Mark has improved the lives of animals in more ways than can be simply detailed. He is the Simsbury Animal Control Officer. And in previous careers, he is a retired marine and has been a Hartford Police Officer. Feeling the need to help the military and the military dogs, he created the Heroes and Hounds program. His program sends care packages to military dogs and their handlers. And, if that isn't enough, he volunteers at the CT Humane Society. And, he has actually run the Iditarod. He's even written a book called "Paws, Claws & Tales of Animal Control" available on Amazon!
Mark's knowledge of animals is not only extensive, he has actually done it all!
Briana Dubois, ABCDT
Briana interned with Pet Education and Therapy as part of her Animal Behavior College program. She was loved by everyone ... whether they had two legs or four! So we feel so fortunate that she has become part of the Pet Education and Therapy team.
Briana's empathy toward animals stems from helping her own dog with confidence issues. She understands how difficult issues can be on the owner as well as the dog. Her work has peeked her interest in someday becoming a canine behavior counselor.
Briana has a wide variety of animals including a dog, cat, a gecko and other small animals. Some day she hopes to have her own rescue so her expertise can help even more animals.
