    Meaghan Horel

    Meaghan joined us early in May of 2015 as the new kennel attendant.  She enjoys all aspects of her work, especially being able to play with the dogs and cats that board with us.  She loves all animals, and hopes to one day help run a rehabilitation and rescue center catering towards military dogs.  In her free time Meaghan enjoys reading books, cuddling with her family's grey tabby cat, Cinders and their Bichon Frise, Max.  To stay active, she enjoys swimming, hiking with Max, and golfing.
