“Kate is an amazing, dedicated and resilient foster for DPA! She’s most recently tagged a beautiful litter of kittens – the Graphics Crew – and despite lots of quick adoption interest, she’s had to juggle many vet appointments, medication schedules and cleanup to get these babies healthy and ready for their new homes.
On top of that, she and her family agreed to temp foster for Bob Marley – a super sweet darling who needed to have his tail amputated, and then was quickly diagnosed with Panleuk (equivalent of Parvo in pups). He’s not out of the woods yet, but she’s documenting his treatment and recovery.
Through everything, she has gone above and beyond for these furry babies – sharing the good, the bad and the ugly of what it really means to foster – all with grace and positivity. Kate’s amazing husband and kids are committed right alongside her to loving these babes, and getting them healthy for forever homes – embodying the meaning of being foster parents!” -Caitlin Gilbert, DPA!’s Feline Assistant Foster Director
“Hannah has been volunteering on the rescue team for over a year and has been incredibly helpful in meeting shelter pups and getting evaluations and dog tests done, as well as on-boarding new volunteers. She has helped us save many lives by always taking great pictures and sharing lots of insightful information. Being a foster herself, Hannah knows exactly what our fosters are looking for and can speak to their concerns. She has always been positive, eloquent, reliable, and is a joy to work with. Not only does she help on the rescue team and fosters herself, but she also volunteers on DPA’s adoption team, is a foster representative, helps DPA write grants AND has recruited her friends to volunteer for DPA as well. I’m so thankful for everything she does to help us save lives!” -Elina K DeVos DPA!’s Rescue Director
“Mourad is constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to improve the Volunteer Team, including opportunities for his team to bond as a unit and brainstorm solutions together. This is all that much more impressive considering he lives halfway around the world and has never met any of us in person!” -Alyssa Gross DPA!’s Administration Vice President
“Allison is always at the ready to step up and share DPA’s story in creative and innovative ways. Although she does not live in Texas her love of DPA and our mission cannot be missed even all the way from the East Coast. Allison is key when it comes to streamlining and organization our marketing plan and voice. I am so grateful to have her on our team, she plays a pivotal role in ensuring our rescue animals are able to be heard and seen!” – Leslie Sans DPA!’s Executive Director
“Emmeline has fostered with DPA a few times now and man does she know how to get her fosters adopted! Emmeline has the gift of the written word and ability to make others feel connected to her foster animals. You may have seen some of her writing when her former foster, Lazarus, was looking for […]
