Saving animals... a way of life
Animals have always been a constant in Angie Rutherford's life. From parakeets
to dogs, horses to guinea pigs, Angie's life has always been for and about animals.
Wanting to work with animals, Angie became an Animal Control Humane Officer in Arkansas working to save and
assist animals in the southern part of Arkansas. Life as an Animal Control Officer in rural Arkansas can be very tough and
heartbreaking. Angie did her best to work with what she had to work with her and was able to save many animals that would
otherwise have been euthanized or worst. In 2012, Angie and Karin TarQwyn met by chance during a lost dog case. Over the
years, Angie selected three dogs that would be adopted and trained for the K9 teams at Lost Pet Professionals. After experiencing the sudden passing of her husband and best
friend, Bob, she made the decision to make a change and join the K9 Handlers at LPP.
