Dr. Kat Ellis is our President. She is also a teacher of visually-impaired children, (doctorate in education), and the wife of a very talented luthier (in case you need a guitar made or repaired). He is also an antique car enthusiast and a very understanding individual as making the world a better place for dogs-in-need consumes a great deal of Kat’s time.
Joeanna Jacobs is our coordinator. She rescued animals long before connecting with our group and started as a foster. Over the years she has taken on more and more responsibility even though she has three beautiful children, a husband and pets of her own.
We also have as wonderful a group of foster parents as you will find anywhere in the world! They tirelessly provide our dogs with the love and care needed to prepare them for their forever homes!
Canine of the Month
Sophie is a very sweet, friendly, affectionate girl who we rescued in February, 2019 from a house where she was left behind when her owners moved after being evicted. Neighbors told us that she has had at least one litter of puppies that all passed away because her cruel owners wouldn't let her get to them so she has been through a lot but has also come a long way! She is currently in boarding and has become a favorite of the manager and staff that are taking care of her. Everyone loves this special girl!
Due to Sophie's traumatic past she has anxiety and can be reactive with chaotic and noisy situations so she is on Prozac, (recommended by her veterinarian) which does help. One of her rescuers and a volunteer with our rescue has taken Sophie on regular trips to local parks which Sophie really loved! She loves going for walks, is good on a leash, with car rides, and does well in a crate. She's also house broken.
Before going into boarding she was in a foster home with many dogs and two horses and it was a lot for her. She is afraid of horses and would do very well as an only pet where she can get all of the attention that she deserves. A supporter of our rescue has sponsored her adoption fee in the hopes of getting her out of boarding and into a forever home so there is NO ADOPTION FEE for Sophie with an approved adopter!
To meet Sophie and for more information, please reach out to our rescue!
