Introducing Heron, a genuine animal lover with 16 years of experience in the world of animal rescue. She wears many hats, taking charge of backend operations, coordinating animal rescue efforts, providing adoption counseling, managing social media, and stepping in wherever help is needed.

For the past decade, Heron has been an incredible foster parent to dogs, specializing in medical cases and offering them the dedicated care they need to thrive. She finds great joy in mentoring fellow fosters and volunteers, fostering a supportive community of like-minded animal lovers.

With 12 years of dog training under her belt, Heron excels at teaching boisterous pups how to become well-behaved companions. She has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, constantly attending courses and seminars on dog training, health, behavior, and animal welfare operations. Her commitment to staying up-to-date ensures that she is well-versed in the latest standards, practices, and training methods.

When she isn't busy with rescue, you can often find her and her spouse hitting the road with their pack of three Siberian Huskies and an Australian Kelpie. Together, they've embarked on unforgettable adventures, exploring eight states and creating cherished memories along the way.

Her hands-on experience and unwavering commitment to continuous improvement assures that every dog and foster under the care of Welcome Home Sanctuary receives the support and love to ensure their well-being.
