Welcome to My Personal Page

Since it was founded in 1984, Best Friends Animal Society has helped reduce the number of dogs and cats killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 800,000. That's incredible progress, but it means 2,200 dogs and cats are still being killed in America's shelters every day, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. And if we work together, it can be.  

I first learned about the NWA Best Friends Pet Resource Center plan in February of 2020.  I was immediately excited and wanted to jump in and be involved.  Since then I have volunteered as much as I can when in Northwest Arkansas.  I have assisted with animal transports, microchip events and adoption events.  I was honored to attend the groundbreaking ceremony on May 26, 2021.  It was an emotional day to see it coming together for those that have worked so hard on it.  

That's why I created this fundraiser.  

Tamara and Johnny Roberts announced a $200,000 MATCH to every dollar donated during the ambassador program, which means when someone donates $50 it automatically doubles and becomes $100! Tamara is the honorary chairwoman of the Leadership Committee, and Johnny Roberts is CEO of JB Hunt. Currently, leadership committee has raised $16M of the $17.5M goal and that puts us at 90% to goal. But we still have $1.5M left to raise.

Thank you for donating to help save animals' lives. Together, we will Save Them All.
