Lacy O'Connor

Veterinary Technician

Lacy has always had a love for animals, she rescued her first dog at the age of six when she found a home for the stray dog with family friends.

She graduated from the Veterinary Assistant and Agribusiness Program at Harford Technical High School in 1999. Since then, she has worked in many different fields within the animal community. Her first job was working as a kennel technician and veterinary assistant for a holistic veterinary practice. Lacy also developed her skills through roles within pet care, learning how to care for reptiles and other exotic pets.

Lacy has always loved taking care of young animals, which is something she learned from her aunt who used to care for wild chicks. Taking care and rehabilitating young animals is a passion of hers and she is happy to share this passion with the animals of the Pet Pantry.

When she is not caring for animals at the rescue, Lacy enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, indulging in her love of books of all genres, and caring for her own fur babies — her cats; Momo, Chiyome, Kunai, Hanzo, and Zero.
