Pet 2 Tingo

Accoyo to color, choose Tingo

Pet 2 Tingo is a joint venture between Kelie Kolanko and her Dad, Mike Doney. The farm began as an affirmation of life after the unexpected death of Bety Doney, Kelie's mom and Mike's wife of 56 years. Kelie and Mike feel that working with these beautiful spiritual animals provides a positive focus and serves as a tribute to Mom. To that end, the farm's first cria is named for Mom's favorite Christmas song, Tingo B's Silver Belle.

To fulfill the Pet 2 Tingo breeding goal of establishing an exceptional colored herd, we selected foundation females from local farms offering the best in colored genetics. As a result, our herd features award-winning alpacas from renowned, proven bloodlines, including rare colored Accoyo genetics. Our alpacas range in color from brightest white to darkest true black.

Pet 2 Tingo is proud to announce that Mike and our premier herdsire, Tag Zendo's Jimi Tingo, will be featured together as 'Mr. October' in the 2008 Columbia Alpaca Breeders Association calendar. The calendar, in tandem with a CABA Herdsire Auction, will be released February 2, 2008 with proceeds going to the association.

Pet 2 Tingo is excited about the future for both the industry and the farm itself. This summer promises to be a banner year for Pet 2 Tingo with cria from Alpacas de la Patagonia's Trauco, Alexander the Great, 6Peruvian Zen Do and Pacific Crest American Accoyos Centurion expected this summer.

We are a small farm, but we know good alpacas when we see them...
