Board of Directors

Hope Animal Rescue is excited to announce the new Board of Directors! We cannot wait to continue the organization’s mission rescuing dogs, supporting foster families, and engaging in public outreach to raise awareness about the importance of adopting.

During this transition, it is our first priority to care for and support our dogs, fosters, and volunteers.

Goals for 2021

In alignment with the mission of the rescue, the board has set new goals for 2021, including:

  • Continuing to attract volunteers, including those from diverse backgrounds, and expanding leadership opportunities for interested volunteers
  • Focusing even more on saving dogs who are seniors, bully breed dogs, and those with medical needs
  • Expanding fundraising partnerships and seeking new community connections
  • Increasing accessibility and transparency of Hope’s leadership group.

We thank the former board members for their years of service, and our current volunteers, fosters, and supporters for all their work and patience during this time of transition. We look forward to continuing to serve the community and to saving dogs in need.

We are always eager to have new volunteers join us! Head over to our volunteer or foster pages if you are interested in becoming involved!

Meet the Hope Board of Directors!
