Mackey has always been a dog lover as far back as his earliest memories. Growing up in Timonium, he worked at Pet Depot all throughout high school, which grew his knowledge of dogs and animals tremendously. After high school, he attended Stevenson University. He enjoyed his time there playing lacrosse with his brother and each summer would spend his time living and working in Ocean City. He loved the area and lifestyle so much he moved there full time once “school was out”.
Being on the shore full time for a decade he never lost his love for animals. Always helping friends with their pets when they would travel and volunteering over 100 hours at local shelters/ helping run and volunteer three fundraisers raising thousands of dollars altogether. In 2018 Mackey adopted his best buddy Oshie from a local shelter. You can often find Mackey and Oshie on his boat watching the sunset during the summertime. Mackey treats every animal like his own, has an extremely strong work ethic and you will feel relieved knowing your loved one will be in great hands under his watch.
