I attended Berry College and I loved the Rome area so I settled here. In March 2008 I joined Compassionate Paws. My German Shepherd, Auggie, turned out to be a very good partner to visit with. Auggie’s strong areas were hospice visits and anything to do with kids. I’m still visiting with dogs related to Auggie today. Compassionate Paws is a wonderful group of people who care about their community and helping others. When you visit with your Pet Partner I believe we receive more in return than we give. I love being an evaluator and meeting the prospective handlers and animals.
