Gina Pecho was raised in Orland Park, IL and enjoyed living in the Chicago Suburbs most of her life. It wasn't until she met her husband, Tony Pecho, that this city girl fell in love with a country boy and the country life along with it. Since adapting to life in a rural area, Gina has developed a strong passion for animals. Being a part of the Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County, she welcomes the opportunity to spend time with the many types of animals the rescue takes in. Being especially fond of holding and feeding the tiniest of animals, Gina specializes in the care of small, orphaned animals. In addition to nurturing motherless baby animals, Gina is also the Administrator for the rescue and manages many of the essential details to keep the office running smoothly. Every animal she comes in contact with has touched her heart in some way.
