We see Donna every day at Poochie-Pets headquarters. She delivers our supplies in the morning and picks up our shipments in the afternoon. Donna has been our UPS® delivery person since Poochie-Pets was just a small, out-of-home operation. Donna remembers well how she found herself becoming one of the Poochie-Pets team. “I would be delivering things all the time to Poochie-Pets,” she says, “and finally I asked what they did, so they showed me all around their work. I said they should check out UPS® to be their official delivery company, and I’ve had them on my route ever since.”
Donna has moved all over the east side of the United States from New Hampshire to Cincinnati. She has been settled in Connecticut now for 18 years and lives with her husband, two dachshunds, one Chihuahua, and four cats. Donna enjoys tai chi, yoga, and spending time with her 2-year-old grandson.
“You get to meet a lot of people on deliveries,” says Donna, “and some of them you get to know and you become friends. That’s the part of the job I like the most. That’s how it was with the girls at Poochie-Pets; they’re like family now, and I always enjoy going there.”
