Jillian has always had a very strong connection with animals. There was never a time in her life when she didn’t have a dog or cat or both in the house. She would bring home strays and beg her mom to let them to stay. At one point they had 4 dogs and a bunny! Jillian grew up in Toledo OH. When she was old enough, she volunteered at the Humane Society and other local shelters. When she moved to Cleveland, her passion for animals took an entirely different turn, and she worked at another local Boarding facility for 4 years. Through that time, she also volunteered at For The Love of Pits and the Cleveland APL. Jillian couldn’t imagine her life without a job like this. She particularly enjoys watching dogs grow, learning their personalities and developing a bond fill with trust. She currently resides in the Cleveland area with her dog, Dunkin, and Mini lop Benny.
