Our Team

Carol Lindenmuth: President

Founder and President Carol Lindenmuth was inspired by a life growing up with and loving animals, vowing at a young age that her desire was to save them all. As a current pet care service CEO, she dreamed of developing her own non-profit to assist in saving other dogs, as she had found so much love in rescuing her own. She knew very early that she wanted to give back to animals in a way that was equivocal to how they had enriched her life.
