About Me
 

Welcome to Karenís Canine Care! My name is Karen Brooks and I have always had two passions in life: Nursing and animals. After working for many years in the critical care nursing field, I decided at the age of forty to pursue my second passion, caring for animals.

I have over 25 years experience owning and working with canines, my current family includes 3 rescue dogs and they can be seen throughout my website. I also have lots of experience caring for cats. Growing up I lived around several farms and had the pleasure of caring for many different types of livestock. I have cared for everything from iguanas, goats, cattle, chickens, hens and the domestic hamster and rabbits. I have a great appreciation and compassion for all animals.

The following are some of my credentials for pet care:
