Melissa (Mel) has been with Headin' Home since its beginning. Mel uses her skills as a Veterinarian Assistant to help the rescue animals at the shelter. Mel is always wiling to help the rescue out by doing meet-and-greets, going on rescue roadtrips, taking classes to enrich the lives of the rescue animals, and volunteering at fundraising events. Mel will do anything she can to help the rescue animals.
Mackenzie (Kenzie) has been volunteering at the rescue since 2010. In those years, she has been fostering dogs, helping out at fundraising events such as Petapalooza, scheduling meet-and-greets between potential adopters, and helps monitor social media and the rescue email. She also enjoys taking the rescue dogs to her school and club meetings to help socialize the dogs to people, as well as taking them to pet stores to spoil them with treats and new toys.
Emily's love for dogs is apparent in all her hard work she does for the rescue. She helps organize fundraising events, schedules meet-and-greets, has fostered many dogs (and kept all of them), and enjoys road trips to save animals in need. Emily is the other face behind the social media accounts, such as Facebook and Instagram.
Xavier's strength (literal) is in training all of our dogs and will go to great lengths to ensure the dogs are having the best life possible while they are at the shelter. He treadmills the dogs, takes them for long walks, plays fetch with them in the park, teaches them manners, and takes them for bike rides. He made the current pvc slow feeders we use for the dogs at the rescue to enrich the dog's lives.
