Meet Liberty (Libby) Jackson

A pioneer in Animal-Assisted Occupational Therapy, Libby Jackson’s passion has people across America wanting to be just like her! The Portland native is one of only a handful of OT professionals speaking, publishing and teaching fellow practitioners within her discipline how to collaborate with dogs in therapy practice. 

Meet Laura Amiton

Summer-girl Laura Amiton's sense of fun and knack for customer service recently brought The Filling Station Pet Supplies to Tigard, a shop where premium pet products are loaded into your car -- WITH a courtesy windshield wash. Hearkening back to the service of old-time gas stations, there’s even a drive-thru, and staff in retro uniforms.

Meet Camilla Mortensen

Among a litany of successes, Camilla Mortensen admits to one “big” failure. His name is Biggie, a death-row Pittie out of Los Angeles, and he WAS her foster dog.  "I had adopted a Pit mix puppy, Rhoda, from a rescue in The Dalles, and several friends fell in love with her," she says. "Rhoda was — and is — a great testament to what lovers Pits can be."

Meet Jaime Ross

Staying organized and on top of things comes naturally to the general manager of A Dog’s Best Friend Doggy Daycare’s two Vancouver locations. Formerly an administrator/executive assistant, Jaime never imagined herself in the pet business, but when friend and former employer Anne Nipp acquired the businesses in 2011, she recruited Jaime to manage them.
