My name is Rebekah Hughes, and after living in Los Angeles for almost five years I’ve finally made my way to the East Coast (the coast of the superior pizza!). I grew up in Michigan where I studied theatre, met my husband, and adopted my wonderful cat children. When I’m not taking long walks through the city (mostly to dog watch, of course!) I enjoy writing, reading, and eating a lot of Taco Bell.
I’ve always had a heart for animals and grew up surrounded by them, both dogs and cats. We also used to rescue and find homes for animals that needed a little extra help. For my ninth birthday I got to choose between a party and a dog, and I picked a shaggy little five pound fella named Bubba who was my best friend for many years. Dogs have always held a special place in my heart, and as a little kid I remember having a dog breed book that I would memorize for fun! I also ran a fundraiser in my school for the local Humane Society.
I have years of experience in animal care including dog walking, cat sitting, and overnight in-home stays. I’m comfortable with pups (and cats!) of all temperaments and sizes, and love that every dog has their own unique personality and quirks. I completely understand that your pets are cherished members of your family because mine are, too. I can’t wait to meet and go on adventures with your best friend!
