FFA to PDA: Amy Tyger

What is your current role with the PDA?

My job as a state dog warden includes enforcing licensing and rabies laws, seizing and detaining dogs running at large, investigating dog bites, establishing and enforcing quarantines, enforcing kennel licensing and regulations, maintaining a registry and inspecting dogs declared dangerous by the magisterial district judge, prosecuting dog law violations in court, and providing educational services about dog ownership…just to name a few things!

What was your favorite part of FFA?

The gathering of friends, new knowledge and bragging rights, as my grandfather had the largest milking farm in the area!

How did FFA prepare you for the job you do today?

Knowledge of farm animals.

What is the most important thing you learned from your time in FFA?

How-to’s: growing crops, fertilizing, care of animals and types of farming tools. And never underestimate the animal – no matter how much you think you're in control!​
