Kathy was born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula. She has been working in the veterinary field for 7 years. She is passionate about all animals, but especially has a love of large breed dogs. She has a very handsome 4 year-old Rescue Pitty, Jaxton AKA Jax a 90-pound "lap" dog (or so he thinks so), 8 year old Rescue Chi-Weenie, Roxy. Kathy loves camping, water skiing, and traveling (as long as it’s in the sun.) She is devoted to caring for companion animals. Her ultimate goal is to have a facility dedicated to catering to bully breeds. "Bully" breeds are unfortunately so discriminated against, and they are the most loving breeds, as with all beings, it's all in how one is taught."
