Wendy has dedicated her professional and personal life to her love for animals. She has enjoyed a career working with people and pets for over 27 years. When she moved to Austin, she began volunteering at a veterinary clinic which led to a job as a veterinary technician. She joined Austin Animal Services in 1995 and has worked in a number of roles. In 2017, she accepted her current position as a supervisor for the newly formed Pet Resource Center (PRC). By providing resources, information, and support, the PRC is designed to help keep pets both owned and unowned with their care-taking guardians.
Wendy spends her free time as a professional artist painting pet portraits and hanging out with her three dogs and three cats.
Often considered unadoptable and overlooked for rescue, feral and fractious cats can be saved through a Shelter-Neuter-Return program as well as a progressive Barn Placement Program.
