Carrie and her husband Steve have a full menagerie at home: their Golden Retriever Sookie (who is an internet sensation!), 3 cats (Oscar, Kitty, and Gypsy), and several feral cats that are part of Carrie's trap-neuter-return program that she does in her spare time. Caring for homeless cats is a true passion of hers, and she takes great pride in the care that she gives my colony and, when she is able, to find homes for the adoptable in the group. It is her daily joy to care for your patients as her own!
