Tammy had a love for dogs of all breeds and sizes. In her adult life, she grew up grooming and boarding dogs with her mother Martha at different shops then Heber Pethouse opened in 1995. Her passion for animals helped drive the success of her business that provided a livelihood for both herself and family while giving the community of Heber-Overgaard a sense of comfort knowing their pets were in good hands. When she was not busy working, she enjoyed spending time with her family, friends, baking, and watching football (aka yelling at the TV).
