Monica has been working with animals for twenty years. Allergic to
pets until an adult, she now shares her life and home with five Chihuahuas
- Spencer (1995 - 2012), Lazlow (1996 - 2011), Winston (1995 - 2009), Pancho (1998 - 2012), and Dudley - and two Great Pyrenees named
Abbington (2001 - 2008) and Quinn. When the allergies subsided, her passion for dogs resurfaced
and flourished while working with local animal shelters and Humane Organizations
where she helped to create programs for Adoption, Fostering, and Spay/Neutering.
She continues to work with a local organization's Spay/Neuter program
and with various rescue groups. It was about this time when she had
the idea to open her Dude Ranch for Dogs. She quit her "real"
job and went to work for a veterinarian to gain medical knowledge, so
that she might be equipped to handle what may come her way when she
opened her facility. During that time she researched the best and worst
boarding kennels and planned for the opening of her own. Four Paws Ranch
opened in October, 2001.
