Hello my name is Leslie Orton, I am a divorced mother of three grown sons and one adorable grandson. My oldest two sons live in NJ and my youngest son is a Captain in the US Army, stationed in Alaska. I became a certified dog trainer in 2009 and I became actively involved in dog rescue in 2010 with the rescue of a deaf dog, we named Walker. After that I have fostered many Border Collies and Australian Shepherds who were deaf and/or blind due to bad breeders. I lost my deaf and blind Australian Shepherd, Kelso, in 2019. I was a dog trainer at Petco for several years and had a small business in dog sitting and dog walking from 2010 to 2013. I have also had a career in Human Resources as well as Internal Auditing. I am looking forward to working with SOP as Treasurer to help those who are in need of our services.
