Dimitra Kofitsas, owner of Tails of Rye, graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Masters degree in the Science of Physical Therapy. She spent 12 years as a human Physical Therapist, specializing in orthopedics, before deciding to devote her life to animals. She received her canine physical rehabilitation training through the University of Tennessee's Vet/PT Program for Canine Rehabilitation. She’s been working as a canine rehabilitation therapist for 8 years and opened Tails of Rye in 2006. Since then her state of the art facility in Rye, New Hampshire, has attracted an ever increasing number of dedicated pet owners and earned her the respect of the many local veterinarians she works with.
Dimitra played professional basketball for the Greek European Cup Team and also played for the Springfield Spirit Pro-Basketball Team. When she isn't working she spends her time mountain biking, running, training for triathlons, and playing with her dogs, Tobie, Jordie, Ellie and Charlie.
Bekah has a B.S. in Animal Sciences from UNH, with an emphasis on pre-veterinary medicine. She has worked with everything from hedgehogs to holsteins, but her heart is with her canine companions. Bekah worked as a vet tech on the west coast, a volunteer at the NH Audubon Society, a barn hand at UNH, an animal park intern and a wildlife educator, before happily landing at Tails of Rye. In a long list of exciting animal jobs, TOR is by far the most rewarding one she has found.
When she’s not at TOR, Bekah is spending time with her sweet pups and dear husband, Pete. She has a 12 year old Siberian Husky, Luna, and a 2 year old Rottweiler, Otto. Her tortoise, Stubbs, and African Grey parrot, Oliver, round out a full house of animal friends. She also enjoys reading, stand up paddle boarding and yoga.
