Kaitlyn's Bio

Hello all, my name is Kaitlyn, and I’m so excited to be here at AHDH. I’ve been in the animal world for about 4.5 years before taking a short break, only to realize that animals are my passion, and this is where I belong. My dream is to own my very own doggy kennel someday! I have a feisty 5-year-old Rottweiler named Monty. He is my protector and a big mamma’s boy. We love snacking and being lazy! I can’t wait to continue learning the AHDH ways and hopefully get to meet you all soon. ❤️

Hello! My name is Maxx. I am a newly licensed radiologic technologist in the Philippines and am a virtual receptionist for AHDH. I am so glad to be a part of AHDH since I have always been an animal lover, and I enjoy doing jobs that are somehow related to my profession while on a break in pursuing my dream to become a doctor. I enjoy being surrounded by my pets when I’m home, but I currently live alone, far away from home. I have a lot of birds, three dogs now, five cats, and two betta fishes. I have many hobbies, but I mostly enjoy sports, working out, music and art-related activities, playing computer games, or hanging out with my friends during my free time.
