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.

My name is Julianne, I currently reside in Walden. I am a proud new dog mom to an English Bulldog, Walter. Along side Walter are my two cats, Simba and Nala. Animals have made a huge impact on me ever since I could remember. My Aunt lives on a farm, and I am so grateful for all that she has taught me when it comes to not only raising animals but nursing them back to health. Most of my experience is with cats and dogs, of all ages and breeds. I am so excited to be apart of The Traveling Leash and am looking forward to meeting all of your pets!


My name is Sarah, I live in New Windsor with my husband and our two daughters.  We share our home with two senior German Shepherds, a tabby cat and our 6 hens.  I am an animal lover at heart.  I grew up in a home with dogs and cats and believe a house isn’t a home without four-legged family members.  I have experience with dogs, cats, chickens, horses, chinchillas and turtles.  I enjoy getting to know each animal’s personality.   I look forward to getting to know your furry family members.
