I am a retired heavy equipment mechanic and US Army vet. Having animal companions has always been a part of my life. Over the years many of my friends have come from shelter situations and have been some of the best companions anyone could ask for. I enjoy strolling around the bike/hiking paths with my buddy Charlie, a 6 year old Lancashire Healer. I can’t help but to help those that I am able and so I have become involved with JCAPS where I can put my skills and time to use for the betterment of the lives of the the people and animals in our community.
