Ismerays Portales: Kennel Technician

Ismerays Portales: Kennel Technician

Born and raised in Miami, Ismerays' love for animals began at a very early age. She was always trying to adopt every stray animal she could find. At age 7 she was given her first puppy, a Chihuahua named Mickey. She has successfully fostered several animals throughout the years and currently has two she rescued; a four year old Maltese named "Minnie" and a one year old Havanese named "Luke".

Her love of animals led her to Robert Morgan Vocational Institute where she graduated with a Veterinary Assistant degree. She is currently studying to be a Veterinary Technician at Penn Foster College. Ismerays hopes to one day save and cure as many animals as possible as a successful Veterinarian.

When she's not at the IHPH taking great care and playing with our boarders, Ismerays likes to groom her dogs so they are in tip-top shape. She loves to spend time playing and cuddling with them and her family.
