With The Connecticut State Animal Response Team (CTSART) at The Watertown Fire Department in Watertown, Connecticut. A concise overview of animal sheltering as it works in a co-located shelter. Providing a hands-on demonstrations of shelter set-up and operations. Also providing animal behavior pearls valuable in understanding the safety and dynamics of a shelter environment.

With ( Teddy and Amigo ) at home, Teddy was adopted from Teddy is a rescue from ROAR Ridgefield Operation Animal Rescue (ROAR) out of Ridgefield Connecticut. Amigo was found at a construction site and I adopted from the person who found him. As I do not have kids of my own. So these pets are my kids. Life would not be the same without Amiago and Teddy.
