Meet the Staff:

Courtney McNeely

Ever since I was a little girl I have been an animal lover.
All animals big or small have a special place in my heart
 and life. Throughout my life I have always had an assortment of pets, but at 10 years old my family and I adopted two very special little Miniature Pinschers. This is where my love of dogs started. As I got older I realized I wanted nothing but to work with animals and be the one to start their tail wagging when I walk in the door. When I found wags and barks it changed my life and now my number one goal is to make every dog feel as happy as I do when I’m around them.

Reagan Shirley

 My name is Reagan Shirley and I am currently a senior at Slinger High School. After high school I plan on attending Veterinary Tech school and becoming a Vet Tech. Ever since I was younger, I’ve always had a passion for animals. I’ve spent years volunteering at a horse farm. I’ve grown up with animals all my life and I have two dogs and a horse of my own. I really enjoy working at Wags & Barks because we have a great group of people and I love interacting with all of the dogs.

Nic Bauer

  I am quiet, caring, and love being around dogs. I have worked with dogs for three years; in a kennel, dog day care, and with a working dog on a ranch. I like to make sure the dogs are happy and cared for. I make an extra effort to make nervous dogs feel comfortable. When I can find time, I also like to work with bison and other large animals.
