Owned & Operated Since 2003
Welcome to Animal House Critters. My name is Linda Bloomer and I'm a resident of the Powell Community.
Animals have always been a part of my life. I grew up on a family farm in the Karn's community. From an early age, I helped my sister with her horses, sheep, cattle, and pigs. Showed horses, including draft horses, in 4-H shows. Showed cattle and sheep at local fairs.
I have owned and have a lot of experience with various pets, including dogs, cats, squirrels, chickens, draft horse, guinea pig, chinchilla, chameleon, salt water and fresh aquariums, mice, snakes, domestic rabbits, opossums, etc.
I am the proud owner of 4 dogs, 2 cats (rescues), a sulcate tortoise , and a non-releasable opossum.
Rescuing and caring for all types of animals is my passion and runs deep in my blood. I have dedicated many hours to diversifying my knowledge and continued learning within this field. See what I've been up to below:
