Priscilla started at a young age with a love and passion for all animals. She wasn’t allowed to have any pets as a child, so she started puppy/kitten sitting for others. Shortly after high school she started her own kitten and puppy day care called “ Kitten and Puppy Paws Day Care.” When she moved out of her parents’ home she started adopting her own fur babies. Priscilla now has four dogs named Miracle, Lola, Hazel and Blue, and hopes for more in the future. Priscilla loves working at Yosemite Pet Hospital caring for your puppies and kittens as well as senior pets.
