Looking for a change, she reached out to Peak City Puppy after being a very happy client for her dogs Molly and Barkley.

Trina R.

Sitter, Joined 2021

Originally from Illinois, Trina has called North Carolina home since 1980 (with a 4 year stopover in Athens, Georgia 'Go Dawgs!') Trina's lifelong love of animals shifted into high gear in 2005 when she became aware of the plight of unwanted, homeless pets and began volunteering at the county animal shelter. Since then she has rescued, fostered, transported and rehabilitated hundreds of animals all over the Southeast.

Shelter work is very rewarding, but after sixteen years Trina needed a break, so she reached out to Peak City Puppy because life is simply not full without lots of furry friends around!

Trina moved to the Triangle two years ago and currently lives in Apex with her husband, teenage son and three rescue pups Fausty, BeBe and Big Boy. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, playing tennis and watching old movies.

Erica is a Triangle native who has lived here for most of her life. She has always been a nature and animal lover, which led her to join the Army. She currently serves in the reserves and has been to some amazing places through the Army, including Dubai, but always felt her heart call her home to the Triangle.

Erica also recently graduated from UNC Law School with a Juris Doctor. Through the trials of law school, her two dogs kept her sane. Her favorite part of her busy days was going for a walk or playing fetch with her two dogs. She rescued her first dog, the Pittie Talullah, from Saving Grace in Wake Forest, and adopted her second dog, the Hungarian Mudi Sully, a year later. Now as a herding dog owner, Erica has recently gotten into the world of Dog Sports and is working on getting titles for her dogs in doing tricks, dock diving, and sheep herding.

Nothing brings Erica joy like working with animals, and she cannot wait to meet the furry or scaley members of your family!
