Meet the Team

Emily Miller

Owner / Operator

For Emily, an animal lover all her life, being an owner of Wye River Kennel is a dream come true. She has an MS in Accounting from University of Maryland. She has been owned by animals her whole life, rode horses growing up, and for the past 10 years has worked and/or volunteered in animal rescue. Along with running the kennel, she spends time loving on the rescue pigs, sheep, and goats that are also on the farm.

Scott Surguy

Owner / Operator

Scott grew up on a dairy farm in the mid-west so a love for animals was not a long reach. He got reengaged with the animal world through the Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County doing rescue work. It seemed like a natural transition to move into a boarding facility to further the rescue efforts and provide a resource to the community he lives in. Scott is also maintaining a professional career in technology sales as well as serving as a board member for the United Way of Queen Anne’s County.
