The Fur Baby Momma

Jennifer Marshall

Jennifer volunteers at several pet shelters in her area and is the proud pet parent of three plucky pound puppy pals. She also loves alliteration.

Growing up on her family’s midwestern farm with 5 big dogs (plus a couple of couple, a dozen chickens, and 2 cows!) gave Jennifer a genuine love for animals and a LOT of hands-on experience.

When she’s not cheering on her beloved Vikings, you can usually find her at the dog park or on the back porch unsuccessfully playing fetch with her mutts.

Jennifer’s Dogs

  • Amber the German Shepherd
