Member Concierge


Hello, my name is Katelyn. Throughout my life, I have been a huge animal lover. When I was little our family got our first of many family dogs and my grandma took me to go trail riding. Those experiences completely changed my life because that is where my love of animals really started and grew. When I was in my first two years in high school was I involved in the National FFA organization and I showed market steers. Through that opportunity, I gained a love for veterinary medicine which caused me to go into the Veterinary Science Program at Pima JTED. I am currently in my second year in the program and have gained my Pet CPR and First Aid Certification as well as my Fear-Free Animal Handling Certification. In this program, I am also working toward my Veterinary Assistant License and NAVTA certification. I currently have two dogs named Saddie and Stella. Stella is a 90-pound Chocolate Labrador mix and Saddie is a 55-pound Golden Retriever Australian Shepherd mix. I am experienced in caring for dogs, cats, and various species of livestock like horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs. I am excited to meet you and your dog.

Park Rufferee


I’m Greg, and working with animals has been a lifelong journey for me. Growing up, my home was always filled with pets. Dogs, cats, horses, and even mules were a part of my family. As a teenager, I developed a deep passion for animal welfare, which led me to start volunteering at a local wildlife rescue. Since then, I’ve been following my passion wholeheartedly.

Volunteering in shelters has given me valuable experience and a strong connection with animals. I’ve always wanted to combine my love for the outdoors with my affinity for animals, and that’s when I found the perfect match. It’s an incredible way for me to spend my days, exploring and adventuring with my furry companions. The joy and fulfillment I experience from being in the company of these amazing animals is simply unmatched.


I grew up around EMTs, Firefighters, and Dogs. I have my CPR certification and I am currently in college to get my doctorate degree. I am looking forward to meeting your dogs and being able to provide them a safe place to play.


I gained experience through the west-med veterinary assistant program. I am a (NAVTA) certified Veterinary assistant, going to the University of Arizona to pursue a career as a veterinarian. I am also Fear Free Certified.


My name is Mollie and I’m currently a junior at the University of Arizona studying veterinary science and entomology. In my free time I ride for the UofA equestrian team, foster dogs for the humane society, and enjoy playing with my gerbil Frank. I am excited to be part of the Dogs of Tucson team to interact with a variety of dogs and create a safe fun place for them to play.


I’ve chosen to work with dogs mostly because I’ve always loved them. I find working with dogs very fulfilling and something I genuinely enjoy doing. Being able to work and interact with dogs has lead me to the first job that I was excited to do and I have learned more than I could possibly put into words.


I’ve been a huge animal lover my whole life and I’ve always wanted to work with animals. . I have experience working in doggy daycare and that as well as Dogs of Tucson is a step towards the career path I want to go down.


Hello, my name’s Samara, I’ve lived with and taken care of all kinds of animals my whole life. Dogs, cats, and exotic pets such as ferrets, snakes and even tarantulas. I have experience feeding, playing, and administering oral medication. I am excited to get to know you and your dog at The Bark Park.


I have always leaned towards animals every opportunity I got. At 16 I started working at animal hospitals assisting in surgeries and gaining knowledge. I am majoring currently in veterinary studies with an emphasis on livestock and equine at the University of Arizona. I can’t wait to give all my love to your dogs!

The Pack Leaders

frankie and robert dogs of tucson team image

Frankie & Robert

Frankie, an entrepreneur at heart, has been talking about starting a dog-related business for over 10 years. When she met Robert, an even bigger animal lover, the two of them knew that one day they would build a safe place for dogs and find a way to help animals in need. The two share a passion for Dogs of Tucson as well as many hours of experience training and being trained by dogs.

Frankie also founded Working For Wags, which is a team of local pet sitters and dog walkers that provide in-home services throughout Tucson. The Working For Wags team is made up of vet techs, vet assistants, dog daycare specialists, and other dog-trained professionals. 🐾

Frankie’s Certifications

Frankie has years of knowledge and experience built from working in the food industry, retail, and running membership-based programs. She has a vast knowledge of customer service and knows what it takes to run a business.

Robert has experience with various animals from working on a ranch, as well as a long history of being an animal lover. He has an extensive background in construction and is an electrician by trade. Robert founded and runs his business, M78 Electric.

Their pack consists of their dogs Max, Maddie, and Macy, a sulcata tortoise named Michael, and three chickens, Ethel, Betty, and Angel.

  • Max was found in a dumpster as a puppy. Cat, Frankie’s daughter, met Max at an animal shelter and asked her mom to come to meet him. Max has been with Frankie now for 13 years.
  • Maddie was adopted by Frankie & Robert from PACC. She taught them a lot about patience and helped them become better dog owners. Maddie has been part of the pack now for 5 years.
  • Macy is the newest member of the pack. She is the happiest fur-riend! She loves to run and play, but her favorite things are tennis balls.

Their pack is one of the many reasons that Frankie & Robert are so passionate about The Bark Park. The couple loves walking their 3 dogs, however, they encounter many loose dogs on their daily walks. Dog owners, you may be familiar with the dangers of not knowing whether a loose dog you encounter is friendly or not!

If you ask Frankie what made her want to move forward now, she will tell you the final push happened when walking their dogs. They encountered a loose, unfriendly dog in the park by their house, which resulted in an hospital stay for their youngest pup, Macy.
