Terry is a retired travel agent, and Joan is a freelance writer (when there is time!), We are long-time animal lovers and had always done pet sitting for family and friends.
We were blessed to have a Shetland Sheepdog for fifteen wonderful years and also cared for a colony of feral cats. We did trap-neuter-return (TNR) with them, which means we humanely trapped the cats one-by-one, had them spayed or neutered, and then returned them to the colony. We socialized the kittens that were born before TNR and found homes for them. Only one cat remains of our colony, a sweet girl named Della, who honored us by moving into our house in 2014. She has adjusted to life indoors beautifully!
We've been doing Scooper Heros for five years now, and we feel as if we have an extended family of dogs and cats to love!
