Terrance was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, and currently lives in the Akron area. He works as an office manager and bookkeeper for a construction company. Terrance began his animal advocacy after meeting a bunny for the first time in 2019 and never looked back. Terrance states, "My beautiful bunny, Princess Tumbleweed, taught me how special the human and animal bond can be, and painfully allowed me to understand the need for pet loss support when she passed away in 2023. I hope to give as much back to the animal community as I can in return for everything the animals have done for me!"
