Deb is a lifelong Connecticut resident and joins the Board of Directors with over 12 years of non-profit experience with expertise in the areas of both fundraising and finance, having worked for three national non-profit organizations throughout her career. She resides in Wallingford with her husband and has two girls in college.
After adopting a rescued cat, Lucy, once Channel 8’s Pet of the Week, found abandoned in the back of a local school, she knew her desire to save animals would not end there. She has since adopted a Bully Bordeaux, Porkchop, who sadly passed in June 2020 from bone cancer, a feral cat named Max, a Dogue de Bordeaux named Audrey, and most recently an English Mastiff named Zeus. As a giant breed lover, she is all too aware of the challenges that are often faced when placing them in forever homes and is proud to be a part of changing the lives of these pups and their owners!
