Kelly’s dream of rescuing animals became a reality when she met Christy Stevens while they were volunteering at the same shelter.
Kelly has always been an animal lover and having been born with a disability meant she could always have a service dog by her side.
Her service dogs have always been a part of Kelly’s mission to help homeless animals. Wonka, her beloved golden retriever, entertained people and animals every day at our adoption center. PeeWee, her deaf pit bull mix, proudly served others as a therapy dog.
Kelly works with the HAV team to manage communication with fosters and adopters. She also ensures that all animal data is up to date. At any given time, that can be up to 400 animals!
“Her positive attitude is contagious,” says Christy, “and the way she lives her life is an inspiration to us all.”
