Our volunteers and staff all have one thing in common…a passionate dedication to saving animals and finding them loving adoptive homes.  Our Directors and Program Coordinators are listed below, but it takes a whole team to make everything work smoothly.  Our Volunteer Receptionists greet visitors, our Adoption Counselors help families pick the perfect pet, our Medical Team looks after the health of our cats and dogs, our Kennel Staff makes sure all our animal guests – often more than 100 on any given day – are fed and cared for, and our hundreds of Volunteers take pets out for fresh air and make them feel loved while they wait to be adopted.
