Erin Talarico, Owner

Having had pets since I was a little girl, my love of animals grew early on. As an adult, for a long time it was me and my two boys, Simba the big orange cat, and Tyler, the boxer/GS mix that had major anxiety issues….I’m now a dog momma to two Lab mix rescue dogs; Georgia and Mason.
I became involved as an admin for Lost Pets of the HV in April 2014, an organization that helps lost and found pets in our area get home.
In March of 2015, my husband Bill and I founded the Facebook organization “Hudson Valley Animal Advocates”. This is a place where we try to educate on animal issues and share important animal related info. We were a huge platform to advocate for Rocky’s Law, an animal abuse registry law in Orange County. We are currently advocating for a tethering law in Orange County, which would limit the amount of time a dog could be tied outside, and in certain weather.
I also volunteer with several local shelters and rescues, often helping to transport dogs to their new forever homes.
As anyone who has met me can attest, I am a HUGE animal lover, and will go out of my way to take care of your pet like they were my own.
