All of our adult dogs have been rescued from the Mat-Su, Houston, and Anchorage animal shelters
People enjoy getting out in the spring, but apparently, animals do, too. Laura Atwood, Information Officer for Anchorage Animal Care and Control said the shelter took in 84 stray dogs in March and even more cats, a figure that is likely to go higher throughout the summer.
Born in Southern California, Jenni grew up with sunshine and palm trees, but dreamed of snow-covered mountains. Almost 30 years later, Jenni finally bought a one-way ticket to Alaska, where she went to work as a dog handler for Iditarod Champion Dean Osmar. Over the course of 3 years, Jenni trained, cared for, and managed hundreds of sled dogs for competitive long distance racing. She next worked as a vet tech for 2 years before landing in Anchorage. Jenni is very active in dog training and competitive dog sports, competing in conformation, agility, obedience, herding, nosework, and flyball with her Australian Shepherd, Chevy. She holds a bachelors degree in history from Cal Poly, and completes her family with retired racing sled dog Elim, and a tabby cat, Finn, adopted from the city shelter.
