Christine

Day Care Attendant

Christine is a huge advocate for animal rescue.   She has been a volunteer at the Rhode Island Parrot Rescue since 2015.  Although Christine has a degree in Animation, her heart is with the animals.   She shares her home with a flock of 6 birds and her rescue dog, Stella.   Christine has a soft spot for the senior dogs and enjoys educating people on proper animal care.

We asked Christine, “If you were a dog, what breed/mix would you be and why?”

Christine: “I’m a Chihuahua because they think they’re tough (when they are not) and they never shut up.   I’m stubbornly head strong and wary of strangers, but value being around those I love.  On a day below 70 degrees, you can find me huddled under a pile of blankets (that I stole from you)trembling all Chihuahua like because I am always cold.”

Cody

Evening/Weekend Shift Leader

As our Evening and Weekend Shift Leader, Cody is tasked with all things “Town Related”.   Having had a love for dogs since as far back as he can remember, Cody has an innate need to have and be around dogs of all breeds.    Cody’s life goals include owing a Grumble of Pugs to roam around his large fenced in yard.   He is also working towards a degree in Business where he plans to use his daycare experience to open a dog daycare / brewery.

While we asked all of staff “If you were a dog, what breed/mix would you be and why”, we didn’t have to ask Cody this question.   Anyone that knows Cody, knows that Cody would be a Pug.   Cody’s wardrobe includes an impressive variety of pug shirts and pug socks.  Much like a Pug, Cody is attentive and clever, serious but with a laid-back attitude.
