Volunteer Coordinator

I've been a professional Pet Sitter and Dog Walker since 1999 and through my work, I naturally gravitated toward rescue.

I'm the Volunteer Coordinator for Rescue Faerie and have been volunteering, rounding up and training our volunteers since 2014.

I volunteered for several other rescue organizations before finding Rescue Faerie. Visiting the Los Cabos Humane Society in 2016, I was truly impressed with the work they do down there to save as many animals as possible and provide free spay/neuter clinics to the community.

My heart is full when I see our Rescue Faerie animals find their perfect homes and the joy that they bring to their new families.

My husband and I adopted our own Cabo dog, Scout in 2014 and he is the love of our lives!

Adoption Counselor

I began volunteering in dog rescue eleven years ago. My own little Lily is a rescue.  

I feel  fortunate to have become involved with the Rescue Faerie several years ago.  I have appreciated the opportunity to walk the dogs as well as take them to the vet for an initial visit when they come here from Cabo.  

My favorite part of volunteering has been doing showings and adoptions.  It is heartwarming to find the ideal home for our little dogs and cats, and many a tear has been shed as our little guys leave with their new forever homes!
