Employee of the month
Amanda Elder, Guest Services Attendant
As a child Amanda Elder wanted to be a veterinarian, so it's not surprising that taking care of the dogs and cats at Second Home Pet Resort is her priority. As Guest Service Attendant, "my job is to take care of the pets of people who are going on vacation," she said. She is able to give them lots of love, take them for potty breaks and comfort them while their families are away.
While growing up, her family had a variety of animals. "I rescued any stray that we saw and took them home," she said. "We always found homes for them."
As she comes up on her one-year anniversary at Second Home, Amanda said, "The rescues are absolutely my favorite. I feel like I'm making a difference in some way."
Amanda also works in doggy day care and gets to work with those pet parents. "They know how much I love their pets," she said. "When their pets recognize you, it's so exciting."
Although Second Home is a temporary home for pets, it's truly a home for them while people are away. "We treat your pets like family; they are our first priority," Amanda said.
