I met Lisa 8 years through our shared interest in horses. Through this time I have seen her care for and assist countless animals, including her own horse, her 2 dogs and 2 cats. While we had our horses at the same facility she was always willing to check in on my horse and any other animals she felt needed extra attention. Lisa has a huge heart and infinite knowledge about all animals big and small. Even though I am a wildlife biologist whenever I find a lost cat or dog she is the first person I call as she always knows what to do and is in touch with the right people at rescue organizations and local vet clinics. I have seen her use her own money to spay and neuter countless barn cats to help control local pet populations. Finally she always encourages her friends to adopt animals in need, in fact my two cats came from her and I don't think there is a person who knows Lisa that hasn't taken in a pet or two. Her recent adoption of Dixie (rescued from the Thailand dog meat trade) demonstrates her abilities, in the last month I have seen this insecure little dog adapt to a foreign environment and flourish under her guidance. I would never hesitate to have Lisa care for my pets as she has consistently proven her aptitude with animals.
