Henry Bishop – Pet Care Associate since June, 2017
Hello! My name is Henry Bishop. I have always had the biggest passion for animals ever since I can remember. Now that I am older, being able to work with all kinds of animals is so fulfilling for me. I have worked for an animal shelter before and enjoyed every minute of it. Working as an Associate now is just as rewarding.
I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a BS in Biology. My plan is to become a Physician Assistant and also work with animals on a more exotic level. My dream job is to work with sea turtles!
Working for Odds & Ends is where I can provide the best of my abilities to care for pets when clients need it! I strive to provide the greatest satisfaction for each client and to make sure each pet I care for receives the best care possible!
Kelly Furlong – Pet Care Associate since December 7, 2018
I was born and raised in Georgia. I grew up with a house full of various animals, from horses to tree frogs, and nothing much has changed in my adulthood. Actually, my first job was at the local veterinary hospital to help pay off our never-ending bill. I am a mother of three beautiful children. My son is 15 and my daughters are 9 and 5 years old. We, currently, have a Rocky Mountain gelding who has the mentality of a puppy, a black Labrador, five cats (one who is approximately 22 years of age and she is still very spunky and spry) and a 55 gallon tank of various fresh water fish.
I worked as a 911/Police/EMS operator in the metro Atlanta area for over 10 years. I decided to follow my heart and return to working with animals and it has been, by far, the best decision I have ever made. I volunteered as a mentor, with the aid of horses, for emotionally troubled children who had come from abusive homes or bullying situations. I also worked as a ranch hand at the same farm, working with three horse herds (where my horse boarded), donkeys, cats, dogs and chickens. My dream was to go back into the veterinary field. I worked as a veterinary nurse/veterinary technician for over four years.
Although, I truly loved working in the veterinary field, I was missing out on very important events and memories with my children due to long shifts and unpredictable emergencies. Caring for animals, being a mother, and loving animals and my children are the reason I was put on this on this earth; through this amazing company, I am getting to live my dream and fulfill my purpose!
Tammy Queen – Pet Care Associate since July, 2016
Hello! My name is Tammy Queen. My love for animals and my need to be the one to take care of my granddaughter, Carlee, are very important priorities for me.
I have three grandchildren in total but my granddaughter, Carlee, is my world and will forever be my baby.
I was born in North Carolina raised in Tennessee but returned to North Carolina to meet and marry my high school sweetheart. We’ve been together since 1985. I am the proud wife of a retired Army First Sergeant who teaches JROTC at Adairsville High School.
We will always be a proud Military Family and will never be too far from our son who is a college graduate from the University of Tennessee, and our daughter who is the happily married mom of my 3 grandchildren.
I enjoy walking and camping and, of course, the beach!
I currently have 6 dogs and 1 cat of my own and will be involved in animal rescue for many years to come.
