“Danica has taken on her role as Foster Director with such a fresh and positive approach. Danica has been working to improve and streamline processes, engage and support fosters at a higher level, and always does so with a calm, compassionate and objective approach. Danica has taken time away from her family and personal life to attend two Maddie’s Fund Apprenticeships to deepen her knowledge and gain new ideas about building foster programs, returning with wisdom to share with DPA so we are always continuously improving. Danica collaborates closely with the Rescue, Adoption, Alumni and Transport teams and is always a great partner open to new ideas and approaches to increase our life-saving and support our foster network’s needs.” -Andra Adams, DPA’s VP of Animal Operations
“Kyle went above and beyond for DPA! this year leading and coordinating one of our largest events, QuakeCon. Kyle TRIPLED our revenue from this event this year! Kyle’s love for DPA! and gaming can be seen in the growth of this event over the years.

Thank you Kyle for all that you do for DPA! and the animals we serve!” -Leslie Sans, DPA!’s Executive Director

She makes sure mama is a pampered, pretty princess during her stay with the Nida family and wants for nothing…”
