Yuri Pryor joined Animal Humane's team in July of 2006 as an Animal Care Attendant. He was then promoted to Animal Care Supervisor the summer of 2008. He has 2 dogs (both pit bull mixes), and 2 cats (a classic orange tabby and a black domestic short hair). A native of New Mexico he enjoys playing bass guitar in a punk rock band, cooking, and drawing (whenever he has any free time). He attributes his passion for animals to his mother who has fostered and rescued several dozen cats from the shelter in his home town of Espanola, and to his grandfather who was a veterinarian.
