Samantha Ferguson

Kennel Attendant - Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary

Stanton, MI 48888


I was a dedicated, animal loving volunteer daily at Montcalm County Animal Shelter for almost a year and I did dog walking, cleaning, and animal socializing. I have also spent time job shadowing at Town and Country Animal Clinic. Whenever needed, I dog sit for people in my town. I also have been working at Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary since April as a kennel attendant and help our vet staff with medical things when needed. Animal rescue is a passion along with the overall care of animals. Authorized to work in the US for any employer
