Dawn and her husband Alex moved to the Abilene/Buffalo Gap area in March of 2020 after their son Brett was stationed at Dyess AFB. They quickly fell in love with the community atmosphere and caring individuals that make up this great city. Upon visiting Abilene Animal Services, Dawn identified a need to help improve the appearance of the shelter and the lives of the amazing animals that  end up there. During the summer of 2020, Dawn recruited family and friends to repaint the entire shelter, build a donation station out front,  and benches for the meet and greet room. Dawn’s ongoing volunteer work includes cleaning kennels, doing laundry and dishes, and helping visitors find their new furry companion. Dawn is extremely passionate about matching families with the right dog for their lifestyle and educating pet parents to help ensure these pets remain in their new homes for the duration of their lives. Dawn has fostered and adopted numerous shelter pets, with the most recent addition of Sawyer, making Dawn a first-time foster-fail. When not volunteering at the shelter or supporting All Kind’s mission, Dawn is the Director of Animal Care, Education and Compliance for Petco Health and Wellness.
