GRACE KELLY HERBERT
Grace has been an active leader in the animal rescue field since 2007 when she was hired as the executive director for a local animal shelter. Her passion and commitment to the animals in her care led her to co-found Finding Shelter in 2010. Grace is the face and selfless leader of our organization.
Co-founder, Vice President, Treasurer
Following in his wife’s footsteps, Steve became active in animal rescue when Grace began her initial work at a local animal shelter. Helping co-found Finding Shelter, he is the artist behind our marketing and website.
For years, Linda was on the board of another local animal rescue. When given the opportunity to co-found Finding Shelter with Grace and Steve, she jumped! Linda brings her years of experience to our group and offers a treasure trove of ideas and insights to our organization.
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
A strong commitment to animals and the people in the community allows us the opportunity to assist and educate humans and save and protect animals. Our goal is to raise public awareness to the plight of animals and the beauty of adopting a homeless animal in need of forever loving care.
We carefully screen all of our potential adopters, allowing the best match possible between animal and adopter. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and medically treated. We do not discriminate based on breed, age or health status of the animal.
WHY WE DO IT
Our animals come from shelters that frequently euthanize for space, from families who can no longer care for them, and from owners who are terminally ill and need the peace of mind of knowing their beloved pet will be safe and loved. We also accept and place neglected companion animals who are released from puppy mills and need a second chance at a full and happy life.
