Otter Coultas: Owner of Otter's Ark
Otter Coultas is the owner and namesake of Otter's Ark, he served twenty years in the US ARMY and retired in 2016. Otter was born and raised in Oregon on a farm with seven siblings. When Otter is in the shop, he will often be found helping out, hindering or chatting up the clients or bathing dogs on busy days!
Otter likes to spend his little free time fishing, woodworking and hanging out at home with his goats, horses and dogs. His dream is to run a program where he can match veterans with shelter animals and have them train to be service animals for PTSD and other emotional support.
Otter has a huge heart and has yet to meet an animal he hasn't fallen in love with ( and subsequently tries to take home).
Otter Fun Fact: He is one of eight and they were all named after wildlife.
