Meet superstar Urban Hound daycare attendant, Krista! Krista has been with us for 2 years now, and brings a positive attitude and smiling face to each day. Learn more about Krista below!
Where have I seen Krista?
As a morning Daycare Attendant, Krista can often be seen shuttling dogs from the lobby to our play parks during rush hour. She can also be found out and around the South End walking some of our daycare and boarding dogs.
What does Krista do when she’s not at the Urban Hound?
What doesn’t Krista do?! When she’s not hanging out with us, Krista can be found walking some pups in the suburbs. Krista can also be found around New England seeing her favorite bands. So far in 2018, she’s been to 12 shows! Krista’s music taste is diverse and she is always up for an adventure. Krista loves to travel, as well, and #1 on her bucket list are the Northern Lights.
Krista also is a member of the Patriot Guard Riders, a nonprofit dedicated to honorably recognizing active duty service members and veterans in many ways. With permission from families, Krista and her fellow Guard Riders hold flags at funerals and services to show their respect. They also attend send-offs and homecomings to show their gratitude to the troops. Krista and the Patriot Guard Riders will be attending an “Honor Flight” in April, where Southwest Airlines will be providing a plane from Logan to take many WWII and Korea vets to see their monuments down in D.C.
Is Krista secretly a cat lady disguised as a dog lady?
I’m glad you asked! The answer to this question is, well…maybe. Krista is a super cat lover, and her family has rescued many throughout the years. Most recently, they had cats named Capone and Rocky, who were rescues from the Quincy Animal Shelter. The answer, really, is that Krista is a crazy ANIMAL lady. She has a number of dogs she cares for, and she even has pet sit for ferrets, birds, and fish.
