    Amy Wright

    Amy has always had a passion for all animals, so it was no surprise that right out of high school she started working with animals. Amy started in the veterinary field after graduating high school in 2002 as a dog bather and now works as a customer service representative. Between 2002 and present she has worked her way through the industry from dog bather; groomer; veterinary technician; veterinary technical supervisor; staff supervisor; customer care specialist, making her a well rounded member of our staff. Amy also worked for several years in the restaurant industry primarily at Damon’s restaurant of New Castle. She is currently attending Delaware technical community college working toward being an ultrasound technician. Amy has lived in Delaware most of her life but was born in Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania and visits her extended family often there. During her free time she enjoys playing with her daughter Julia, golden retriever Hope, hermit crabs Ben and Jerry, Betta fish Holly, and an African Dwarf frog named Mr. Jingles, all named by Julia with the exclusion of Hope. She has a very energetic personality and is extremely outgoing. She strives to live life to the fullest always ready with a warm smile and kind words.

    "Amy is a pure nurturer at heart and has a love and passion for all animals. She strives to be the voice for the animals, educate others sharing her knowledge to better the lives of all the pets and people she comes in contact with."
