Amy, Kennel Assistant
Since 2005, Amy has arrived to work bright and early to take the boarding dogs out for their morning stroll. She would consider walking the dogs one of her favorite parts of her job. Amy's sense of humor and her love of music make the kennel a fun place to be. When she's not busy working, she has her hands full caring for her Shih Tzu mix (adopted from OPVC, of course), Daisy, and her Corgi, Max 2.0.
