Meet Tammy & Sarah! 
Sarah was born in Baltimore, Maryland and then moved to Rochester when she was 6, staying there until she graduated from Victor in 2014. She went to school in North Carolina for her freshman year of college and then transferred to Penn State.  Sarah is now in their online program to wrap up her degree - Business with Marketing and Management. She has always had pets from just a turtle and fish when she was 8 to her family dogs; a German Shepherd, Beagles, Shih Tzu's and Chocolate Labs - she absolutely loves having a job that she can play with mini friends!

Tammy has loved animals since she was a baby. Instead of dressing dolls up in their doll clothes, she would dress her stuffed animals and even her pets in the doll clothes! She grew up with Chihuahuas and cats...who wore plenty of doll clothes!  Until recently, Tammy was a Property Manager for over 15 years but decided to finally follow her dreams...and that is to work with animals. This also allows her more time to spend home with her family! She has 2 children (1 son and 1 daughter) and of course, 2 dogs, Caramel (a Lab/Boxer/Pit mix), Tank (a Chihuahua/Miniature Black Lab mix), 2 cats, Blaze and Smokey, Honey Bee (the Lion Head bunny) and a fish! Being able to spend such quality time with animals is truly a blessing...she treats every single animal as if they were her own. They're our kids, after all!

Did you know...

Caring for a pet is worth a lot more than just close companionship! 
Here's 8 Impressive Health Benefits of Pet Ownership:

 1. Stress relief.  There's a reason some universities and grad schools have programs that bring in pets during finals week. Simply being in the same room as a dog or cat can lower your cortisol levels, and even more so if you're petting them.

2. Improved physical fitness. If you've ever taken care of a friend or family member's dog, then yo u've probably noticed a significan t increase in your activity over the day simply by taking the animal out to use the restroom or taking them on a short walk. Owning a pet not only gets you up and moving more, but it can help you be more productive throughout the day since your energy is already up.

3. Decrease chronic pain. Pets are shown to increase endorphin levels. Endorphins can be powerful pain relievers, which you may have noticed if you've ever experienced a runner's high. In addition, caring for a pet can be a positive distraction from pain.
4. Lower cholesterol. A survey by the Australian National Health Association showed that people, especially men, who own pets have lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels than non-pet owners.

5.  Lower blood pressure.  Along the lines of lower stress and cholesterol, pets also significantly decrease blood pressure, according to a study at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
6. Allergy prevention in children. A study published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy demonstrated that children exposed to pets when they were less than six months old were less likely to develop allergies later in life.
7. Overall mental health. Pets not only give you unconditional love, but they also give you something to love and care for as well. Pets boost self-esteem, along with feelings of autonomy and confidence, making you feel more self-acceptance.
8. Improve relationships. The Journal of Applied Developmental Science found that young adults with pets were better able connect to others and within their communities than those without pets. Pets can also be wonderful for families because they teach children kindness, respect, and responsibility.
