Alex is one of the newest team members to join The Pet Loss Center, starting just last month! He is originally from Tampa and shares his life with a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Hercules, and a Chinese Li Hua named Mittens. He enjoys powerlifting and eating when he isn’t on the road providing excellent service to our veterinary partners and pet parents. He credits himself for being a divergent thinker and overly creative. One of the things he enjoys the most is helping people through troubling times, which is why he felt he could make a difference as one of our Field Care Specialists.
Another new and great addition to our Tampa team is Jason Dunning. He has been a part of The Pet Loss Center for a little over five months and brings joy in the most difficult times with his radiant smile. He is originally from Cadiz, Kentucky and shares his life with his fiancé, Alissa, and his beautiful boxer, Chloe.
