Tillie – Might, Power & Battle

I was waiting all summer of 2017 for my perfect dog to come through the  Animal Adoption Center. I stopped in frequently; followed closely on social media, fostered a few and then finally found a puppy I set my heart on.

Juno The Wonder Mutt

Four years ago we lost our 16 year old mixed breed dog to an aggressive form of cancer. My husband and I were devastated and I hated how quiet the house was.

Drift ~ The Traveling Cat

We adopted Drift in July 2018 from the Animal Adoption Center in Jackson, Wyoming. The struggle of choosing the right pet was real.

Bert & Baby – A Love Story

We first moved to our new house in February and our dog Baby went from living in a home with other dogs to being an only child. Before adopting Bert we would come home and he would not have touched his breakfast or daily bone and he would be over joyed we came back.

The Adventures of Chet and Cooper

We knew that our playful husky Cooper needed a “buddy”, and Chet was just the pup for the job! He is the sweetest boy and perfect addition to our house.

Tufo Party of 5

When my (now) husband and I moved to Jackson 3 ½ years ago from New York City, we were anticipating a fun, short lived adventure out west that would culminate with us moving back to the big apple.

Newman’s Own Foundation

The Animal Adoption Center (AAC)’s Spay/Neuter Wyoming Program has received a $15,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation, the independent foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. 

The one, the only, the chubbiest, Wasabi

I never was the biggest fan of cats…. That is until I started work as an Adoption Counselor for the Animal Adoption Center in November of 2015. Each day, while cleaning Kitty City I became more and more enamored and mystified by these meowing, captivating little sass-pots!

Sky Sled Dog Baby

I started looking at shelter dogs as soon as I got my own place in Jackson (beginning of winter 2016).  A friend who had met Sky at the AAC, suggested she might be my speed, so I went in a couple days later and took her for a night.  

Sweet Sadie

We met Sadie at the PPP in Jackson the spring of 2004. My husband was still missing our German Shepherd, Doro, who we lost in 2002. He was not looking but Sadie charmed him with her tricks and sweet nature.


Ella Ella Ella! My mostly confident, mostly hound type dogs story began on some dock somewhere in Mexico, where she was picked up with her sissy and brought into a rescue.

Cobia Jean

When I think back to the day we met our sweet girl I always smile. My boyfriend, now husband, and I had been dog shopping for months. This would be my husband‘s first pet and a huge step in our relationship.
