Staff



We have a strong group of compassionate, caring and knowledgeable professionals who work diligently to improve the standards of care at the Center. We are constantly evolving and changing to improve the quality of care for our furry guests and to meet the ever changing needs of our organization.

Every employee is an integral part of our organization and without all of our dedicated staff none of this would be possible. The real unsung heroes, in no particular order, are our Adoption Specialists, Animal Care Technicians, Facilities, Receptionists, Veterinarian Technician and Rescue staff. Without these heroes, we could not effectively meet the needs of our ever growing animal population. Thank you all!
