Our Kennel Staff
Kelly Adam, kennel manager, was born and raised right here in Kutztown, PA. After graduating from Penn State, she was looking for a job working with animals while staying close to home. She has been the kennel manager at Silver Maple for 12 years, and the dog trainer for seven years. She started working in boarding kennels in the summer of 1998. At work, she enjoys helping animals feel at home while boarding with us, and helping clients overcome issues with their dogs through training. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also enjoys spending time with her rescued pit bull mix, Morgan. She adopted Morgan through Mostly Muttz Rescue, a local rescue group. Kelly is very passionate about rescued dogs, especially pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Fun Fact: She enjoys growing fresh vegetables in her garden and then transforming them into delicious food.
Mandy Wagaman, assistant kennel manager, can most always be found taking care of dogs and cats in our kennel or giving baths throughout the week. When not working, Mandy can usually be found at home on the farm in Mohrsville, PA. At home, she enjoys spoiling her many fur-babies and spending time with her family and friends. She also loves playing board and card games, as well as science; she is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in theoretical physics and finishing her Master's degree in astrophysics. Fun Fact: Mandy is ambidextrous, which means she can use both her right and left hands equally well.
