Anne has always loved dogs. As a teenager living in the country and young adult working in the animal field, she often came into contact with stray or neglected dogs, brought them home, vetted them and found forever homes for them. In 2013, she fostered a small emaciated dog for a small shelter, who she was diagnosed with a rare and expensive medical condition. Unfortunately, the shelter didn’t have the resources to help her. Anne named her Foster, worked to get her the surgeries she needed, and I guess you could say she was Anne’s first “foster fail”.
Anne is a foster coordinator with Dallas DogRRR. She helps screen and approve foster applications, and match our foster volunteers to dogs that need foster homes. During college, she was a vet tech and pet trainer and fostered dogs through shelters and small rescues. She currently lives in North Richland Hills with her husband, and their 5 dogs, and works as a medical social worker. She says she’s passionate about her volunteer position because DogRRR looks at the dog as a whole and addresses their emotional, mental and physical needs- no matter what. Once DogRRR commits to a dog, they are all in, and she would volunteer with no other rescue after her experience with DogRRR.
