Our People

We don’t just like animals, we love them. We believe animals make the world a better place. Animals are our family members, our companions and our inspiration. Whether we work on staff, serve as board members or volunteer as scientific advisers, each of us strives every day to make the world a brighter place for animals — and those who love them.
