Staff Spotlight

Emma Entner

How long have you been at Five Acres? I’ve been working here for over a year, but began volunteering in 2015.

What do you love most about your job? I love working with the dogs who have behavior problems. Seeing their transformation after working with them is very rewarding.

So far, what has been your favorite moment or memory as a staff member? My favorite memories are the ones I have with my old shelter buddies; the dogs I help.

What drew you to a job at Five Acres? I’ve wanted to be a vet my whole life and volunteering is something that can help you get in. I picked Five Acres because of the no kill policy.

What is your favorite thing about Five Acres? The dogs, duh!

Do you have a favorite past or present Five Acres animal? My favorite will always be Hachi. Hachi and I came into each other’s lives when we were both going through some things and we helped each other in a lot of ways. Hachi is in heaven now, but I have a tattoo on my leg in his honor.

Do you have any pets of your own? I have a dog, cat, and lizard. 

When you are not working, what do you like to do in your free time? Work and school take up a lot of my time, but I like to do outdoorsy stuff and hang out with my friends.
