About Dana Conway
Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or already own a pet with behavioral problems, I am here to help.
I have been rescuing dogs since I was 10 years old when we found a mama cat with babies in our yard and we contacted the local rescue to help us. That was the beginning of my life in the animal rescue world. Long story short, my mother became the president of that rescue and I helped her for the majority of my adolescence until adulthood with both cats and dogs (although dogs were always more of my thing!) when I moved to Florida and started rescue here. First I volunteered at the Humane Society where I worked with the most unadoptable dogs that had no manners at all and were aggressive. Then I volunteered at Second Chance Rescue, did the same there, and I have been a huge part of Sophie's Circle for 5 years now. Basically my entire life has revolved around dogs, and the most troubled ones were always the ones I wanted to work with most, because seeing the light just go off in their head is simply invaluable.
