are treated with kindness by all.

Executive Director

Lindsay serves as the organization’s strategic leader and is responsible for raising funds and creating partnerships that further advance our mission. She is a Certified Fund Raising Executive and has served the nonprofit community for the past seven years, previously holding fundraising positions at the Dumb Friends League as well as Freedom Service Dogs of America. Lindsay graduated with a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Denver where she also earned a certificate in Animal-Assisted Social Work.

 

As an avid animal welfare advocate and firm believer in the power of the human-animal bond, Lindsay is passionate about improving the well-being and safety of all animals. Lindsay shares her home with two adopted shelter dogs, and while she does not currently have cats, she has a sneaking suspicion that it is only a matter of time before one joins her pack...
