Back in college, the following quote from Albert Einstein initiated a realization in me that we’re ALL connected: “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” The animals under our care constantly remind me of what is really important in our fragile lives. I’m fortunate to be part of YHS and our amazing community.

I have been working with and caring for animals professionally since 1998 and find that they still have something to teach me almost every day. There is nothing so enriching or fulfilling as to see an animal in need be healed, whether it be physically in our clinic, or spiritually when you watch them hop into their new families’ cars on their way to their new, happy homes and futures. I am very lucky to have found a home doing what I love at YHS.

YHS has been a big part of my life for the past 10 years. I started out as a volunteer at our PetSmart Cat Adoption Center and worked my way through the Adoption department here on campus. I remember thinking on my first day here that I had finally found my purpose – to be the voice for the voiceless. Every day since, I have strived to be the best I can be for our animals here and for our community. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this organization and to work alongside the amazing people in it. Nothing can beat that wonderful feeling of watching an animal go home to its forever family.

Lost and Found Manager
My time at YHS has shown me how much a shelter provides for its community and how the community comes together for its shelter. I have strived to learn more and more to be there to educate our animals and the people of this community.
There is no greater honor than being a voice for those who have none. Even before I started working here in 2019, I have believed in and supported this amazing organization I am proud to be a part of. The unconditional love provided by animals motivates me every day to help find them all their forever homes.

I’m an animal lover who is proud to have been working in our Finance Department for 8 years. I moved to Prescott 12 years ago and love this community that is so animal friendly. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family kayaking, playing frisbee golf and traveling. I really enjoy working in our finance department and for this amazing organization I know makes such a difference in our community for our homeless animals.
