I grew up as an only child to older parents in a small rural town in Southern Minnesota on a wildlife refuge. I spent the majority of my youth on a friend's horse ranch guiding trails and working with the horses. On the farm we also had a number of different dogs over time and numerous farm cats.  

During my childhood she was always surrounded by pets.  My husband and I did not have children, we gravitated toward pets instead. I came into the marriage with a cat and our first dog together was a German Shepherd that we got from a breeder. We went to breeders not knowing about rescue.    

After a number of moves around the US over the years we finally settled in Atlanta for nearly 8 years now. About 5 years ago I started volunteering with a local Humane Society. I helped at the shelter, with transports and running adoption events. While doing this I was receiving emails from various shelters showing dogs that were about to lose their lives. The Humane Society could not take all of them in of course, so I began working with a rescue in the NE by pulling and sending dogs up there if I couldn't find homes in GA. Then a friend asked to join me in rescue efforts and Angels Among Us Pet Rescue was formed. We are now the largest all volunteer rescue in the SE US.

So now my personal dogs are Cole.  He was a GSD puppy that someone told me about. A family had purchased him at a rural flea market and put in a back yard where another pup had died a horrible death from parvo. He would have died from parvo as well so I paid them to let me take him. We decided to keep him. Liberty was a little rescue dog that a friend of mine saved when she was young. When Rosemarie passed away, the family didn't know what they were going to do with her, so I told them to bring her to me. She was a senior when we got her and it is just to hard to keep moving them, so we kept her as well.
