After working as a family law attorney for almost a decade, Lesley decided to leave the practice of law to dedicate herself to animal welfare.
Lesley has experience caring for dogs, cats, fish, birds and other small animals (guinea pigs, mice, and rabbits, for example).
She has been a volunteer at Dakin Humane Society since 2015 where she is a member of the K9 Elite team leaders. As a member of the K9 Elite, Lesley has received training in, not only handling happy-go-lucky dogs, but also those who are a bit more challenging to care for and interact with.
Stella, for whom Stella's Pet Care is named, is a Great Pyrenees/German Shepherd Dog mix who we adopted in 2015 when she was 8 weeks old. We always knew that she was going to be a large dog, but because of the German Shepherd in her we figured that would temper her size a bit. We were wrong. At a year old, Stella was just short of 100 lbs. I haven't had the nerve to have her weighed since that day.
