Amber, is a local girl who grew up in Radford and moved to Blacksburg in 2005. She has one child, a son in his early 20’s. Amber has been a vegetarian since December 1998. Her hobbies are: cooking, crocheting, painting, along with almost any other craft, and running a makeshift soup kitchen for the neighborhood cats.
In March of 2014 Amber’s best friend, thirteen-year-old liver-spotted Dalmatian, Androphonos, passed away from complications from cancer. Drophy was more human than dog and is missed every moment of the day. Dealing with the grief of losing a beloved pet has given Amber a new appreciation for the animals that fill her life from day-to-day. Whether it be here at work, where she gets to meet some amazing pets and people, or at home where she lives with rescue pit bull, Bray, and rescue kitties, Archer and Battle, Amber is always glad to be making a difference.
Mary grew up in New Jersey and then moved to Seattle for college, where she majored in Zoology. In 2005, Mary moved to southwest Virginia and worked at the Blacksburg Library for ten years. She now lives with her husband, dog, and two cats on a small homestead in Floyd County. In her free time she likes to hike, camp, read, and hang out with her friends and pets.
Laurel has been working in her mom’s practice for most of her life. She has two beloved horses, Able the Arabian, and Old Red the Tennessee Walker. She is an active 4H member and has won numerous awards. Laurel enjoys riding, art, and traveling.
