Jess - Technician Coordinator  

Adopted: December 2015

Jess has held an interest in helping animals all of her life. In fact, one of her favorite childhood memories is a story she tells while grinning. Jess discovered one of her rooster's toes had lost its toenail; she immediately took action to clean and wrap the toe. Jess continues her story with a chuckle, “My mother received a fright when she walked into the kitchen and discovered a rooster sitting in the sink while I was performing this first aid.".
