The faces behind HHPR
Melissa (Mel) has been with Headin' Home since its beginning. Mel uses her skills as a Veterinarian Assistant to support the vets with the rescue animals’ medical needs. Mel is always willing to help the rescue out by going on rescue road trips, taking classes to enrich the lives of the rescue animals, and volunteering at fundraising events.
Mackenzie (Kenzie) has been volunteering at the rescue since 2010. In those years she has been fostering dogs, scheduling meet-and-greets between potential adopters, processing applications and helping monitor the rescue email. Kenzie also helps out at fundraising events and coordinates all of our volunteers. She also loves going on rescue road trips with Emily to save more dogs!
Emily's love for dogs is apparent in all the hard work she does for the rescue! She schedules meet-and-greets, has fostered many dogs (and kept basically all of them), and enjoys road trips with her favorite co-pilot Kenzie to save animals in need. Emily is the face behind the social media accounts, helps organize fundraising events, and helps monitor messages and process applications.
Xavier's (literal) strength is in training all of our dogs. He will go to great lengths to ensure the dogs are having the best life possible while they are at the shelter. The dogs love going on long walks with Xavier, playing fetch together in the park, learning manners, tagging along on his bike rides, and navigating introductions to new dog friends. He made the PVC slow feeders that we use at the rescue to enrich the dogs’ lives.
