Aimee Davis

Aimee was born in Virginia and has one younger brother.   Before relocating to the Atlanta area in 1983, Aimee had been living most of her life in Reno, NV.  Aimee has worked with Pitbulls for over 20 years. She started by showing in the UKC for 10 years, and then realized that she needed to focus her time, knowledge, passion and love for the breed in a more positive manner. This is where she entered the rescue world... after many years of doing rescue Aimee decided a real change needed to be made at the source of the problem. With this thought she founded, PITTIES IN THE CITY. Aimee now dedicates her hours and days educating, helping and saving this wonderful breed. Between working in veterinary medicine and outreach rescue... she lives, eats and sleeps Bullies!

Why she does this:  "I love working emergency medicine and specializing in surgery.  I have been doing this for over 16 years and the experience has given me the opportunity to help so many wonderful animals.  I love the satisfaction of knowing I helped an animal recover and return home to their family".

She currently lives in Conyers with her family and her four- legged children, Riley and Bob Marley.  Riley (pictured here) is about 5 years old and enjoys such hobbies as playing ball, taking long walks and finding scraps of things he's not supposed to eat and rapidly consuming them.  Bob Marley is a four year old male tabby cat who enjoys eating and basking in the undying devotion of his human servants. Or so he thinks.

Jessica has enjoyed many aspects of life with animals and veterinary medicine including but not limited to: working on a farm with sheep, goats, llamas, many different breeds of herding dogs, even the occasional haystack. She has also enjoyed equine phlebotomy and dabbled in exotic medicine.

Naomi Smith

Veterinary Assistant

Since 2015

Naomi Smith

Naomi was born and raised on a Caribbean island and worked for a local animal shelter/hospital for 10 years. With no permanent vet living on the island and minimal technology for diagnostics, she and other volunteers did all they could to support the local community's animals. Naomi worked with dozens of veterinarians who visited the island offering low-cost animal care. She says that one of her most memorable experiences is when she was in charge of post-operable care for the organization, WorldVets, on two different occasions. She worked mostly with dogs and cats but also had experience with livestock. Naomi said her mother homeschooled her for ten years and then she later moved to Georgia to attend Agnes Scott College; majoring in neuroscience - with plans to go to college of veterinary medicine after graduating.

Why she does this: "I am very passionate about my hobby and career path with working with animals. I find myself enjoying every moment in this profession."

Why she does this: "I love working with animals and identifying issues that would not otherwise be so easily clear since our pets cannot talk to us! There is a great satisfaction in being a part of recovering or even keeping healthy a pet that clearly is not able to do these things for themselves and knowing that I was involved in helping an owner continue to live their lives with their beloved companion animal for that much longer! It is a very rewarding experience everyday!"
