Shahla Dabiri grew up in Texas and has always loved all animals. She currently has four dogs, two birds and helps with her six grand dogs and her neighbor’s two small dogs. Shahla has been active for the last four years in the central Texas area with Short Mugs Rescue Squad, Dachshund Rescue of Houston, Draco’s Bulldog Rescue and American Boston Terrier Rescue. Some of her rescue work is not affiliated with a rescue club, as she is known to help lost dogs find their owners on any given day.
Prior to moving to Rim Rock, Shahla resided in Houston for over forty years, where she raised her family and taught elementary and Multiple Impaired Students for thirty years. As an educator she focused on special needs children, resulting in a very rewarding career and each student leaving their own indelible mark on her heart.
She is enjoying her retirement from teaching while devoting her time to family, animal rescue and Nuzzles’ clients. Shahla enjoys spending time with her grandchildren — both the two-legged, and four-legged varieties. She also loves being close to her own two grown children and all that central Texas has to offer.
