I’ve had almost every job in the animal rescue world but the biggest job and challenge I’ve faced has been taking care of my very special needs dog, Mylah. When Mylah was diagnosed with diabetes at 10 months old my world changed.
“My foster dog had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. I didn’t have tons of experience on this condition and was redirected to Alicia for advice and support. She talked me through everything and provided me a great amount of knowledge! I am very grateful for her coaching me through this and I feel my foster’s health has benefited greatly. In fact, now that his diabetes is under control we are adopting him ”
