Catie Pletcher

Catie Pletcher has been passionate about animals since age one when she got her first dog, Buffy. Catie has never been without an array of critters living in her home. She began horseback riding lessons when she was seven, a gift for Christmas from her parents, and the gift never ended. Once the love of horse was planted, it grew like a weed. At age 12, she started a pet sitting business with the help of some friends. The business blossomed into a full-time job by the time she was in high school. After 8 ˝ years of pet sitting, Catie retired to focus on college.

Still wanting to be involved with animals, Catie continued to help out at a local horse farm, training the foals and other horses on the farm. She also donated time helping with a dog rescue organization, called Happy Paws Happy Homes. In the summer of 2010, she received an internship with Centre Wildlife Care – a wildlife rehabilitation program – to further her knowledge of animals. By the end of the summer, she was assisting the Orphaned Kitten Foundation, where she used her newly acquired rehabilitation skills to care for young kittens in need of special care.

While in school to become a veterinarian, Catie came across Equissage, a certification program for equine and canine massage. After researching the benefits of massage for animals, she decided to enroll in the program and became certified for both equine and canine massage in May 2010. Now, she is hoping to share her knowledge with you and your furry family members. To contact Catie, please email her at catie@dragonflymassages.com
