Lilly Dawson


Lilly was born and raised in Texas. She attended Tarleton State University and graduated with her degree in animal science with a minor in biology in 2015. She moved to Iowa soon after and began her career working with dogs at the Animal Rescue League as a kennel technician. In 2016, she was promoted to foster coordinator’s assistant.

Lilly began working at Canine Craze in February of 2017. She says the most rewarding part of working with her dogs is being a witness to their learning process.

Lilly currently resides in Ankeny with her boyfriend and her cat, Sun Sun. She is an active volunteer with the Mid-Iowa Boxer Rescue. Lilly also enjoys dog-sitting for her neighbors and watching movies and TV shows in her spare time.
