She considers herself to be “an extrovert in an introvert body.” Kraiger said that she can be outgoing at some points but can sometimes shy away as well. Although she considers herself the “quiet type,” she has always had a strong passion for animals.

Kraiger said one of her favorite movies is called The Plague Dogs–an animated film from 1982 in which two dogs named Rowf and Snitter escape from a research laboratory in Great Britain. According to Kraiger, the film proved significant to her because of how upset she was over the plotline. As a child, she found herself passionate about how cruel the dogs were treated and said she became empathetic to animals and her dogs.
“I have two dogs and I want more. They are both chihuahuas,” Kraiger said. “The oldest is Dante and the youngest is Link.”
Kraiger said she has not only been overtaken by emotion she watched movies about furry little friends. She has a strong opinion on animal cruelty.
“I think some zoos need improvement, most zoos are fine because they have like plenty of space and the animals are well treated but there are definitely some zoos that need improvement,” Kraiger said.
