Karyna – Uptown

I’m Karyna and I’ve lived in NYC for almost 2 years now. I moved here from Ukraine and am loving it so far! My biggest passions outside of work are illustration and animation: I do the first and admire the second.

I’m a big animal lover, but dogs are undoubtedly my top pick! Interacting and communicating with dogs doesn’t only bring me joy, but also fills me with energy because they are one of the biggest sources of inspiration in my life. When I was a college student I used to do volunteer work at a rescue dog shelter near my university. The wonderful people I met there worked tirelessly with helping injured and homeless dogs, giving them medical help and trying to find a better life for them. My primary duties were to walk the dogs there, providing them not only with time outside but also with the company and love that they were so desperately needing. I always enjoyed my time with them and wished I could adopt one, but pets weren’t allowed in college dorms.

I truly believe that dogs are man’s best friend because you’ll never find a more selfless, open, and unconditionally loving creature on the planet. But you, as a furry baby parent, know this better than anyone. I am really happy to be a member of the RuffCity family and can’t wait to spend my time with the most precious creatures in the city – your pets.
