Walt has over thirteen years of experience working in animal control and has been working with Wakulla Animal Services for the past year. His favorite thing about working at Wakulla Animal Services? The people of Wakulla County!
His favorite animals are definitely the dogs. He brings his rescue dog, Maggie to work with him and she has become the unofficial “Senior Office Dog” and is beloved by staff and visitors alike. His favorite quote is “Be the voice for those who have none.”
Chris Merritt, Animal Services Specialist
Chris has been working with Wakulla Animal Services for almost a year, but her love for animals has no limits! Previously employed as a vet tech, her favorite thing about working at Wakulla Animal Services is the ability to do more good for the animals here than she was able to as a vet tech.
Although Chris shares an office with Walt (and Maggie), she is definitely a cat lover more than a dog lover. Her favorite quote is “Time spent with cats is never wasted.”
Robert Davis, Head Kennel Tech
Robert has been an employee at Wakulla Animal Services for a year, but has been a volunteer for far longer. After retiring and spending hours volunteering daily, Bonnie offered to hire him and he’s been a dedicated employee ever since! Robert is passionate about the hard work that goes into taking care of the animals. When asked what his favorite thing about working here is, his response was, “It’s hard work and I like it.”
Like Bonnie, Robert loves all animals and doesn’t have a favorite. His favorite quote is “When you live for a strong purpose, then hard work isn’t an option. It’s a necessity.”
