Monkey's Pack Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue founded in 2016 by husband and wife team, Deb Batsie-Hernandez and Jimmy Hernandez, in memory of their beloved dog, Monkey.
Deb and Jim met at the age of 13 at Bennet Jr High and graduated together in 1991 from Manchester High School in Manchester, Ct . After graduation, as many do, they went their separate ways. In 2005 their paths crossed again, and on their second date they never separated. They eventually adopted a small black chi-corgi mix named Andy whom they affectionately referred to as "Monkey".
While on a hike one day, about nine months later, Monkey alerted Deb and Jim to a crate in the middle of the woods on a 90 degree day. Inside was a female orange tabby whom they soon adopted and named Emmie. The Monkey and Emmie duo completed Deb and Jimmy's small family. But as with most animal lovers, there's always room for more, and so Deb and Jimmy added to their fur family over time.
Deb and Jim are committed to helping animals in need. In addition to working full-time jobs, they each dedicate extensive time and resources to Monkey's Pack Rescue efforts.
