spay and neuter before our strays could be adopted. I also started putting microchips in the dogs.

The only way to stop the euthanasia of pets is to spay and neuter.
