Director of Adoption and Foster Applications
Tracey Rose has been involved in rescue off and on for most of her adult life, but even in her youth she would often find stray animals on the streets and work to find them homes.
In 2010 she adopted her first pittie, Sadie, and soon after began working as a part of the event planning committee for the Connecticut Pitbull Awareness Day (PBAD), working side by side with the event founder and director, and was also an original founding member of the CT Pitbull Project. Tracey has also used her voice to speak out for abused animals, and even stood with likeminded animal supporters at the courthouse to advocate for Desmond after his tragic death caused by horrific abuse in 2013.
In 2021 Tracey was honored to be asked to become a member of the board for Army’s Legacy and now has even more dedication and enthusiasm for helping the animals in CT and beyond.
For over a decade Tracey has run a long-standing and highly respected small business in Connecticut, and she brings those same organization and communication skills to Armys Legacy, handling the adoption applications that come through for our Legacies, speaking with potential adopters, and working alongside Amanda and Meredith to find the perfect home for each animal in our care. It is of the utmost importance that we give these animals an incredible life going forward, and Tracey is committed to ensuring each animal will know nothing but love and warmth when they leave our rescue.
Tracey is from New Haven and has cared for a plethora of animals in the past, both adopted and fostered – but currently her family only has two rescue dogs, Jovie and Gigi, and a Sphynx named Ziggy Stardust.
