I am a Stanly County native who grew up in a household of animal lovers. We have always had pets and was taught at a very young age to show compassion to all walks of life. In 2011 I adopted a puppy from the Stanly County Humane Society for my fiance Danny’s birthday and began volunteering and fostering for the organization and continue to this day. I’ve learned so much about animals from my time there. Witnessing these animals progress from sadness & fear they feel when they first arrive, to the happiness on their faces when they are adopted is wonderful. Their personalities shine through once they start trusting again. The passion I have towards animals’ welfare has led me to this job. I’ve been with Hartsell Funeral Home since 2005, and became a full time employee of Hartsell Pet Cremation in 2018. With the empathy I have for someone who loses a pet, please take comfort in knowing I will treat your pet with the same love and compassion that I show my own.
