    Karen Shelton

    Karen pursued a career in accounting and management in the automobile industry before she realized that she would be a thousand times happier working with animals. Over the course of her lifetime, she has had nearly every type of pet imaginable, including ferrets, hamsters, hermit crabs, gerbils, ducks, chickens, guinea pigs, zebra finches, cats, snakes, lizards, quails, rats, turtles, mice, fish, rabbits, dogs, a degu, and (briefly) a chipmunk.

    These days, Karen shares her home with her partner, Dave, their dogs, Jethro and Shannon, and their cat, Little Kitty. Her long-term goal is to become a crazy cat lady when she grows up.
