Daycare Attendant/Animal Caretaker

Meghan can either be found in daycare, boarding or greeting pets at the Resort front desk.  Her favorite part of working here is spending time with the dogs in daycare and boarding and seeing how happy and excited both owner and pet are when they’re reunited.

She enjoys being outside, playing with all the daycare dogs and being able to come to work in a happy, fun environment where even the dogs smile.

Her pet family consists of Golden Retriever, Honda; German Shepherd, Sweetie; Viszla’s, Ruby and Yeti; and last but not least, Russian Dwarf Hamster, Bubba.

Daycare Attendant

Marissa is the newest addition to our Daycare Family.  She loves being able to play with and care for our daycare dogs each day.  She also likes making our boarding pets feel as if they are at second home.  Her favorite part of daycare is meeting lots of dogs and watching them make new friends.  She also enjoys helping younger dogs learn how to properly socialize, setting them up for a happy and more fulfilling life.

Marissa grew up on a farm with sheep, chickens, cattle, pigs, horses, lots of sheepdogs and works with the Border Collies to move the livestock.  She has had a huge assortment of pets, including a hedgehog, parakeets, chinchilla, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, a corn snake and of course dogs.

She is currently the proud owner of two Boston Terriers, “The Littles”, Katie and Isabel; and a 1 1/2 year old black lab, Milo.

Her favorite animal is a platypus.  In her free time she enjoys rock climbing and hiking.

Katie A
Animal Caretaker

Katie joined our team in 2016 and enjoys interacting with all the different pets and meeting their owners.  She brings a great work ethic and an eye for detail.

When she graduates she would like to major in Marine Biology.  She would love to complete her bachelor’s degree in Wisconsin and ultimately complete her schooling in Oregon.

At home she cares for three cats, a dog, cow, several chickens and pigs, one donkey, occasional sheep and four rabbits, making her uniquely qualified to care for all the furry friends we see.  She has difficulty choosing a favorite animal, either an elephant, whale or a dog.  In her spare time she enjoys arts and crafts, playing piano and guitar, dancing and singing.
