    Justin is a returning team member at Camp Bow Wow Carmel; having been with us when we first opened in 2008. He helped assemble and install each of the cabins and cots found in the facility. Justin attended Ball State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Telecommunications. As Kennel Manager, he also provided quality care and comfort to the many homeless animals of The Humane Society for Hamilton County, where he continues to donate his time. Justin possesses a Third Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo that he earned locally in Fishers. He has three dogs of his own at home. Sammie, a loyal Belgian Malinois whom he met through our foster program here at Camp; Reggie, an eccentric Border Collie who has entertained him and been by his side for over ten years; And Flounder, a huggable American Pit Bull Terrier mix who convinced Justin to bring him home from Hamilton Humane within the first three months of his tenure there. Justin has a serious soft spot for dogs. He is always equipped with a leash wherever he goes. He and his girlfriend, Alysanne enjoy participating in canine transports in their spare time, helping deliver dogs to their forever homes and service jobs. Justin’s passion is helping ease dogs out of their shells and insecurities and believes firmly that they are just as deserving of respect and dignity because “dogs are people too”.
