Name Lois Lema
My Bio I Live in New Jersey & am involved with Basset Hound rescue..specifically Mid Atlantic basset Hound rescue.

I am a retired Park Ranger with the National Park Service. Most of my career was spent at the Statue of Liberty National Monument/Ellis island Immigration Museum, but I also was posted at Fire Island Nat'l Seashore, Manhattan Sites, Gateway NRA & Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore.

I graduated from Hope College, in 1980.


I enjoy visiting national parks & civil war battlefields (aka cannon ball parks)..always wanted to work at Gettysburg & Antietem, love hearing the ghost stories & can tell some wicked ones myself . Enjoy nothing better than a great winter's day on the beach or a perfect fall hike in the woods with the dogs (okay my bassets don't enjoy the beach).

I can make history funny for you..& tell a story that will have you rolling on the floor...because I love watching people.

Dogs helped heal me so I rescue to help heal dogs.
and that about sums it up!
