Aimy Scroggins has been a Registered Nurse since 1999, and a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist since 2006. She had dedicated her entire professional career being at the bed-side and in the operating room. She has provided anesthesia care in a variety of medical settings the past several years. Her patients have ranged from healthy, out-patients, needing routine surgery and procedures, to sick medical patients, needing complicated surgery, to the emergent, trauma patient, needing life-saving surgery.
Aimy was raised around a myriad of animals, helping care for dogs, cats, horses, cattle, chickens, pigs, goats, rabbits, ducks and geese, to name a few. She loves horse-back riding, and even tinkered with barrel racing as a young girl. In 2014, a year-and-a-half after the death of her first Great Dane (Xena), she decided she needed to put her love for animals to use and started researching Giant Breed Rescues. In June 2014, in honor of Xena, Aimy took her first foster for Big Dogs Huge Paws, Inc. Since that time, she has fostered many Giants, helps with transports for BDHP and other local rescues, processes applications of potential adopters, performs home checks, and performs temperament testing for potential dogs coming into rescue. Since becoming a volunteer for BDHP she, along with a couple of other dedicated BDHP volunteers, has worked hard and helped grow the small group of OK volunteers. She attends many local rescue events, and educates the public about the great work that BDHP does for Giants, and specifically about the Yellow Dog Project. In March 2016, she wrote a BDHP featured article in a local magazine, People of Midtown.
Aimy resides in Tulsa, OK, with her husband, J.D. Walker, BDHP Alumni Donii, and Kit the cat. As Medical Coordinator for CO, WY, and NM, Aimy looks forward to learning more about the volunteers in those states and helping with the medical needs of BDHP Giants.
