Bailey Parker

Resident Care/Volunteer Coordinator

There is no doubt in my mind that my purpose in life is to care for and advocate for all non-human animals. My passion for caring for others started at a young age. In my memory there was not a significant moment that told me this, I have had a genuine connection to animals my entire life.

Before becoming a caregiver I interned with the Education and Outreach Program. Having met the residents, I knew this was the place for me. The following summer I interned with the care team and when a position opened up I was given a wonderful opportunity. I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of this amazing care team!

Belle, one of our horse residents, is the sweetest old lady! I have really been drawn to spending time with her. My favorite memory was not too long ago when Belle let me braid her hair. At first, I wasn’t sure she was comfortable with me brushing her mane. I held the brush at my side and she nudged it with her nose. I really appreciated her telling me she was ok with it and wanted me to brush her. Afterward, I decided to give her a fun hair due and put a few braids in her mane. What a BEAUTIFUL soul she is! I have never felt more relaxed than when I spent that time with her.
