Patti grew up in New Jersey. She is a mom to one son, a wife and a behavior/autism specialist in a DFW school system. Her passion has always been to advocate for the underdog in school and in her daily life.
As a child, Patti often found herself rescuing lost animals. Her father always supported her early rescue efforts, and was her financial backer whenever she came across an abandoned or injured animal. Her father always said she had a gift, that animals in need had a way of finding her.
Patti’s journey with DogRRR has been a long road. She started as a volunteer, feeding dogs on Dowdy Ferry in 2014. She says it was overwhelming to see all of the loose, abandoned dogs in South Dallas. She knew at that moment that she had to help, that she had to find a way to help these animals find better living accommodations. She slowly began taking on more responsibilities in the rescue, and eventually began running the rescue in 2015. She describes her time with DogRRR as being a whirlwind, but that she’s so proud of DogRRR’s continued efforts to make a difference one dog at a time. Patti says she’s so blessed to have such an amazing group of people volunteering with our rescue, and that she sees DogRRR as a family.
