Position: Kennel Attendant
Current Home: Pawcatuck, CT
Hire Date: May 21, 2021
Growing up has always felt like living in a zoo for Tia.
She always had a variety of small animals in the house ranging from dogs and cats to guinea pigs and rabbits.
She currently lives with four cats and five dogs at her family home in Pawcatuck, CT.
The current list of canines in her home include a Corgi/Pomeranian mix, a Chihuahua mix and a Sheltie mix. The last two dogs, a Lab mix and a Boxer mix, belong to Tia’s sister.
Tia graduated from Stonington High School, and for her senior project, she volunteered at the Westerly Animal Shelter.
During her time there, she used social media to help some of the animals get adopted. Tia helped out during adoption events and also wrote a research paper on the difference between rescue shelters and high kill shelters, showing the benefits of adopting from your local shelter instead of your local pet store.
