Rita Glatzel has worked in animal rescue for over 20 years. Graduating from the University of Missouri – Columbia, she began her career helping children and people with special needs. Along the way, she realized that pets need just as much help as humans do, and she dedicated her life to rescuing and caring for a variety of animals, including many with special needs.

Eddie has been an animal lover for as long as he can remember, having had a myriad of pets throughout his life. He’s a 1988 graduate of Eureka High School and a U.S. Marine Gulf War veteran. Since 1993 he’s worked as a Firefighter, EMT, or Paramedic and is currently a Fire Captain with a Saint Louis County Fire District. Eddie and Rita are excited to be able to have the opportunity to interact with your pets in a loving, safe environment.
